A web hosting is a place where you can host your website and store your files of the website by allocating their webspace.

In order to get your website live on the internet, you required web hosting, that’s why every website you see is hosted under a web server.

It’s straightforward to know ‘how the web hosting works’. The hosting provider gives you web space for storing your website’s file.

The website is hosted on a local computer through which your files are uploaded onto a web server and this webserver always gives responses according to the request made.

For example, If I asked a query ‘how to choose the best hosting provider for WordPress’ on the Internet through a web browser the request made by me will be sent to the web server, and the webserver will provide me the different results as per the request made.

Shared hosting is a type of hosting under which people share the resources (RAM, CPU, Bandwidth, Web Space) with more than one person on a local computer. It’s like if the total resources are 100 then it is partly divided into 10 so that on a single web server more than one person runs their site on a small-scale basis.

The only reason that this is the most preferred web hosting package for beginners, they can host their website on the webserver within a small investment.

Buy a Domain

buy a domain, How to choose the best web hosting provider [5 Expert tips]

Web hosting is the combination of Domain and hosting i.e if we combine hosting and domain it will be termed as web hosting.

domain is generally an identity of your blog website, whenever you start a blog you required a domain name i.e the name of your website, for example, makebloggingeasy.comamazon.com, shoutmeloud.com.

Now a key factor comes here ‘How to find a domain?’

It mainly depends on you that what name should you choose for your blog website, whether askme.com, poweryoga.in, it’s up to you.

But here is the main question arises, whenever you start a blog, decide first, do you want to target an audience from the whole world or a specific region.

If you target whole world you must use gTLD domain or if a specific country then use ccTLD domain.

Basically there are two types of domain which is mostly famous;

  • gTLD– It stands for Generic top-level Domain, which is basically used to target a large group of audiences throughout the world. Few examples are;
    • .com: A top-level domain that is widely used for commercial purposes,
    • .org: A top-level domain that widely used for big organizations like; unicef.org,
    • .net: A top-level domain that widely used for big organizations involved in networking.
  • ccTLD– It stands for Country-code top-level Domain, which is basically used to target a specific group of the audience i.e a particular country.
    • .in: a Country-code top-level Domain for targeting India.
    • .au: a Country-code top-level Domain for targeting Australia.

Tips to choose the best domain name;

  • Must use gTLD domain like .com, .org
  • use a keyword on your domain related to your niche like blogginghub.com, techmantra.org
  • Choose a domain name which could be easily recognized
  • Keep your domain name short which could be easily pronounced and spell
  • Avoid using hyphen
  • Use a domain name generator to get better suggestions of a domain related to your niche

Efficient Performance

efficient performance, How to choose the best web hosting provider [5 Expert tips], 5 experts tips to choose web hosting, 5 experts tips to choose web hosting provider

Hosting performance is a secret sauce of all the best hosting providers. If something which is not efficiently works are not considered good enough. Same in case of hosting, if it doesn’t perform well it won’t be considered as good hosting.

The web server and hosting technology matters a lot to the hosting provider because experts recommend powerful hosting, and having a good server and hosting technology will be a breakthrough.

The parameter you must look at before buying a good web hosting in terms of performance;

efficient performance, How to choose the best web hosting provider [5 Expert tips], 5 experts tips to choose web hosting, 5 experts tips to choose web hosting provider, parameters to remember before buying a hosting service
  • Server speed: According to google and many experts have a hosting server speed of around 200-350ms counts as a good server speed and less than that is better. The server speed determines the speed of your website.
  • Uptime: The amount of time in a given period a server stays up and running, i.e for how much amount of time does a server running at a particular period of time. The recommended uptime by the experts is above 99%
  • CDN (Content Delivery Network): CDN makes your website faster by caching its content and distributing it to the different data centers, and whenever foreign visitors come to your site, the CDN will provide your content faster from the closest data center to them. It may happen hosting provider doesn’t provide free CDN, in this case, you may integrate free CDN via. Cloudflare at free of cost.

This is how CDN works;

how cdn works, efficient performance, How to choose the best web hosting provider [5 Expert tips], 5 experts tips to choose web hosting, 5 experts tips to choose web hosting provider, parameters to remember before buying a hosting service
Fig: 2

By using these three parameters you can easily analyze the performance of every hosting provider.

