Web Hosting Companies & Resources
Directly tied to search engine optimization is where your website is hosted. A good hosting company will help you avoid downtime which is critical to maintain top rankings. While we do not operate the web hosting companies listed below we have run tests to insure they have reasonable access speeds and that they have a minimum of a 99.9% uptime guarantee.
Should you know of any reason why one of the companies listed below should not be on the list please contact us and let us know including the reason. We will contact them and assess their eligibility.
Recommended Web Hosting Companies & Resources
We host a number of our test sites with HostNine and haven't had any problems. Reliable hosting with solid service.
We're HUGE fans of HostGator. They've repeatedly impressed us with thier pricing, service, uptime and the features and funtions they include.
Not Recommended Web Hosting Companies
We used host our site with Blue Host. Now we don't. Completley unacceptable period of downtime, one for over 24 hours and lackluster communciations. beyond "we're working on it and really apprecaite your business." Yet somehow they got their site back up in a few hours but clients had to wait about 21 more than that.
From spending 2 months attempting to get our site functioning on one of their servers (a site that works with even the most basic package from Bluehost) to getting a call out of the blue from a collection agent with no attempts to contact us prior notifying us that there was anything outstanding (the account was cancelled but I lost the will to argue about it) they're fairly high on our "not recommended" list.
We were NOT AT ALL satisfied with our experience with Valueweb. Click the link above for more information.
If you own or are affiliated with a quality web hosting firm that you believe should be on this list we are happy to hear from you. That said, companies listed on this page have basically been given Beanstalk's "seal of approval" in the eyes of our site visitors and we take this responsibility very seriously. There are specific criteria which are noted on our "Partnership Application" page. Don't bother submitting your website if it doesn't meet these requirements as you'll only be wasting your (and our) time.
