A Tale of Two Parties – You and Your Hosting Provider


Like every business, a happy relationship between the customer and the provider matters in the web hosting sector. Since your website’s functionality depends a lot on the hosting, you don’t want to take any risks. You mustn’t forget the fact that even if you are the client, your hosting provider has terms and conditions that you need to adhere to. images

The following information will help you:

You Get What You Pay For

A cheap price may seem enticing, but is not always that great. Cheap plans may work well for small websites but if yours is a website with many pages, chances are that the plan will not do a good job. Also, if you want to have other domains to be hosted on the same accocunt, a cheap plan will not be effective.

Uptime Matters

The standard uptime provided in the hosting industry is 99.9%. It indicates that the downtime should be around 8 hours over the course of a year. If you encounter breaks that last for an hour or so, move on to another hosting provider.

Shared Web Hosting? Sure! Just Know Who You Are Sharing With

If you have chosen shared web hosting, your site will have to share space with countless other sites. Do your homework and find out what these sites are so that you can be prepared for any kind of unforeseen damage. For instance, if there is a website that is sharing the same server with yours and sending spam emails, it will increase the traffic load on the server and can lead to downtime for your website.

Ask For Outstanding Support

Get in touch with the customer service team of your web hosting provider and ask whether they provide 24/7 service. Ask if your website encounters an outage, whether they would be able to provide immediate service. It’s best if you can get this conversation in writing. That way, you can have a record which you can use in future if they don’t deliver what they had promised.
The hosting sector is a complex, convoluted one. Do you research well before selecting a provider because shady providers are not unheard of.
