Most people searching useful web hosting tips are often beginners, so today`s top 5 tips are with that in mind.
Disc Space refers to the amount of data that can be stored in your partitioned portion of a shared server. A minimum amount of space should be at least 50 GB to start your website with options to easily upgrade when needed.
Bandwidth, Data Transfer and sometimes Traffic are all similar words used to quantify the amount of bytes transferred when someone browses your site. For companies that offer “unlimited” bandwidth they often have fine print that defines limited and successful websites with high traffic may require more bandwidth. This however means your website should be making money with all that traffic and if not consider monetizing your website.
24/ 7 email and phone support is vitally important. There are many circumstances that require immediate support to avoid or resolve server or website interruptions. Make sure where ever you decide to host that support is available 24/7 both with email and live voice support.
Email should be easily integrated with your website and you should have the ability to create or add on as many accounts as needed directly through your control panel.
There are many options and varieties of web panels or control panels available from hosting companies. I would recommend staying with the most popular and advanced control panel, cPanel. A sophisticated control panel will allow easy management of webmail, email, website applications, domain DNS zone files, security options, backups, myphp, SSL certificates and so much more.
