Choose the right service provider - speed matters.
Has The Infrastructure
Running a hosting company means more than just having a bunch of servers. You need to have the support to ensure that they are properly maintained and enough of them to handle all the traffic going through all the sites you host.
Amazon Hosting had a record number of 12.9 million requests in one second in 2017. That gives you an idea of how much traffic you could be looking at. Want to learn more fun facts about Amazon’s hosting service? Hosting Tribunal has put together the infographic on that very subject below.
Above all else, you need to find out how reliable the service you are considering is. What is its downtime like? Remember that when it goes down, so does your site. It’s important to find a company that has little to no downtime.
You need to find a company that allows you some options when it comes to packages. You don’t want to be caught in a situation where you have to pay for the bandwidth that you will never use. By the same token, you need to be able to upgrade easily if your site becomes too big for your current plan.
You need to know exactly what you are going to be getting with each different package and what you are paying for exactly. That way you can choose the best-suited package.
What it boils down to is that you should do your homework properly before making your final decision. Choose your hosting company as carefully as you would a business partner. The wrong choice could make or break your business.
