Best Website Hosting Platform For Your Online Affiliate Business

So, you want to enter the online world of affiliate marketing, and you need to find a platform that will host your website but choosing the best platform has been bewildering in the sea of different options for you to consider. Many hosting companies say they are the best website hosting platform for your online affiliate marketing business. However, you have read some conflicting information.

You can search and search online and find lots of conflicting information whether the reviews are excellent, great, average, poor or bad; you will find that some of the best so-called web hosting platforms are really not what they seem. So let’s take a look at some of your needs, 20 companies that I have seen on the internet that other authors have written about that differs from what Trust Pilot star rating has on them, and a comparison of three top web hosting platforms and my pick of the best website hosting platform.

What do You need?

You need a hosting website platform:

  • That lets you focus on writing lots of content, include audio, images and videos. 
  • Receives and lets you leave comments on your article, so you to interact with your readers.
  • It fits within your budget
  • Provides educational tutoring, help and community support
  • That is easy to use and
  • Allows for growth

Many website hosts allow you to have professional and functional interaction with your audience online, and they all say they are the best. So, my selection is based on Trustpilot star rating

Most Popular Website Hosts or Platforms 

Some hosting platforms claim they are the best on the Internet, but if you go through Trust Pilot, you will find that some should not be listed in the top 10 best platforms. I believe 4 stars and above rate, the best, and I also believe it is a personal preference. You may have tried a few of these platforms out already, and there may be others that I have not included.

Top Twenty Web Hosting Platform

During my research on Trust Pilot, I faced a warning on Hostwinds, saying 

Warning! We’ve detected misuse on this page. “We’ve detected a number of fake reviews for this company. Don’t worry; we’ve removed them.We take the integrity of our platform very seriously, and when we uncover misuse, we put a stop to it.”

You may come across similar warnings. Trust Pilot take reviews very seriously.

Unlimited Web Hosting is 4.9, and the star rating is based on 2,412 reviews. 95% is excellent, 2% are great, <-1% is Average, <-1% is poor and 2% are bad. So let’s have a look at what they have to offer.

Conclusion

Free blog hosting platforms are great as a trial initially, but you need to be aware you could have problems changing to a different platform. So you will need to ensure that your free or inexpensive hosting platform allows for changes at a future date.

    Hello, and thank you so Much for sharing I give thumbs up to Wealthy Affiliate also, Wealthy Affiliate is so amazing and will equip you with all that you need to know when it comes to web hosting. Wealthy Affiliate is my first choice.

    • Yvonne Bray

      Hello Norman. Thank you for your comment. It’s great that you agree with my findings. Some of the other hosts were rated by other affiliates as number one for instance Blue Host was one. Yet I’ve found them much lower down the scale.

  • Millie Zeiler

    Prior to learning about Wealthy Affiliate, I already hooked up with another web-hosting service and will admit that I don’t quite get as much out of them as I do with what WA has been able to do. As a result, I carry over everything I learn from the sites I’ve been able to develop through WA’s hosting system to the one I wish shared the same amount of features.

    I’ve also worked with GoDaddy and Weebly. Both are okay, but Wealthy Affiliate is so much better! With GoDaddy and Weebly, you’re flying blind! This is not the case with Wealthy Affiliate!

    I hooked up with Wix before learning about Wealthy Affiliate and even attempted to transfer everything from there to WA because it’s pretty easy to tell who has the superior service. I do like Wix, but they really limit me from making full use out of keywords and meta tags. This is something Wealthy Affiliate does not do, so my ability to have better sites that get decent SEO ranks is so much better. Again, with Wix, it’s limited.

    • Yvonne Bray

      Hi, Millie; thank you for leaving your informative comment. I agree with you regarding Wix, I did try a few free ones a couple of years ago, but I found the training was limited. As the old saying is, You get what you pay for, so true. When it comes to a complete learning platform, Wealthy Affiliate provides it, hands down, and so much more. I love the webinars and training videos; most of all, I love the helpful community at WA.

  • Brianna Kraushaar

    I really appreciate the information you have provided. I found the chart to be an amazing part of this article as it let me see what I needed to know immediately. It actually led me to reading the rest of the post! I like the sound of the Unlimited WebHosting. I am going to check it out! Thanks!

    • Yvonne Bray

      Hi Brianna
      Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment. I think you will find Unlimited Webhosting is a great platform. But they do not offer the same benefits as Wealthy Affiliate. However, it greatly depends on your skill level. Glad to hear you read my post and that you are going to check out Unlimited Web Hosting. Let me know how you go.

  • Dan

    Hi, really useful to see this list of hosting providers and what to look out for. Wealthy Affiliate sure looks like it has everything needed and is reputable.

    • Yvonne Bray

      Hello Dan, Wealthy Affiliate is the best. I’ve search for quite sometime before selecting them. The have everything that I need and I’m sure they will have everything you need as well. Just remember it takes time to build a business.

  • Joseph William Stasaitis

    Thanks for sharing your insights into these web hosting platforms. I have used a few of them before but never heard of 20i previously. I have also heard good things about Fast Comet as well. Currently, I use Wealthy Affiliate for my main sites, but use Site Ground for a specific project. I appreciate this information. All the Best.

    • Yvonne Bray

      Hi Joseph thank you for leaving your comment. I found your response interesting especially about Fast Comet and that you use Site Ground for your project. I hope you get good support and training from them.

  • Louise Barry-Taylor

    Hi Yvonne
    Wow, you really have provided a very insightful and factually based article here! Thank you so much.
    I am a big Wealthy Affiliate fan – everything I need for my online businesses is provided by Wealthy Affiliate. The training truly is worth every cent! As you already know, they don’t stop there though. So much value is offered within WA – the keyword research tool, site security, backups, incredible technology and so much more!
    Blessings always
    Louise
