    Hi there Moon, I’ve always been confused about hosting jargon but your simple explanation makes a lot of sense to me. Now I understand why cheap hosting services aren’t reliable. I think the same goes for the ‘free hosting’ ones too.

    But there’s one term – cloud hosting – what does that really mean? It is way superior than the three types you mentioned? Thanks for the clarification.

      Hi Cathy, Make sure to do your research well before you decide on a hosting service. First assess what you need and then choose one. That brings us to cloud hosting, which is a totally different concept. Cloud hosting is more flexible as you only pay for what you need. Using my analogy of a house again, let’s say you have extra visitors for a month and you need an extra room, no problem, you could just rent additional space to accommodate your visitor. The downside to cloud hosting is that the reliability really depends on the service provider. Also as it’s hosted in a virtual space, it could be more vulnerable to attacks, so these are the factors you need to consider too. Hope this helps and I welcome more questions from you if you have any.

    This was a helpful post. There are 101 hosting services advertising the fact that they are the best hosting service out there. It is hard for people to make the decisions as to which provider to use. Your post discusses the benefits that WA has to offer which I completely agree with. Lighting fast page loading, the option to use the service for free and test it out, coupled with some of the best support online make WA an option that most people would be wise to consider. Great post.

      Thanks Jon, I started out looking for info on hosting for my website a few years ago and was presented with so many different pricing and plans that I just didn’t know which one to choose. Sometimes having too much information can be detrimental! I’m sure many people are also confused by this information overload and I hope my post here gives a clearer picture and have narrowed down the choices available.

      You are right in all the unique features of SiteRubix, it is both lightning fast and secured, it is also fully protected from spams and malicious activity so we can put our mind at ease.

    I am of the belief that you get what you pay for. And if you don’t have to pay then you will probably suffer in some way. If I did get a free site would it get as noticed as a Dotcom site? I feel that Google would probably not take me for granted if I had a free site.

    I suppose that it doesn’t hurt to go with the free option. Then I can test the waters as it were. If I do this then can I then transfer it to a proper dot com domain later?

      Hi Owain,

      Once you have started your website, you are on your way to getting ranked by Google, regardless whether you are on free or paid hosting. For a new site with relatively little contents, it would take a while for Google to find you, but once you are indexed, you can keep on working on improving your site. I have known sites hosted on .siterubix.com that has got good rankings with Google.

      To test waters, you should first sign up with a .siterubix.com domain, and you can always transfer it later with your own dotcom domain name. It’s just a one click process and there is no transfer fee.