CDN is a very important feature because it may happen that the server speed of the hosting provider would be slow because every provider has a limited number of server locations across the world but if they provide free CDN it will be easy for you to boost your website speed, in case they don’t provide CDN, you can use this feature manually.

Uptime is also to be considered as an important aspect of good performing hosting because if your website gets down multiple times a month or year you would lose many visitors coming to your site.

So always take a look on the performance of the various hosting provider before buying the best one.

Adequate Webspace and Bandwidth

Adequate Webspace and Bandwidth, How to choose the best web hosting provider [5 Expert tips], 5 experts tips to choose web hosting, 5 experts tips to choose web hosting provider

Web space and bandwidth are the core of your hosting service;

  • Webspace – It is the amount of storage that the hosting provider access to you to store your files and folders of your website.
  • Bandwidth – It refers to the amount of data you are allowed to transfer from one point to another from your webserver.

The above two are the most valuable resources of your hosting service.

Webspace gives you the access to use the storage to store all your files and folders of your website, so if your website is running heavy operation it required a large amount of Webspace.

Generally, a blog website doesn’t require huge storage it will be enough for the users to do all their operations within 10-20 GB of space.

On the other hand, bandwidth is super important for your website because it decides how much amount of data you can transfer from your web server.

Bandwidth is generally calculated based on the file size and amount of visitors to your site, you would find many bandwidth calculators on the web.

Generally, beginners don’t require unlimited bandwidth because the website would be new and it may not get tons of traffic on the first day. So data transfer limit of up to 100 GB would be enough.

Secondly, if you feel that limited bandwidth would be a risking factor then you may choose those package which has unlimited bandwidth or you can integrate your website with CDN (Content Delivery Network) which gives you access to unlimited bandwidth for data transfer.

Easy to use control panel

easy to use control panel, How to choose the best web hosting provider [5 Expert tips], 5 experts tips to choose web hosting, 5 experts tips to choose web hosting provider

A Control panel is a component that helps you to control all your settings from its backend. Just like WordPress Dashboard which acts as a control panel of a website, similarly for having all the access of your hosting service it has a control panel of it.

Most widely popular hosting providers use c panel (control panels) like SiteGround, HostGator, etc, but there are many popular hosting control panels is there, which you can use.

C panel and H panel are the most widely used control panel of hosting.

hpanel, How to choose the best web hosting provider [5 Expert tips], 5 experts tips to choose web hosting, 5 experts tips to choose web hosting provider
h-panel
cpanel, How to choose the best web hosting provider [5 Expert tips], 5 experts tips to choose web hosting, 5 experts tips to choose web hosting provider
c-panel

The one thing which I say that two of the control panels are very easy to use, as I have accessed both the control panels I’m sure you would never get any sort of problem while using it.

H panel is separately made for hostinger users, and I’m also its user that’s why I say their control panel is easy to use because it is simple than the c panel.

So I think there must be no sort of doubt here. As I have used both the control panel that’s why I’m recommending only those hosting which has c panel or h panel.

Advanced customer support

Advanced customer support, How to choose the best web hosting provider [5 Expert tips], 5 experts tips to choose web hosting, 5 experts tips to choose web hosting provider

Customer support is the post-sales activity performs by every company. As per my experience, I would never recommend a hosting service that has poor customer support.

Strong customer support is important because beginners always get some sort of problem while using a hosting service, so having a good and loyal customer support system is important for its users.

In this highly advanced technology, anything could happen within a second. Similarly hosting is such a part of the internet that many companies are relying on their web servers, that’s why having very strong customer support is very essential.

Customer support of hosting providers is really important so that it can solve your problem as quickly as possible. Hosting companies like hostinger have very strong customer support which gives the response of your query within 1-2 hours which I have experienced till now.

One thing which I emphasize that, don’t go with hosting service whose customer service is very poor in terms of their response time.

According to data, the average response time of the customer support team is 12 hours and 10 minutes, Bluehost, Hostinger, etc. has a strong customer support system and their response time is less than 8 hours.

Whenever you buy a hosting service make sure their customer support must for 24×7 with must-have email support which is more reliable.
