SWINDON, England, September 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Finding the best web host for you
Locating the ideal web hosting company can be daunting, whether you're a multinational online retailer, a hobby business or an individual with a blog. How do you choose and what do you get?
At Swindon Web Solutions we're confident that we measure up against the competition - so confident that we're giving you the lowdown on how to identify the best web hosting company for you!
Web Hosting - value for money
Cheapest isn't always best. You need to consider what you need: bandwidth, disk space, support, domain name hosting, security, the risk of downtime, server reliability, shared or Virtual Private Server (VPS) as well as expertise in integral issues like logo design and social media. It's a lot to think about, isn't it? Don't worry - we're going to break it down for you.
Support and Customer Services - the hidden costs of poor web hosting
You need to know, swiftly and accurately, what systems are necessary to achieve your goals - so you need a server host who can help you define your needs and then work with you to meet them. At Swindon Web Solutions we provide everything you need to succeed under one roof, with customer support that's committed to you.
Storage and Bandwidth - success on the web
- Servers allocate space to different websites - your site is 'renting' a certain amount of space on their 'map'. It's not just about defining the amount of territory (in megabytes and gigabytes) that your website requires, it's also about bandwidth - which is like the width of a straw - the wider the straw the more data can be transferred through it. Good upload speed is essential if you're running e-commerce structures which means you need confidence you've got all the bandwidth you need, and aren't paying for more than you require. Simple! At Swindon Web Solutions we offer a range of packages, in straightforward price brackets, to allow you to decide what's best for you.
- Hosting guarantees are a measure of a hosting company's confidence in their services. Look out for such offers and read the small print to ensure their money back guarantee matches your service expectations.
Security - all a two way street for websites
- SSL certification helps boost the security of your site, giving confidence to your customers. As a leader in UK web hosting services, we offer a range of flexible SSL certification routes to ensure your customers are safe, without costing you a fortune.
- Data ends up somewhere - it's in a real device, in a real place, and its security is essential to your peace of mind, whether it's your family history blog or your corporate empire that's locked away. Look at the location of the data centre your host is using, and find out how secure that venue is. A UK location offers a high degree of security and at Swindon Web Solutions we've opted for a purpose-built, state-of-the-art data centre to give our customers ultimate certainty that their data is safe with us.
