Using a poor/cheap web hosting
Lesson 1 Module 1
We know it’s important to keep expenses low and make sure you’re getting a great ROI (return on investment) for the money you invest in your website. We’ve seen many agents and brokers mistakenly opt for an uber-cheap (or budget) hosting for their website.
You may choose a great IDX solution, client engagement suite, and domain name, but if you’re using a budget host, it’s like putting cheap fuel in a Lamborghini.
Some budget web host will provide poor performance for your clients and can even cause downtime for your site and business, which will cost you money in the long run.
You do not have to spend hundreds of dollars per month on a host to get great performance, but you may have to spend more than $5 – $10.
You want your hosting provider to be tailored for WordPress and to offer services like uptime guarantees, security, stunning customer support, and more.
