A good WordPress web host serves these files faster and hence decreasing the loading speed for the website. This in turns help in better user experience.
Good WordPress hosting provide uptime guarantee
Uptime refers to the time that a website is up and running without any error or interruptions. Ideally 100% uptime is the expectation but in real world it’s almost impossible to achieve. Most of the good WordPress web hosting provide 99.9% uptime.
Good WordPress have better customer service
I personally rank customer service very high in choosing a good web WordPress hosting. Even knowing my work around cpanel management I find it hard at times for hosting management.
Customer service includes various factors such as the quality of team members you will be touch basing with, the time they take to solve the issues faced, amount of time they are online or over the phone etc. A good website hosting provides better service or provide an option for priority service either at some cost or at higher packages. Personally I think it’s worth it.
