Hosting is one of the most important things that you will need for your blog or website. Hosting ensures that whenever someone in the whole wide world tries to access your site from anywhere on the entire planet its available to him or her. Its very important that your site remains available since you cannot afford your site to be down when someone who is your potential customer approaches the site.
There are many things that you should consider before hooking on to a web hosting company and the things that I mentioned fall under the uptime. The time that your site remains available.
The best hosting companies promise and deliver on a 99.9% uptime. What this means as in a case of my friend is that in 3 years your website may not be available only for 2 minutes. Now that’s something that adds to the credibility of the hosting company. Lot of sites a nd bloggers for the monetary gain can profess about the benefits of a particular host but in so many words they may also be trying the in adequacies of the host.
The best thing that you can do to yourselves is in purchasing hosting form someone who himself uses it.
This is the next thing that I look on in a host. I will not buy hosting from anyone if the company belongs to the cadre of businesses that do not give a damn about the condition of the websites hosted on them.
In my initial days as a blogger I had some newbie starting troubles with c panel and other alien things but the 24*7*365 chat, phone and email support helped me come over the crisis.
Trust me 90% of the time you do not need them but at times when you do need them and you find a clueless monkey on the other side of the phone then you would have given anything, sold, looted anyone to solve the problem you are facing.
Its much better to do the needful -research.
Money back guarantee:
Ok so I have heard of you from so many bloggers who were kind enough to get three exclusive coupons for me and advised on going long term to save the money, which I did but what if somehow the chemistry doesn’t work? Do you promise to give me my money?
This part of the game can be really tricky as you have never bothered to read the terms and conditions of the user agreement before agreeing.
With particular loops and twists you may ultimately find that the money back guarantee that you were promised earlier is actually void since they give money back only on credit card purchases and you used Paypal.
As much as horrible it sounds that often is the truth.
I wouldn’t like my readers waiting forever to just see the site load up but my host ensures that it saps every tiny bit of the patience left in them before showing them your site.
Your site is too slow thanks to your host.
Your bounce rates are higher not because you do not write great content but because you did not spend enough money on choosing an option that gives customer satisfaction when it comes to loading your site.
Read reviews and question Google on the speed of the servers before making any decision.
