Which is Better – a Hosted Website Solution or Self-Hosted Website Software?

Which is Better – a Hosted Website Solution or Self-Hosted Website Software?

One difficult decision that many small business owners face is whether or not they should pay monthly fees to have their website hosted on a platform that’s maintained by a website solutions provider, or whether they should download website software, and host the website themselves. Even if you choose to self-host your website, you are still paying monthly fees – to your web host.

In this video, I’ll talk about:

  • The difference between a hosted versus self-hosted website.
  • The pros and cons of hosted versus self-hosted web solutions.
  • The two factors you need to consider before you make your decision.
  • The one key consideration if you decide to self-host your website using open-source software that will affect the quality of your life!
