  1. If your site is small and doesn't get too much traffic, you can get away with running a web-server (and other stuff) on a Raspberry Pi (or equivalent) from your home with your home Internet service. It'll perform well enough and use little power. Once your site "pops off" (🤦) and you start pulling in a lot of traffic and using a lot of bandwidth, then you should go with a real web-host. I'm running my site from an Orange Pi and it's great (I just wish I could get nginx to work with WPMU. 🙂

  2. Shouldn't a video like this start with a discussion of the website's actual needs? What if all they need is static hosting, like millions of sites, including full-fledged JAMstack web apps? There are amazing free options for that, such as Netlify and GitHub Pages, etc, without ANY of the issues you're attributing to "web hosts", with major brands using these platforms for PRODUCTION HOSTING. You are WAY BEHIND, dude, and should not be making videos on this subject. Also where did you get your ancient information on what you're calling "cloud hosting" and "web hosting" but by which you really mean SHARED HOSTING, which is a super common industry term you seemingly have not heard??? Anyway, your info must be at least 10 years old, since before much of the industry shifted to true cloud hosting with variable resources. Sure, some shared hosts suck, as do many VPS hosts. You really did not make it clear that it's mostly the same exact providers offering the same thing. There are tons of non-VPS setups that have resource protection and guarantees using any number of strategies. And you did not even mention any special needs beyond "WordPress hosting". TONS of your viewers would do great with FREE static hosting or SHARED hosting, yet you're pushing VPS and WP Engine, which is $35/month at its cheapest? COME ON, DUDE. DO BETTER.

  3. None of my website get hit hard with heavy traffic. I never seek for heavy traffic, it just there to send people there to check things out. Everyone I have is free web hosting. Never had a problem with any of them. It's up 99% of the time. I know their maintenance times. I have three websites on three different free web hosting. Not counting my blogs, which are also on free hosting sites. Free is good for me, because I don't like to pay. It's more entertainment for me and the practice of making websites. Never had a heavy spike of traffic, so I don't need a ton of bandwidth. I guess one is sorta used as a commercial website. But it's local so it's not like the whole world needs to be hook to it. I just saying free is good to, if you just want to get something out to show just a hand full of people not for the whole world to see.

  4. There's one more thing to consider, there's not only skills required to maintain VPS, there's a lot of time needed as well, and I mean really A LOT! So if you sole entrepreneur it doesn't really matter if you have those skills more important if you have time for it.
    There was a time when I hosted my own email server for all of my sites on postfix, it was fun but then Google came around with their solution and I switched to it, suddenly I realized that now I have more time for my family and a gym!

  5. Great video thanks Chris! Just looking at switching to a managed vps do you have a video on them? Also can you do a video on your 2019 recommendations for hosting providers? Looking to get managed vps and setup a nextcloud using ur video u did.

  6. For website hosting, I decided to go with one of the WordPress.org recommended webhosting site (Bluehost , Siteground ). I hope, I made the right decision. Will you cover Firejail Sandbox, on Linux on this channel? I'm reading a lot of conflicting information online about this application (many security flaws).

  7. ok linux guys a have a question , wtf is that scroling so slow on lynux mint chromium or firefox ?? why sount have no base or base option sound is terible ? why wifi is so slow ? i have simple wifi adapter works fine on windows 10 , so this are siple things user wonts from os and on lynux i have to turn up side down internet to found solutions and than type sudo comend that dont work some does some dont so any coments or solutions plzz ?

  8. wpengine starts at $35, for which you get 25k visits/month 10gb storage, 50gb/month bandwidth limit, but only 1 site… depending on the type of site, most don't need ANYWHERE NEAR 10gb storage or 50gb/month. unless you're expecting lots and lots of hits per day, that's just a waste of money imo. – i've been using digitalocean (a vps service) for years, they have great support, lots of 1 click installs for a variety of popular services if you're into that kind of thing, lots of distribution choices, it's all ssd storage so it's generally really fast, and they have scalable plans starting from $5/month… I currently have a few of my personal sites on their $10/month vps plan which includes 1 virtual cpu, 2gb ram, 50gb storage, and 2tb of data transfer/month, and they have a TON of excellent community-sourced documentation, great support, and I've had nothing but excellent experiences when working with them and their services. use my link and you get a free $50 credit to start, and if you choose to continue, spend over $25, I get a $25 credit for referring you (which i would totally do even if they didn't have an affiliate program) – https://m.do.co/c/dda4b7aa880d

  9. Hello Chris!
    Sorry if it has nothing to do with the video but can you make a video about how to clear cache on debian? like the apt stuffs, or basically the system in general
    Great video btw, keep up the good work!

  10. Kindly do a video on Mail servers. Host vs pay for the services. And also if you can squeeze in another video how to configure a mail server. Most videos on YT are 2+ yrs old ….

  11. If Chris finds more valuable to this community, which he decided to embrace, to recommend the right thing instead of winning money from this subject, then we should be proud of such an exemplar way of treating the audience.
    But that folks, is not losing money, there is a difference between NOT winning a bite for doing the right thing and losing whats already in your pocket. We always tend to literally state that NOT winning = losing and it is not.
    After all, when you decide to do only one thing like it is the case of Youtubers, that only one thing is really a ton of possibilities that the youtuber have to know how to mine in order to convert them into profit sources. I don't think that NOT making profit of a 5% of them would be bad if the intelectual value actually balance the whole thing.

  12. I tend to host sites with a shared hosting plan and really haven't had any issues with performance. Support can very from web hosting company to web hosting company. For me, it's mostly about not having the time to admin my own server (which I used to do, many moon ago). I've been curious about trying out VPS hosting, but haven't had the time to try it out. Over-subscription of servers certainly can be a problem, but I've noticed some hosting companies monitor their servers pretty well, so they aren't "maxed out" all the time.

    One issue people considering shared web hosting should keep in mind is being hosted on the same server with a site that's been blacklisted for whatever reason. In this case, your site can also experience issues because it's assumed the server is engaging in questionable activity. For example, if you host email in your domain on the shared host, you might not be able to have your site send email (contact form submissions, for example) because no mail servers will "talk" to your server, due to the server being on a blacklist (DNSDBl, RBL, etc.).

    Great video! Thanks for posting!

  13. Many people may think that this video is anti commercial. No, it is not. User defense and knowledge are the difference. How many people during your life in the world of web design, including me, have not had such problems or have fallen into the trap of micro businesses that resell services or that are simply unstable or are a complete garbage? I applaud Chris making this kind of content for those who have the wrong idea that a $ 5 hosting is the best thing that can happen to them. It is a complete no no. The reality of a good hosting service costs money, and in this virtual world in which we live, a service that can always show your website quickly is the best you could want. Of course, with $ 5 a month, you can't make it. It is a good wake up call. For more than 20 years I have had clients who have moved to cheap accommodation, 90% of them return, the other 10%, they simply do not care … Having said this, if you see this video as something negative, you will not It matters your own money, or maybe you have a lot of money to waste. Have a nice day.

  14. Chris, it's "versus", not "verse". Two syllables. "vur suhz". Google the pronunciation and it's right there. And it's "ess specially", not "ek specially". "Et cetera", not "ek cetra". Sorry to be a prick but it's cringe worthy to hear an intelligent adult mispronounce basic words of his own native language.
