What does a web hosting company offer you!

As you are reading this, you probably a website owner or looking for a web hosting service, then you might have looked for some extra offer suppose to provided by your web hosting company. However, in this article, we are exploring all the details of general feature and extra feature with a web hosting service you need for.

Guarantee of uptime

The reason I am explaining about a uptime in 1st as this the most important factor to run your site smoothly. However, every web hosting provider demanding that they are proving 99.9% guaranteed uptime but did they actually? This will be a big question! As a customer, you must look for a service who can give you very less time on downtime from another. Yes, if any company proving 99.9% uptime with live monitoring then you must feel safe, but less than (if it is 99.8% also) that will not considerable. The wise customer always wants to choose a service with maximum uptime.

Storage capacity

This is major concerns for all kings of the business. When you buy a web hosting you must want to know how much data you can keep on the server? Well, you have a small business and your website doesn’t have much element to keep but maybe, later on, you must look for some more space. Some hosting providers informing unlimited storage! But are they really providing? Don't believe in such things read properly the terms and conditions of web hosting plan before you purchase it.

Bandwidth Limitation

Bandwidth is the amount of data used by your visitor to upload and download your site from server to user system. The more visitor you get, the more bandwidth your hosting needs. So this will be a most considerable factor for every hosting. Now a day almost all service providers providing unlimited bandwidth for hosting, but still in cheap web hosting no one can give unlimited. You must look for a plan having unlimited bandwidth. Don’t be confused in unlimited and unmetered! These two words are same in look and sound, but a huge difference, unlimited means no limitation of bandwidth and unmetered means no limit of using your limited bandwidth. Okay, maybe you are confusing! Let me clear about unmetered. Suppose you sign up with a plan of unmetered bandwidth and the bandwidth limit is 1GB. That means this data can be used by your visitor within 1 minute or one hour or the whole month. So have a discussion about bandwidth limit with your future service provider.

Customer Service/Tech Support

This may be a decision changer option for your web hosting plan. Always look for a service provider having 24/7 support with a different connecting medium such as telephone, email and chat. You may have to face some unexpected issue any time in the process, then you have to seek for a technical support with an instant solution. Your tech-support team must have highly professional and proactive person to help you with better technology. Must have their own database, article, forum and video tutorial. Don't trust a hosting company blindly, know what kind of support they are providing exactly.

Cost

Don't get divers your decision about a Web Hosting India Company because of he is proving web hosting service in cheap. It doesn't mean that the company will meet your criteria. But also some company providing good service in a pocket budget plan. Yes, paying a little bit extra can give you more advantage to you. Always work out with your budget and some necessary research can able to match you the best plan for your need. Some more factors you should work out is your billing cycle, mode of payment, and etc.

Backups

Every company or website owner always keeps their own backup for safety purpose. Apart from this if you lost your backup for any unknown reason, then definitely you will look forwards to your hosting company for backups. Ensure that your web hosting company is always keeping a regular backup. Your company should have a very easy and reliable backup system.

Plesk Panel

Although it is not so necessary for personal use website, but for business or an organisation Plesk (The best control panel forms all control panels in India) control panel is very important. This powerful tool will allow you to manage files, email, backups, manage add-ons and view statistics. Right now one of the easiest to use Plesk control panel is given by Hostindia.net in a standers price. If you want to add supporting carts, newsletters or anything like Add-on and all then you should have Plesk control panel. For some different company, the control panel name may be different.

Domain and sub domains facility

Once you own a website doesn't mean that it will be the end. Later for you have to purchase multiple domains and have to create so many sub-domains according to your need. Assured that your hosting plan should allow you to host a number of domains. Yes, every hosting plan can have a definite number of domain host with it. This is very important that your domain name should register with your name and details, not your service provider details. For a large business, it is very important.

Email account and features

Customized email creates a big impression on your business and you must look for the same in your web hosting plan and some additional features to it such as add-ons, plug-ins and popular language support. Find out how many email accounts and email space, you are getting with your web hosting plan. You can add multiple add-ons and plug-ins to your website to give a magical look. Also, keep in mind that you can synchronise google apps or Microsoft office with your excising website. If your web hosting plan comes with framework support that will give the advantage to create blog and forum for your website. Must look for SSL Certification which is a very necessary part of every website now a days.

Good terms and conditions

Whenever you are going to sign up with a web hosting company in India there should be some terms and conditions created particularly for this company. If you are going through the agreement and found that it is very short and not in detailed then it could become an obstacle for your future hosting. As a user's everyone hates to read the terms and conditions written by the company, but it is a very important part of an agreement. The company you are going to be connected should know what kind of hosted customer company having and should your company deals with any illegal practices such as spamming, pornography and so on.

Room to grow

Before choosing a web hosting company, make sure that the company will allow you to upgrade your plan or any feature immediately and easily which leads your business to grow. This won't be necessary to stick to a single plan, because when your small business will grow, then you need to add more features to your plan and this should be provided by your company very easily.

Money back guarantee

This is one of the most important reasons you should look at a company. Because indirectly it will indicate the company's service potential. Few companies providing 30 days money back guarantee for the unused month and some of then return the whole month. You ask, ask your company in the future the charging amount is going to be changed or it will remain same.
