9 Key Factors in Determining the Reliability of a Web Hosting Provider: Infographic

2 comments

UK web hosting company eUKhost has created an infographic that goes through nine of the main steps in evaluating whether or not a web host is reliable. Selecting a web host is a topic we don’t cover much here on the WHIR, but as hosting providers, it is important to convey to prospective clients that your service is not only reliable, but it will go beyond their expectations in terms of features and customer service.

With social media and news coverage of hosting and cloud outages, it is not very hard for potential customers to do some reconnaissance on their own. And while the infographic seems to emphasize SLAs as a factor in determining web host reliability, the number does not tell the whole story.

Take a look at some of the steps eUKhost suggests to help in evaluating the reliability of a hosting provider, and if you have any tips of your own, please share in the comments!

  2. I am a hosting service provider. My main market is WHT and Warrior forum and other active forums. But if get one sales from only 50 visits. that is really hard. When I start doing this. I though with a clean page and nice graphics site I could get 20 to 30 sales a day . and I can boost that with offers and offers. But things are not really easy to run this show. But I love this game. I will be to make my foot print here.
