WEBSITE HOSTING

NOT ALL HOSTING PROVIDERS ARE CREATED EQUAL

Renting space on a server must be a highly profitable business model because there are a ton of hosting providers. Not all hosting providers are created equal… and a good majority of them are just not good at what they do.

I have used and or worked with most of the popular hosts at one point or another.  Many of them I refuse to work with… I will leave them nameless.

There is one that I use to host my website and all websites that I build… WPEngine.
