Frequently Asked Questions About Hosting Services

Nginx vs Apache, we give it to Nginx based on previous tests and the current common client needs.

SiteGround has a StartUp plan that comes with great features and can start as low as $3.99 a month for the first year.

Do I really need 24/7 customer support from my website host?

We recommend a 24/7 online chat support at minimum. Unless your website is operating exclusively during business hours only. Sites can go down, it’s nice to get them back up as quick as possible.

Can I use GoDaddy, BlueHost, HostMonster, WP Engine or other hosting?

You are welcome to use the hosting of your choosing, but keep in mind different hosts have hidden costs, older platforms, on old tech that is slower, less effective, and less flexible.
