We like BlueHost as a budet web host, and have compiled this article on what makes a good budget web host below our awesome yxymedia logo. :)
What makes a good budget web host?
There are a number of different thing to take into account when choosing the perfect web host. Getting all the benefits of expensive web hosting on a budget can be a daunting task for some, so it helps to know what to look for. Take a look into the many different companies that are out there. Many have similar layouts, with similar things being offered. How can you decide between such closely related plans? Take your visitors into account first.
The whole point of your online business is to get a new group of customers to target. No matter what your product is, be it physical or digital, you need to take this customer base into account. Make sure that the decisions you make directly affect and increase the overall outlook of your business. Overlooking your soon to be customer base and trying to save money will cost you much more in the long run.
Traffic is a big aspect of any website. The main thing that your hosting must provide is a large enough bandwidth to smoothly load your website for a number of users at the same time. The more visitors to your site, the more bandwidth you will need. With most large hosting companies, unlimited bandwidth is provided. Unlimited is a term thrown around very freely with web host companies, although they rarely allow you to use too much on certain plans. If you are just starting out, any site that offers unlimited bandwidth will probably suffice for the moment.
Next thing to look into when choosing a budget host is the uptime percentage. A 99.9% uptime is regularly offered, but it is important for you to check past customer reviews in this respect. It always makes sense to see the opinions of people that have experienced the service first hand. If the company has a track record of large spats of downtime, it is not a good budget web host and it is time to move on.
The ease of use of your web host is also important. Most web hosts these days use an interface called cPanel. The cPanel interface is the most commonly used in the market because it is the best around. It makes the many tasks a webmaster must take easier through its easy to follow attributes. When choosing your web host, make sure it provides cPanel, unless of course you are more comfortable with harder to use interfaces and would like to make things difficult for yourself.
The final and most important thing that a good budget web host must provide is a high level of customer support. Customer service is very important when it comes to online businesses. Without the quick response of a support team, any problem that arises could completely throw off your customer base and have them running for the next best thing. Any good budget host must have at least three different ways to contact them, at any time of the day. Whether they have email, a dedicated phone line, online support or any number of other ways to be contacted, it is essential that you contact them as soon as you become a customer. Find out how they respond and how fast. Past experiences from former and current customers can also be taken into account.
With all these things considered, you can easily figure out the best web host in your budget. Just remember to go by the features, and not just the price.
