Choosing a web host for any website can be very confusing as there are so many options out there but when you are looking for Escort Website Hosting it’s even more confusing.
Not only do you need to read the T&Cs to see if Adult sites are allowed but as there is the Tech Jargon and lots of sales pitchy BS that may or may not be true
The learning curve can be very steep especially for a beginner and getting stuck with bad quality hosting is not what you want. You want to buy the best quality hosting you can afford, as an SEO I have seen people try to save $2 a month and it has been a costly mistake for them.
Do I spend $5 or $500 a month?
You would think that it would be as simple as search Google to find a solution but it’s not. When you are looking for Escort Website hosting it’s a little trickier as not all hosting allows adult content (due to FOSTA/SESTA you do not want any service based in the USA)
Some say that local is best but using a CDN with your site means you can host anywhere in the world as long as your CDN has an endpoint close to you.
Even when you find a website hosting company that allows your content, the hosting quality may be total rubbish so unless you know what you are looking for it’s easy to get stuck with a 1-year contract of crap service
A lot of smaller hosting businesses are ‘resellers’ which means they buy it form someone & resell it to you as a profit.
It’s hard to know what you actually need; shared, VPS, cloud, Cpanel, Plesk, WP-CLI, SSH access, PHP version control, Git integration…
Steer Clear of GoDaddy – Whilst they may allow Escort Website Hosting, every Developer I know says the same thing, it’s crap. I have never used it but it has a bad reputation for being expensive and slow and has the nickname ‘Slow Daddy’. Godaddy charges extra for a lot of things that most hosts include for free.
Whilst this may get me some hate; its best to steer clear of Escort Website Hosting Services
More often than not this is reseller hosting, bought to sell at a profit and by sharing with other adult sites this may affect your SEO
Hosting Bad Neighbourhood
Some SEO research says putting your site in a bad neighbourhood can impact your rankings so hosting. Unfortunately, Adult sites are prone to high spam scores which means you don’t want to be sharing space with them if you can help it.
As I have mentioned in blogs on SEO, Site Speed is vitally important for Mobile UX and quality hosting enhances your site speed. I suggest buying the fasting hosting you can afford with the best server set up.
The best hosting for the best price I have found is Siteground, A Bulgarian based company that is recommended by WordPress
At Agency Atlantic Digital, we design and develop for our client’s in WordPress
Many of Atlantic clients have their hosting accounts with Siteground. As they have their own hosting, they never have to be scared of losing their site; a story I hear too often from Escorts and Agencies (something that happened to me once too)
When you invest so much time, money and effort into your online presence, it’s best to have a domain in your own name (with privacy to hide the details online) and a hosting account as you can control with a big company that is not likely to go out of business. Also always keep an offsite backup of your site
A website, blog or online store is only as good as the hosting solution that powers it
Not only do Siteground allow Escort Websites, but it’s also blazing fast with excellent features & great customer service!
In August 2019 they added a super easy Control Panel for beginners. Plus there are free website templates that anyone can use
If you are considering getting a website developed or even if you are doing a DIY site be sure you get your own domain & hosting so nobody can take it away from you.
Have full control over your business
At Atlantic, we teach our clients how to have full control over their business & set their hosting up for them so they have 24/7 support & are not bound to us. It’s the right thing to do in my opinion but not all digital agencies do things this way. Often they request you host with them so they can make an ongoing profit.
We do our own and our client’s sites in WordPress as we like the flexibility and functionality it offers. WordPress is great for a simple blog but also great for more complex functionality and custom coding.
WordPress Hosting gives you full access to your website. You can backup everything & store it on my local hard drive.
Site speed is very important since Google changed to mobile indexing first mid-2018 – Hosting plays a part in site speed
For the speed, you get with Siteground its excellent value for money. I have worked on clients hosting which has been much slower + charged additional annual fees for a lot of the services that are included with Siteground. It’s easy to set up & they have excellent customer service if you are doing your own maintenance and get stuck
1. Choose your Plan
SiteGround has three plans. The startup Plan is all you really need for an individual I like GoGeek for Agencies and Businesses as you can have multiple sites which is useful for add-on domains & landing pages
SiteGround has three plans. The startup Plan is all you really need for an individual escort website
- The StartUp plan is perfect for people with one website that are starting now
- The GrowBig plan is great for multiple websites. The SuperCacher greatly improves WordPress and Joomla website speed
- The GoGeek plan is perfect for e-commerce and larger sites and more geeky development needs like staging and GIT integration
2. Choose your Domain
You can buy a new domain, or sign up with an existing domain. GrowBig and GoGeek plans include site migration too
3. Review, complete & pay
Unlike many other hosting providers Siteground’s advertised discount applies to any of the initial periods chosen during the signup process. I would suggest adding SG Site Scanner which helps the security of your site
If DIY isn’t for you, my Digital Agency Atlantic creates unique websites that are SEO optimised.
