Hello all , i am basic here to ask what would you look for in a webhosting package ?
i am new seller on seo clerks and have made a service for my webhosting and selling resellers hosting .
i offer basics or any web host , with few extras .. im happy to give a free trail to show it work and uptime etc
just failing to see why its not being bought .. i see a lot of views and people opening it etc
thanks for any replies in advance
They're looking for a host that probably won't go out of business in the next few months or years. On top of that, they want a good bargain for the money spent. Finally, they want decent or great customer service.
Note, what is defined as a bargain depends on what they want. For instance, they might want shared, VPS, or dedicated hosting.
Are you sure you want to delete this post?
Thanks so much for your input
I would look for a long-standing host that provides excellent customer service and support. Also a webhost that the big websites already use as part of what would convince me.
I been going for 5 years dont intend on stopping i currently have 51 customers and uptime is 99.8
i offer free support 24.7
and also free migration etc
that ks for your replys im pretty much all of what you say .. so I'm excited about gaining new customers
Are you in London?
And more importantly, are your servers in london?
The reason I ask is that I'm from London myself but I use an American hosting company because their servers are in America which gives increased speed to American visitors to my website, which is where my customer base is.
The london branding may be holding you back in regards to getting non English based businesses.
we have English and American Server .. i understand your frustration i was with a host 5 years ago that was based in india and i am in london south east
What I look for in hosting is customer support speed and uptime. Even though a host has customer support but response time is slow, I won't approve of that hosting. Also I look into the uptime, uptime is very crucial to my business, so I won't want an host that would give any reason for failure to the business. Lastly, online reputation matters a lot, hosts should try as much as possible to protect their online reputation.
Harrysung i agree totally i believe i am all of thee above ( working on the reputation)
I personally look for two things - RAM and the Bandwidth. In can adjust with the space. But RAM is very important for the web server performance. And the bandwidth is something nobody can negotiate with. So it all comes down to what we can use. So cost is another last factor I put into practice. So cost, space, bandwidth are some things that one needs to look out for there as well.
100% i have made all my plans flexible with the option of cheap upgrade if need
I would look for these points
But i will check carefully reviews about a provider if i decide to go with their services.
Thanks for your input.. since this thread i have done some updates and more promotion.
uptime has been excellent
so im looking to do well this this i hope
Thanks for all inputs
Yeah, when people buy web hosting, two of the main things people care about are uptime and support. They want to know that the web host they are with wont go out of business in a couple months time and will support them no matter how small or trivial or how hard the question is that you ask them. For example, I was with a bad host once and when I asked about something that I couldn't change (it was to do with the Apache file) they basically told me that I needed to upgrade my plan to pay for support on that level but I only had one small site and didn't need everything that plan offered. Where as my current host now, no matter how small or trivial the question or issue is I'm having, they are on it like white on rice and that makes me very loyal to them. That and a great service all round and good uptime and reliability!
Thanks so much, totally agree i have been doing this 5 years now just struggle with finding new customers, most the customers i have i have designed there site and host them, i have about 10 customers who found me on google ..
Just trying to build the list up .. im even doing join and get 1 month free as a promotional offer
hopefully this will work
Here are some of the things that I look in a hosting provider:
Pricing: I want my hosting to be very affordable. Currently, I am paying $78 per year to host 10 websites
support: The hosting provider should have good support system. My hosting has amazing support. I get answer within 10 minutes 24 X 7
Reputation: I will not go with any Tom Dick and Harry. I want my hosting to be well known.
Problem is sir, i do exactly what your look for in a host but im not well known like godaddy .. my prices are great £12 year for the min package
my support team reply with in 1 min on live chat , and 5-10mins on a support ticket ..
Reputation is what i need to build ..
Thanks vinaya for your input
Thanks Everyone for the input .... Means a Lot
I already have a list of my requirements when it comes to the need for web hosting. The first item in the list is a reputable company, the bigger the company, the bigger trust that I can give it. Owners of small websites always look at the cost but they should also evaluate the capability of the hosting company for the continuity of service. What if I buy a package today and tomorrow that small hosting provider is gone?
