When it comes to hosting your eCommerce store, you don’t want to make a hasty decision. Running a successful online shop requires that you offer an awesome customer experience. By going with the wrong host, you might slow down your website’s performance so much so that your visitors leave your site as soon as they come in.
As a business owner, you want to make the experience of online shopping easy and hassle-free for your customers. The kind of hosting service you choose will affect the performance, uptime and site load speed, each of which is an integral part of offering a high quality customer experience.
Let’s take a look at some important aspects to consider when choosing a web host for your eCommerce store.
Every second that your eCommerce store is offline, you are not making any money. When your online shop does not have a high uptime, you are providing a poor experience to your visitors.
A lot of hosts might speak about high uptime guarantee, in the form of money back for the time your website is offline. However, this money pales in comparison to the kind of money you would be making if your site was not offline.
So instead of falling for gimmicky guarantees, look for a host that is known to offer a high uptime. At LS25 Web Hosting, our customers are assured of 99.9% uptime.
Your web host should be able to keep pace with your online store’s growth. If you are growing, you will need a bigger hosting space and higher performance. It’s highly possible that the shared hosting plan you began with might not be suitable for you anymore. You need a host that can handle your current resource and traffic requirements without affecting the performance.
When you have an issue with the hosting server, you want a quick resolution. A dip in the performance or the uptime will affect the user experience as well as your bottom line.
A great support team might not sound like a great deal. However, when you have a server issue during a peak time when you are expecting a big sale, you’ll want to deal with a support team that can understand your urgency and resolves issues quickly.
