A website without a host is like a painting without a canvas; you’ll never see it. So, every website needs a host. But not all hosts are equal. In addition to price, look for speed, reliability, commitment to up-to-date capabilities and support. We use and recommend HostGator and BlueHost.
Websites also need regular maintenance—software updates (including themes and plug-ins) and backups. If you’re a super DIY-er, select the first plan to do this yourself. Or, if you’d like expert help and protection, select a Ready Set Mango plan.

*Automatic backups, e-commerce capabilities and hacker detection and protection are provided with extra cost for BlueHost plan; they are included with the price of the ReadySetMango plans.
Have your own website host and can’t bear to part?
We understand. After all, we love HostGator and BlueHost. So if your server is a good one that’s not either of those, we will do our work on it for a one-time $75 fee. Please note: We do not perform backups or software updates on private servers, nor do we train you how to do them. We also do not keep copies of website files; so please do regular site backups, or you will be very, very sad! We also recommend protecting your site from hackers and other site vulnerabilities using a daily site scanning service like SiteLock or Sucuri.
