Choosing the right platform to host your company brand online is kind of a big deal. Your website is your company, your brand and it should represent the quality you, your employees and your company represents offline.

Most entrepreneurs don’t give it any thought, but what if your website is being hosted on a platform that search engines don’t like? Well, simply put, you won’t be found by new customers online.

Having a website that no one can find online is kind of like having a billboard in a desert – no one sees it.

I’m working with small business owners and solopreneurs every day. Most understand they need a website to be found in the new ‘search online’ world that we live today. Like everything else, quality makes a difference.

The quality of the platform your website is built on and the quality of the ‘host’ that gets your website online makes a difference.

How Important is Your Website to Your Growing Business?

Think about this … what was the last thing you bought?
Did you do any research for it online first?
Of course you did! We all do.

Does it surprise you to learn that nearly 50% of all Google searches are for local information? It shocked me! Yes, 46% of all Google searches are looking for local information. (Source: GoGulf)

So choosing the right platform to host your company brand makes a difference, even when it comes to shopping local.

This is the background stuff that most small business owners don’t know (and quite frankly you don’t need to know all of the nitty gritty, but you do need to know enough to make an informed decision – right?!)


Here is a comparison between two popular platforms that I hear most small businesses talking about.

Here is a comparison between two popular platforms that I hear most small businesses talking about. 



Bandwidth matters because it limits how many visitors your website can handle at one time. We build your website so it’s ready to grow as your company grows.



Plugins help your website function, for eCommerce, SEO and lots more.


If you have a WordPress platform you are never ‘stuck’, you can move your WP website to our hosting service (or any other) without worry. We have your back! We make it easy.


Want to change the look of your website? Sure, every 4-5 years you should. On a WP platform, no problem – you are never stuck!
