4 Critical Factors When Looking for A Website Hosting Reseller

by Dean Iggo

It is very difficult to find the right website hosting reseller with all the hundreds of hosting plans and providers on the market. A good place to start is ask business associates or friends who use website hosting resellers and see if they are happy with the ones they have. There are also opinion sites, such as CNET and Epinions, which can show the best and most affordable website hosting resellers that you can buy.

Things to focus on

Once you have found a few options for a website hosting reseller there are some things you can focus on to make sure they are right for you.

#1 Price

Is the website hosting reseller affordable? Are they just cheap, can you get a discount when signing up? There are many factors when determining price. Do not just go with the cheapest one, as they might not have the amount of space you need or they may break down often. Also many have a money back guarantee for 30 days if you are not satisfied.

#2 Storage space

This is the amount of room that you will have on your website. If you are looking into an affordable website hosting reseller make sure it at least has enough space for your site.

#3 Data Transfer / Bandwidth

The data transfer, or bandwidth usage refers to how much data is received or sent from your hosting account on the server for a specific period of time. This is generally measured every month. The more visitors that come to your site the more bandwidth you will have to have.

#4 Site Speed

Site speed is a very important factor when choosing a website hosting reseller. It will determine how fast your site will load and when visitors come to your site. When people surf they are generally busy and therefore you need a fast server. Or the surfer will leave your site before it loads.

These are just some of the things to look for when choosing a website hosting reseller. See if they have good quality services and are affordable being within your price range.
