Where Should I Host My Business Website?

Having to create your business website can feel really stressful, but it shouldn’t be.

Today, I chat a little about best practices when hosting your website!

For our clinic, we use a mix of Weebly and a WordPress blog. Back when we started our site, WordPress was the best place to blog as it was far better for search. Nowadays however, feel free to just use the blogging feature on whichever site provider you choose. Wix, Weebly, Squarespace—they all have great blogging options.

If you do choose to use WordPress, you’ll have to take a few extra precautions because it can be hacked easier than some of the other providers. We recommend using a separate hosting site like SiteGround or HostGator instead of doing everything through WordPress, as it is more secure.

If all of this sounds way over your head, I’d recommend just sticking with Weebly. You can buy your domain, host your site, and easily design it all from there!

My main tip is to make sure you own your website. A lot of people will pay someone else who has server space to build out their site, and you want to make sure that website follows you, not them. If the relationship falls through with that person, suddenly you are out a website.

If you’re struggling with the actual content of your website, my great friend Christine has an awesome workshop where she gives you all the tips you need.

    Enjoyed the article and love what you are doing! Could you perhaps link to the WPHosting pages on HostGator and Siteground? I ended up looking them up, but could be helpful for future readers.
