Hosting is not as easy as it seems to be, especially in the field of digital-marketing. Today, there are several options of hostings to choose from but the fact that matters is you need to act very wisely while choosing the right hosting for your site. Otherwise, you would have to suffer a lot of burden.
Choosing the right and high-quality host is very important if you wish to own a website. A low-quality host will decrease the number of your audience thereby leading to decrease your name and fame in the world of business of your type. It can also be one of the root-cause behind the slow and irritating performance of your site. Similarly, there can be security-issues, support-headaches and many other difficulties that you would never wish to face.
Go through the reasons below that you need to consider when switching to a newer, more advanced and more trustworthy web-host.
1. Frequent Breaking Down
The frequent breaking-down of your site creates an adverse effect on your pride and honor among your audience. It creates anxiety, anger and hatred among the audience urging them to leave using the site forever. This leads to affect your all-round business performance.
If your site loads faster and runs smoothly when you work doesn’t mean the same would happen with your audience. There are many possible reasons behind the frequent breaking-down of your site. Sometimes, your site may break-down in-case the host can’t hold the overload of the heavy traffic. Very often, it can occur due to the bad neighbour effect where a site uses large number of resources. Not often but sometimes, sites go offline without any reason.
It is advisable to change your host in case if you experience this type of problem more often.
2. The Loading-Time of Your Site
The slow loading-time could be your greatest enemy in killing your website by gradually degrading its impact upon the audience. The initial minutes when a user lands on your site plays very much important role in determining its rank. The more your site makes users wait for being loaded, the more are the chances that your bounce-rate will be higher. Having a higher bounce-rate sends a signal to Google and other search-engines to demote the site mentioning it as a low-quality site.
Thus, having a high-speed loading time is much more important if you wish to increase the rank of your site.
3. Customer Support Creates A Bad Impact
Hope you are familiar with this feature of almost all of the modern websites. Well, it’s been the common system of providing a column for customer support on the websites but very few people know that it creates a bad impact upon the visitor which leads to increase the bounce-rate of the websites that finally results into low-ranking of the site. The visitors develop the feeling that the site may be less authoritative in case they see a customer support section on the site. Thus, it’s better to replace ‘customer support’ section by something else meaningful.
4. You’ve Maxed Out the Current Resources
Sometimes, you appear to top the available resources of your current host. The host tries its best to support your site and its promotion. In case you are using a low-class hosting package and your site has the advanced features, there might be the chances that the performance of your site might go down.
Thus, it would be better to choose a host patiently and wisely.
5. Check For the Security-Holes
You shall get irritated, angry and annoyed in case you are hacked. If you’re really hacked, your host can detect the action before you and if tries well can save you from great damage.
Your host is responsible for all the safety and security related to your site. Mistakes can happen but if the same activity happens repeatedly with your site, it’s better to choose an alternate host.
However, you must be aware that all the faults are not always due to the host. Sometimes, it could be on your end if you haven’t applied the proper security measures.
6. Backups – Not the Part of the Deal
It’s very important to backup your site time to time. It helps to restore your site in case any technical error breaks down your site. You can have no worries in case your server gets collapsed in case you backup your site on a regular basis.
Backups can be looked after yourselves. There are several Plugins that can be used for this task. Some of these plugins are BackupBuddy and BackWPup. Still, if you wish to get your data backed-up by the host, it’s much more important to act wisely while choosing the right host for your site.
