Safe Smart Fast Local Hosting

wordpress_web_designSkagit Marketing works with a LOCAL hosting company.  If you are going to convert to WordPress or have a new WordPress website designed for you, we HIGHLY encourage you to use Steam Hosting.  We have seen way too many WordPress websites with cheap hosting companies shut-down unnecessarily for days costing the clients thousands of dollars.  We have also had to deal with too many security breaches with these cheap hosting companies.  You can get cheap hosting for around $6.00 month, but we don’t advise it if your website is an integral part of your business.  Steam Hosting runs $20/month for most websites.

Why you should use Steam Hosting…

WordPress Hosting – MANAGED UPDATES

When a new version of WordPress is released they will update it for you. They do the same for plug-ins and they even run diagnostics after all updates to check for problems.

WordPress Hosting – FREE MIGRATIONS

Have an outdated WordPress site? Choose Steam Hosting as your WordPress hosting provider, and they will migrate your site from your current host for free.

WordPress Hosting – SPEED

They use multi-layered caching and a reverse proxy configuration for serving static resources that will make your WordPress site fly. Google now considers the speed of your site as a ranking factor. Don’t let a slow site affect your ranking.

WordPress Hosting – BACKUPS

Knowing that your site is backed up is a good feeling and that is why they back their customer’s websites up every single day. Their remote backups are stored using AES 256-bit encryption and have a 14-day retention period.

WordPress Hosting – SECURITY

WordPress is fantastic software proven by the fact that – as of this writing – over 72 million sites use it. Because of this popularity, WordPress has become the target of many scripted attacks. They constantly monitor their Web Application Firewall and block typical attacks while automatically scanning your site for malware. Rest assured that they do all they can to prevent your site from being intruded upon.

Cheap WordPress Hosting

cheap_wordpress_hostingLooking for reliable cheap WordPress hosting with decent customer service and an easy WordPress install?  We recommend Hostgator for cheap WordPress hosting if the website isn’t an integral part of the business, it’s a start-up business with a limited budget, or your website is fairly static.   We prefer  clients to purchase local hosting as we know the owners personally and have enjoyed a couple IPA’s with them.  We trust them, we know they will take care of you, and your website will be lightning fast.  However, we also know that not everyone is going to pay $19.95/month for local hosting when they can pay $3.96/month.

Upfront: We receive a referral fee if you purchase hosting after clicking on cheap wordpress hosting from HostGator.  This fee allows us to complete a free website evaluation of your current website and/or cover the cost of an initial client meeting.

Cheap WordPress Hosting:  GoDaddy or Hostgator?

We referred clients to GoDaddy for years.  However, after having many issues with their customer service, excruciating slow websites, and unacceptable down time, we have now switched over to hostgator for cheap WordPress hosting.  If you are looking to convert to WordPress for dynamic websites (and you are looking for cheap wordpress hosting on a shared server), then use my affiliate link to purchase your hosting and also receive a free website evaluation from Skagit Marketing.
