It’s good to take your time rather than rush to hire an agency providing hosting website services. Take your time to learn more about issues such as domain name registration. Look at the differences between premium domains, cheap domains, and free domains. However, once you acclimatize with all that, you can proceed to read as much information as you can get on hosting tips.
What you learn, and apply, determines whether you enjoy the best web hosting package or not.
Explained below are a few hosting tips worth considering.
Evaluate the Benefits of Cheap Domains vs. Free Domains
First, it’s important to distinguish what to pay for from what is free. Free domains are just as tempting as cheap domains in that they don’t require a lot of money to register. A free domain might appear attractive, but only if you own it. For the most part, ownership of such domains is often in the hands of the hosting company. Never spend money on free or less costly domains before asking as many questions as possible.
Learn to Separate Hosting Website Services from Domains
Secondly, hosting services are different from the domain. For example, registering the domain involves using generation domain name tools. Hosting services, on the other hand, are a different ballgame altogether. Many clients get these two services from the same provider because it’s convenient to do so. Separating and the two is highly advisable in case one provider proves unreliable down the line.
Check the Cheap Domains’ Disk Space and Bandwidth
Two of the most important factors to consider before choosing a hosting firm is:
- a) Disk space
- b) Bandwidth
Before developing and launching your website, take the time to know your limitations concerning bandwidth and disk space. Understand the consequences of going over the limits. As your site grows and attracts more traffic, users will visit to download whatever they like. More traffic and increased downloads will eventually have a bearing on bandwidth and disk space. Be mindful of the possible reactions you can get from the website.
- a monthly bandwidth of less than 5GB is not sufficient
- The average disk space for one web page is 1-2MB
Lastly, you can never get too much information from the web hosting firm. Therefore, ask for as much information as possible. For example, ask for customer reviews and feedback. Do a detailed background check on the website hosting firm. Such information prepares you to know what to expect if you’re considering signing a long-term contract with the company. Long-term contracts are good, but only if you study them carefully to understand what they entail.
