How to pick best web hosting provider

If you are planning to get into the online market, then deciding your web hosting provider might feel a difficult task. There are many providers out there, but it seems difficult to pick the best one among them. So, in this article, I have put up some points that will help you to make the best choice.

Before moving forward, I will like to suggest that before you start the search for the best hosting in India, first list down your requirements. Have a list of points containing your wants and don’t from the web hosting provider, this will help you select and eliminate companies with ease. Like you can straight away unselect the company that doesn’t suit your requirements.

Points to check while picking up the best web hosting provider –

Support:

For any web hosting company it is always a good option to provide round the clock support. Although it is considered as a traditional way, still contains a lot of advantages. Your website works 24/7 and so you do need support that works along with a site. Also, look if you get the expert support like a professional and certified technical team. You can expect high monitoring and a clear vision to solve problems like server failure.

Reviews and Testimonials:

The best way to find the best and unlimited hosting provider is to go through their reviews. Check different review sites and find out what people say about them. You can also go through testimonials from their customers on different social media platforms.

Reliability:

Select the host that provides at least 99.9% uptime, anything above it would be great. Uptime decides the percentage of time that your website remains visible to the audience on the internet, so it has to be as maximum as possible. Some web hosting providers claims of providing 100% uptime, be aware of them and check it on your own.

Server location:

I suggest selecting a server location that is near to your website. It is better to find out the physical server location options before hosting your site. In case you are from India, then there’s no point in getting a server from US, you can select the location India only.

Bandwidth:

The bandwidth decides how much data you can feed onto your website. It is a data transfer method, which means the amount of data that gets downloaded from your site to its visitors. Thus, the best option will be to select unlimited bandwidth, so that the site wouldn’t go down while the visitors browse it.

Flexibility:

As your website starts growing and its visitors increase you will need to mold it as per needs. There may occur a need for installing any particular app like WordPress, Joomla, etc. to make the website more versatile. Thus, some hosting providers offer a one-click installer that enables you to install these applications within clicks. In such a case, make sure you have access to do so. Also, when a website gets mature you may face the need for more resources, so your hosting package must be flexible enough to get more or fewer resources as required.

Control Panel:

Always go for the provider that provides user-friendly control panels. This will help you to manage the work and other aspects easily of your website from any location.

SSD Storage:

Every website must perform speedily. The days of traditional drives have gone. So, make sure you get a pure SSD storage that accelerates your website to provide a better user experience. SSD storage ensures that the webpage requested by visitors get delivered quickly, before him switching to another option.

SSL Certificate:

SSL certificate is a trust factor of your website. It makes sure that data on the site is secured and visitors can browse the site without any worry. SSL certificate also helps in boosting up the website ranking on search engine results like Google, Yahoo, Bing, etc.

Protection From Virus:

Websites stored on the same server are prone to get hacked easily. Once the hacker gets access to your website data then it becomes difficult to get out of it. If your website contains some personal information like credit or debit card details, names, addresses of your clients/customers then make sure the site has high-end security. Make sure that all the servers at the hosting company get scanned on a daily basis so that no malware remains undetected.

Backups:

Any natural or unnatural miss happenings can damage your site’s data. Recovering the lost data is very difficult and the possibility is you can recover the data in only bits and pieces. So, to avoid any such situation, ask for strong backup support from your web hosting provider.

So, if you are confused about which hosting to pick just go through these points and get your check list done.

Conclusion –

While selecting a web hosting provider, the support, the uptime, and the storage space play an important role. Always remember a 24/7/365 days technical support is a must for every online business.
