One of the keys to a website that does not give us much concern is choosing a good hosting service. On more than one occasion we have found companies that make internal changes in their service and overnight we can not access with our old password to the FTP service, e-mail redirects do not work and many other complications.
If you want to choose good web storage, there are some clues that will serve so your company can have a site on the Internet in a position where it can sell to customers without constant server problems.
Tips for choosing a good hosting service
The first thing is to make a comparative study of the different options that we have, something that can be extremely difficult because there are hundreds and thousands of offers on the Internet. In any case, we should take into account these elements.
To offer a scalable service
It is important that we look at the options in web storage that we offer. Although at the beginning we need little space in GB, perhaps in the future we need to extend it. Or have more e-mail. Or buy more domains at a cheap price. They must allow us to expand the business so that come the moment does not have to change the server.
Minimum percentage of possible errors
A hosting service that is precisely characterized by constant 500 error on the server and pages are not loaded is certainly a poor quality service. We can study sites of other companies that are in the server (eg looking at their portfolios or asking in forums) to see if they work properly.
A technical responsible service
There are companies that are enormously difficult to contact, either because they have a mail form that never read, or because they take several days to answer us after we have a serious problem, as our website is dropped, for example. We need to take less than 24 hours to respond to our questions. For that it is recommended that we exchange e-mails with them before hiring.
Allow us to make a backup
A good hosting service should let us save and download our pages anywhere else so that, in case it had a problem, our entire project will not spoil. An alternative in this case if we need lots of space is to hire a remote backup.
Work with MySQL databases
If we want to install a WordPress on our hosting, we will need to let us create databases easily. Some even are optimized to create blogs on WordPress without having to do all the installation process. In any case, we can create multiple databases.
