There’s so many web hosting companies from Yahoo, Register.com, GoDaddy.com and many more, how to know which one is for your business?
CEO Andrew H. Te of POWWEB, Inc, a web hosting and design company offers these tips when seeking a web host for your business:
ï Check on how much web space use is offered and what kinds of software it allows.
ï Will there be enough space for your images, ecommerce, graphics or a chat room?
ï Can you expand later without breaking the bank in monthly hosting?
ï Check to see how long the web hosting company has been in business?
ï Find out if there are any complaints against the hosting company at the Better Business Bureau.
ï Ask if you can contact the hosting company customers for testimonials or references.
ï Is the hosting company’s technical support department available 24/7 or weekdays only?
ï Learn what limitations the company has or restrictions and any hidden charges.
ï Ask how you can design your sign and load it on the hosting company server.
ï Inquire about bandwidth allocation-some have limits and charge more for more traffic.
ï Some provide FTP access while others might be complicated.
ï What is speed of access and reliability? If your site is down often, you’re losing business.
ï Look for a hosting company that offers a minimum uptime of “99 percent.”
ï Payment plans – monthly, quarterly and what is it going to cost your small business?
