Web hosting is an important part of every business with an online presence. Best results are achieved when companies are mindful that their chosen hosting partner will be an integral part of their business process.
Below is a list of some of the BIGGEST mistakes or oversights businesses can make when considering web hosting services:
Growth. Spikes in business activity, whether steady or seasonal is something every business needs to take into account when considering their online presence. If not accurately projected and planned for, websites can experience crashes that result in users having an unpleasant experience with your business. Is your online presence up to speed with your growing business needs and selling cycles?
Disaster Recovery. Many companies don’t properly test power supplies and backups. How secure is your site’s uptime?
Guarantees. Be sure to read the fine print. When a web host can’t honor the guarantees they offer or set so many requirements that almost no one qualifies, trouble is on the horizon. Make sure to ask questions, present scenarios and secure referrals.
Customer service. You need to have a web partner who is accessible 24/7. When an issue arises, you need the assurance that help is available and the resources are knowledgeable. When evaluating a hosting provider, ask about their customer service policies and protocols. Know before you need it what customer support you can expect.
Analyzing results. Only 1% of website owner’s analyze their online presence. Knowing the sources of your sales, the vehicles that drive them and the demographics your business is targeting is valuable information. Does your current host provider provide you with the tools to track this data?
