With the numerous hosting providers in the market today, finding a good one may prove difficult. You become spoilt for choice and just don’t know who to sign up with. So what do you do? Look out for the following characteristics to determine the reputable ones from the ones with poor quality services.
Unusual hosting packages
Just because they say you can register your domain name free of charge and have a large bandwidth does not mean these hosting providers are good. You should especially beware of those offering 100% uptime. There is no way uptime can be 100% so this in itself is a huge red flag. Their dishonesty just makes you wonder what else they are dishonest about. Cross check to look into what all the services hosts offer, so you do not end up paying for something that’s a hoax.
A good web host will provide you exactly what they say they will. They are usually transparent about their services and will even break everything for you in case you want them to. That way, you will know what you are paying for and for how long.
Get a host with domain name registration as part of their package
A host who can register your domain for you will ease your work when launching your site. It is usually better to have one person or company handle everything so that you can easily go back to them in case something goes wrong or needs fixing. It reduces the hassle of reaching out to many people who did different tasks on your site.
Plus a host who can register your domain and provide other website services shows how great their talents are. They give their clients a sense of relief to know that they are talented enough to cater to all their website needs. Some will even provide various domain name examples if you do not find your ideal domain name on their availability checker.
Read reviews and testimonials to figure out the reputation of your web hosting service provider
There’s no better way to find out the reputation of a person than from people in his life or from his past. Hosting providers with services such as cloud hosting require their clients to provide private details which they store on a server online. This presents the opportunity for hackers to access your private information and files. A good host will take sufficient security measures to maintain the privacy of their clients’ details.
Reviews and client testimonials are filled with information on how good a host is and the quality of their services. Put in some time to look at these reviews before parting with your money, especially if you have a few hosts in mind. An excellent and reputable hosting service provider will have good reviews and testimonials.
