How much can a web host affect your site speed?

Answer: A lot. 

More than a year ago I moved one of my sites to WP Engine – a powerful WordPress-only hosting; and the difference is shown in the graphic below (screen captured from Pingdom).

Site load time dropped from 900+ milliseconds to 500 milliseconds (almost 100% improvement) instantly after the switch.

Lesson learned

If you are having hard time trying to improve your site load time, do not ruled out the fundamentals (eg. web hosting) too easily. Sometimes the easiest solution could be the best.

Updated IXWebHosting Review

Do you know – +IX Web Hosting has been around for more than 15 years?

During this one-and-half decades, the company has survived two major economy crashes (dot-com and subprime mortgage crisis) and one big change in hosting business landscape (EIG acquired some of the biggest hosting brands). As 63% of U.S. IT businesses failed their first five years (and 71% of all businesses failed during their first 10 years), what IX achieved is simply remarkable.

My experience with IXWebHosting

I have signed up and tried IXWebHosting services once in 2012 and I am currently testing the web host for second time (thanks to Stepan who gave me a free account).

The attached link is an updated version of my IXWebHosting review (published on +Web Hosting Secret Revealed). In case you wonder if IX is right for you, this is the post to read. 

Quick review

In a nutshell, here are the pros and cons –

The Good's

Generous dedicated IP offers – Dedicated IP is a big advantage for many!

Affordable – Great price in relation to features.

English-speaking customer service reps located onsite – Great feature especially for US customers.

Reliable server – 99.9% uptime guarantee  (see IXWebHosting uptime review below).

Honest business practice – As mentioned, I bought an account in 2012 and cancelled within the free trial period. IXWebHosting refunded my money the next day with no question asked.

The Bad's 

Control panel – not easy to use.

Web Hosting Basics – What are your choices?

Usually when we talk about hosting, it simply means the companies that manage and rent out web servers for profit. There are four major types of web hosting services nowadays, namely Shared, Virtual Private Server, Dedicated, and Cloud Hosting.

Shared Hosting

Shared Hosting is the most popular hosting options for beginners and owners of small-to-mid websites due to its affordable pricing and user friendliness. As the name implies, your websites are hosted on a server that also hosts other sites. We call sites hosted on the same servers “neighbors”. Your sites will be sharing server resources and IP address (generally speaking) with their neighbors.

VPS Hosting

VPS Hosting is also known as Virtual Dedicated Hosting. This hosting option is one step above shared hosting but one step below dedicated hosting. From the outside, VPS works just like shared hosting – a large server is divided into smaller pieces and distributed to different users. But from the inside, everything is different – VPS hosting users will have full access to the server root (this means better server controls and security) and better hosting quality (as VPS is normally shared by less number of users).

Dedicated Hosting

Dedicated Hosting offers maximum control and server power as the users own the entire server – the server is yours and yours alone. There are generally two options when it comes to dedicate hosting – managed dedicated hosting and unmanaged dedicated hosting. For managed dedicated hosting, the hosting companies will help manage the servers on behalf of their users; managed dedicated hosting, on the other hand, requires the users to configure and manage everything by themselves.

Cloud Hosting

Cloud Hosting is “hosting on demand” – you only pay for the hosting resources you need (or use). It’s a type of web hosting that spreads the load of hosting across multiple physical servers. Cloud hosting eliminates single point of failure (as there are always another server ready to backup the failed ones) and it’s very suitable for websites that have a lot of traffics on certain days but low traffics on the other.

Disaster! Thousands of New Zealand websites could be deleted after major failures from a local web hosting company – 24/7 Hosting.

This is exactly why you shouldn't leave everything to the same party on Internet. Spread your risks to at least two separated parties – register domain separately from a web host.
