Sure, you can put a “free blog” up on other sites, but what guarantees do you have with a free service?
Free hosting services have strict terms of service and can take down your stuff in the blink of an eye, with no warnings, no questions and no cares.
If you’re running a personal blog about your cat, it really isn’t a big deal in the grand scheme of things. But what happens if you have a few ads on your site and you count on the couple hundred dollars a month your site is making you? That money is gone in the blink of an eye.
What if you’re running a blog site for your business and you have newsletter subscribers, and regular visitors? What are they going to think when they come up with “no longer available”? First thing I say to myself when seeing something like that is, “they must have gone out of business”.
Don’t let that happen to you and your business. TCM Hosting services almost never has down time, and we have yet to remove a blog site or a client web site for any other reason than a legitimate “gone out of business” reason.

We see it far too often — in experienced web hosting companies setting you up with a “dot com”, but “splitting” your site — one where a person has to type in a www.yourname.com and another where they “short-form it” by typing yourname.com
If your business is located in an office suite or a plaza – do you just give your address out as 100 Busy Street and let the customer “guess” what unit you’re located in? Probably not.
TCM Web Hosting makes sure your customers find you — either with a www or without a www.
It’s a simple thing a lot of hosting companies over look — after all, “everyone knows to type www. – right?”. Well, they couldn’t be more wrong. Make the switch to TCM Web Hosting — we pay attention to the little details. It’s how we make our living and can pass along expert advice.
We use and recommend GoDaddy for your domain name needs.
Great prices on all their services including ‘private’ domain names.
Grab a domain name and be sure to set the “name servers” to point to us if you’re going to host your web site or blog with us!
If you’re switching your web site hosting over to tcm web media to take advantage of our low hosting rates and high quality WordPress hosting option, you’ll need to configure your web site ‘domain name’ to point to our web servers instead of where they currently point to.
The section you need to change on your domain name manager is called “name severs“.
The name servers for our web hosting is ns1.tcmd.com and ns2.tcmd.com
Click the image to the right to have a closer look at what you’d change things to if you have a domain name registered with “godaddy.com“.
Although WordPress is a pretty user-friendly system, you may feel more comfortable with a bit of training for your and your staff members.
We’ll show you how to login to your administration section, upload photos, compose new updates and get the automated email backups running. We’ll show you how to find new themes for your web site, how to install different plug-in options (like the mobile “touch” theme which gives mobile users a very friendly format to view your site in).
We’re available at very low rates and will come to your location (within reason from where our staff currently reside), or can arrange for phone coaching via Skype or regular phone.
