In the last few weeks you may have noticed my website running a little faster. You also may have noticed that my new faster web hosting is cheaper than my old host. Wait, no, you wouldn’t know that.

That’s why I’m telling you now!

This website has been moving slowly for months now, and I’ve been wanting to do something about it but my new website Reward Boost is taking up so much of my time (and will be launching a new exciting feature soon) that I hardly have time to write blog posts, much less optimize my site performance.

While I wasn’t even thinking about a new web host, luckily I saw on my twitter feed that one of my personal finance blogging friends Andrea has started her own web hosting service. I asked her for some information and here’s what she told me:

  • My old hosting was sharing servers with thousands of other websites. She currently has way less than thousands of clients, so my website has all the resources it needs. That means it’s going to be faster.
  • I get personalized service from someone I can trust. I can just call or IM Andrea and she will fix it. I’ve already had her address a few things and it’s the best customer service I’ve had!
  • She’s actually running her business with a server from my previous host, so I know the hardware is is going to be reliable.
  • Best of all, I get all of these benefits at a lower price than my previous host!

I’m now an engaged man, which means I need to spend my free time with my fiancee and planning our wedding, while I need to save as much money as possible so I can pay for it. My new web hosting with Nuts and Bolts Web Hosting makes running this website as hassle free as possible while also lowering my expenses.

I know many of my readers have their own websites. If you are paying more then $5 a month for your hosting and aren’t getting incredible personalized customer service, I definitely suggest you check out Andrea’s hosting plans.

I’m saving about $50 a year using her plans, which might pay for a couple chairs at my wedding. It’s not much, but every little bit helps!
