Where to host your website?

Lesson 17 Module 3

One consistent feature of all 24 of the most successful real estate websites from our customers is that none of them use a budget or shared host.

We understand the need to stay within budget. You have to get a good return on investment (ROI) on your marketing, and while a website with a great home search is required for any successful real estate marketing strategy, many agents cannot spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars per month on hosting their websites.

The great news is that you do not have to spend that much on hosting. Simply stay away from the super-cheap $5 – $10 per month shared hosts.

Some of the hosting options we see used by these top 24 sites include:

  • Digital Ocean
  • Google
  • AgentFire (as part of their website offerings)
  • WpEngine
