It’s easy to overlook quality web hosting, and instead be attracted to the $5 deals. But there is 1 surprising reason to avoid them: cheap hosting will cost you in the long run. And not just financially.
Imagine for a moment that your website went down. At the worst possible time. Now, assign a financial value that experience.
- How much would it cost you, if your golden advertising campaign was shared with thousands, but nobody could access it?
- How many sales would you lose, if your online shop was down during the Boxing Day sales?
- How damaging would it be, if your highly anticipated ticket sales couldn’t be purchased?
- What would it cost you, if your shareholders were unable to access a time sensitive press release?
And in reality, with the wrong hosting, it’s not only going to happen once.
While low-cost hosting will guarantee a small hosting fee, the alternative can offer you so much more. Quality web hosting is an opportunity for peace of mind. Choosing a reliable hosting provider let’s you be available when you customers need you to be.
When reviewing your hosting plan next quarter, ask yourself, can you really afford cheap hosting?
