From any point of the globe, at any time, anyone can request your website.
Your web hosting should fulfill that request repeatedly and consistently. Notice that “quickly” or “immediately” were not the words we selected. Speed is important to a website, and a server is expected to deliver a website in seconds, but consistency is an even more important factor when selecting a host.
Every server experiences an interruption of service at one time or another, whether in the course of routine maintenance, or hardware issues, or a security breach. The support response is where consistency is the most important feature. How soon support teams respond, when notices and alerts are posted, what interim steps are taken … these are substantial factors in returning a website back to live broadcast.
Then there’s economy. How consistent are prices, what notice is provided if an increase will occur, does the services consistently equal or outweigh the costs. And the upgrade path – billing should accurately pro-rate the remainder of one level of hosting in order to apply appropriate credit to the upgraded level.
There are many more facets that can be considered when selecting web hosting service, and after experiencing many such services Data49 has chosen to work with UserTutor Hosting & Domains. The consistency that we look for is the consistency they also value. Our clients host in many locations and their choice of host is who we will work with in developing their online presence. But for our use, and who we recommend, it’s UserTutor Hosting & Domains.
