Ten "Golden Rules" To Follow When Choosing An Web Host.
Written by by Dimitar Avramov, CEO, HostColor.com 12/09/04
I have been managing a web hosting company long enough to know who in this business plays by the rules and who doesn't. Making the right decision when choosing a hosting service is a difficult enough now and it will become even harder. Why?
The hosting market has grown a lot within the last two years and many newcomers stepped on the scene. Most of them have been attracted by the industry's promise of significant growth. The Asian market is projected to increase by 15% per year until 2008. It should be noted that this prediction does not include the Japaneese growth rate. Europeans spent 1.8 billion dollars for hosting in 2003 and expectations for the coming years even higher. According to the Market Researchers, the European hosting market will reach $6.8 billion by the end of 2005. In the UK only consumers and businesses will spend $1.7 billion for hosting in 2005.
Attracted by the good omens many of the new hosts get down to work without having a complete service solution or a plan how on their business development. As usual with newcommers, the brand new companies often try to beat down the prices or start offering high rate, or even unlimited, banwidth and space to the potential customer. By flooding the market with a "mess of big promisees" providers only confuse most people who seek hosting services. Many of the new companies fail to meet requirements and as a result the industry's quality of service does not live up to expectations.
We have to work hard to prevent this situation of having a large number of unhappy customers. The industry should introduce more strict rules and standards that must be respected by both providers and customers. Of course we shall also keep the market open and to prevent any chance of an oligarchy led by a few big corporations.
How to keep the hosting industry's growth is a substantial debate. Realizing the importance of this issue I can put in my thoughts into the discussion. Here are my suggestions and advice to new web hosting companies and especially for those who need to choose their new web hosting provider.
1. Make your Own Research
2. Ask for reviews
3. Check for Provider's Business Establishment
4. Require Phone Support
5. Go for Companies That Offer Reasonable Pricing
6. Get Information about the Provider's Policy
7. Do Not Tolerate Illegal Activity
8. Check Host's Brand and Business History
9. Support Competitive Providers
10. Ask for Host's Business Engagement
