If you have just started a business, you will need to find a good company to do the hosting on dedicated servers for your website. The problem is that there are hundreds of these companies so you need to research what your needs are and what hosting company can give you the best service for your money.
Research should include companies that have:
- Fully managed facility 24/7
- Good fit for your workload
- Great customer service
- Great security
- Dedicated servers with great performance
This means that the facility has a staff or staff members on duty all the time so problems don’t happen and if they do, someone can fix them immediately. Your website needs to be up and running all the time.
Fit for workload
The server you are set up on should fit your website not only in size but also can handle any amount of traffic you will be getting. Your customers should be able to get online to your website with no wait. When they have to wait; they will go somewhere else. In other words, the server you have been put on should not have too many other websites on it as well.
Great customer service
If there is a problem, the hosting company’s customer service should be fast. Whether by phone, message or email – you should be able to get someone in customer service easily and quickly. If you leave a message, you should not have to wait long for a return call.
We live in a world where hackers can get into a company’s website and steal hundreds of customer information including:
- Bank information
- Credit card numbers
Needless to say – the hosting company should have great security on their web servers. If you ask about security, they should be able to show you that you have no need to worry.
