Choosing a web hosting service can be tricky more especially if one is a newbie. But if you take into consideration these 9 factors, you will be able to go with the best service,which will allow you gurantee your online presense.

If you consider your current hosting provider as the right one for your website needs and requirements, you might want to look at a few things whilst comparing them with what others offer. This will help you make a conclusing on whether you should stay or migrate and choose the right web hosting service depending on your CMS.

If you have done the above, I guess you know what I am trying to refer to but for those who haven’t thought of or even doing any of the above mentioned, then you are the very right one to keep reading this post. Very soon, you will come to discover whether your current hosting provider is the right one for you and or if its high time you though of migrating to another service.

Mind you, this article is derived from my personal experience after hackers did whatever they did, which resulted into Thekonsulthub.com being taken off the internet for about 3 hours not until everything was sorted out, and a credit I give to my current host.

When choosing the right hosting provider, many people tend to only look at the cost, the service up-time and who they have chosen, and which to me looks to be just part other than being overall. If for example you want specifically WordPress hosting, go for one dedicated to that, and Drupal for Drupal’s best.

  • Free SSL certificate
  • Uptime

There are so many reasons why you need a right host(s) and one of them is during the hardship times, for example when your website is hacked, just like I did happen to me as I explained above. When I noticed  that no one had visited my site for a 2 hours periods, I begun to think that may be something had happened and which was the fact.

My website had been put due to the fact that a hacker had added his own index in my themes and thus part of my site redirecting to a phishing site, a thing I discovered from the mail my host sent me after they had worked on everything and my website was up and running again.

Assuming I never had a trusted hosting provider, may be till now my site would have been off still since I am not a professional programmer. The next time you think about who to how to choose a web hosting service, take into accout these 9 factors.
