Why Choose D9 Hosting
Posted by Paula Brett on 06 December 2011 10:30 PM
It is not necessary for you to switch your hosting if you already have a package and are happy with the company you are currently using.|
However, we strongly recommend that you do use D9 Hosting. The main reasons for this is that John has personally known the owners for years, and they know his business inside and out. Thus if Students have any hosting related problems he knows that they are in the hands of fellow marketers who understand his products and who can offer the kind of advice that most hosting companies can't.
Additionally, because many students are very new to internet marketing, all John's instructional videos are based around the D9 Hosting website. Many people like to follow along step-by-step and are not ready to `adapt' instructions to different systems at the moment. Also, we're sure you will understand, it's very difficult, probably impossible, for John to offer support for several different hosting company layouts, each is different and have their own unique ways of doing things.
D9 offer free website data transfers from all hosting companies to their own.
In summary, of course, you do not have to host with D9, however the program will run a lot smoother for you if you are still a little new to hosting, databases and marketing.
If you are going to use your current hosting program, please check with your current host that your account has a Wordpress blog install wizard such as Fantastico and also supports SQL databases, as you will be required to install a blog during the course. If your current hosting company does not have a auto install feature for Wordpress, then you will need to install it manually which will require installing a MySQL database. The coaching course videos do not cover this type of technical installation.
