What do I have to consider when hosting a landing page, and which hosting service is the best choice?
I need to host a landing page. I need the hosting space, but it is more important that I am able to easily transfer users to Google cloud or Amazon web services.
I agree with Charles...hostgator is good..being a software firm I use their services...and godaddy is good for domain...I would also like to add in here that rackspace is also good when it comes to cloud
I like hostgator for hosting and GoDaddy for domain name registration. You should strongly consider using a domain name. That way, you can easily move to a different host by moving your files to the new host and then changing the name server names at your domain name registrar. Both of these companies have great technical service, which is very important when you have a question.
You may want to consider services like Instapage and Unbounce where they are specialized in hosting landing pages.
I would need more information to answer this question. I know plenty of hosting sites that can host websites and more, but not sure about transferring it to the other two, unless you mean to forward it to look like it is for your current or a client's site that is currently already using google cloud or amazon web services...?
I would suggest ~ http://www.thesba.com/web-services/cloud-managed-services/ ~ I have 20 sites of various types hosted w/New Tek. If you need a C Panel Access or even a website builder they have that included with many of their options. I do a lot with Go Daddy too for my SMB clients that want something easy to use and maintain. Every time you register a domain name w/Go Daddy they give a one page site free. It's easy to transfer stuff to Go Daddy but not as easy to move away later, just saying. The customer support at both New Tek & Go Daddy I would say is good to very good, rarely do they say they don't know or can't help. What ever you are doing, make sure it is mobile optimized!
Not sure what specifically you want to accomplish but from my experience you'll have to re-upload the content to the new hosting company if that's where you want the site to be. Like MicheLe said forwarding is also possible.
I have half a dozen websites and use blacknight.com. I've never had a problem with these guys.
your question is not quite clear. Technology matters. You mentioned landing page, i take it that you have other pages under the pipeline to design/develop or if it is a product. there are features. liaise with your team or source of the landing page you have to give you details like what technology did you/they use ? this will inform our advise whether you're going with shared/vps/dedicated hosting.
The problem with GoDaddy and similar hosting services is they are all shared serviers, and are not managed. So if one site gets hacked, it's easy to get to other sites on the same server,. Plus you're sharing all the resources such as available CPU's. And if there is a problem, who's going to fix the site for you. There also is no automatic backup service. I use a managed dedicated server with InMotion and backup service for all my clients and highly recommend them.
