Here we discuss your website hosting service and if you’re new to it provide some background as setting up a new website can seem like a daunting task from the outset. Not only do you need to gather together the content, but using a CMS for the first time may appear confusing and complicated. Then you have to find a web hosting company who can keep the website online, while also having to learn all the new jargon that comes with it.
Thankfully, there are website hosting services that make life as easy as possible for beginners and we explain some of the options below.
The Krystal website hosting service
At JohnLawley.co.uk we make no secret of our admiration for the Krystal service as it’s one we have used for a number of years. They have proven themselves to be a reliable provider who work to high standards, and the simplicity of their service makes them ideal for beginners.
Part of their service delivers same-day migrations (started within 24 hours of your request), free SSL, backups & 99.99% uptime Guarantee. You can read more about their website hosting service by clicking here.
One of the best parts of their service is the in-house support team. Whether you are a beginner or more experienced, they can guide you step-by-step to ensure everything you need is in place and your website is running smoothly. They also have 24/7 emergency phone support options available on premium plans so no matter the time of day they remain on hand to help.
In terms of price there are three plans available which can be paid for monthly, annual or tri-annually, and the set-up process is fast and user friendly.
They are also a green cloud hosting company, which means all the power supplied to their datacentre is 100% renewable/clean energy. This has been the case since 2017, which ensures signing up with Krystal will not only allow you to enjoy a great service, but also reduce your carbon footprint along the way.
What other options are available?
There are a number of other web hosting companies available such as SiteGround, Blue Host and Hostinger, each with their own pros and cons. Generally they are quite easy to use, which should be appealing to beginners.
While these are decent enough services, based on our experience we would whole-heartedly recommend Krystal. That’s because when you take into account their all-round service, cost, support, use of green energy resources and accessibility, they really stand apart from their competitors.
Our time spent using Krystal on regular basis allows us to maximise the features and tools they offer to users. From developing WordPress and custom PHP websites (including design and content if required), to setting up essential services such as email, we help beginners deal with everything needed to have your first website up and running perfectly.
