4 things to look out for in choosing a web hosting platformWritten by Arvind Gawade
With hundreds of web hosting companies out there competing with one another to offer “best” web hosting package on internet and with all hype that goes along with it, its easy to get confused or perhaps even purchase package that is not right for us. Here are 4 essentials to look out for when choosing a web hosting platform for your website/business.
1.The reputation of web hosting company. Most web hosting companies on web have been in existence for at least 2 years and they are usually handled by experience and IT savvy network engineers who can provide necessary support and services to their customers. However, there are also several “mom and pop” set ups out there which are handled by amateurs who are greedy to make plenty of your own money without even knowing how to do something as fundamental as setting up your user account. Be sure to check credentials of web hosting firm by either reading their about us or technology they use for their server farm. Make sure you pick a company that has been around for at very least 2 years and have a successful track record with 95% up time for all its servers. That’s a reasonable expectation as 100% is not a realistic aim in computing world.
2.How much of storage space are you given? Most web companies out offer space that range from as small as 20 MB to as big as 2GB or even more. However, this depends largely upon you user. Make sure you do not get sold into buying more space then you need. This is a common trend amongst novice web owners who tend to feel that bigger space better and more powerful their website can be. That is most contorted statement I have ever heard in my 5 years as a IT expert and internet marketing consultant. Personally, I would recommend you to use Host4profit as your hosting company because I find that they provide most innovative packages that even reward you by paying you to be a member & in many other ways too one of which includes a trip to Bahamas.

3.What is available bandwidth space for you to transfer data each month? We all need to transfer data to our website and update its content often in order to stay afresh and also to keep our ratings high up on search engines right? Well all web hosting companies offer a certain bandwidth or “transfer window” if you will to enable you transport your data from your local computer hard disk drive to your web server. However this transfer window has a limited space. This is set to prevent servers on their side from having a bandwidth overload from users repeatedly transferring large amounts of data to and fro without any limits being set. A bandwidth space is allocated to enable you to manage amount data that you want to transfer each month into storage space allocated. Note that data you transfer is constantly kept track of until you have reach transfer limit for that month. Most web hosting companies tend to be stingy on this so as to provide so called “high speed data transfer” to their clients. They usually cap this bandwidth off at 1GB. Host4profit however offers its client a 3GB bandwidth per month. Can you see why everybody is switching to Host4profit now?
