Resuming Managed Hosting: 6 Important Things to Look for from a Provider (Pt. 1), below, we will continue to point out some key features to look for when you are in the process of selecting the best managed hosting provider for you and your business’ website.
Managed Hosting: More Things to Look for…
3 – Regular and frequent backups and sufficient storage capabilities.
Backing up the data and information on a website regularly is crucial to:
- Not losing important content, info, etc.
- Not losing additional time and money, which can be the case when businesses need to invest their resources in recovering information that was lost because backups weren’t performed.
In fact, while regular backups are critical for any website, they can be far more essential when content (or other information) is being regularly added to the site (which should be the case if a business wants to fully optimize its site and position it for optimal success in search engines).
Here, it’s also important to point out that regular backups from a managed hosting provider should be supported by sufficient storage capacity. In other words, it’s not enough for regular backups to happen; a good managed hosting provider should also have enough storage capacity on its servers to ensure that backups are always completed. This is where innovations in cloud storage can be helpful.
4 – Regular server maintenance.
Regularly maintaining a server can be crucial to ensuring that all of the necessary platforms and features of websites are functioning properly. So, when it comes to asking managed hosting providers about their servers, be sure to ask:
- How frequently server maintenance is conducted?
- Who conducts this maintenance?
- What does this maintenance entail?
While you may want to avoid providers that don’t conduct any regular server maintenance, you should also be cautious of moving forward with managed hosting providers that cannot provide you with definitive answers and information regarding the above questions.
