How to avoid deceptive website hosting companies

Thursday, December 17th, 2009

When it comes to website hosting companies, there are a lot of firms out there that make empty promises and are very deceitful. Dealing with these companies can be very frustrating. They don’t always give you what you want and are often just trying to push for extra money. It sometimes happens that clients with small websites that attract very little online traffic get tricked into purchasing huge and more expensive packages meant for large enterprises, when it is absolutely unnecessary.

Being aware of bad website hosting providers

While these very unreliable and untrustworthy firms do exist, it is your duty to ensure that you do not fall victim to their tricks and lies. It is very important that you are informed about website hosting so that you know exactly what to expect and what to avoid.

To avoid learning the hard way, ensure that you know who you are dealing with. This means enquiring about the website hosting company’s reputation and history.

Ask as many questions as you like in order to feel comfortable. A firm with nothing to hide will hide nothing. They will also be happy to provide you with references of clients that they have hosted in order for you to contact them.

Be very weary about website hosting companies that advertise using methods such as spam. Here at Host Store, for instance, we do not bombard our clientele with useless spam in order to trust our services. Rather we allow them to view our website and if they need assistance, we offer 24/7 live chat and e-mail support.

Monday, December 7th, 2009

As everything is becoming internet driven, it is no wonder that there are many businesses cashing in on the opportunity to provide various services that will enhance people’s online presence.

There are numerous website marketing tools such as search engine optimisation, affiliate programs, pay per click and AdSense that give a website more exposure. These tools are necessary to ensure that traffic reaches a site and that this traffic gets converted into customers. Due to this there are many firms providing these services.

While these advertising aids are very useful, one has to start at the fundamentals. If it were not for web hosting, it would not be possible for website owners to launch their websites at all. Therefore, web hosting is becoming a vital service that can result in the reaping of great benefits for your business with its new global audience and potential customer base.

Bandwidth and cheap web hosting

Tuesday, December 1st, 2009

Bandwidth is more important than you might think when it comes to choosing the company that will host your website. Usually website hosting service providers that are more expensive will offer you a greater amount of bandwidth but because of budget constraints, there are many businesses that will look to cheap web hosting firms so that they can save a few pounds.

When looking at bandwidth, you need to determine how much the provider is offering before you make a choice. If a website hosting company does not offer enough bandwidth or it is too expensive to have unlimited bandwidth, it could happen that your website could run out of bandwidth leaving it shut down for a certain period. This is very inconvenient when running a business and any down time results in you losing money.

Some companies do provide you with excess bandwidth, but they often charge you an additional fee for this.

Cheap web hosting providers that offer great bandwidth

However, it is not fair to assume that only expensive web hosting service providers offer such great bandwidth. Luckily, there are a number of quality reliable companies that host sites for an affordable price and still include excellent or unlimited bandwidth in their packages.

It is vital that you do a bit of research in order to find these cheap web hosting companies that offer such wonderful bandwidth. Here at Host Store, we offer a variety of deals to suit your business needs and include unlimited bandwidth to all customers at an affordable price leaving you confident that your site will run with no down time.
