5 web hosting tips from the pros

Web hosting pros tidyhost offer some invaluable advice on picking the right plan for you


1. Ensure that you choose the right domain

When choosing your domain, make sure it’s easy to remember and resembles what you are offering. Customers are more likely to come back if they can remember your URL.

2. Create clear, concise website content

Keep the content on your website clear, informative and more importantly, relative! Avoid any duplication of content on different pages as this can affect your rankings on search engines.

3. Utilise SSL certificates to stay secure

More sites are moving to SSL security to protect their customers from the ever-increasing threats on the web.  Search engines are now ranking sites with an SSL higher than those without.

4. Make sure you choose the right plan
