Typically, the Internet is constantly buzzing with traffic coming and going across high-powered tubes of bandwidth; all trailing in a blaze of 1’s and 0’s without stopping to realize what they’re doing. Should someone choose poor web hosting for their domain; a consumer might find themselves with a slow, underperforming, or even faulty website, directly affecting their sales.
Resist the temptation to accept free domain registration from the same company you will be using for web hosting. There are many start-ups and companies just trying to get bought out by the larger providers out there who may – or may not – be around for very long, and they probably will not give clients advance notice if they are going out of business. You will need to have immediate access to your domain registration if this happens, but may not be able to get it if they are out of business.
Redundancy, redundancy, redundancy. This is a factor you should consider in a quality web host. With your valuable information and business demanding consistent uptime and stability, it is crucial that your host has some level of redundancy in place, such as power, data and even environmental protections. You need to have a good idea of how your investment is being protected. Contact TechnicalRx for details regarding our infrastructure, but not only are our drives fully redundant, but our entire network is backed by one of the leading providers in the nation. Power, air conditioning, network hardware, and ISP provider “pipes” are all redundant.
Finally, cheapest is not always the best when you’re talking about your business website hosting. You should consider availability, support capability, and long term cost. Hosting can also affect your search engine optimization for the site, in regards to ssl, a dedicated IP, speed, uptime, and how many other sites are on your server. TechnicalRx has low density servers- we don’t bulk up thousands of websites onto one server as many other hosts do.
Poor, shared, or inexpensive web hosting can slow down the normal activity flow of the online world, and your bottom line, but you can prevent this from happening by choosing a provider like TechnicalRx.
