You don’t need an expensive hosting to have a fast website (interview)

expensive hosting

Where is the article?
It’s in the title, we’re trying to optimize the content to make this page loading faster.

Sounds weird. Why did you publish this… title?
To save you money. Maybe you want to buy something only if you really need it.

You don’t know what I need. Now let’s go to the point, do you have a proof of concept?

You’re cheating, you’re using an expensive hosting!
$1.45 per month is not that expensive.

Cheap hosting shared plan

So why does this website load so fast?
Because it is well optimized and served by Cloudflare, we have an article on this topic.

So, if a website is not well optimized, an expensive hosting makes it faster, right?
In the same way buying a Ferrari makes you drive faster if you don’t even have a license.

I prefer Lamborghini. Speaking of money, how much do you pay for Cloudflare’s service?
Zero, we’re on free tier.

The only free cheese is in the mousetrap, don’t you know?
You’re right, indeed Cloudflare offers premium services if you need something more.

I got it, you’re affiliated with Cloudflare!
Cloudflare doesn’t have any affiliation program.

I’m quite confused. Why do many bloggers have a “better hosting” on top of their suggestions list to make any website faster?
Mainly for two valid reasons:
– They think that’s a good suggestion
– They advise services to earn money

And what’s your “valid reason”?
On Google’s developers blog there is a list of techniques for improving site performance, and “hosting” is not mentioned. We’re just remarking it without telling something new.

Anyway, an expensive hosting makes me think of it as more reliable than a cheap one.
Good point, that peace of mind has no price.

Do you mean the need for an expensive hosting is just a state of mind?
I am not a psychologist! You may want to use one if you need 24/7 high-quality support or advanced security features. In some cases, they can be like a business partner for you, which is great.

Is having fast sex as important as having a fast website?
Yes, if you’re a busy woman like me.
