Experienced Blog Hosting
If you're a blogger, tell me about your blog. If you're not a blogger yet, why not? I believe you're either a victim of technology or a survivor of it. To survive, you should secure your online presence with a domain name. And what's a great way to utilize your domain name? With a WordPress blog.
With a WordPress blog, your ideas reach the most people possible, year after year, regardless of what the latest trend is. YouTube, Instagram, you can embed those in WordPress too. Most people end up choosing WordPress for the plugins. WordPress also has themes, which I customize for my clients.
My personal blog
has 12 million pageviews, and my clients have millions of pageviews too. Serving this many pages is a little tricky. Fortunately, I have 30+ years of experience configuring this software.
What's the story here? I started blogging in 2004, writing about art, software, social media, and various ideas I had. I wanted to blog professionally, so I studied Magazine Article Writing at UIW in San Antonio. Eventually, one of my class assignments about Myspace ended up getting millions of pageviews.
Managing this growth was difficult. Day by day I learned how to scale web servers, databases, advertising, and everything else. For a while I kept these skills to myself, but now I help other people. Check out my resume
My WordPress technology "stack" has been tested over millions of pages. So I know it works.
And I'm continually revising my process as I find better solutions. As a blogger myself, I use my own platform. So we're in the same boat. My strategy is to keep that boat afloat.
If there is a problem, I'm just as concerned as you are, and you'll have my cell number.
Why is TexasCoders better? A larger WordPress host might take shortcuts to increase profit at the expense of speed and security. But my goal is not
to grow "no matter what it takes." I would rather have a few happy, successful clients, than many clients I'm not serving to the best of my ability.
Consider this too: In the event of a disaster, does my competition have the manpower to restore your backups?
It's unlikely. When a large host has a major failure, they're overwhelmed with thousands of calls, because they took on more business than they could adequately serve.
With my competition, who's responsible for keeping your server online? Tech turnover is high. The average tech employee stays only a year or two
. If that happens, who will remember your blog's particular requirements? Overall, it's hard to get ahold of the system admin directly responsible for your blog. Conversely, the buck stops with me, my clients have my cell number.
I create all kinds of software for my clients. Whether you need a simple change or an entirely new system, tell me about it. I do not outsource. All work is done in-house. I focus on your technology, so you can focus on your business. Send me your idea and I make it work. For custom code, my rate is $50/hour invoiced weekly.
