Always Remember These Tips When Looking for Web Hosting. Kenya

Avoid free hosting companies

Most people hosting their companies for the first time go for the cheapest hosting plans in the market. Others go for free hosting plans. While the free plans are great as they allow you to host your site without paying anything, you should avoid them as they cause more harm than good.

Most of these companies will host your site for free, but place adverts on your site. Some of these adverts lower the loading speed of your site. Others make it difficult for users to see your content.

Since the companies are offering a free service, most of them don't have a dedicated support team to help you in times of problem. This means that your site can be down for even days, which is suicidal for your online business.

Take your time

Before you host your site take time to go through the different sites and see the plans that they offer. Also take time to read reviews left by prior customers. If a company has many negative reviews, it's probably not right for you.

Go for a hosting service with cPanel

cPanel allows you to easily add applications to your site. The applications not only make it easy for users to use your site, they also make it easy for you to manage the site.

Be cautious of expensive web hosting

There is a common notion that the most expensive product is the best. While this might be true in many areas, it's not the case with web hosting. Studies show that most expensive plans only offer you more bandwidth. This means that if your site doesn't attract a lot of traffic you won't be using the extra bandwidth even if you will be paying for it.

If your site is new, go for cheap hosting services. In addition to being affordable, these service providers have been shown to offer the best customer support.
