Disadvantages of Cheap Hosting (Sometimes Hidden)
When seeking hosting, the tendency is to go price shopping. In the hosting world, the cheapest price, is almost always not the best choice.
Hunting for a cheap web host means there has to be some compromise. A web hosting provider who competes on price has to cut something in the backend in order to accommodate you. For him to be profitable at a low price, he has to have many customers. The more he crams on that server, the more he will compromise the service that you get.
The following was curated from a post on Business 2 Community entitled: “What Wikipedia Can’t Tell You About Web Hosting.” We will highlight the Red Flags to look for and at the end, we will show you how Yahjam Host compares to each Red Flag.
Red Flags with Budget Hosting Companies
Here are a few things to look out for when going for cheap hosting. Some of these don’t necessarily make them bad choices, but they can impact your site performance.
Unnecessary Software Upgrades
Budget hosting companies often recommend premium software from affiliate partners that you probably don’t need.
If you see a good number of negative reviews citing excessive downtime, slow speeds, or outages, that’s a sure sign that the company has too many customers on an overloaded network.
If the hosting company does business with a lot of spammers, your site could suffer by being in an IP range that has been banned in multiple areas.
Limited MySQL Database Access
Any host that offers fewer than 100 tables will cause you issues down the line.
Some hosting companies offer deep discounts the first year then slam you with ridiculous rates going forward. Then if you try to cancel, they slap you with a huge cancelation fee. Do your homework and know what you’ll be paying long-term.
