How to pick a provider

You don’t want to worry about overloaded servers, or companies that don’t take your security seriously. What you need is a company that offers tailor-made packages to tend to all of your hosting needs.

When it comes to selecting a hosting provider, we recommend you follow the tips given below.

Evaluate your needs

Before running to a provider, first think about your hosting needs. What kind of website do you need? Will the content of the page have videos? Do you want users to register? Do you want them to mount their own content? All these questions are important to evaluate the capacity and support of the hosting to choose. It is also advisable to estimate the daily traffic of your website, or you could end up paying too much for a service you don't need. Or, otherwise, one that cannot keep up with the traffic of its visitors.

Look for one that has a money back guarentee

A great advantage for a web hosting company is whether or not they offer a free trial. If they do, it is a good sign that the company relies on its services and its ability to satisfy its customers. It is also the best way to judge whether the hosting company is right for you. It is definitely an opportunity to take advantage of, since, after all, you are spending money earned with effort. There are companies that promote days or trial packages. For example, Encrypted Hosting offers a free month for you to test your services.

Bandwidth Limits

Bandwidth is something you must have heard of again and again. It’s simply a word that is commonly used to explain the amount of data sent from the server to the browsers of visitors. Each time a user loads one of their pages on their computer or any other device, they are using bandwidth.

Some web hosting providers usually set a ceiling to the maximum amount of bandwidth that you can make use of. This is known as allocation of bandwidth. Others, don’t. This usually doesn’t matter for websites with less visitors, but as your business grows, so will the number of visitors on your site.

When this happens you are faced with two scenarios: finding that your hosting provider prohibits your website from being displayed or having to pay extra for additional bandwidth. What you should really look for is a hosting provider that provides unlimited bandwidth.

Examine security measures

Cyber-security is a concern that both large companies and small entrepreneurs must have. When it comes to selecting a hosting provider, you must ensure your security history, as well as the protocols they have to defend against cyber-attacks in all its forms.

Many companies have experienced downtime failures due to DDoS attacks, even large companies such as Amazon, Pinterest, Airbnb, among others have suffered these attacks. Therefore, when choosing a hosting you should review all the security protocols offered by the provider.

Know the types of hosting that exist

There are actually different types of hosting available depending on the size of the site and the budget, including:

Shared hosting: In this type of hosting several websites share the same server. It is usually economical and practical, although resources are divided among other sites. Once the site grows, and begins to receive a lot of traffic, you may need to update.

VPS Hosting. The server is divided into multiple independent servers. You will continue to share a hosting, but you will have more space and control. You get a piece of the server without the cost of a dedicated server essentially.

Dedicated Hosting. High-performance sites need dedicated hosting, which uses full hosting to run the site. You do not have to share the server with anyone, though, keep in mind that it is the most expensive option.

Make sure the price matches the budget

The price will always be an important factor in any commercial outlay. However, stop there! You should keep in mind that you cannot choose a hosting service just because it is cheaper. First try and balance a quality plan that meets your requirements at a reasonable price. It is better to choose a quality company, which is well reviewed, has an excellent reputation and numerous plans, than to discount a cheap option that you will regret later.

The one that allows you to have technical freedom is the right one

To allow your website to work the way you would like it to, there are a variety of technical changes that you can perform. Some web servers or packages they offer, do not give users the possibility to use all technical freedom services such as:

FTP makes it easy for you to download or upload files straight from your computer.

PHP, which is the programming language that’s used by many websites and sometimes it is necessary to use specific variants that will integrate smoothly with the software.

MySQL, which is a type of database that’s required for running certain applications.

Ideally, being able to use it all is the right option and you should look for a hosting that allows it. This is even more important for people who need shared hosting.

Possibility of using SSL

In the simplest of terms, SSL is a small software that allows websites to completely encrypt all the data sent from a user's browser to their server. Almost every website should have one, and if yours doesn’t, it makes you less trustworthy in the eyes of your customer. And, that’s not something you want.

Do you have a control panel?

A control panel is like a dashboard that allows you to make changes to your site. Some hosts provide you with a control panel that is relatively restrictive, but you will want to choose a hosting provider that gives you a fully customizable panel. At Encrypted Hosting, we ensure that your website is fully customizable, and we give you a complete control panel to work with. We use cPanel, one of the most robust control panels right now, and we also offer free SSL certificates with all shared and reseller plans. On top of that, you also get a 30 days money back guarantee.

Think about the future

If you plan to grow your site in the future, what you need is a scalable hosting provider with powerful hardware and attentive support. If you want to keep your site small, a shared hosting plan may be all you need. When choosing a good hosting you should think about what you want in the future for your website. Is that it, or having headaches without knowing how to fix it.

The list doesn’t end there, however. Here are some other things that you need to consider:

Try the technical support service before

We rarely pay attention to the quality of technical support, which we could place among the most important to be taken into account before hiring a hosting service.

Unfortunately, when we make the mistake of not verifying the efficiency of a technical support and this is bad or does not exist, it’s usually too late when you realize it. However, there are some indications and some tests can be done that will give us sufficient elements to evaluate its efficiency.

A good sign that indicates a willingness to offer adequate technical support is the presence on the web of telephone numbers to contact. This gives the guideline that they have a service that you can have instantly. At Encrypted Hosting, we have 24/7 professionally trained staff to help you.

When someone offers a service with which we can only contact via email, it tells us two things: the first, that we certainly won't know if they will have staff 24 hours a day, 365 days a year that our site has to be active, and the second, it will surely take at least a few hours to meet our requirements.

A good idea may be to try to contact customer service outside office hours or on holidays. Even in these cases, our site must remain active, so we must assume that we will have services even at those times.
