WP Engine

Our recommended managed hosting solution for WordPress. Typical shared hosting companies care about one thing, and that’s keeping their cost as low as possible. They may staff low-paid entry-level employees who don’t know the first thing about WordPress, and they use less-expensive servers. You may have learned first-hand that typical cheap providers will shut your site down if you get too much traffic.

At WP Engine, they don’t do that. They source the fastest bare-metal hardware, then set you up on a cluster of servers with the fastest caching out there. They hire the experts—and pay them well. If you run a WordPress site and need the highest level of security, stability, and support, WP Engine is your best choice.

  • Accounts included managed upgrades, daily backups and other optimization tools done by the web host. This only includes “core” updates. It excludes premium themes & plugins.

Bluehost provides budget shared hosting for WordPress. I used to highly recommend them, but their service level has dropped. If you have a small website, this may still be an option for you.

We love Bluehost because it’s easy to manage WordPress.

Shared, Reseller, and Dedicated Web Hosting

A web host is a company that has computers that are hooked up to the internet 24/7. These computers are called servers and they are assigned IP numbers in order that they may be found by other computers hooked up to the internet. It is on these servers that all your web files are stored. Consider the domain name the “street address” and the web host the “house”. We recommend hosting from HostGator.

NOTE: Do not purchase SiteLock, Secure SSL or any special offers when purchasing hosting. If your account needs anything extra our team will discuss with you with specific instructions. Carefully unclick any special add-ons to avoid extra billing.

  • Your website to appear online (“www.yourdomain.com” in a web browser)
  • Running the FREE WordPress software (setup by our team)
  • UNLIMITED email addresses at your domain name (can be forwarded to Gmail or other service, but this brands your company with every email sent)
  • MULTIPLE domain names hosted at no extra cost (except for “Hatchling Plan” from HostGator). Use this to setup shortcut addresses for specific campaigns or products.
  • Backups (our team also will do a secondary daily backup offsite)
  • 24/7 Technical support

Yes, in order to keep your costs down, Virtuallinda Media has created a standard system using our  recommended host and those savings are passed on to you.

In rare cases, we have made an exception, however, this means that we need to bill hourly for all servicing of your webhost. The costs to do this will quickly surpass the cost of switching to our recommended hosts. We do not recommend this, and reserve the right to turn away a project based if the hosting will we a problem since our team wants to focus our energy on building great business brands, not solving technical problems that can be avoided in the first place.

Please follow the links below to signup for our recommended hosts for the easiest setup and lowest cost.

We will guide you through the change. Before work begins with us, you should find out:

  • FTP (File Transfer Protocol) access (hostname, username, password) to copy any files on your current server.

PS - I know it’s easy to get overwhelmed by reading blog posts full of ideas, tactics and tools. Be honest...

  • How frustrated will you be trying to implement this on your own?
  • How much time will you waste if it's not your next best step?
  • Did you just take the time to read this but you won't make any changes?
  • Or are you ready to take a small next step to build your brand?
