Here are some things to consider before you chose a Web Host.
1. Quality Matters
: The old saying, “you get what you pay for” is true almost everytime. Web hosting is no exception. Most people new to website hosting opt for the cheapest plan they can find at first. That is, until they actually experience the service!.Making the move to a quality web host is the first step to success for your website.
2. Hosting uptime
: This refers to the amount of time a server is running successfully without going down. This is shown as a percentage of uptime, therefore if a server has an uptime of 95% uptime it means any sites which are also on this server will be running live at this percentage of uptime and subsequently down 5% of the time.
3. Customer support
: If your site goes down, you must make sure the hosting company is able to support you and answer any questions. If you site is down, you are losing money from potential sales, so it is vital that there is 24 hour support to help you with any issues.
Check the bandwidth limit on different hosting packages as some companies might limit this which means if you go over your allowance, you will have to purchase more.
: With personal information being sent between the server and your website such as customer bank card details and personal information such as addresses, it is vital this information is secure. Therefore, the hosting must be secure and use encryption.
