Things To Look Out For When Choosing A Hosting Company
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

In writing about what to look for when deciding on a webhosting company, I want to have a new person just going into internet business in mind.

First of all, what is web hosting? After understanding what web hosting means we can now move on to other considerations.

Web hosting or website hosting is hosting or housing website files or pages on a web host server. So we can say that a web hosting service is an Internet hosting service that allows people to make the contents of their websites accessible to the whole world via the internet. Therefore, web hosts are companies that provide such service.

There is no way you will not come in contact with web hosting and webhosting companies in your journey in internet marketing or internet business. That is why it is very important that you understand the concepts very well before going into it so that you can avoid the mistakes that I made in the past. Also people will be telling you about things like cheap web hosting, free web hosting and so on; but be focused on getting a good service first. Sometimes the cheapest ones may frustrate you and you will abandon your money with them.

This morning I just moved one of my clients’ account from one of the cheapest web hosting companies I have been using because of incessant complaints from that client which I have discovered to be true. Infact that my client is a mortgage bank; you can imagine the embarrassment and loss of face.

So I can tell that being cheap may not be your best choice as a starter, I have learnt it in a bitter way as I have lost many clients due to that hosting company’s bad service.

I am also assuming that you have chosen your domain name very well as this is equally very important, you should know that domain name once registered cannot be changed again, it has to be with you for the next one year. You either continue to use it or drop it and choose another one. That is money lost and in this business every cent matters.

Cost: The cost of webhosting ranges from $1.00 per month to as much as you are willing to pay, but as a starter I should advise you to start with the relatively cheap ones as you do not need the sophistication of the expensive webhosting companies for now.

Reliability and Uptime

Your web hosting company should provide you with a secure and reliable hosting environment. It should be 24/7 and 99.99% up time or more.

Real People Chat

Please always make sure that any hosting company you are going to do business with MUST as a matter of compulsion have a chat service where you can chat with real people and not those always showing that they are offline. If you neglect this you will have problem as the frustration of waiting endlessly when you have a problem to be sorted can be very frustrating.

4/7 Phone & Email Support Service

Phone support and email support are very essential as you need them as a beginner. Failure to make sure that these support facilities are working fine will spell doom for you because you must have paid your money and you will then be at their mercy.

Money Back Guarantee

Money back guaranty is good but it should not be your first consideration. Get a good service first, sometimes the procedure and frustration of getting back your money may not worth it. Therefore, open your eyes widely, and make the right choice at the first time, that confidence will boost your online business potential.
