Thinking of starting your own personal blog or a website for your business?
If yes then I’m pretty sure you are giving an ample of your time researching about your great idea – the meaning of blog, the things you should know to set up one or even the cost of making a website. Basically, it’s like you’re thinking of putting up a business and you want to know the things you should do to launch your own venture after you write your business draft plan and put your ideas altogether the next question is – where will you put your business location? It’s the same as having a blog.
After you sketched your ideas – the blog title, your blog’s niche and its contents – the ideas you will put there – the next question is – ‘What web hosting provider should I choose?’ Before answering that question let’s talk first the meaning of it.
WEB HOST PROVIDER MEANING
According to Wikipedia web hosting service “is a type of Internet hosting service that allows individuals and organizations to make their website accessible via the World Wide Web. Web hosts are companies that provide space on a server owned or leased for use by clients.” So in simple terms, web host provider is your ‘space’ on the internet. Without it, you cannot create a website just like you cannot put up a business without an address.
That being said I know right now you’re thinking ‘If I needed it to build my own blog then what is the cheapest yet best web host provider out there that I could have?’ This is where I will sincerely recommend Hostinger, my blog’s web host. This is the best cheapest web hosting service that you should get.
Is it true Lai? You may ask me.
Without thinking twice the answer is yes!
Do have proof Lai? Of course! I am glad to share it with you.
MY OWN TRUTH ABOUT HOSTINGER
The idea of having my own blog site was toying on my mind two years ago but I am hesitating and brushing it off since that time my youngest daughter is only one year old and I want to give my whole time for her needs, not to mention my eldest kid’s needs too. As a mom, they are my top priorities. The idea still lingers on me until last year that Kendall is already two years old and I already adjusted to my mommy tasks (not completely but surely).
So last December I started researching about setting up a blog. Being a meticulous planner I searched answers for every question that pops on my mind until I came up to the fact that I need to secure my own web host first to make a blog. So I typed in the Google Search Engine the words like ‘best but cheapest web host’, ‘affordable web hosting’. Many suggested articles shown and I just read the articles in the first search page of Google. Several names displayed like Blue Host, GoDaddy, SiteGround, HostGator etc. I researched each of them to my own satisfaction – checking their capabilities, service quality, customer service and of course the price – which I can say is the biggest factor for me to consider since I want a truly affordable web host provider but has an excellent service to give. I typed once more the words ‘top cheapest web host providers’ an article shows the bests in the field then I saw Hostinger among them.
According to Wikipedia again “Hostinger International, Ltd. is an employee-owned web hosting provider and Internet domain registrar. Established in 2004, Hostinger now has over 29 million users, collectively with its subsidiaries in 178 countries. The company uses cloud web hosting technology and provides hosting with MySQL, FTP and PHP. Hostinger is a parent company of 000Webhost, Niagahoster, and Weblink.” You can see that Hostinger has an established reputation in the web hosting industry since they were here for over 15 years.
Comparing Hostinger’s resume to other web hosts I told to myself that the long search is over. I already found what I need. And this is for keeps. All I have to do is to get my credit card and purchased its service online. After three days of reading reviews and feedbacks, I’ve finally settled down and convinced. Hostinger will be my web host provider and no one else. Did I say that I got my domain also from them? I purchased it first before getting a web host because I’m still hoping that I can find other candidates to meet my qualifications. But in the end, I got also my web host from them!
Before I get more emotional, here are Hostinger’s superb qualifications:
What can you say? Maybe you’re actually thinking why Hostinger is not popular like Blue Host or GoDaddy? But did you also think that maybe they’re just promotional hypes and many are missing out in this great opportunity to have a totally great web host provider like Hostinger? I compare the monthly price of each of them but in the end, Hostinger wins the lowest price. And Hostinger has a 30-day trial so if you will change your mind you can back out (but me no!) of course with your money! 100% risk-free!
For its performance, I can say that Hostinger delivers with flying colors. It’s 99.99% uptime. We need speed for our website so Hostinger gives it to us. And if you have questions when building your site their customer service is available 24/7, I’m not joking, I’m saying my experience here. Even in the middle of the night, they will assist you. They are my confidant in times of distress while building my website. I’m not an expert in this field but with Hostinger’s help, I create my own site as if I know better. Though most of my questions are trivial or very simple in the eyes of others I didn’t hesitate to relay it to them because I know they will help me. And they do.
