How much is your Web Hosting Actually Costing You?
It is common knowledge that many providers offer website hosting for as low as $1 a month. However, is that all your web hosting costing your business? Maybe not. Cheap web hosting is costing your business a lot more than $1 because you are losing your website visitors. According to Google if your website takes longer than five seconds to load, you are most likely to lose visitors because no one like to wait.
Stop! Before you try to open your website on your computer, of course, it will open in a second. Because your website has a copy stored in your computer memory, and it is not loading from the internet. Try it after clearing your internet history, and you will notice slow loading speed.
Shared Web Hosting
Most businesses begin with purchasing low cost shared hosting for their website and don’t pay much attention. The hosting industry is fighting and undercutting each other by offering cheap shared hosting. However, it is not possible to deliver excellent hosting service while making money and cutting cost. To win the price race and attract more customers hosting providers are overselling their server resources. They are hosting more websites than what their server can handle. By overselling, they are compromising on the performance of their hosting platform.
Does this mean Shared web hosting is not suitable for your Business?
Definitely not. As a matter of fact, most businesses only need a shared hosting and don’t need VPS or dedicated server. However, it is crucial to choose the right hosting provider that offer good performance. Price should not be the only decisive factor, you should check the performance and security of hosting service. In this article, we highlight some of the issues with low-cost hosting, and how we tackle those issues to deliver fast and secure cloud web hosting.
Over occupant, the hosting server is running more than what it can handle. It’s like a shared accommodation with too many people. If you are one of the tenants, you may get lucky for a few hours in a day when other tenants are out. However, when everyone is back, the place will be crowded with no room to move. Like this, there may be a time when your website response is fast and reasonable. However, when all hosted sites are busy at the same time, the over occupancy will make them all slow.
Bugs & Memory leaks
No matter how perfect your website is? If one of the other sites on the server has a bug or memory issue, it will consume resources on the server and impact your website. Unless proper tools and countermeasure are in place to protect your website.
Malware & Viruses
Like in our example of share accommodation, if one tenant catches the flue, all other tenants are susceptible to get sick. Low cost shared web hosting is dangerous for your website and a perfect playground for hackers. Your website is at risk of cross-contamination unless your hosting provider is using a paid operating system like cloud Linux to protect your account. Most low-cost hosting providers don’t use Cloud Linux to cut down on their cost.
Server Management and Backups
All IT systems are prone to fail even if the perfect ones. Low-cost hosting providers do not provide a complete solution for your website. Cheap hosting providers don’t care about business continuity and disaster recovery, and it can cost your business in a big way. Failing to plan is planning to fail. When the disaster strike, it is not a time to prepare, it’s time to response. Low-cost hosting will leave you in limbo, and make you deal with the mess.
