Choosing the right web hosting provider for better SEO performance

Since the common SEO practices relate to website coding (e.g. meta description tag, title tags, H1 tags, H2 tags, etc.), one may ask: "what does hosting have to do with SEO?" In fact, Google recently has announced that Page Speed is a factor in its search ranking algorithms. So the faster your website loads, the better it ranks on Google. With that being said, it makes sense for a website owner to choose a more reliable web hosting service provider for SEO purposes.

In addition, a handful of web hosting providers offer a function called "optimize website". Basically, this service automatically compresses all the files before the files are sent to the viewers. If this service is available in your web hosting plan, there will be a button called "optimize website" in your cPanel. Doteasy's Ultra and Unlimited Hosting plan offer this service. It's a good idea to ask the tech support of the web hosting service provider before subscribing their services.