You can get Hostinger’s service by clicking this link of mine. I hope you do, I want you also to experience their great service for their clients. You will never regret it. I promise you that. I will never recommend something that I didn’t like or love personally. This is my truth.
I will be discussing more Hostinger as my blog grows so stay tuned for it guys. Will be sharing to you guys my own journey with Hostinger and their new updates so I can help you choose wisely. If you have any questions you can say it in the comments section or contact me privately. I am glad to answer all of it. Thank you!
5 stars (Excellent!)
Are you thinking if BSA Mansion Condotel is good value for your money? Here’s my review.
This is my first ever article for my Hotel Review Truths Section under the Travelling Category.
I began writing this article since yesterday when we are staying at BSA Mansion Condotel. We family usually have these ritual hotel accommodations every December 31st of the year since me and my hubby would always want to shield our kids from the smell of the firecrackers during New Year’s Eve. Its a dual purpose for us, first for our kids’ health and second for our family bonding time. So let’s start this review now.
BSA Mansion Condotel is not on a modern hotel side. It shows its age through its outside and inside looks. The building’s corridors, reception desks, and elevators show proofs that it is indeed aged through time. But who needs a new building facade if you want to get the lowest price with a good amenities right? MY TRUTH: I am a thrifty and a practical mom. As long as the establishment meets my own set of criteria and budget its a gold one to me. I will share to you my own set of hotel qualifications in my future posts. Anyway, let’s go back to BSA Mansion Condotel. Though it’s surely worn out and has an outdated exterior the room itself is not. Inside the room, you will get the feeling that it’s well taken care of. I will explain it further in the next subparagraph.
We advanced book last November 2018 since we know that during New Year’s Eve all of the hotels will hike their prices if you didn’t book early due to its peak season/holiday period. We booked 1 Room for 4 Pax. When we get there this is where the surprise came – they gave us two bedroom suite that could accommodate 8 heads! Wow! We were only 4 adults and 3 kids to be exact so basically, the room is huge for all of us, we could have 1 bed each! The beds are in doubled decks style. I simply love it since this is my first time to have this kind of bed in hotels because it’s usually just single or twin beds in others. Pillows and bed sheets are neatly placed in each bed with towels. Though the room has four double decks it doesn’t feel cluttered, it still has enough room for movement and space.
The room has a dining table, a refrigerator, two flat screen TV, one comfort room and a small terrace outside. It also has kitchen utilities like an electric stove, a microwave oven, and cooking wares. In our room, it has a lovely black-laced lampshade. The design of our room is sleek and modern as you may say. Now we are going to the downside of this place.
BSA Mansion’s service I can say is not so good. First is everything you do here has an equal charge for their customer. Small things like a sachet of sugar costs 10 pesos and an outside call cost 20 pesos. They didn’t inform us about it from the moment we checked in. We thought those trivial things are free but sadly it’s not. I think the hotel’s management just wants to get more income from their customers because the hotel itself is not popular anymore.
And for the second downfall is about the breakfast arrangement. Since we booked for 4 heads we thought that the inclusive breakfast is for 4 heads also. In Agoda’s booking confirmation it stated the room is for 4 pax and the breakfast is inclusive. It doesn’t specifically express if it’s for 2 or for 4 heads. So we assumed and we booked it based on the posted hotel room offerings of Agoda. I thought BSA could help us with it but no. So we just end up ordering for 1 additional breakfast and we four share the 3 breakfast and other foods that we have. The breakfast is plated and delivered to our room, food tastes good especially the beef tapa that I chose. It comes with egg, rice, and drinks.
Yes it has! And the pool is crystal clear but very cold (grrr…) but all of us dip in it because there are no other people in there but us! Hahah! The pool locates in their penthouse at the rooftop. We enjoy the scenery of Makati’s tall buildings.
Room’s overall cleanliness is acceptable. Bed linens and towels smell good. But one negative note is we saw a dead cockroach on the bathroom floor. We are responsible guests so we call housekeeping dept. to borrow a broom and dustpan and we sweep the floor whenever there’s dirt.
Though BSA Mansion Condotel is an old hotel it can still serve well by giving its clients an excellent service that is expected to every hotel all over the world. It’s not the hotel appearance or the style that matters but most of all the good service that the hotel could give. If the hotel could be more adaptable to their customer’s needs then it means something or everything to the customer’s satisfaction. After all, a good hotel experience translates another customer booking in the future, right?
