Choosing right web hosting provider is as much important as having a blog/site for online business. Best hosting can increase returning traffic, as it`s hosting which is main reason behind site speed.
Who would like to be on a slow site? Do you?
Below are listed 5 steps to help you choose best web hosting.
#1 Reliability is the first thing to check
Unfortunately many people when they decide to start a blog, they look for hosting who provides more disk space, bandwidth etc… actually you need to check it`s reliability, percentage of your site up is very important.
When you have lot`s of disk space, bandwidth, domains…lots more useless stuff and your blog is down maximum what will you do?
Decide based on it`s uptime and server capability.
#2 Do some research
Use Google, Bing or anyother search engine you like and search for reviews about the web hosting you selected. Don`t get out to buy just reading one review, research here mean real research! Hope you got it.
#3 Ask their current customers
Best way to get a review about any business asking their current customers. Even, asking old customers will not work out. get some handful of customers and contact them directly, or you can participate in web hosting forums to get current customers. I knew it takes time but this is one time work.
#4 Test their customer support by yourself
Visit their site and contact their customer support through live chat and see how they interact with you. If you`re technical enough to ask them then pose them few technical questions, else ask them basic questions.
#5 Don`t go for cheap hosting
You may be attracted by many hosting companies with low price, high bandwidth and diskspace. Don`t every go for them, as they can`t guarantee to be up for max time as they are overselling it.
Which is the Best Hosting Company?
The best hosting company, as am writing now is Host Gator, reason is simple I`m using it and I found it very very useful.
