One of the biggest mistakes that I made when I first started blogging was not spending enough time researching hosting companies. I was so anxious to start blogging that I quickly selected a hosting company with little thought as to the quality of the service. Big Mistake! My web hosting experience was absolutely abysmal. My site was frequently offline for hours at a time and I received countless emails from people trying to access my site. I will never recommend this hosting company and believe that you should avoid it at all costs. What is the name of this terrible hosting company?
I recently switched hosting companies to improve the performance of my site. I noticed that my site had become slow and unresponsive at times. I was tired of the long loading times and found that my server was down all too frequently. I am pleased with my new hosting company as the site is much more responsive and easier to surf. I was able to switch companies without my website being down during the process. This is important because you want to keep all of your website traffic.
