Which is the best hosting service?
Bluehost or 1and1 (now part of IONOS).
Not that these are the only 2 options by any stretch.
But they definitely seem to be the ones that bubble up a lot.
I recently had a 2 week delay in getting a membership site live in wordpress because of issues between memberpress & namecheap (using EasyWP).
It took a lot of digging, and payment to a 3rd party consultancy to figure out the issue.
Bottom line, you get what you pay for and in the namecheap hosting service, the clue is in the name(cheap).
So, for now, for large solid sites, I’m going with either Bluehost or IONOS.
There is huge value in the first follower.
Either BE that person OR if you are the #1, then make sure you nurture that person.
Derek explains things clearly:
nfx are some of the smartest VCs out there (& accomplished in their own right >$10bn in exits of companies they built).
Thinking in terms of network will become relevant as we transition tech platform, which will enable us to become a platform in our own right.
How each individual user gets more value from the platform with each additional user is something for us to figure out.
Also, how each entity (venue, streaming brand, etc), which sits on our platform, gets more value from each additional brand is also worth thinking through once we get into platform developments in the next 12 months.
This 7min vid is worth a watch to stew things at the back of your mind:
Hopefully, the evolution will be to move from pure content acquisition creation –> to content network –> to data network.
Obviously the lights have to stay on in order to get to that point, but this could easily form part of the viable narrative for raising future rounds.
