Ingredients for Rock Solid Website Hosting
7 Key Ingredients for Rock Solid Website Hosting
Every website needs a great web host, however when you are looking
online for a host you may be overwhelmed with the wide variety available
ranging from absolutely free to relatively expensive.
How do you know what you need and what is the best choice? The
answer to this depends on your business and whether you will have
a lot of business or none at all, however you always want to have
more space than you think you will need as well as the following
options for a great web host.
Ingredient #1 24/7 Support
When choosing a web hosting company you definitely want to make
sure that they have 24/7 support. The reason for this is if you
have a problem with your website, you need to be able to talk to
someone and have them fix it immediately.
As long as the host offers this type of support it should not be
a problem. If they don’t, you might wait several days with
your website down and not be able to contact anyone. Think of the
customers you will be missing and all of the lost sales you'll suffer.
Ingredient #2 Large Bandwidth
You want to make sure your web host offers a generous amount of
bandwidth in order to support your website and ensure it loads as
quickly as possible. The more bandwidth means the more information
that is carried and the quicker your page opens. So, make sure you
have a web host with plenty of bandwidth to support your site.
Ingredient #3 Excessive Storage Space
Regardless of whether you need it now or not you want a web host
that offers plenty of storage space in case you do need it. Give
yourself some growing room.
Ingredient #4 E-mail
When you have a web host as well as URL you will also want to
have your own e-mail that ties into your company name. Find a web
host that offers this as well. Most do, but some might trick you
with fine print so be careful.
Ingredient #5 Additional Domains
You may only have one domain name today, but the future holds
all kinds of possibilities. Be sure you can add additional domain
names if you need to.
Ingredient #6 Domain Parking
If you have a domain name, but do not have your own name server
then you will certainly want a web host that will allow you to store
or “park” your domain name on their server for your
domain to remain valid for an extended period of time.
Ingredient #7 Tools to Manage your Site
While you have found a web host that meets all of your needs,
be sure you also have a tool box that will help you manage your
site easily and whenever you want. This is really important for
you to be able to do, especially if you need to change something
like prices, or other important information.
