5 Points to Keep in Consideration While Choosing a Web Hosting Provider

Who never had a bad or wrong experience when it comes to web hosting services?

We’ve talked about why to use whois privacy; and, when it comes to choosing a good service I suggest you take into account the following information.

web hostingTo begin with, I recommend you never choose from the completely free options. Why? Well, due to the simple fact that since it is not a paid service, the company has no obligation when it comes to giving us some kind of guarantee. This basically means that your website could be interrupted without previous notice. On the other hand, you have the paid option, which should give us

The best way to know if the web host service that you’ve chosen is the appropriate one is by going online. Researching the internet, reading user’s reviews and asking your fellow bloggers about their personal experience.

Here are some important points to be taken into consideration when choosing a company.

  1. HD Usage: You should always check the space available in the HD server to store files. If your idea is to host a blog, a site, videos, e-commerce, etc. then you should definitely go for a paid hosting service and try to avoid the cheapest one.

    A cheap hosting plan will not provide you with the disk space needed. You should also be aware about technical features, such as: Bandwidth, Operating System, CPU Cores, RAM, etc.

  2. Data Usage: Data transfer is the amount of data to be transferred from one location to another.

    This takes place in the following cases: either by you uploading files, your visitors viewing and downloading files, and emails transported from the server to your computer. Remember that each time your website or blog is accessed, the data usage will be activated.

  3. Tech Support: This is one of the most important points to pay attention to. If your blog or website, for some unknown reason, goes offline, who and how will they solve your problem?

    Will you be able to talk to someone and fix it? Remember, customer service makes the difference! If anything should happen you will depend on the Tech support to solve your problem.

  4. Domain: How many domains can be hosted on one account? Depending on the plan you hire, you may have a limited amount.

    But, it is quite often for your host to allow you to host an unlimited amount of domains. This is very useful for those who have numerous projects and will make you save up.

  5. Reviews: The best way to have a better outlook about a company’s service is reviewing. So don’t be afraid to search on the internet about a specific web hosting company.

    You will undoubtedly get the information that you are looking for.

Now that I have given you some tips on what to bear in mind at the moment of choosing a web hosting service, I hope that you are able to find one that suits your needs and allows you to deliver a high quality service for your readers.

Keep in mind that a good service is synonymous of a high speed server.

Downloading time is always an important matter for users, no one likes to wait, right?

Remember that a good host can and will define your success in the web.

What is Whois Privacy and Why Should/Shouldn’t To Use It?

whoisWhois is a protocol used to know who is the owner of a domain name, an IP address and its details and information. This means that when a domain name is registered, your personal information is associated with the domain name including name, address, phone number and email address and this data is available to the public.

It is no secret that many people who register a domain name do not want their personal information to be public. But, this is not as simple as it sounds. The ICANN requires for all domains to contain the owner’s personal information and for it to appear in Whois database.

This allows any random person to have access to such information, which can be used wrongly, such as for spam mailing, identity theft, etc. This doesn’t mean that a domain registrant cannot maintain his privacy secure. How? Well, it’s simple! By hiring WHOIS PRIVACY.

How does WHOIS Privacy work?

Whois offers a solution that meets the ICANN requirements. This identity protection service hides the owner’s personal and contact information.

To do so a dynamic web mail redirection system is used. This system creates an aleatory email address using the domain name. Every email sent to this aleatory address will be resent to the owner’s real email account. Whois Privacy is free of charge upon hiring the domain. There are two types you can choose from:


  • Whois Privacy: You can hire this option from 1 to 10 years. It includes dynamic web mail redirection system and allows for all the domains information, except for the owner’s name, to be hidden. This option is only available for certain domain types:  .com, .net, .org, .info, .biz, .ws, .mobi, .cat, .tv, .cc, .es, .com.es, .nom.es, .org.es


  • Whois Privacy Complete:  Just like the first option, you may hire this from 1 to 10 years. It also includes dynamic web mail redirection system and ALL domain and owner’s information is kept anonymous. This is available for the following domain types:  .com, .net, .org, .info, .biz, .ws, .mobi, .tv y .cc

It is possible to activate and deactivate this service at any time. For example you can activate it to show the domains authorship in a specific moment.

Another benefit of using Whois Private is that it can be used to protect a certain brand or project. Many people like to take credit for a specific project, they like to show who the brains behind it all is, but others enjoy to stay inconspicuous while online.

So, in simple words, Whois Privacy is basically used to hide your personal information from public view.
