How to find the best hosting Colombia provider

Posted by johnssmith00 on September 10th, 2013

If you’ve decided to start an online business in a Colombian market then you’re probably going to use a hosting Colombia company. Choosing amongst a multitude of companies can be hard, especially so if you’re looking at hosting Colombia services, but don’t get discouraged. There are several telltale signs of a good, responsible hosting company, and if you remember them while looking for a provider, odds are you will find a good one. One of the good indicators if a hosting Colombia company is good for you is the website. There’s a saying that a website is like the business card of the company, but in reality it’s much, much more.

A high-quality, intuitive and good-looking website means that the company at least has enough revenue to hire qualified web designers, and while it doesn’t necessarily extend to all of the company’s services, chances are that a hosting provider with a good website renders better services than the one with a hard to navigate, buggy web page. This is true not only for hosting Colombia providers, but for every hosting provider out there. The content of the website should be clear and grammatically correct. You don’t have to sift through pages after pages of badly written content to find the hosting plans the company offers. Look at these plans carefully.

If you weren’t haphazard about your starting your online business, you should already know which plan to use. Either way, it might be a good idea to contact the hosting Colombiacompany in question, describe your situation and your needs, and see what they offer. If they’re obviously pushing you the most expensive solution they have to offer, it might not be a good idea to use the company’s services. If, however, the company’s representative offers you a plan that is more tailored to your needs, then the chances are that using the company’s services would be a good decision.

But these are just the surface things. There are many other variables which factor in which hosting Colombia provider is best for you goals. One of the most important is the quality of tech support. If you don’t have a dedicated tech specialist on a payroll, you will have a lot of problems when your site crashes. That’s when the quality of tech support comes in, and even if you have a very good knowledge of computers, you will probably have to work with a tech support specialist to bring the site back online. This is where many lower range providers fail to deliver quality service, and as you struggle to get your site back online, you’ll quickly find yourself losing both money and patience.

Another important thing to look for when choosing your provider is uptime. It’s important because it’s the time your website will be down. When the provider claims his uptime is 99,999%, it doesn’t mean he’s being pedantic. There’s a difference between an uptime of 99,999% and 99,9%. The first number means approximately five minutes of downtime a year, while the second is not minutes, but hours of downtime. Almost nine hours, that is.

If you’re looking for a good hosting Colombia company, it’s important to find the right hosting provider.
