What Some Web Hosts
Don’t Want You To Know
web hosts in their desperate attempt to get hosting business
from you have plenty to hide. Here are some of the things they
will never tell you. For some start-up web hosts, service does
not exist. Low cost or budget web hosting services are the ones
most likely to fall under this category. Some will not provide
any information about their service while others will proudly
announce that they provide 24/7 service. This is quite often not
Many of the low-cost web hosts have little experience in web hosting. A good
way to find out about the level of service is to get the service
telephone number and use it before you sign on. This should tell
you a lot about the level of service you should realistically
expect from the host you want to use.
The other common truth amongst many web-hosting enterprises is that they
lack experience. Ensure before signing up that the company that
you are going with has reasonable experience. How long has your
host been in business? You do not want to be part of a start –up
experiment for an important service.
One other thing you will need to be very careful with when using low cost or
budget web hosts, is the fact that some of them are involved in
many different businesses and not just web hosting. Ask what
other businesses or projects your web host handles before
signing up with them. You want a specialist not a generalist
whose resources and time are bound to be so stretched that
chances of you getting reliable services are very slim indeed.
It is also a fact that some small low cost web hosts do not offer the
promised bandwidth. They should not advertise one thing and end
up providing something else.
The best way to protect yourself from most of these nasty surprises is to go
for a short term contract to begin with. You can for example
start off paying on a monthly basis. That way it will be easier
to change hosts when you discover something you don’t like.
