The right hosting for your website or company
The internet never seems to stop growing. Today the demand for web hosting has never been bigger. Companies, e-commerce stores and blog sites each have different needs, which makes it difficult to choose between different web hosting companies and packages. You want hosting that offers a strong online presence, but is also efficient and affordable at the same time.
At Teamdigital we have already done the hard work for you. We searched for the best hosting companies out there and compared them one by one until we finally found a worthy partner.
Factors to considered when choosing a hosting service:
We chose a hosting service with good uptime and speed. Some hosting services have uptimes of 95% or less. This may not sound so bad, but in one year, 5% of downtime means users have not been able to access your website for more than 440 hours. The speed of your web hosting is also very important. Good speeds not only provide a smooth browsing experience, but will also determine your ranking in search results.
Websites often grow quickly, both in terms of content and number of visitors. It then becomes important that you can easily upgrade your hosting performance to meet the increased needs. A good web hosting provider offers flexible opportunities to upgrade and add more services. On the other hand, you might have aimed a bit too high and you end up not getting as much traffic as you had anticipated. Your hosting service should be able to efficiently downgrade your hosting account. That’s why we chose to work with adaptable packages.
Newer web hosting companies provide very cheap packages. To get as many people as possible to sign up, they will offer many extra features and freebies. However, we advise against going for brand new hosting companies. Instead, choose a service with at least 5 years’ experience that has their own data center and staff. With hosting, a lot of time and resources are needed to test and develop a good and stable service.
CPanel or control panel:
As a website administrator, the control panel is something you will often come into contact with. From the panel dashboard you can manage all your services and perform site maintenance. This was for us one of the most important services to make our decision. To serve you well, we needed a secure control panel that loads quickly and is easy to navigate.
Support is often overlooked when choosing web hosting. If something goes wrong – and that will happen – support agents must be able to quickly diagnose and solve the problem. In many cases it is difficult to find out in advance how responsive the support is. After we finally chose our favorite partner, we quickly noticed that their support is excellent. After all, we are the first in line when something goes wrong. That’s why it should be perfect, so that we can both sleep on both ears at night.
