NuWeb Hosting knows that your website is a big investment. That is why we provide high quality web hosting services at a discount. We keep in mind web hosting best practices that make your website function optimally, but there are also several best practices that you need to keep in mind as a consumer shopping for web hosting. Not every company can be trusted to provide exceptional support within your budget, so it pays to be careful.
1. Get savvy with web hosting terminology: being an informed consumer is always important, and the web hosting industry is no exception to this. Check out our blog post on terms you should know so you can work more efficiently with our support staff and convey your vision accurately.
3. Decide your commitment time: do not blindly commit to a long-term contract. This is especially important for websites that are growing rapidly, as they may outgrow their hosting contract in a year or two.
4. Set up an easy payment method: your web hosting company should make life easier, not more complicated. So inquire about different payment options, like registering your credit card or having bills mailed to you. The goal should be to find the payment system that fits seamlessly into your current billing and accounting system.
5. Test and re-test customer service: you should never have to wait to get necessary support and answers to any problems you may face. So check to see if your web hosting company offers live phone support and what hours this is provided. A great web hosting company will respect the urgency of any problems you encounter and offer 24/7 live phone support.
Empower yourself to make an informed choice about which web hosting company you use. NuWeb Hosting always encourages potential customers to follow these web hosting best practices because we are confident that we stack up exceptionally well in all regards.
