Following is a list of the common mistakes that different web
hosts tend to commit.
1. Falling For The Price Trap A website price at a very low rate
will generally provide extremely slow site or common services
will be denied because the bandwidth was maximized. Use your
instincts and avoid low-priced websites.
2. Lack of Reseller Research Reseller hosting is not bad. As a
matter of fact, good support is provided by resellers. However,
it will be safe to research your reseller. They may offer good
packages but they may be inexperienced in other aspects of web
hosting. A good reseller must know their products inside and
3. No Clear Definition of Web Site Requirements. List down the
resources that your web site will need and add more as you begin
to expand. This facilitates everything when an upgrade of your
website is needed as you can simply discuss them with your host.
4. Purchasing Hosting In An Auction Auctioned hosting, to say
the least, is not unreliable as it may seem. However, these
hosts have a great deal of terms and conditions which are
usually more than what that regular websites would offer. As a
result, inflexibility of the package may be experienced.
5. Forgiving A Host's Bad Or Limited Website Host that do not
develop their own informative sites are unlikely to spend time
developing informational site for your website.
6. Putting All The Eggs In One Basket Putting several sites in a
single account may seem like a good deal. This does not hold
true most of the time. When you site is income-generating, it
may not be wise to interconnect them. Chances are when all your
sites breakdown, your income will be lost. Try to work out with
your host about how to spread out the connection of your sites.
7. Taking Testimonials At Face Value Not all testimonials are
similar or true for customers. Ask the host if they have a
contact of their customers and if you can talk to them. If the
host does not want you to do this, that is a danger sign.
8. Not Keeping A Record Of Their Contact Information Keeping
track of telephone numbers, addresses, contact persons or e-mail
addresses is important. When a problem occurs in your site or
when the system goes down, you can easily talk to the customer
service to troubleshoot the problem for you.
9. Relying On Host Backups It is advisable to keep a back-up
copy of your website. This is critical in times of emergency.
10. Trusting your host to have the latest software Viruses and
computer hackers can strike anytime. It is always safe to check
the software versions that you are planning to purchase from
your host. Make sure that it is always updated.
