Having relationship between a web hosting provider and his clients can be a beautiful thing. You have a great idea for a website and someone comes along who can bring that website to life. Unfortunately, it doesn’t always work out so beautifully. Sometimes, website customers and web hosting companies don’t see eye-to-eye. Here are the top 7 reasons why hosting customers and providers are at odds with each other.
1 – Bandwidth and Disk Space Issues
Make sure you have enough bandwidth and disk space for the kind of Internet venture you want to run. If you don’t and exceed your limits, your site may crash or you may be charged heavy fees by the web host or both. If it’s going to be close, get a more expensive plan with more bandwidth/disk space. It’ll save you money and tension with your web host provider in the long run.
2 – Support Issues
When your site is down, you panic. You don’t know what’s going on or why, and if your site is dependent on ecommerce, you’re losing money by the second. It’s critical at these times to be able to make contact with someone on the web host’s end who can tell you what’s going on. If your web hosts representative is nowhere to be found when the going gets tough, it can make for a very unhappy customer.
3 – Security Issues
Safety is paramount when it comes to your website, especially if you’re asking customers to provide sensitive information. If your host is leaking private data, or letting it get leaked, they aren’t a host you want to do business with.
4 – Fraudulent Billing Issues
Support issues can just be a matter of manpower, but billing issues are often a matter of unscrupulous business practices. Some web hosts may just try to steal from you, hoping you won’t notice the extra billing. If you discover you’re being overbilled more than once without a good explanation, it’s time to migrate to another server.
5 – Deceptive Billing Issues
This is the nasty cousin of the prior issue. Just like banks that offer low mortgage rates with balloon payments that pop up and bankrupt people, web hosts can make “impossibly low” offers that turn out to have a big catch, like they require a long term contract with most of the payments at a much higher rate. Shared server hosting can be had pretty cheaply, so don’t go crazy trying to save one or two more extra bucks and end up getting scammed.
6 – Reselling Issues
Be careful if you’re buying web hosting services from a reseller. They are not the owner of the server and if something goes wrong, that’s one more level of bureaucracy between you and getting your problem resolved.
7 – Account Issues
People often find that the plan they originally signed up for is not the one they really need. Even though you sign a contract with your web host, he should be able to accommodate adjustments if you need them. If he isn’t, you’ll be at odds, and should probably look elsewhere.
