I learnt so much about affiliate marketing from Ministry of Freedom’s 9-week course and you can know more about it through the Ministry of Freedom Review on my blog. I came to know that to be a successful affiliate marketer, you should build a great website. For this, you’d need a domain and a web-hosting service.
The domain is the identity of your website and through web hosting, it becomes accessible to everyone on the internet. Hosting your website by yourself is tricky and requires server management skills.
Luckily, many companies offer hosting services. Let’s look at a few hosting companies that work the best for affiliate marketers.
Cloudways is one of the fastest hosting servers as it uses content delivery networks. Content delivery networks (CDN) distribute the service spatially to reduce delays in loading the content.
It also offers you 5 cloud service providers including Google Cloud and Vultr. The initial setup could be a little complex if you have no prior experience with hosting. But its pros outweigh the complexity.
- A2 Hosting
A2 Hosting, formerly known as Iniquinet, has been providing satisfactory hosting services for the last two decades.
If you’re a beginner, A2 Hosting can be a great choice considering its unmetered bandwidth and built-in server-side caching (for advanced users only).
The maximum number of concurrent HTTP connections allowed here is 50. So, switch to a bigger hosting service after your website’s traffic picks up the pace.
HostPapa‘s web hosting services come with a free domain name (if you already have a domain name, you can transfer it), reliable storage, and over 400 business apps. It assures superior performance with low -density SuperMicro servers and offers a seamless customization experience with its intuitive Website Builder.
Did I mention that HostPapa is the only hosting company to provide one-on-one guidance for its customers to get started?
DreamHost offers shared hosting, DreamPress (WordPress hosting), VPS, DreamObjects, and DreamCompute. So, there’s something for everyone.
Through DreamHost’s monthly web hosting plans, you can avail advanced spam filtration and protection.
Both monthly and yearly plans offer the same features but differ only in pricing.
This company offers three types of servers for its customers, and each of them meets the requirements of enterprise websites. You get to experience this quality at an affordable price (the basic plan starts at $20 per month).
If you produce a lot of video content, their CMS hosting is excellent for it.
Say hello to the world’s most eco-friendly web hosting company, GreenGeeks. It puts back 3 times the utilized energy in the form of renewable energy credits (REC).
Starting at just $2.49 per month, its Lite version equips new bloggers with hundreds of essential features. However, the pro version is popular among growing websites with rapid traffic.
If unmetered transfer, free drag and drop builder, and unlimited domains (pro and premium) are what you’re looking for, GreenGeeks is the place to go.
HostGator is highly recommended for WordPress websites. It is a customer-friendly company that currently hosts about 10 million domains. Its success can be attributed to its reliable hosting and lightning-fast response time (200 milliseconds) despite peak traffic.
Though the Hatchling plan is good for an average blogger, I recommend going for the Baby plan as it offers multiple install support.
Kinsta offers premium features on all of their plans and uses state-of-the-art technology like MariaDB and Nginx. The interface is beginner-friendly but the features are far beyond advanced.
Its network is highly secure with a firewall-protected by Cloudflare. Additionally, their team runs uptime checks on all their client sites every 2 minutes (that’s 720 times a day!!!). Support is their number one priority. So if you’re stuck anywhere, you have experts at your service 24*7.
- Media Temple
Media Temple is known for its high quality that is on par with its prices. The company doesn’t shy away from mentioning its high prices and terms clearly, which means you won’t be misled.
Their beginner plan, Deluxe package is quite impressive with unlimited storage and unmetered bandwidth. Need I say more about the premium plans?
It uses clustered servers that give an excellent uptime on shared hosting too. The only disappointment is that you don’t get a free SSL certificate, as in other hosting services.
RoseHosting is well-known for the performance of its shared servers. Unlike several hosting companies, RoseHosting doesn’t oversell the bandwidth and therefore, you get what you pay for. Plus, the spike in renewal costs is negligible.
They’re so confident about maintaining their uptime that the company promises to refund 10% of your monthly fee for every one hour of downtime.
I hope this list helps you in figuring out which hosting service will suit your marketing needs. If you have any questions, drop them in the comment box and I’ll try my best to answer them.
