8 Steps To Choosing The Right Web Host

By rllunzmann

This is an important decision and you don’t want to charge in blindly. You want to choose the web host that is going to provide your needs as they stand now as well as where they lead to in the future. Here we go: 

1. Understand the differing types of hosts: shared, collocated, unmanaged dedicated, and managed dedicated. 

2. Go for stability, not just size. Research how long the hosting business has been in operation. See if they have recently changed ownership, and if they show positive cash flow. 

3. The possession of fully redundant data centers. If you are considering doing business with a smaller hosting vendor, ensure that they have adequate power and connectivity capabilities. Inquire as to the number of lines the facility has. Do they possess an on-site generator? Does the generator receive regular checks and maintenance? What is the average utilization of the connections available? 

4. How skilled is their staff? When you need customer service of a technical nature, you need it immediately, right? Find out the availability of their systems administrators. 

5. Other customer’s reviews of the hosting services. Same as any business, the hosting vendor should be able to provide good references. 

6. Is the potential host flexible? In the future, your needs may change. Can you upgrade services should the need arise? 

7. Make sure that the host does not have blackholed IPs. The host that you want to do business with would not be one that promotes illegal sites, spammers, or other security issues. You are considering associating your business with this host. Think about it. 

8. Begin with and maintain a clear and written understanding of all services and all charges for them. 

If you do your research before beginning business, you will find a better avenue to the successful hosting, and thereby promotion, of your online business. Take your time in making this important decision.
