Have you ever faced a dilemma in choosing a Linux hosting? What are the most important factors to consider when making the decision? What we should look before choosing a good Linux hosting plan? It's certainly not easy, especially because in the market there are many options of Linux web hosting, the first factor that could be considered is the country where the company is providing the service of hosting. For instance, we want to buy a plan of Linux hosting from aweb development company India. Have you ever thought of the challenges you might encounter while you call the customer care service to buy the apt plan? Some aspects to be analyzed are: 1. Type of Support: Do you use ticketing system? Do you seek help of a telephonic customer care support? Many ISPs give good support and have highly trained people, who respond to every small doubt. 2. Type of contract: Monthly, quarterly or yearly... 3. IPs and country location of their data centers, especially from SEO perspective this factor should be taken into account. 4. Modes of payment accepted by Linux hosting 5. Control Panel : There are often cheap hosting service providers, who offer a complete control panel with certain limitations on the number of domains. 6. Operating System: Some providers allow you to choose the software distribution that you wish to install. 7. Do I have to pay for a setup? In many cases itís mandatory... 8. Traffic hired: Some have monthly traffic restrictions or bandwidth restrictions. Others limit the bandwidth, once the traffic exceeds. 9. Server Management: Is it included in the price? Some Linux hosting service providers don't include administration and support services. If you want to install any component on your Linux machine, you must apply and you will be billed at a high price. If you drive a Linux dedicated server or VPS (Virtualized private server), you must make changes, updates or install PHP libraries or make backups on your machine. 10. Ability to add a new IP to your hosting: It is important especially, if you do email marketing campaigns. Because the service provider may block your IP you work with and this will prevent your corporate email to reach its destination. Also, some features of a server often require a dedicated IP, for example, an anonymous FTP server. Well! That's only been 10 tips or recommendations. If you want to buy a hosting plan or a dedicated server, or any other VPS Linux hosting, I hope you will find them useful.
