Web Hosting for Bloggers

How important is a reliable web host? Well, very. If you are running any type of website, obviously the most important thing is to keep the website up at all times, or at least as much as possible.

At this day and age, web hosts are a dime a dozen. There are literally hundreds of them out there and it is difficult to find a good web hosting company. I’ll admit that I am no expert when it comes to web hosts but I will give you a piece of advice. Do not be cheap when when choosing your web host. If you have the money to spend, spend it. Do not be stingy especially if you are serving potentially viral content. Once people start spreading links to your website on Facebook and Twitter, the traffic will flood in. There is nothing worse than your website crashing when people are pouring in.

This is even more important if you are trying to make money off of your content. If your website crashes while your content is viral, you are literally losing money as the clock ticks because the Internet does not sleep.

If you are unsure of your host, do not hesitate to ask around and read. It’s good if you have friends who are webmasters whom you can ask. Do not rely on just one person or just one resource.

Choosing a web host is not like buying a shirt where if you decide you don’t like it after you buy it, you can either return it, give it away or just keep it in the closet. As I have said, if your website crashes, you might be losing money. And even if you are not making money out of your site, it’s bad branding for you when people visit your website and see errors. Even if you choose to change web hosts, moving from one host to another is not easy and things can easily go wrong so it’s best to get off on the right foot.

Again, choose the best web host you can afford. Good luck!

Should Have Gotten A Watch Winder

With the exception of gadgets, I am the type of person who won’t buy something new unless I terribly need it. I don’t buy new stuff if I still have something in place. For example, even though my mom and my gf are complaining that my slippers are already old and dirty, I refuse to […]

Scrubs are sexy

Nurses have the sexiest uniforms, period. There is something about nursing scrubs that is just irresistable. No, it’s not exactly lab coats or medical wear that we are talking about, it’s strictly scrubs or nursing uniforms. I even saw on one funny statement shirt that says – “white scrubs are see-through :)” I think it […]


  1. Thanks for your good offer bro… 🙂
    But I think I need my own plan coz’ I had half dozen websites but in different hosting(including 2 in dreamhost). and am planning to add more sites, that’s why I need my own hosting, where I can place all my sites in one host(probably PH based, reliable and one the best 🙂 )…

    again, thanks for the offer…

  2. @ariston I use iHost Green It’s not a top-of-the line host. But they are very cheap and they serve my purpose. So far, no major problems naman. 🙂
