Not all web hosting servers are alike, some are faster
As Internet adoption continues to ramp up at a brisk pace around the world, people want faster websites and search engines do too. With WordPress running nearly 22.4% of the Internet (at the time of this post n 2014; in 2021, over 42% – check wordpress.org for current statistics), having a compatible and speedy web hosting server to run a self-installed WordPress site/blog is essential. 3 web hosting companies are suggested by the makers of WordPress — Bluehost, DreamHost, and Laughing Squid.
During the past 15 years of blogging, djchuang.com had been hosted on DreamHost for a season, then on Site5, and then on Bluehost most recently. Now it’s time for a new season. I did a bunch of research for a faster web hosting server (2 of the most often recommended WordPress hosting services were WP Engine and Media Temple).
What tipped it for me to go with A2 Hosting was its Solid State Drive (SSD) Hosting option; as I was fine-tuning the site speed for SocialMediaChurch.net (my podcast site, also running on the same shared account), I even got faster speed by turning off the caching plugin! Wow! Yes, faster web hosting servers do cost more money, it will make you and your website visitors happier.
