A car is as only good as the engine under its hood. The same can be said about a website and the hosting services behind it. The hosting platform is responsible to keep your website live and responsive to help accelerate your business. Like any smart shopper, it’s important to ask “What do I need?” and “For how much?” when considering your web hosting options.
What do I need from my hosting service?
This question is more easily answered when you have considered other questions first.
1. Do you plan to sell online, display a gallery, or have a blog? If so, your hosting provider should include multiple MySQL databases, which make e-commerce, gallery and blog solutions possible and easy to create.
2. Will you need your own domain email? At Clear Path, we always advise business owners to use their own domain emails. Consider it a way to advertise your business online every time you send an email.
3. Would you like to advertise your business online? You may want to get a jump start on advertising with sites like Google, Facebook, and Yahoo. Will your Hosting provider provide Advertising credits to get you started?
4. Who will own your domain? No one wants to discover a nasty surprise; the domain you paid for doesn’t even belong to you! Be sure that you are the sole owner when you register a domain with a Hosting provider.
We believe these are the basic essentials for any company making its mark online, regardless of size or market, and meeting all of these needs with a Hosting provider at a fair and low price is not too much to ask for.
