Choosing a good web hosting company is normally a hard decision to make. It made worse by the fact that there are so many fake web hosting companies which appear to be good ones.
I started out on blogger some years back, i do not want to say anything bad about blogger. For sure, they gave me a free platform to publish my content until i felt hat i was experienced enough to host my own blog. So, i began my search for a good web hosting company.
Most of the web hosting companies work in the same way, the only difference is the way the package their products. That being said, it should also important to note that some web hosting companies are better than the others.
How to know a Fake web hosting company
Just as the number one rule on the internet goes that ‘If something is too good to be true, then it is a scam’, so goes the works of the web hosting company. There is a company i know which for just $1 , they promise
unlimited disk space
unlimited ftp accounts and so on.
That can never be true, there will always be a limitation on things like inodes, running processes and so many others. Such web hosting companies tend to offer few inodes which will force you to upgrade or risk suspension for your website.
Before you buy a web hosting package, check for things like;
How many inodes will the sites allow, some web hosting companies will offer you 20,000 inodes, others 40,000 and others even provide 250,000. Do not host with a company which provide less than 50,000. Otherwise, your website might be suspended in a short time.
Also check for Resources usage, some website hosting will require you not to exceed 25% of the system resources, i think that is not so bad. Do not choose a web hosting company which will provide you with less than 15% system resource usage. Other wise, you will end up losing traffic to your site and even suspension.
That is closely related to ‘Running Processes’, a web hosting company will require you not to exceed a certain number of running processes. Chose a company which will guarantee latest 10 running processes.
Make a Choice
It is not good to go for unknown web hosting companies, you can not know their record. But decide to go with the popular one since there are many reviews about them around the internet. Some of the popular web hosting companies which we have include;
IX Web Hosting
and many others
But before you choose any, make sure that the web host you go has good customer care. I have been self hosting for 3 years now and i understand the value for customer care. It is a must that some where some time, your website will get a problem and you will need to contact customer care.
Choosing the best web hosting company might not be so simple since the good ones can not be the best in every aspect. But going for the known companies will give you a good chance of landing on the best web hosting company.
