FAQ: Which hosting provider should I choose?
Have you ever received huge amounts of spam and don’t know why?
Is your website slow when loading up?
Has your website gone down for periods of time, disrupting your emails or causing problems with your IT?
Perhaps it is time you looked at a new hosting provider!
More often than not, these problems generally happen due to one of three things...
- Spam: You may be hosting your website with a cheap or free provider who shares the same hosting provider as your ‘spammer’.
- Slow: Prices for hosting only come down when you are sharing space with hundreds, if not thousands of other users. This is how most of the well known providers such as 123 Reg keep their prices so low. However, sharing your hosting space with such a vast amount of other users will most definitely slow down all of the websites that are sharing that space, including yours. This means that people looking at your website could be waiting for your site to load and in most cases, people simply move away from slow websites onto one that loads quickly.
- Downtime: As above, sharing your hosting space with so many other people means that if anything happens to the server they are being hosted on, or they are performing maintenance on it, then your website and emails could be disrupted along with the many other people that you share it with.
By hosting your website with a cheap or free hosting provider, you are putting your website and your business at risk of ‘down time’, ‘virus’ and ‘spam’.
