Small Business Web Hosting: How To Choose

webhosting If you are a small business owner, you're probably very aware of how much having a good web presence can boost your business. To find and keep customers, you need a good reliable web presence.

However, you can't have a reliable web presence if you don't have reliable web hosting. Most shared hosting providers host personal, not business, sites, so you might not get the best service.

By checking with other customers of a hosting company, you can determine their level of support. You will probably have to pay more, but its hard to put a price on reliability and solid support.

Another thing you need to be considering is the type of hosting you want to get. Shared hosts are popular but not often the best choice for businesses. It is slower and less reliable than some of the other options.


If you're a small business looking to grow, check out VPS, or virtual private hosting. With a VPS, you are leasing rights to a virtual machine that runs on a cluster of computers.

The upshot of this is that you can upgrade your hosting instantly by paying for a higher level package. The VM is upgraded instantly, making this perfect for small business.

If you're looking for the ultimate in performance and reliability, though, a dedicated server is what you'll want. Dedicated web hosting is a big market. With these, you have your own computer acting as a server. However, upgrading is hard since you'll typically have to migrate your site to an all new machine. This makes things harder than you want. Still, these are the fastest and most reliable hosting options.

Overall, the most important thing to get right when choosing web hosting for small business is the support. Everything else is just details, but they are still worth considering. Good luck in your search for a great web host.
