So you want to be a web host? Here are a few tips you could use to get
the edge even if you’re starting out new. Start out with the right
equipment. A lot of web host drop out of the race so quickly because they
didn’t plan out their growth and match it with their operating resources.
You’ve got to research, get tips from the best IT people, systems
engineers, electricians, and other professionals and get the best
telecommunications tested networking gears complete with back up systems
to give solid assurance to your clients of continuous 24 hrs service even
if you have do some maintenance of parts of your operation.

Back up systems kick in if you have some trouble with some of your
servers and clients can continue to retrieve files when needed when there
is a temporary system crash. Location of your equipments should be in
relatively hazard free environments so these do not cause periodic
operational failures for you. Most of your clients would be big
businesses who are investing thousands of dollars to have their website
hosted by you. So your reputation is at stake. Leading web hosting
companies have a solid reputation and they invest heavily to keep their
reputation spotless. When you’re starting out, you have to build your
reputation from scratch. So be wary.

Clients expect to have the following as part of your services:
reliability, bandwidth and speed of access. They don’t want to hear any
feedbacks that their website is unavailable, is slow jumping from one
page to another. The speed should be uniform for all hours of the day
even during those times when the internet traffic is extremely heavy.
Allowing for a lot of space for clients to grow whether for business or
for personal use will also be important. Make sure that the bandwidth you
offer is more than enough for all the types of clients. E-commerce and
even some individual clients want to download different sizes of files,
the less restrictions you have when it comes to downloading or uploading
files, the better.
FTP or File Transfer protocol is an important part of web hosting and you
should be ready to assist newbie on this by having a very responsive and
patient customer support. A 24/7 online team is a must to answer any
concerns of your clients. Some web hosts have a feature called a WEBDISK
that allows them to hook up their computer files to the web host so that
instead of looking for the files on their computer they use this feature
which produces a copy of their computers actual files for easy copy paste
maneuvers when they want to add content rather than uploading it from
their computer.

If the clients will be needing extra features like video hosting, MP3
Hosting , image hosting make sure your system can provide such services
without affecting your whole web hosting operation. It’s better to have a
powerful server at the onset with a wide bandwidth. Your features
including Pricing will always be an important factor.
