Choosing web hosting provider, points to consider when choosing your web hosting Video 1

Choosing the right Web Hosting matters

How you choose your web hosting provider, matters a lot whether you’re putting up a personal website or a commercial one.

You should choose your web hosting provider wisely. The reason is that you will most definitely want your website to be seen by the largest number of people. To do that it is essential to take a little time to go over certain basics but very important factors that will ensure more visibility for your site.

Points to consider when choosing your web hosting

Even after you zone in on a particular provider, you still need to choose the hosting package that will suit you. Do not be afraid to make a lot of questions. Every web hosting site offers many different types of packages to choose from. The most popular types are the ‘Unlimited Bandwidth’ package and FREE Marketing Tools included,

The following points should make your task of choosing a web hosting simpler for you.

Point number one:

The most basic thing for a website to be found on the internet depends on whether the server where the files are stored, is online. Meaning, up and running at any given time. This is called Server Uptime. You will find that most of the web hosting providers will claim a 99.99% server uptime. Some even claimed 100%.

My recommendation is to go for the larger more established hosting companies who have built a trusted reputation. Most good hosting companies have multiple server data and power backups. A few also promised 100% and they do that by guaranteeing refund of fees in the eventuality that any downtime might happen.

Point number two:

Customer Support. They should provide customers with 24/7 phone and internet support. They should have a good collection of tutorials and FAQs readily on their site in case you might need help. Make no mistake, you will contact your hosting support more often than you think, especially if you are serious about your website.

Point number three:

Pricing and included features.

The range of pricing and features included in web hosting packages are pretty wide. You will want a fair balance of features and quality that will suit your needs. As with any other product, cheap usually gets less quality. On the other hand, some pricing can be exorbitant without any special value.

The prices of hosting packages are usually dependent on the set of features included. These include data storage and bandwidth limits, number of allowed addon domains and subdomains, number of email and FTP accounts hosted, shared or virtual or dedicated server plans, programming languages and databases, site tools, shopping cart, etc, and the list goes on.

One can be easily confused with these numerous choices more so if you are not familiar with them. Don’t worry, we will cover the essential ones in the next videos.

We will talk more on pricing and features on our Video number two.

See you there.

Thank you for your visit.
