That free hosting service might be costing you more than you think

Laptop Screen with Hosting Concept.

Let’s be honest here; picking a service to host your website is not exactly the most fun part of the process. It’s pretty boring actually. And it’s not like anyone is going to see it or even know the difference anyway.

So if no one is going to see it and no one is going to know the difference and it’s SOOOOOOOOO boring, why should you bother paying for a hosting service when a simple Google search will get you a few hundred perfectly good free options in about five seconds, right?

Hey, we get it. Free stuff is awesome. Like if there was a button I could click that would bring me a plate of onion rings right now, yeah, I’d probably click it. Fact: Free onion rings are the best kind of onion rings and it’s not even close.

The thing is, when you pick a free website hosting service, you’re sacrificing a lot to save a little. Take transfer speed for instance. A lot of those free options out there will turn your website into digital molasses. You don’t want that (and your customers DEFINITELY don’t).

And you know these companies can’t pay to keep the lights on by just giving stuff away. So how do they make their money? By selling advertising…on YOUR website. So while you were looking to save a few bucks, your startup just became an unwitting sponsor of Bucky’s Bait Shop, Big Al’s Tire & Auto, and Uncle Joe’s Drive Through Taxidermy (I hear they do great work, by the way).

What we’re saying is that even though it’s not the most fun part of bringing your website to life, you really should be investing in your hosting services. At Vervocity Interactive, we offer three basic plans to make this as easy as possible. In addition to one-on-one support whenever you need it, all of our plans come with daily backups, plugin updates, custom analytics reports, and a whole lotta SPEED!

And while they’re not free, they are as close as we could get.

If you’re looking to grow your customer base by improving the look and quality of your site, give us a call at 217-222-1451 today.
