For extra precautionary measures, I have a variety of alerts set up that notify me about particular situations and changes that may occur on all of the websites we maintain. These notifications help me monitor and stay on top of things in an effort to eliminate and prevent sometimes unnoticeable problems as early as possible.

All Great Web Hosting Services are Equal, Right?

Over the past month I started receiving alerts that my clients websites were going down, and they would come back up usually within minutes. While I don’t believe anyone can claim 100% website uptime, this situation began to happen more often than I felt was acceptable.

A website’s down and uptime, along with other key performance factors are controlled at the web hosting provider level. Because of this and several other important reasons (including SEO!) I have chosen to use premier hosting providers for all websites built, developed and maintained at WPWBB.com.

To further negate risk I have used three different “great web hosting services” for quite some time with no known issues. So when these website downtime alerts arose I contacted the website hosting services provider and was assured they were aware of the issue and it was being corrected.

Unfortunately the alerts continued.

To remedy the situation the websites were moved to a one of the other two web hosting providers over the past weekend. Both hosting providers have excellent reputations within the internet community, so I can’t tell you why this occurred. All I know is I am no longer getting alerts!

Who Offers the Very Best Hosting Services?

Above is a video I found on YouTube by one of the two web hosting service providers used by WPWBB. I felt this video describes important factors that influence my decision in selecting a hosting company.

This article is written to help educate website owners about the significance in choosing great web hosting services.

Because it does matter.

While I can only speak from my experiences, both WPEngine and Flywheel have proven to provide outstanding website hosting services. We maintain many websites and I appreciate them because I know my clients online presence is in good hands.

And that’s important to me.
