Choosing the right web hosting company is just as important as using quality content to promote your online business. If you are running a wordpress blog then it is very important you use a linux or unix based web host to ensure you have all of the available components and back end tools and applications to get the most out of running and promoting your wordpress blog.
At a minimum wordpress requires PHP and MYSQL to operate, and while it is possible to use a Windows web host to run WordPress, your blog would lose valuable Linux applications that could weaken your ability to use many SEO tools and techniques, use 301 redirect commands, and the loss of .Htaccess to add additional levels of functionality and control of your wordpress sites pages.
Even if you are on a tight budget there are plenty of budget hosting plans that will allow you to run a WordPress blog site with all of the tools and applications you will need for far less than you think.
Because web hosting is a highly competitive online service, with a little research on plans, pricing and features you can easily find the right hosting plan that will give you all the tools you need at a price you can afford!
It is also important that you investigate any web hosting companies you are interested in before you purchase their service, because there are many web hosting companies located outside of the U.S. that are considered “bad neighborhoods” by Google and other search engines, and this could block your ability to achieve ranking within the major SERPs.
Don’t be afraid to take your time and ask detailed questions with the sales staff of any web hosting providers you are interested in, and do ask for written statement or contract that outlines all of the features of your hosting account with details on amount of disk space, bandwidth, and other important features.
