Over the years I’ve managed to happily work with many businesses who understand the importance in well crafted web design and the impact it can have on their business, but when we start to talk about hosting it doesn’t seem to matter to so much. ‘Go with the cheapest’ they say or some already have a server setup somewhere in the middle east or America when there business and clients are UK based. Developing the site is one thing, but the server you run that website on will have a big impact on how it performs, which in turn will effect conversions, SEO, page rank and usability.
It’s like buying an Aston Martin and only ever driving it at 30mph.
A few things to consider:
1. Who is your website for? Does it sell goods international and/or do you expect high traffic.
2. What software or code is your site developed with? This can also make a difference when selecting a host.
3. What is the support like? If your website goes down, will it be corrected quickly.
4. What plan do they offer? Some hosts might seem cheap, but are you restricted by bandwidth or space.
