Here you will find options for your web hosting service. It is super important to do your research before selecting a provider! Ask other bloggers which one they use and also look up reviews on them. I didn't do my research when I started my first blog and ended up paying for it! You can read about that ordeal here. So I'm going to list a few of the more know services and you can decide which one is best for you! Just click below to see what each one has to offer.

Choose the Best Web Hosting Service
It is so important that you do your research and choose the best web hosting service for your blog. While they all serve the same purpose (hosting your site), they vary in many aspects including site speed, site downtime, quality of customer service, and pricing. I've mentioned two of the most popular web hosting services below. SiteGround is, by far, the best of the two. I say this after having been a previous customer of Bluehost and canceling my service with them. SiteGround truly offers the best customer service (although you'll rarely need to contact them). They provide much faster site speed and I've not had a single day where my site has gone down since switching. With Bluehost, my site was constantly going down for various reasons. When your site is down, you are losing visitors AND affiliate income!!
Once you get all signed up with your host, be sure that your domain is set to HTTPS (and not http). This step is often overlooked by new bloggers. The HTTPS means that your site is encrypted with SSL (it is secured) so it protects your visitors and is also a requirement under the new GDPR requirements.
I now use SiteGround for both of my blogs. Find out more about Siteground here.
