To have an online presence for your business, you first need to find a web hosting company. When it comes to web hosting companies, there are zillions of companies who claim to offer you a wide range of features and options for you. It is really difficult to distinguish a good hosting company from such a large number of companies. When shopping around for web hosting company, you need to take these major factors into consideration.
I’ve tried a lot of host services. Some have been so dreadful either in their service or in their hidden costs that I had to drop them. Others have been decent although with some headaches along the way and only a couple have been exceedingly excellent. BlueHost web hosting is a service that I would describe as exceedingly excellent.
It is imperative that you purchase Worker’s compensation insurance. It is the law and for this you will need the advice of your attorney or business advisor.
Reliability is a must for your hosting company that you decide on. The host must always be up 24/7. You should receive next to no timeouts and your website should always load up. If your hosting company that you choose is down 5% of the time, then you ought to chance. Having a down time of over 0.5% is unacceptable.
Did you know that attorneys write these policies? That’s right the insurance companies have lawyers who draw up these contracts and most are filled with a tangle of legalese. They include many hidden loopholes designed to save the insurance company money. It is important that you fully understand every line in the policy so that when you file a claim your chances of being denied are slim.
Remember that computer you bought for your children to do research on, only they spend hours on social networks with friends they just saw at school? Or maybe you bought it the computer to write that best selling novel, which you never started? Or maybe you bought it because someone told you that you needed one, but you never really figured out why or what to do with it?
What experience does the hosting company have? Before signing up with any host, it may be a good idea to give them a bit of presales test. This is an opportunity to see how friendly their support team is and how long they take to respond to your inquiries.
Once you have chosen the right one, take note of your domain name account’s username and password if the domain name registration was a separate package from that which you have subscribed to from your current Web hosting provider. When you actually transfer hosting providers this information will be used in logging in to your new account. This is like transferring your house (domain name) to another location (server). Your new provider will assist you in the transfer so this will not be difficult.
