Choosing The Best Web Hosting Provider For Your Business Website
Your website design looking amazing and is easy to use. Your content is regularly updated and relevant.Nothing else to consider, right? Not so fast. Although you need your website design to be on point, you also need to remember the importance of choosing the right web host. Don’t just sign up to the first host you come across – a good web host can make all the difference to your website so take some time to consider your decision.
For the low down on web hosting, Perth based Dilate Digital know what we’re talking about. Today, we’ll be taking a look at how you can choose the best provider for your website.
One of the most important factors you need to consider with your web hosting provider is the speed they can offer your website. It’s no good signing up to a host only to find that they don’t provide reliable speed. Check the potential host’s website uptime and make sure that your website will run reliably 24/7.
User friendly control panel
You don’t need the hassle of being given access to a hosting control panel which just isn’t user friendly. Your control panel should be easy to use so you can access the data you need without the hassle. If you’re finding the hosting control panel too complicated, even after getting some guidance from the host, it might be more trouble than it’s worth.
This is important. ALWAYS make sure that your web host runs regular backups for you. Some companies will leave the back up to you but when you run a busy business, this is the last thing you want to be thinking about. Ideally, you want your host to run daily backups so if anything goes wrong, the impact is limited.
Before going ahead with a particular web host, always get specific information about security measures they have in place. Look for information around firewalls and other protection against cyber-attacks, along with anti-virus and anti-malware protection. Ask how often audits are undertaken so you’re confident that your host is regularly updating their best practice procedures to ensure security.
This is a no brainer – always choose a web host who provides technical support. You don’t want to sign up up for web hosting at a too-good-to-be-true price only to find that there is no support available if you get stuck. Look for a web host who not only provides documentation which explains important information but who is able to offer email, phone or live chat support if there is an issue.

Director Bodie is just absolutely fantastic - he was completely honest with me and could have easily taken several thousand dollars off me, but he advised my business was too small for a company like Dilate, and gave me loads of brutally honest feedback that I have actioned immediately on my site. I wish I wasn't a "DNQ lead - Too Small" but hey- And perhaps one day I'll grow up to be a real player like Dilate - but for now, here's some good karma for you.Lawrence Hobart
