    Choosing the Right Web Hosting Provider for Now and the Future - Is that all there is to worry about?

    (Page 4 of 5 )

    Absolutely not.  Weíve talked about functionality.  Weíve talked about having room to grow as your needs do.  But thereís one vital element that we havenít touched on yet, and it may be the most important of them all: available bandwidth.

    It just makes sense, with all of the web hosting providers on the Internet, that some of them have faster connections to the Internet than others. This is the one thing that I am most critical about when looking for a web hosting provider.  I always want to know how many connections to the Internet they have, and how fast they are.  If I find a provider who has a T1 to the Internet and nothing else, Iím moving on to find something better.  Good web hosting providers have more than one connection to the Internet.  This is not only for speed purposes, but for back up; what if one of those connections fails?  Its nice to know that there is some sort of redundancy built into your websiteís availability.

    So don't neglect to ask the question.  What kind of connection does this provider have to the Internet? And does the provider have more than one?  This should quickly help separate the fly-by-night hosting companies from the well-established ones.

    And this, in turn, brings up yet another good point.  How long has this web hosting provider been in business?  Obviously, if you are building a website, you want for it to be around for awhile.  Several years ago, I made the mistake of signing up with a relatively inexpensive hosting company.  I didnít check to see how long they were in business.  I signed up, and paid a year in advance.  Two months later, my website was gone.  The company folded up and went out of business.
