Web Hosting Features To Look Out For.
In this current age and competitive web hosting space, it is ideal to see almost all the web hosting companies provide all the features you need. The most important features to look out for in every web hosting company are:
Speed: Go for SSD servers. They are much faster. Most times, you need to try before you can know. Also note that your website files, scripts, size, and pictures play an important role in the speed of your website. It is not always about the hosting server. Please contact us for more education on this.
Reliability: Like I usually say, you never know until you have tried. You can never know a server’s reliability or uptime until you have tried it.
Free SSL Certificates: These days, almost all web hosting companies in Ghana are giving out free SSL certificates – they have to. This is because security is a very important issue when it comes to websites. If a company does not provide one, and you are not ready to purchase your own SSL certificate, please look somewhere else. Find out what an SSL certificate is here.
Free Domain Names: You can always buy your domain name and add it to your web hosting package. Most companies now offer it for free; some for the first year only, others for life. This is not too necessary so long as you can afford the cost of one.
WordPress and Other Applications: All web hosting companies in Ghana have WordPress installers. I have tried most of them. Apart from that, they also have applications such as Joomla, Drupal, etc. Don’t spend an extra dime on buying a WordPress hosting when shared hosting accounts all have WordPress installers on them. Ovation Hall’s control panel has very secured and easy to use WordPress installers. So does Nakroteck.
The Control Panels used: There are two major control panel software for managing websites globally. These are the old and popular cPanel, and the new and mobile-friendly Plesk panel.
In Ghana, some of the best web hosting companies such as; Ovation Hall offers both as options that you can choose from, Nakroteck offers Plesk, Ultrahost offers cPanel, Dtech I heard recently was moving to Plesk.
Whichever one is easy for you to use, you can choose based on which company offers it — as to make your website designing job easy for you.
