What to look for in a website hosting company

If you are setting up a new business or you are looking for a new website hosting provider for your website, it’s important to choose a company that suits your business and can provide all of the website hosting services you require. Every website needs hosting and there are a wide variety of hosting options available. At Mark 2 Creative, we pride ourselves on personal and responsive website hosting, so we’ve put together some key things you need to consider when you are looking for website hosting services.

Website hosting security

Online security has never been more important, with more and more potential risks and online attacks becoming more sophisticated by the day. Website hosting companies should prioritise security, with extensive firewalls, monitoring and SSL certificates. It’s vital that your web hosting provider can keep your site secure and protect both you and your customers’ data.

Online support

Setting up websites can be complicated, so it’s important that your hosting company can provide you with quick and efficient support. If your website isn’t working, you’re having issues with loading times or your content isn’t accessible, you need to be able to call your hosting provider to get it sorted as soon as possible. Whether you’re a website novice or an experienced coder, there will always be times when you need some extra support with your site and your hosting provider should be able to help with this.

Quick loading speeds

Having a fast and responsive website is essential in an increasingly completive online marketplace. If your website won’t load or is too slow, it’s likely customers will look elsewhere or doubt your business’s credibility. Make sure your web hosting provider can offer a fast server, adequate memory and processing power so your website is always quickly accessible. The amount of bandwidth you need will change depending on the size of your site and how many visitors you get, so it’s important that your hosting provider can scale up your hosting when your site becomes more established.
