We all need a web presence, but what are the most important things to look for when choosing a web host? Let’s jump into it! In no particular order:
Bandwidth is important because if you don’t have enough, you may have trouble with the visitors of your site. Some sites, like Kiiff.com, offer unlimited bandwidth. Try to get these services if they are the right price. You may not see the payoff immediately, but when things start heating up you will be glad that you had it.
Availability, Availability, Availability. Your website is as useless as a helicopter ejection seat if it isn’t up, so make sure that you are getting at least 99% uptime. If you can, get a service with even more. Here’s a fact to consider, last year Kiiff.com only had 15 minutes of downtime!
3 and 4. Infrastructure and Speed
These two I put together because they can depend on each other. If a company is using dated infrastructure, it can directly correlate to a client site’s speed. Various database technologies like MySQL or MariaDB can affect load times and Litespeed servers perform much faster than Apache web servers.
Everyone needs help sometimes. It is paramount that the host that you choose provides expert support in their field and that they are able to efficiently resolve problems. See if they have phone support, ticket support, chat support, or some combination of them all. Additionally, see if their support team is available and if previous customers have been satisfied by their team. You never know, this same team down the line may make the difference between a pleasant web experience and a hassle.
I hope this has helped you in your journey to find the web host you have been looking for. Feel free to drop a ticket to Kiiff.com support if you have any hosting questions or need assistance in growing your web presence further.
