Check for Lengthy Trials
The longer the test time, the more confidence I have, as a general rule, in service quality.
Many of top web hosting companies, including InMotion Hosting, HostGator, SiteGround and many more have tried to offer the longest and most lucrative time to test for 90-day cash-back trials.
Some hosting companies also give a cash back guarantee like BlueHost. You can cancel and request a refund at any time.
Register Your Main Domain
Just because the server provides free domains, it doesn’t mean that your primary domain should be a free domain.
I usually choose to use my secondary pages with the free domain that I use for hosting experiments or SEO monitoring. The registration of your primary domain with another party has several notable advantages. Especially when you share your domain with another entity, it’s much easier to switch hosts. You will move the domain into a third-party registrar if you have registered already with your hosting business.
Choose the Right Mode of Payment
Please be careful when selecting a method of payment. PayPal, credit card and debit card are three popular alternatives. These all have their own certificates.
Credit cards: In fact, when using credit cards, you will want to be careful. I had to cancel my credit card about 10 years ago because a hosting company refused to stop charging. Payment protection through a credit card usually depends on your company / bank’s unique credit card. Many banks have additional protection for sensitive information, while others do not. Once you give your credit card number to a web host, test your bank’s privacy and data protection policies.
Debit cards: unauthorized transactions from a web hosting provider will best be prevented by using a debit card than by using a credit card. If something is wrong, you can only remove the money from your debit account, and you will not be paid by the company.
PayPal: PayPal appears to be a great option because it provides customers with apps that safeguard against fraud or theft and never has to disclose the hosting company’s credit or debit card data explicitly.
Compare Offers and Price Variations Between Hosts
While contrasting functionality and pricing between hosting companies, you must ask yourself two questions:
- are there better options than the web host mentioned below?
- Is the web host too costly or too affordable?
I don’t claim that all the inexpensive web hosts are evil. If you see an offer that seems too good to be real, it actually is. I did write a long, affordable web hosting guide before and discussed how to deal with common problems in affordable hosting deals (and use them!)
Nevertheless, keep in mind that we always get what we pay for in reality. You will most likely end up on a hurried server and second-grade service if you pay $0.99 a month for your host only.
If contrasting with hosting companies ‘ features and costs, always avoid firms that charge higher rates without there being a valid reason. For instance, for managed WordPress Hosting services, DreamHost charges $20 a month, but offers in-house technical assistance for WordPress (which is great). Hosting InMotion costs a little more ($2 an additional month), but its host website is ultra-fast and reliable.
Because something bad happens, back up your website regularly. Plenty of free plugins and inexpensive web services will operate with WordPress easily and efficiently.
And a basic cron will automatically do the job when you want to backup from cPanel (these free scripts were produced very long ago–please use them on your own risk).
Strengthen Your Password
Strong passwords are always used to mitigate hack risk.
If someone who works in the hosting company also stolens the password, you will also want to adjust it on a regular basis. While the risk is low, it is better to be safe than sorry. At least once every few months, security experts recommend changing passwords.
Check the Availability
When it comes to uptime, don’t 100 percent trust what companies say. Companies are sometimes vulnerable to extremely optimistic levels of uptime. It is therefore a wise idea to track the uptime of your web host yourself.
Be Open for Changes
Do not be afraid to change providers if something is not going well with your host. It’s not too hard to change your web host; it doesn’t influence your Google rating when it’s done properly.
In all, a secure, quick web hosting service is important for your site.
This will boost user experience, give users continuous blog exposure and increase their SEO rankings. All this means better exposure and more writers.
