Website Hosting FAQs:
If you don’t see the answer to your question, contact us.
Can you provide hosting for businesses that aren't in Richmond, VA?
Yes, we can, and that’s the great thing about working over the internet. You don’t have to be local to Richmond, VA, to benefit from our website hosting services. Even better, you don’t have to have a business that’s local to Richmond to take advantage of our website maintenance and management services. Each of those plans comes with hosting included.
Why do you use third party hosting and not privately host?
There are a few reasons we do the work for you and use third-party hosting.
- Customers have told us they didn’t enjoy learning cPanel and other hosting platforms. So we will take care of optimizing your hosting for the best speed, health, and security.
- It’s more affordable. We are not purchasing expensive servers, running a data center, or provisioning data circuits. We’re just performing the maintenance for you. You get the benefits of more affordable hosting, and you will be working with someone you can easily get in touch with. Not some faceless person in another country.
- It’s much easier to upgrade. Just let us know and you don’t have to worry about anything. We will upgrade it and the only extra cost is the cost of extra speed. No extra labor.
- Worry-free. If we’re running a server in our office, if it crashes all is lost. Third-party hosts have backup servers to keep your site up and running.
In a nutshell, our hosting service provides you with a professional who can maintain all aspects of your website’s hosting so you don’t have too.
What hosting services do you have experience working with?
We have had clients on certain hosts and used some others for ourselves. This website itself is hosted on Siteground. But, here’s a list of all the hosting services we have had experience with in the past.
- Inmotion Hosting
Our preferred host is Siteground, which is why we migrated the M.J. Web Design site to their servers. Siteground offers fast, WordPress optimized hosting at affordable prices.
We also know the ins and outs of their hosting and get make sure your website runs optimally on their servers.
Can I host my own website?
You sure can. But, you must set up a web server, obtain a public IP, make sure you have enough bandwidth, etc. If you don’t feel you have the technical expertise or time to learn it, then you would want to look at third-party options. Finally, if you also don’t have time to manage and optimize the hosting on your own, that’s when hiring M.J. Web Design to maintain and manage your website becomes ideal.
How much does web hosting cost per month?
You could pay anything from $3.00 a month up to $800.00 a month depending on what your website requires. Many third-party hosts will multiply the monthly charges and provide a discount if you pay annually. If you’re looking to run a local service-based business site, small blog, or single-page site, we recommend going for the cheaper options, as long as you know how to get the most speed out of the site as possible.
Aren't there free third-party hosting options?
Yes, they do exist, but they have their limitations. Most free web hosts will plaster advertisements all over your website. Nothing is a bigger turn-off than a big banner over your beautiful website advertising the hosting company. Second, a lot of free website hosts have very limited resources, which means even the smallest of websites can underperform, resulting in lost website traffic and business. Furthermore, many free hosts will limit the number of users allowed on your site each month, and they don’t offer the best security.
