When you are looking to start using a web hosting service, there are many technical features that you should be considering in order to make an informed decision. With hosting covering a very wide range of products from shared web hosting to hosting ‘in the cloud,’ finding the right hosting solution for your business can be, at times, overwhelming.
There are, however, a number of other factors that should play a key part in your decision making process. In addition to the hardware hosting solution itself, it’s important that you understand the other features of your chosen web host. Often, the best value for your money and return on investment (ROI) comes as a result of service-related features, including customer support, service level agreements, and additional services included in your overall package.
GlowHost goes beyond offering the hosting plan that you want. Our goal is to give you the complete service package that you need, delivered with care and quality at all times. Whether you decide to order a shared web hosting, virtual private server hosting (VPS), dedicated server hosting or cloud hosting solution, GlowHost offers a number of value-added services to make setting up and running your server easier and more cost effective than ever.
1. Instant web hosting setup to get you online immediately
A common concern when ordering a web hosting plan is that you could potentially be waiting days for your hosting to become available. This is particularly true with those popular web hosts who handle many orders every day. Look for a provider who has invested in leading account administration systems, enabling them to set up your hosting solution immediately.
2. Industry experience with ongoing industry partnerships
They say that you can judge a person by their friends, and this is equally true in the web hosting industry. The most reputable hosting services have been growing steadily for years, developing the kind of long-term industry partnerships that enable them to make your day-to-day server administration easier with powerful software such as market-leader cPanel.
3. Dependable servers with a minimum 99.9% uptime guarantee
Whichever type of web hosting service you choose, your time and money is wasted if your web presence is not consistently online and ready to serve your customers. You need a hosting provider with a secure high connectivity data center. In the majority of cases, the most reliable web hosting services will include a service level agreement (SLA), giving you assurances as to the amount of uptime that the network will offer. As a minimum, you should be looking for a 99.9% uptime guarantee.
4. Easy to manage web hosting with 24/7/365 customer support
Once your server is online, you can maximize your return on investment by minimizing the amount of time you spend administering the various features of your hosting such as SSL certificates, mailboxes, or FTP accounts. Looking at the longer-term implications of your purchase, you should always search for a host who offers a user-friendly control panel for your day-to-day administration, and 24/7/365 expert customer support for those inevitable occasions when you need assistance.
