Finding the right hosting provider

Since we are working in website and web application design and development, we deal with different situations and challenges. However, one challenge we do not want to face is issues with hosting provider. What would you do if your website or the awesome web application is down for most of the time? Does it really make sense?

Here is what you can do:

Before you buy any hosting solution, check out what people are saying about them. You can do a Google search like “Hosting provider name + review”. You may also try searching for the hosting provider’s name in networks like Twitter or ask someone at FaceBook. You may also try different websites that offer honest reviews of providers to find a reliable website host or ask at different webmaster’s forums that discuss hosting issues and different deals. But what makes a web host reliable? There are different perimeters like uptime, years in business, server specifications according to your need, ssl access, customer support, community, knowledge base etc.

Another very important issue one must consider is when to go for shared hosting and when to go for a VPS hosting provider! If you are running a personal blog or website or starting up, you may consider shared hosting. It is much cheaper compared to VPS hosting. However, if you really concerned about speed and performance of your website along with security, you should think about going for VPS hosting. However, for a VPS hosting, you must have enough technical knowledge or a team to take care of the server.

The biggest problem you may face with a web hosting solution provider is proper customer support. On any given time, you may need immediate support. If the hosting provider, does not have enough professional resources, you will be in great problem. And you will come across many web hosting providers with almost no support staff.

To add, there are many companies who have taken a reseller account and offer web hosting solutions to new webmasters. Their deals can never be close to what the original company is offering. And you will often see that they offer poor customer service.

Also, good web hosting companies develop a community around their service. The community members help each other to solve a lot of regular issues. Does your web hosting solution provider have anything like that?

Tips, if you are planning to get business via organic traffic (SEO), make sure that you have good neighbourhood (other websites in the same space) in the shared hosting space. Or it may hamper your ranking over time.
