Finding the right hosting company to look after your photography website is very important.
Good customer support is very important because you will at some stage need to contact your hosting provider for help.
You also need to look at using a CDN (content delivery network). WPX have their own CDN which will really help your website download speed.
The CDN will cache your website locally around the world including your images. I would always use a CDN.
Some hosting control panels can be very difficult to use. I have used cPanel and Plesk but like the look of what WPX are doing with their control panel
We just need a simple control panel that is easy to use.
Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) is used for secure communication over a computer network.
WPX give you a free Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) certificate to make your website connection secure, which is important because Google likes websites with SSL.
Out of all the website hosting companies WPX seem to be offering the best hosting package at the moment.
Wordpress powers over 30% of the websites on the internet, but what is it? A short video will help you understand what WordPress is.
Using WordPress with a fast hosting company like WPX, Kinsta or WP engine will give you the best package. Self hosting is the way to go if you want total control of WordPress.
Installing WordPress is quite easy. If you need any help I offer a website consultation service for photographers. Please use the contact form below if you need help.
