WHY USE ZAG FIRST HOSTING?
Website hosting is a thankless task. Most non-technical people think you can “launch a website” and it will run perfectly, with 100% up-time, and cost next to nothing. While there are places where you can get free or near free hosting, there are several problems with this approach:
- Your website will not be backed up – so if there is a problem, you will lose content.
- Your website Content Management System (CMS, such as WordPress), plugins and components will not updated. As a result, the website becomes vulnerable to viruses, malware, and hackers.
- Your website will not be fast. One reason cheap hosting is cheap is because it is not fast.
- There is no one to call if there is an issue.
When there is a problem with a website hosted with a cheap hosting service, it can be a mess. Your site could be down for days, you could lose months of content updates, and it normally takes 10-40 hours of billable time to sort it all out. It is a mess – and it happens a lot.

We make sure that your entire site is backed up every day. If there ever is a problem, we can easily restore it back to how it was the day before the issue.
