7 Steps to Choosing a Reliable Web Host
As business owners, the time we spend choosing a supplier is often in proportion to the money we spend on that service. But is this always the best approach?
When you choose a web host, you are investing in a supplier that is responsible for keeping the online part of your business — usually, your website and your email — operational. Many of us rely on our websites for lead generation, sales and support; we rely on our emails as our primary means of communication. If the platform on which these services rely becomes unavailable, we immediately start losing sales, upsetting our customers, and wasting valuable staff and personal time.
Price is a concern to all buyers but your decision on selecting the right web hosting for your site should not revolve around that only. Performance, reliability, support, speed, functionality and compatibility with the tools used by your web developer are equally necessary to consider. In our experience, we find these hosting companies worth considering:
