Five Red Flags to Look for When Choosing a Hosting Company


5 Red Flags to Look For When Choosing a Hosting Company
Imagine you’re planning to open a physical storefront, and you are looking at a few different malls:

  • Your first choice is a location that’s well-maintained, with an owner who’s well put-together and polite. The mall is clean, well-lit, and with excellent security. The trade-off is that the rent is a little high — nothing you can not afford, but enough to put a dent in your budget. That said, the lease is month-to-month.
  • Your second choice looks as well-maintained as the first, but there’s something a bit off about your landlord. They are dodgy when you ask questions about specifics such as security and maintenance, and seem interested in little save rushing you along to sign the lease.
  • Your last choice is not especially impressive — it is dirty and poorly maintained, and located in a bad neighborhood. The owner seems nice enough. It is also quite cheap.

Given the choice, most of you would probably go with option one, right? It is better-maintained, the owner is reputable, and there are not likely to be any nasty surprises waiting for you after you sign the lease, which does not require a huge commitment. The same logic can be applied to searching for a hosting company. Continue reading “Five Red Flags to Look for When Choosing a Hosting Company”
