Here’s what we promised you some time after June 1… A new host.
3W moved first. We were the guinea pig, the science experiment, ready for anything. In our experience so far, we’re happy to say we are more than pleased with every aspect of our new host. (yes us too)
- Excellent pricing (with an introduction deal you will not believe!)
- Blazing speed
- Private IP address for $30/ yr.
- Your first SSL certificate good for a year, is free of charge
- Site ground will move your site to their hosting environment, at no charge or in special circumstances, 3W will take care of your move with the same care we’ve always taken with it.
- Finally, we will register your company’s domain in your own name and turn it over to Site Ground for them to take care of for you.
- We leave your website in a tidy package for you and will remain at your service for everything as usual except your hosting and email services.
Please ask me (Gregg) if you have questions about any of the above.
So here you go…
1. Choose your hosting plan
3W recommends for most of our clients, The “Grow Big” plan. It’s perfect for WordPress and leaves you plenty of room to grow and a price tag that’s a fraction of what you’re used to paying!
- The StartUp plan is perfect for people with one website that are starting now
- The GrowBig plan is a great value for money offer, including the option for multiple websites and the SuperCacher that greatly improves a WordPress and Joomla website speed
- The GoGeek plan is perfect for people with e-commerce and larger sites, or more geeky development needs like staging and GIT integration
Step 2. Choosing Domain
We know most of our clients will want to bring your existing domain names along with you. This could also be your chance to add a second domain name and a new landing page to your online footprint. Remember the free service Site Ground offers in migrating your web site to their servers also!
Unlike many other hosting providers we looked at for you, Site Ground’s advertised discount applies to a whole one year period. Not just 3 or 4 months that many offer.
