Can I Move the Hosting and Email of My Orthodontics Website?

Over the last several months a number of orthodontists and dentists have contacting us in an effort to change of their hosting and email. Some companies are charging as much as $500 to $750 to host a website and email. Unfortunately, orthodontists and dentists may not realize they are overpaying by about $450 a month. They could be spending money more wisely by putting it towards SEO and content for a website instead of simple hosting.

Before assuming you can DIY your website hosting it is important to note that DNS name servers and records must be taken over and placed on your new host. You will also need to change the MX for email. Fortunately, most hosting companies such as Bluehost, Dreamhost and HostGator will be more than happy to walk you through the entire process.

If you do not have the time and you want an expert to do this for you, please feel free to reach out to us at jesse@wojdylosocialmedia.com. We will be more than happy to help you set up your own VPS (virtual private server) that will allow you to pay around $20 to $30 a month rather than paying $500. Also note, a large number of orthodontics and dental practices have Google Apps set up for their email. With this being the case, there is no reason to feel as if you are married to your host for email. This is a simply fix within the MX.

Instead of spending hundreds of dollars on hosting, it is advisable to save this money with your own host and spend these hard earned dollars ranking higher on the front page of Google search. If your orthodontics or dental SEO company is not providing you with the services you desire do not hesitate to reach out to us today. We have helped a number of business professionals reach the top of page one for not only the organic search but the maps search as well.
