Website hosting (or web hosting/domain hosting) is the way you make your website visible to the world. Think of it as renting space on a computer to store all your files for one or more website so that your potential customers can see you. You therefore need a reliable, accessible host. There are so many hosting companies out there so how do you choose?

At Smartarts Design we use (and highly recommend) Siteground for hosting for the following reasons:
We have used other hosting companies over the years and have found Siteground to be far superior. They host over 250,000 websites and rate highly with customer satisfaction.

They have a 24/7 chat support, as well as phone or ticket access-you choose. The customer service guys are beyond helpful, on the rare occasion we’ve had an issue, they’ve resolved it in a matter of minutes. They didn’t waste our time telling us how to do it, they came back with “all done, apologies for the issue”. No hanging about for hours, no waiting for a response, all done. Just great!
They have an average uptime of 99.99% documented in the last 3 months. This means our website has been visible constantly. No downtime.

For WordPress there’s a simple one step installation and if you are transferring from another host it’s free…and easy!
They boast some of the fastest loading times for your website. Absolutely essential for SEO, your bounce rate and a good user experience.

Get your domain name for FREE and for life. This can often cost a considerable amount so it’s a valuable consideration.
They back up your website daily, giving you great peace of mind. If things go horribly wrong, they have a very recent back up of your website available, minimizing your downtime.

Plans start at just $4.95 per month. (see plans and signup)

They have WordPress experts on hand to assist with any queries you may have.
