Choosing a reliable host for your website


Our proofreading course emphasises the need for a website if you’re planning to start a proofreading business.

And that means you need a reliable host. If your site goes offline, you lose business and credibility.

We use Cloudways. We moved to them because we needed a dedicated server that could cope with the size of our new website and the large volumes of traffic we receive. They also carry out daily backups of our site and are available 24/7 on live chat if we experience any problems.

We’re very happy with Cloudways, and can recommend them.

If you’re building a small blog or website, then GoDaddy, Heart Internet or 123Reg are as good as any, and they allow you to use your existing domain name. Our partner organisation, Digital Creative Hub, also provide fast and reliable web hosting solutions. Find out more

We stopped using 123Reg, because they did not provide email forwarding, which was a peculiar lack.

If you use Blogger, they provide free hosting for you. We used to used Blogger for our old student lounge and can recommend them too, although their blog’s are pretty limited with design and functionality options.
