It is important that your web host has all the greatest features and
technologies. However, you may not be aware of what you should look for
in a web host. They all say they are the best, most reliable, etc. but
how do you decipher who is really telling the truth? How do you find out
what is really important when choosing a web host? In this article you
will find the 5 things your web host must have. When you are researching
a web host and you come across one that does not have these 5 things just
click away to find one that does have what you need.

5 Features Your Web Host Must Have –

1.    Greatest Control Panel: The control panel is the place you will be
visiting most often, so it should be easy to use, have all the features
you need, etc. You can find a great control panel with cPanel, which
provides one of the best control panel user experiences among all of the
others. CPanel offers more than 42 different icons, 50 of the most used
PHP scripts, shopping carts, forums, and even a WordPress blog – one of
the best blog hosts out there. cPanel also provides an easy to use layout
and navigation so when you do use it you can forget about frustration.

2.    On 24-7: Your web host should be working for you around the clock.
This will keep your website up and running 99.9% of the time, and the
server should be able to locate and repair any problems as soon as they
appear. It is rare that a server could become inactive, but if/when it
does happen, you do not want it to happen to your website. That could
mean lost sales, lost visitors, and maybe even lost customers for life.
No one wants that. The web host should be working all of the time – no
exceptions. It should constantly monitor your website at least every few
minutes for problems, check your server load and RAM, and be able to let
administrators know immediately so they can instantaneously fix the
problem. Your web host should also provide a fire wall to keep your
website safe from hackers, viruses, and anything else that could effect
your website.
3.    An Outstanding Server: If you want to avoid regular problems   and
too much downtime (all that can be avoided) you need to find a web   host
with a reliable server. The web host’s server should have multiple   hard
drives, good RAM, the latest CPUs, the best power supply, quality
motherboards, a great cooling system, and a testing system for all   new
servers.

4.    Linux Servers: No, you do not need windows servers. You should get
a web host that uses Linux only. You don’t need to have Linux on your own
computer to have a web host that uses Linux. Linux has been shown to be
more reliable and able to handle larger loads than other server operating
systems. It is even better at virus protection and has a better uptime
than others.

5.    Free Features: Your web host should provide you with a variety of
free features, or features that you can use for a small fee. These
features should include things that you can use for your website such as
graphics, blogs, paid pages, sub domains, interesting facts to add to
your website, forums, and more.
