What to Look for When Choosing a Website Hosting Company

Uncategorized 23.7.2012 Comments Off on What to Look for When Choosing a Website Hosting Company

Here are a few things that I look for when I’m choosing a website hosting company. Affordability, Services and Reputation – these are all very important aspects when it comes to deciding which hosting company to use.

Affordability:

how much is the website hosting package going to cost? Trust me when I say that “you get what you pay for” – this is apparent when choosing hosting. You don’t want to spend too much, but you might also spend too little. If you spend too little you may not have access to services such as FTP, php, mysql etc… However, by spending a larger amount you are bound to have accesses to these features.

Services:

As I mentioned before, website hosting companies often offer such features as FTP, php, mysql. These are only a few features that can be offered by a website hosting company, however there are dozens more. You will have to check the list of included features before you purchase your hosting package. For instance: It is much better to make sure you have access to mysql, when you don’t need it. Then need it, but don’t have. “It’s better to be safe than sorry” – I love these proverbs.

Reputation:

is everything when it comes to website hosting, you’ll almost certainly find that the largest hosting companies have the best reputation. This is due to them building up their reputation over time by offering great services such as costumer support. I highly recommend that you use a well known company over a less known hosting company. For two reasons, a lesser known company maybe slightly untrustworthy and offer inferior products/services . Whereas, a larger company has their reputation to worry about and will do everything in their power to insure that you are kept happy.

To summarize, when looking for a website hosting company it is important that you keep an eye out for these three aspects. Then again, this is only what I look for, you may have different guidelines to follow. Though, I bet we can both agree that when choosing a website hosting company, you should accept nothing but the best.
