Anyone looking for a web hosting provider should at least think roughly in advance about what they intend to do with the web space. Would you like to run only one website on the web space? Or are you planning to have multiple websites so that you need multiple domains? Should only a static business card be stored on the hosting package, or do you rely on a modern CMS such as web hosting south Africa, Joomla or Drupal, which places higher minimum requirements on the server? In addition to these basic things, there are a number of points that customers should consider when comparing web hosting, so that they get the best hosting package for their money. The most important things include:
Does the hosting package allow the use of scripts? Many current web applications, such as WordPress, will not run without the PHP script. Other scripts such as Perl, Ruby, Python are required less often and are usually only offered in the higher quality packages.
Does the number of databases match your project? For example, if you want to run two websites on one hosting package, you should look out for a package with at least two inclusive databases. Even if individual services such as an additional database can be booked separately, the costs are often disproportionately high.
Does the hosting provider offer free automatic backups? This is a great advantage, because it ensures that in the event of an emergency you can always quickly and easily return to an old (and working) version of the website. Of course, backups can also be made manually using an FTP program such as Filezilla. In practice, however, this is often forgotten. And if the homepage is destroyed through your own fault or a hacker attack, the work of several days is quickly destroyed.
is the customer service available? Many inexpensive providers save on support. For example, they do not offer a hotline or can only be reached during normal office hours. If your homepage goes down on a Friday evening, you can lose sales for several days.
Web hosts from abroad often offer cheaper tariffs than companies from Germany. Make sure, however, that the server is located in Germany. If the server is abroad, this has a negative effect on the loading speed of your page – at least if your customers or readers come from Germany.
