4 Things To Look For In An Exceptional Web Host

Searching for the ideal web host may be confusing whether you are planning to launch a personal blog or if you are interested in launching a commercial or business-related website. When you want to find an exceptional web host that meets any needs you may have, there are a few features to look for to ensure you are satisfied at all times. Finding the best web host can be done by knowing what you need and how to properly research web hosting companies online before making your decision.

Uptime Guarantees
Finding the right web host for you that is reliable and exceptional requires a guaranteed uptime percentage of 99.99% or better. Always ensure you research each web host you are interested in to find one that offers an uptime guarantee, keeping your website running at all times without lagging or losing connection. Some web hosts do not provide a guarantee, which can ultimately lead to frustration from your visitors and potential customers who are attempting to access your site.

When you begin to compare web hosts, it is important to consider the features that are important to you based on the type of website you plan to launch as well as your own experience when it comes to programming and design. You can find web hosts that include easy setup and install features to quickly add external plugins and software into your site without downloading, installing and properly coding them yourself. Finding a web host that provides “cPanel” is ideal if you want to quickly add your favorite CMS, message board or even eCommerce store setup into your site without having to know how to program it properly yourself.


You should also compare the amount of space that is available with each web host you are interested in along with package deals that are offered to find the best price monthly, semi-annually or even annually. Ensuring you have enough space will allow you to add additional content, images and media files to your site with ease and without feeling limited.

Consider whether you plan to create your own website layout or theme before you choose a web host. It is possible to find a web hosting service that provides an entire template library to choose from which is ideal if you want to quickly launch your website without coding a layout yourself or hiring a professional to help with implementing the look you have in mind.

Bandwidth Caps
It is important to read the terms and conditions with all web hosts before you make a decision to review whether or not they have bandwidth caps, even if your plan says “unlimited bandwidth”. Some web hosts provide unlimited bandwidth until you are using up too much of it with your visitors, causing your site to become suspended. Finding a web host that truly offers unlimited bandwidth will ultimately save you money and a headache of having to search for an entirely new service once your site is down or suspended. Additionally, review the terms and conditions to ensure that you will not be charged more for additional bandwidth used outside of your plan to avoid an unwanted and overpriced bill.

Before you make a decision on the web host you want to go with, reading reviews and customer testimonials on 3rd party websites is highly recommended. When you read reviews of a web hosting company, you are more likely to gain insight into the type of services that are provided as well as an in-depth review of the customer service that is offered to anyone using the hosting site themselves.
