6 Key Factors to Consider When Choosing the Best WebHosting Provider

1. Uptime 

There is nothing more frustrating on the internet than clicking on a link and the target site not opening.

This factor, also called uptime, can be measured using a number. The closer to 100%, the better the service availability guarantees. When choosing your website hosting provider, keep an eye on this, and prioritize the options that offer uptime above 99%.

2. Storage

If you need a lot of space, make sure that the website hosting company offers the amount you need to keep from running out of memory. Or, if you need little, opt for cheaper plans and save money that you would pay for unnecessary space.

3. Traffic

Some website hosting services have a monthly traffic limit. In practice, this means that after a specific amount of access, the server will charge an additional fee for “extra visitors” or will stop displaying your website on the web.

4. Speed

Google will always prioritize the pages that load faster, always aiming to offer the best experience for its users.

So, check if the website hosting service you are hiring offers a good loading speed.

5. Data security

You have to make sure that the chosen provider is able to completely protect its customers, offering an information redundancy system and constant backups.

6. Customer support

Customer support is a key factor for many users and the provider’s availability to help you can be the difference between a crisis resolved quickly or a website being offline for several hours. 

Check out how the support of the service you are considering hiring works and see which channels the company offers for you to contact and ask for help.
