Having a reliable web hosting provider is imperative to having a successful online business in 2016. I have used many web hosting companies over the past 10 years, some terrible and some very average to say the least. When looking for a new host for my website I wanted a few things.
1. Reliable service. If the website is down all the time and I am on the road (with my job) then my customers and potential customers can't find our location or contact number.
2. Good technical support. I am by no means a novice but things can and do go wrong. What is important is being able to get support when I need it.
3. A partner to my business needs. I wanted a company that could also help with web design needs when they came up.
4. Finding someone local who didn't understand my needs because they are on the other side of the planet.
I have recommended Media Fortress to a few of my associates, all happy with results.
