Choosing a Web Hosting Service, Things to Consider
Getting a good web hosting service is extremely essential! Imagine your website getting down the moment you are at a meeting, showing your magazine based website to your client. Do you think he will be attracted to your luring offer? Certainly not!
There are certain key points to consider to choose the right web hosting service for you!
- Monthly/Annual charges: I think this is the first thing people consider while searching for a good host provider. You do not want to spend a lot and then keep paying charges for add-ons and protection plans throughout the year. You need a package that is cost efficient and reliable. Before choosing a web hosting service, do check put the sign up and renewal plans.
- Packages with good resource package: RAM, I/O, bandwidth and other resources can max out any time of the day. And you may screw up an important moment. It’s important to figure out how much traffic you can possibly get on your website and then skim through all the packages that meet your need.
- Discount coupons: discount always attracts! Choose a host provider that sends out monthly emails to the clients, distributing discount coupons. So that they become your regular customers, recommend it to others and do not regret getting themselves registered with that particular host provider in the first place.
- User friendly hosting control panel: You need to use the control panel quite often for FTP services, database creation, backup, email account creation associated with your website and etc. it’s important that the UI is friendly to incorporate all the needs of the users on time.
- Add on domains on a single hosting package: if you are paying $120 per year on a hosting plan, it’s not very economical to host just a single website at this cost. There are many additional charges for marketing. AdSense etc so you do not want all your budget money to go on in hosting expense. Choose a hosting service which lets you host multiple add-on domains using a single package.
There are a lot of things you learn after your first experience of web hosting. But do your research and ask around to make your first experience unexpectedly better!
