There comes a time when you have to accept that cheap is not always good and in terms of my hosting it is currently free as it is provided by the ISP (plus.net) as a bonus to the broadband package. It has been great as it has enabled me to try out blogging with WordPress. However I think the time has come to take my blog more seriously.
I have been writing regularly for over six months so have proved this is not a passing fad and with my increasing readership I think it is time I spent some money. I am planning on moving my hosting to a specific hosting company as the current connection to the database is getting increasing erratic (in fact almost to prove a point, the servers went down yesterday for several hoursas I was writing this post).
However, I don’t know which company to move to, so I am looking for suggestions on good hosting companies. Obviously I want to be able to host WordPress and I would like to host more than one domain name. Please remember I am based in the UK in case that prevents me going with an overseas company.
I am also planning to change my theme to make it more personal and suitable for the site. I could have spent the time doing this several months but as I don’t know PHP (yet) it would have taken a long time and I decided it would be more effective to spend the time writing posts. However now I am understanding WordPress better and I am writing regularly I feel I can spend some time to improve the look of my blog.
So now I am starting to take my blog more serious, do you have any tips of other things I should be considering to improve?
