    Factors to consider when choosing a web hosting plan

    Most businesses need a decent website. A site can helps a company showcase their products and services. The good thing is that a website can be accessible anywhere at anytime since the server that is hosting the site works 24/7 in an Internet Data Center. There are many hosting provider available on the internet. However, a company must choose a right plan from a decent provider in order to allow the website to load quickly and has less downtime as possible. Here are some factors one needs to take into consideration before selecting a web hosting plan.

    1. Years in business
    It is advisable to choose a hosting provider that has been operating for at least 3 years. The longer the more experience of the provider and the more likely that the company can provide competent support.

    2. Server location
    It is important to choose a host that is demographically closest to your targeted audience. In this way the audience can open your website quickly. But if your targeted audience is around the world you should use CDN.

    3. Support
    Support is very crucial for a hosting service. It is best to choose a web host that provides 24/7 reliable and competent support.

    4. Price
    The price should be reasonable not too expensive and not too cheap. Keep in mind that a low cost package tends to be an oversold package from the web hosting provider.

    5. Disk Space
    The disk space should be enough for the usage of your website. This depends on the type of your site. A dynamic website with lots of images, for instance, would require more disk space than a simple static site.

    6. Bandwidth
    You must choose a hosting package with enough monthly bandwidth otherwise your website will not be able to accessible if the bandwidth is used up during the month. Beware that most hosting providers that provide unlimited or unmetered bandwidth plan oversell their resources.

    7. Web Control Panel
    Most hosting providers use Directadmin, Plesk, or cPanel. It is best to choose a web host that provide the web control panel that you are most familiar with.

    8. Language Support
    Choose a web hosting plan that support the programming language that you are going to use to develop your website.

    9. Hosting type
    There are many types of hosting plan available such as shared hosting, reseller hosting, VPS, and dedicated server. Remember to choose the appropriate type for your website.

    10. Backup
    Backup is important. You should use a host with automated backup. A free restore is preferable since you never know when you website is going to have problems like being hacked.

    11. Server specification
    It is good to choose a hosting provider that use high performance servers to allow your website to load fast. Choose an SSD hosting plan if site loading time is important for you.

    12. Security
    Don't forget to take security into consideration before choosing a hosting provider. Choose the plan with latest OS, software, PHP, and MySQL for better security. If uptime is crucial for you choose a web hosting plan with DDOS protection.

    13. Uptime
    Uptime is very important for any website since a website needs to be accessible at anytime. It is best to choose a hosting provider that offers at least 99% uptime guarantee.

    14. Features
    Some features such as free SSL certificate, instant CMS installation, PHP version selector, MySQL version selector, backup, SSH access, email hosting included, and DDOS protection could be beneficial for you. Remember to ask the hosting provider about their features before you buy their service.

    15. Money Back
    Money back guaranteed is important. With it you can get full refund if you are not happy with the service or support.
