How to pick the Right Hosting For Your Website

Published

on

In a day and age when everything is digital and all the information is just a few clicks away, websites play a vital role in connecting people and establishing businesses. Now websites are hosted virtually by a third party, known as hosting providers for websites, blogs and apps through different servers. A few of website hosting providers are:

*Bluehost

*Siteground

*Dreamhost

*Hostinger

*Hostgator

Like any definition, web hosting can be easily understood with an illustration, for example choosing a good reliable web hosting provider is like establishing a good foundation before building a house. Get to know important sources of information on web hosting, for instance Hosting Foundry’s reviews are in-depth that will guide you effectively.

Here are some few points to guide you in choosing a host for your website.

1.     Knowing your Needs

Firstly before jumping into picking your service provider, one should carefully examine your needs (a picture of your website requirements, the cost and time factors, etc). Why is it necessary you might wonder? Generally, website providers can be classified into four categories.

a.     Shared Hosting: If you are new into handling a website and managing it yourself then as a hobby, shared hosting can be a good platform for you. With shared hosting, you share your server resources with other websites thus costing you less but unable to handle if the traffic increases.

b.     Virtual Private Hosting (VPS): Under this hosting, you will be able to have your own server resources. Thus the cost is more and it can handle more traffic.

c.     Cloud Hosting: Here depending upon the traffic, the server will merge itself with other servers making it more efficient and productive.

d.     Dedicated Hosting: Dedicated server hosting is when you have an entire physical server that’s dedicated to your website. It is basically a self-owned server where you don’t need to share the resources and you have control over the traffic needs.

As you gain more knowledge and your website traffic increase you can opt to upgrade from one type of hosting to another.

2.     Know the Cost

While there are some free hosting providers but a major drawback is they do not hold any responsibility if your website or blog gets crashed or deleted. So it is advisable to opt for a budget program if you are new but still serious. Almost all the subscription plans are the same and the costs are also the same depending upon the extra features you might want. The cost will increase if you want to add on a domain name, payment features, upgrades, etc. A piece of general advice is to note the extra features cost, renewal price, and the signup discounts and refund policy.

3.     Know the Features

You need a user-friendly control panel to communicate between the systems. The most popular type of control panel and one of the easiest to use is cPanel, which is great for Linux based servers. If you use a Windows server, look for the Plesk control panel. Both these control panels provide a single dashboard interface with easy to navigate, well-categorized features that let you change settings and manage updates and software installation in just a few clicks. Other features you need to look for are file manager, site stats, FTP /sFTP, one-click installer, and DNS management.

4.     Knowing the Value of e-commerce

With the advent of online payment mode, almost all the websites established are looking for revenue either by selling a product or advertising as a middleman. You must pick a provider that supports e-commerce facilities like SSL certification (i.e. those that have addresses beginning with HTTPS), dedicated IP, and one-click shopping cart software installation.

5.     Know your Security Policy

In a virtual world, your websites and your information are prone to hacking. Therefore it is wise to check the security levels before investing in any service provider. Cybersecurity is quickly gaining its impetus thanks to web hosting engineers. For robust cybersecurity, you need a web host that can provide an arsenal of tools to defend you against a wide range of threats. You need strong firewalls, intrusion prevention, email scanning, spam removal, and SSL encryption. A good web host will take care of all these.

6.     Knowing the Terms and Conditions

A good web host will keep its terms and conditions well placed and known. Managing and updating your backups, if in case your website gets hacked or crashed, you will still be able to restore it. One important advice here is when you are choosing hosting, look for a host that guarantees an uptime of at least 99.95% and in case of shared hosting otherwise 99.99%. Also lastly check for migration services, the refund policy and conditions related to payments, if in case you want to move to a new service provided. A good service provider will make your endeavour much easier and secure.

Hope these 6 points help you in your quest to host a website. Keep exploring more and get going on your website.

Wanting to help the Christmas community continue to earn income during what would normally be their busiest time of year, it is calling all Santas, elves and reindeer to submit their idea for an Online Experience idea. It will also be partnering with Santa Visits USA to offer even more ways to meet Santa Claus and the entire North Pole gang this year. These include Christmas magic with Kris Kingle himself, a holiday-themed bedtime pyjama party, a visit with head elf, Buzz Twinkletoes, and even a murder mystery show with Mrs Claus.

“According to a new report by the Fraternal Order of Real-Bearded Santas, nearly a third of their members surveyed will not be taking part in in-person visits this year,” says Airbnb. “As many of Santa Claus entertainers worldwide live on a fixed income and are reliant on their income from appearances during the holiday season, this new reality has created serious economic hardship for countless Santa performers.”

Guests can also enjoy Santa Claus around the world, with special experiences designed for families of all backgrounds, including people with disabilities. These include a “Virtual Visit and Story Time with Santa,” “Mama Claus Holiday Joy,” “Sign Language Santa,” “Meet Santa Claus in Lapland” and “Santa Storytime” with an award-winning author. In addition, hosts are sharing their own holiday traditions from around the world so people can feel festive from home, such as “How to Throw a Holiday Dinner Party,” “Create recycled puppets for the holidays” and “Sing Holiday Songs with a Broadway Star.”

Airbnb will provide additional support to Santa Claus entertainers who are interested in becoming Online Experience hosts, helping them to make a seamless transition to virtual visits. Further information is available here, and you can read about the holiday experiences already available here.
