In this article, we will discuss everything you need to know about our services and web hosting in general.

We’ll start with a few things that should be kept in mind when choosing your plan and your hosting provider.

What Should You Focus On When Looking for a Hosting Plan?

There are two things that you need to keep in mind when looking for a suitable hosting plan:

  • Features you are looking for in a plan – are you a local or an international US company? Perhaps your market is outside the country you are based in?

These are just some questions to consider before going on with your decision. Server location, the number of websites you want to host and the bandwidth strength are just a few important things to keep in mind.

  • Elements that you’re willing to spend the most money on similarly, you have to consider the elements that are the most important to you and that you are willing to invest in.

If you want speed, you have to focus on a plan that offers you the highest possible speed for your website.

Other plans may offer you extensive support for your hosting, which may interest you if you don’t have the technical knowledge. These are the lines along which you should be thinking when considering your options

In the section below, we will discuss more thoroughly the main factors for you to take into consideration when choosing a hosting provider.

Choosing Your US Hosting Provider. Things to Consider

  • Server location – location matters to your host server and you want it to be as close to you as possible. Less distance means that information travels faster between your site and users. It also affects SEO, since fast loading speed is one of the key factors for search engines to rank websites.

  • Uptime – in terms of reliability uptime is important in order to know if your website will be live all the time. For example, at “Hostens” we offer a 99.95% uptime ratio, which means that you will be running 8756 out of 8760 hours per year. Long periods of downtime means losses for your business and frustrated visitors. No business owner wants that.

  • Storage – think about this as being the file cabinet of your website. Storage, in terms of hosting means the space you have to store your site’s backend files – HTMLs, Emails, Images, Scripts etc. Keep it in mind when choosing your plan, especially if you’re planning on expanding your website in the near future. Once you fill out your space, that’s it.

  • Support – in this case you have to assess how much you know about maintaining, designing and finding your way around a website. If you have experience, you might want to invest into other aspects of a hosting plan. If you need the work to be done for you, look for a flexible and reliable support team to help you out. At “Hostens”, we offer 24/7/365 support to our clients, so they can contact us at all times.

  • Backups – backups are important and should be stored on a regular basis on a couple of different servers. A malfunction or a security breach may result in huge losses of data and information valuable for you business.

  • Bandwidth – bandwidth is the level of transfer and data your website can handle. If your hosting company offers high level bandwidth, you can be sure that the service will be of a high quality. The level of bandwidth that you need correlates with the amount of traffic you get. So monitor your website’s statistics for a bit and then you’ll see for yourself what you need.

  • Number of allowed sites/domains – if you’re planning on expanding your business and creating additional websites for yourself in the future, make sure that your provider allows you to do so. With “Hostens” it’s quick and easy, since we allow our clients to change the hosting plan at any time.

Pros: In comparison with “Shared hosting”, this option is certainly more advantageous and offers more flexibility and security for your website. The cost for all of that is just a little higher, and you still receive all the necessary support from our hosting support team.

Cons: One of the flaws of this of design is that it requires a bit more technical knowledge to be operated successfully. That may prove challenging to some. An untrustworthy internet service provider could oversell space to make more money and leave accounts stranded without server space. There’s also a bit more maintenance required on your part compared to shared hosting.

Pros: Whether you’re reselling services as a middleman or buying them from a reseller company, you know you will not have to bother with the hassle of managing the hosting service, since there will be another party that will be ultimately responsible for everything. If you want to rely on others and receive a hefty bonus as a referral (in our case), this could be the best solution for you.

Cons: A reseller company may not always be an expert on how to manage clients in the field of hosting. If you’re a client and you buy services from a middleman, most likely you will be in touch only with the reseller, as a result you might get stuck if something goes wrong. At “Hostens” we make sure that our resellers are trustworthy, so, if someone is reselling from us you can be certain that you are buying quality services.
