Don’t overspend on website hosting

I’ve noticed website hosts being a little more aggressive recently with upselling us ‘better’ hosting. In some cases, they’re offering useful services which might be worth the investment, such as hacking prevention, easy backups and the like. However, some of the premium offerings may be unnecessary and the sales pitch can be a little ‘creative’. Google has said quite clearly that being on a shared IP address, or having the content delivered through a ‘content delivery network’ is absolutely fine. For a normal, everyday corporate website, a standard hosting plan offered at a reasonable price should be just fine.
