It’s Time to Move On: 5 Signs that Your Hosting Provider is Not the One for You

Some relationships reach a point wherein things start to slow down. Maybe one person becomes less responsive, and the other ends up not feeling safe or secure in the relationship anymore. When it reaches that point, sadly, sometimes it’s better to accept the situation and move on to better things.

This same situation can happen with your website hosting provider. If you feel like things aren’t where they’re supposed to be, maybe it’s time to get up and get moving. But what exactly are the signs you should look out for in order to say, “Yup, it’s time to move on”? Here are 5 simple reasons for you to consider:

At a Snail’s Pace

Slow speed means lost revenues. Think of all the visitors and potential customers you could have converted, but have bounced away because of your site’s slow speed. Ideally, your website should load within 2-3 seconds. Anything more than that could drive your users to leave your site. If that’s the case, then it’s time to change your hosting plan or provider. Google hates slow speed too! The company has been known to devalue slow loading sites.

Can’t Keep Up with Traffic Spikes

As your business grows, you want your hosting provider to grow with you as well. When there is a spike in traffic on your website, is your hosting provider able to expand your capacity automatically? A good hosting provider should be able to anticipate your site activities and recommend a plan that best suits your requirements to avoid unforeseen issues that could cost you additional expenses.

Frequent Downtime

No website should experience unexpected and repetitive downtime. While there are no hosting providers that can guarantee a 100% uptime, you should expect at least a 99.9% uptime. If you’re getting less than that, then it’s definitely time for a change.

Inadequate Security

The #1 question to ask is: What can your hosting provider do to keep your website safe? No website owner wants their site to get hacked – files missing, corrupted, and moved around – especially for companies that handle sensitive information. A great hosting provider should be able to offer you and your customers strict security measures and strategies.

Unresponsive Tech Support

As much as we try to avoid it, things can still go wrong at any time. And when it does, your hosting provider’s support team should be on top of everything. A support team is crucial for site owners who have limited experience in solving technical issues. Your web hosting’s support team should be able to help you solve any issue, be responsive to all your queries, and be able to properly monitor all activities related to your hosting plan, 24/7.

There are a lot of hosting providers whose services you can get for cheap. But sometimes, lowered prices means the quality of the service is compromised. Rather than opt for the cheapest service, consider partnering with a hosting provider that will address all your needs and protect your online assets.
