Business articles & tips that will guide you.


If you have done everything on the creative and technical side to get your website ready, you are now going to want to figure out how to find the right web host. But as many people learn, finding the best host for your small business is not easy. Even though there are plenty of great web hosting companies around, the sheer number of choices means you may end up with the wrong provider. Here are four tips that will help you choose the right web host for your small business.

  1. Find a Dedicated Provider

Your web designer may suggest that putting your site on their private server is a way to save money and get dedicated support. In theory, it is a good suggestion. But the practical fact is that one or two people cannot handle the important task of keeping your website online and running smoothly. Go with a dedicated provider to save yourself a lot of hassle.

  1. Choose a Major Company

It may sound ironic given you are a small business, but you should always choose a larger company where web hosting is concerned. Why? They can offer you 24/7 support, cyber attack protection, the latest technologies and other perks. In addition, they can offer all of these services at a lower price, thanks to economies of scale. Do not think about going with a small web hosting provider, even if they are offering you a good deal.

  1. Pick Managed Servers

Managed servers are always the way to go. You may think that it sounds dubious, but that is because you probably do not know very much about web hosting. And that is fine – you are running a business not trying to host websites. Using a managed server means you are getting automatic backups, virus scanning, server health updates and other perks. If your server is not managed, it means that you are on your own for most of the in-depth services and updates that are required to keep a site functioning properly.

  1. Assess the Options

There are three major hosting options on the market: shared hosting, dedicated hosting and VPS. Shared hosting is when your site is running on a server with many other sites. A VPS means that you are on a shared server, but there are fewer people on that server. This results in better speed and higher prices. With a dedicated server, you are the only person on the server. But this also means that you are going to pay through the roof for the service.

The choice you make is entirely based on your circumstances. How important is your site to your company? How much can you afford to pay each month? Are you anticipating a heavy load during certain hours, or are you expecting a few people on your site at any given moment?

When you have found the right web host, you can get down to the business of putting your company’s website online. All that hard work will pay off, and you will see how your site attracts people to your business to buy your products or services.
