Default What Makes A Good Web Hosting Provider For Small Business?

Starting a website isn’t quite as simple as people make it out to be, especially if you need that website to serve a business purpose. The website not only needs to look good but it also needs to load fast reliably. Having a great looking website hosted on a server that goes down several times a month does no good to the business. That is why it is crucial to find a good web hosting provider. Here are the things you need to ensure a web host has before you consider signing up with them.

Uptime of at least 99%

99% may seem like a lot, but it equates to about seven hours of downtime per month. So, it’s the least you should be looking for; any lower than that is a waste of your time. Ideally, you’ll want to find web hosts that can guarantee an uptime of somewhere closer to 99.6-99.9%! This equates to roughly two hours to forty-five minutes of total downtime per month. Most websites you visit probably use a host that guarantees 99.9% uptime.

What would you define as a "good price?" And at what point does low cost trump the quality of services by the hosting company?
