There are hundreds of hosting companies out there. I know, I have used many of them over the years. All hosting companies are not equal, that is for certain. I got extremely frustrated over the years over the limitations and upsells some hosting companies forced upon a “newbie.” Eventually, I did something about it. Liverpool Hosting.
Liverpool Hosting is a private hosting service for my clients only. SiteKnight, DCC or the In Our UK platform, all are offered or are automatically enrolled on to Liverpool Hosting. Liverpool Hosting is simply the best hosting platform out there. A big claim to make, but it is true. Free SSL, SSD servers, ultra-fast and reliable UK-based data centre. The hosting includes everything I needed over the years with “no upsells” whatsoever.
You can choose a virtual private server that can be configured according to your budget if you want to do it yourself or the shared option, your place in hosting paradise, ring-fenced from the outside world and the others on the same server. I confess I do not do all of the support myself. I only attend the level two support requests, general support requests are handled by an outsourced company of knowledgeable, courteous and professional technicians who will respond quickly, sometimes in two or three minutes at quiet times, but will help you until whatever issue you are having is fully resolved to your satisfaction: 24/7, 365 days a year.
I have always had an interest in Linux programming, but I do offer Windows alternatives. The Windows choice does not have anywhere as near variety of plugins or services compared to the Linux server choice. This is because there are not so many developers out there supporting the language. There is nevertheless a choice.
The cost of my shared Linux hosting is less than the cost of a Starbucks coffee each month. The Liverpool Hosting service is a no contract, pay as go subscription. Liverpool Hosting has a money-back reliability guarantee.
Liverpool Hosting is a service I offer with pride and passion. It is not about money. As long as the service sustains my overheads, I concentrate on the clients marketing needs. Forming a common bond is a relationship I strive for. Internet Marketing must have a solid foundation in the form of good hosting. However, the hosting should just be set up and forgotten about. Online entrepreneurs have enough things to concentrate on without worrying about their hosting limitations, up-sells or reliability.
