One of the most important things to consider when getting a new website is choosing the best company to host it for you.

Many people don’t realise the importance of choosing a good hosting company and the issues that can occur if you get it wrong. There are many factors to consider as a poor hosting service could lead to a large amount of website downtime and a slow-running website, leading to loss of customers and conversions.

In case you didn’t already know, a web hosting service provider is a business that provides the technologies and services needed for the website or webpage to be viewed in the Internet. Websites are hosted, or stored, on special computers called servers. So what do you need to consider when choosing a provider?

Reliable Support Team

You will need to make sure you choose a company with a reliable support team. You need someone who is going to respond to your support issues efficiently and as quickly as possible helping you to resolve your issues and reduce the risk of losing potential customers.

Security & Backups

Website security is crucial, especially now with the new GDPR regulations in place. You need to make sure that you choose a hosting company who can offer you a secure platform to host your website. It’s also best to choose a company who can provide regular backups of your website should your website be damaged beyond repair; they will be able to simply restore the latest backup.

Email Options

Company email addresses containing your domain name work much better for you, your business and your clients. So, choose a company who can offer an email service and again provide support and hosting along with this.
