Web hosting is a necessary part of any Internet Marketers’ arsenal.
Next to your domain name, you need the web space, Internet bandwidth and facilities to operate your blog, sales page, affiliate marketing or domain parking page.
It’s also one of the most vexing exercises to look for a good webhost.
Some may promise unlimited bandwidth, but only host 1 domain.
Some may host unlimited domains, but only provide 1 MySQL database (one database is required for each blog, forum, content management system like Joomla or other facility you need).
So many promise marketing hype.
I was in a dizzy frenzy about 2 months ago.
I had many domains, but each web host I signed up with let me down (I’m still reeling from $300 worth of web services purchased from GoDaddy!)
I eventually settled on a web host not just because of its facilities (quite impressive), but because of a blog.
Not any ordinary blog, but the CEO’s blog.
As you might already be familiar, some blogs are just the PR mouthpiece for product launches, quarterly financial results and other corporate communications. Gobbledygook stuff which frequently isn’t worth reading.
Matt Heaton‘s blog is something special.
Matt is CEO of Blue Host.
Matt blogs about issues related to the Internet and specifically, web hosting.
Read it if you enjoy a no-holds barred, insideer’s view of the web hosting world: GoDaddy’s policies and the complexities of an industry where referrals could be equal to a year and a half of revenue from each client (imagine paying out referrals equal to 18months of sales to your affiliates!).
I was pumped and signed up with Bluehost after reading Matt’s blog.
I’m happy with the support for wordpress, joomla, forums and plan to keep my business with them.
Heck, my comment was even published.
I like doing business with people that I like.
It’s worked out so far.
If you’re serious about Internet Marketing, consider Blue Host.
