Make Your Hosting Decision Easier With 3goHost

Lose your worries and let us guide you as you decide which company to host your website with. Choosing a host is actually easy, but if you've never done it before, it can be a little intimidating. As you click through 3goHost, you'll encounter seemingly dozens of acronyms that are used that mean nothing to most people, such as PHP or MySQL. Or ASP, FTP and POP3/IMAP. And then there are those funny names like Joomla, Ruby on Rails, Python, Drupal, Apache and Linux. The short answer is that yes, each of them do mean something, but probably not much to you unless you already know something about them.

The good news is that you don't need to know any of that to get your site up and running with a hosting company. What you will find is that with few exceptions, the top rated hosting companies will be flexible enough to offer you all or most of those features and languages and scripts as part of their offering. The rare exception is that some of those things conflict with one another, so the host will offer one or the other and sometimes even both under different plans. The hosting companies you'll see here at 3goHost are all highly qualified and tested with years of experience, in addition to being top ranked by users. You can feel comfortable with any of the hosts you find here. We suggest that you look around and see which ones catch your attention and then dig in. Read the reviews, but remember that reviews are subjective. Look at the features lists for each. Click on their websites and find out more detail. This will help get you there. It really is a quick process.

For some people, price is the leading factor. You will find that prices are competitive for all types of hosting platforms including shared hosting, VPS hosting, cloud hosting or dedicated hosting. Remember, these companies are the leaders in the industry. Some will be a few dollars cheaper and may not have as many features and that may be the best fit for you. Some require yearly agreements while you may want to pay monthly. And you will find that some offer lots of free advertising credits, often as much as $500 for signing with them.

With regard to technical support, some companies offer USA based support teams, some will assign you your very own support representative, some offer 24/7 calling, and some guarantee a wait time of only about 30 seconds. These are things you should be looking for as you make your decision.

Bandwidth and disk space (storage) are things that many hosts offer in unlimited quantities. For most users, that is something that will never matter, because most websites just aren't that big, or that busy. Make sure your host addresses bandwidth and disk space, but only for a few users will the offer of unlimited service really make a difference.

And of course, you will want your site to stay up, so notice what the different hosts have to say about their data centers, how they secure them, whether they have multiple backup systems and how they are monitored. This will never guarantee 100% site uptime, but all of the top ranked hosts here will guarantee more than 99%, some even 99.9%.

Generally the popular motivating factors for most people are:

  • Price
  • Features
  • Tech support
  • Bandwidth/storage
  • Guaranteed website uptime

We don't disagree with these factors, but you must weigh each of them for yourself. If you are a beginning webmaster, you may want to look for hosts that offer one-click setup and auto-install of programs. If you just want a couple websites for yourself or your social group or club, you may not need many features or excessive bandwidth and storage. If you are more experienced, the fact that the hosts offer PHP may help refine your decision.

Good luck with your new website and after you are up and running for a bit, please come back and leave a review.
