Advice on choosing a Web Hosting Provider

Picking a good hosting provider boils down to three S's:


And for possible good measure SCALE may be another S to consider…

If you're a small business getting started, you can probably do quite well with a cloud, virtual private server, or managed service with prices £8 to £80 per month.

Here's a look at what experts recommend you consider when choosing a hosting provider…

Decide how much hand-holding you'll need. Basic customer service provides access to email, ticket and phone support. Some service providers even offer 24-hour phone support. The limiting factor to non-managed service is that while a vendor may answer questions about basic configuration, it won't be your systems manager.

If you want to delegate the management of your site completely, then you want to consider the Maidstone Web Services managed service. We will make sure your system is configured properly for your load, keep an eye on security issues, patch your software as needed and manage backups among other tasks.

Also try and estimate the amount of traffic you expect. Hosting providers generally charge based on storage and bandwidth usage. Bandwidth is a measure of how many bytes you serve over a given period. If you expect only a few people to visit your site, bandwidth will be low. But if you're suddenly featured at the top of Google or your product goes viral you can expect bandwidth requirements to surge. Maidstone Web Services can grow with you, we can identify bandwidth utilisation and keep your costs down to keep your profits up.

The very cheapest hosting is available on shared servers, where one box may run hundreds of websites. The performance of your site depends on the load all the other sites are putting on the host. Shared hosting also limits your access to the server's capabilities, generally limiting you to uploading files via FTP or SFTP, preventing shell access, restricting what programs you can run on the service and limiting the amount of database access your site can perform.

Maidstone Web Services are the next tier up which is VPS (for virtual private server), which is a full instance of a virtual machine (a simulated computer) running on a box. Performance is always better than base-level shared services.

Our AWS Cloud servers are the better choice. We can build whatever configuration suits the needs of our customers. The big benefit of our servers is that you can scale seamlessly. If you need to be able to handle that big traffic surge, you can be moved up to the next tier. Prices start at £15.98 per month.
