How to choose a web hosting provider?
There are several things to be kept in mind while choosing a web hosting provider for your website to make sure that you don’t run into problems with the maintenance and security of your website.
What are the web hosting providers’ contracts?
Some web hosting providers allow you to pay for the services on the run which enables you to quit the plan any time you want to without any loss. But there are some web hosting providers that lock you into a contract at an initial price which increases at the time of renewal of the agreement.
Does the web hosting provider offer technical support?
Since a common server is shared with other websites, shared hosting is low cost, the server’s maintenance costs are distributed amongst its users. The users can pay more to upgrade hosting services to allow more traffic handling and access to greater resources.
Shared hosting does not require much technical skills or in-depth knowledge of servers as they usually come with a control panel to facilitate the website management and installing updates and patches is carried out by the host providers.
Is security included in the hosting plan?
Securing your website on the internet is a priority. It is important to select a hosting provider that provides a powerful firewall, has the latest versions of the antivirus software and allows constant monitoring of the stats, malware detection and removal, and automatic installation of updates of patches.
A firewall helps protect your website by inspecting and filtering traffic. It helps defend your website from common cyber attacks like cross-site request forgery, cross-site scripting, file inclusion, and SQL injection.
A good antivirus software prevents, searches for, detects and removes viruses and other malicious contents for proper function of your website. Both, firewall and antivirus ensures security of your website.
While selecting a hosting provider, always choose the company which offers daily secure backups and that will help you to restore the backed up data to your website from the backup files if the website files get corrupted or lost.
Files on servers can get corrupted and your hosting provider does not includes backups in the plans then in case of file corruption you will lose all of that data.
What is uptime rating?
Website uptime is defined as the time that a website is available to users in a given time period. It is represented as a ratio of the time available divided by the total time, this ratio is calculated on monthly or yearly increments. In the industry 99.999% uptime is considered as high availability.
The uptime rating score of web hosting providers tells how reliable the server is, a minimum of 99.5% uptime rating is recommended. The performance of your website directly affects the experience of users who visit your website. Hence, uptime is a crucial factor while choosing a web hosting provider.
Does the web hosting provider allow plan upgradation?
You might want to upgrade your plan in case of increased traffic or if you need more services. If the hosting provider is flexible with its plans, it allows you to upgrade your plans easily.
