When I purchased my first web hosting plan, I didn’t know what I was looking for. I based my buying decision on price, as opposed to quality. Eventually, my purchase turned out to be a burden because my hosting providers servers always crashed. So, today we’re going to talk about 3 elements quality web hosting plans offer so you can know what to look for when you decided to purchase hosting for yourself.
Element #1 – All Inclusive Hosting Plan: Some hosting companies offer their hosting services a la carte. This means you’ll have to purchase your hosting, your domains, and your emails separately. Based on your business, this might be the best plan for you. However, if you’re like most businesses, you’ll be expanding in the future. If that’s the case, the last thing you’d want is to have to purchase new emails and more hosting space every time you wanted to add something new to your website. That’s why it’s best if your purchase a web hosting plan that’s all inclusive: you get everything in one package instead of separately. For as little as $9 a month (a days lunch for some people), you can purchase a web hosting plan that offers unlimited domains, emails, and other important web hosting services you’ll need.
Element #2 – Great Customers Service: The last thing you want is terrible web hosting with terrible customer service. When I was having my hosting issues, I would contact my hosting provider and literally wait on the phone for what felt like hours. And once someone did come on the phone, I would always get redirected to someone else. Ultimately, I ended wasting my time going through their phone tree merry-go-round. So before you purchase your hosting plan, I’d encourage you to call them up to see how easy it is to get in contact with them, how helpful their staff is, and what type of customer support they offer. Trust me, it’s well worth the time. So make the most of it.
Element #3 – One-Click WordPress Installs: If you’re going to build a website in this day in age, I’d recommend building it with a content management system (CMS). And the best CMS in my humble opinion is WordPress. A CMS like WordPress will allow you to manage your website yourself with little to no website experience. It stores all your content in one database and also allows you to change your websites “design theme” without messing up your content. So with that being said, it’s important that your web hosting plan comes with one-click WordPress installs. This will allow you to set up websites quickly, which will help you be more time efficient so you don’t waste precious time trying to figuring things out that only require one click in WordPress.
Your web hosting plan is the backbone of your website, so it’s imperative that you purchase a quality plan. Now that you know what a quality web hosting plan should look like, you shouldn’t have to experience the hosting horrors I did. With a great all inclusive hosting plan, great customer service, and one-click WordPress installs, your website will have the strong, solid foundation it needs to be successful. And remember: you get what you pay for, so make the most out of your investment.
