5 Things to Look for in a Joomla Hosting Plan

If you have decided to use Joomla and invest in a Joomla hosting plan for your website, there are a few following features to consider in your search.

1. Scalability

When choosing a Joomla hosting provider, you have to give a thought  about what you require  today, but you’ll make a better long-term decision  if you also consider what you could need in the future. Determine whether the web hosting company you go with provides room to grow i.e. will it be easy to upgrade your plan down the line if your website starts getting a lot more traffic, or if you decide to develop your website to include features that require a higher level of bandwidth?

2. 24/7 Support

You may well have times where you require a little help figuring out how to do something or fixing a problem that’s not working right. When that happens, you want to get ahold of someone that knows how to help and can provide the information you need fast.Any web hosting provider you choose (as long as they offer paid plans), should provide customer support. But also check to see if the support they provide is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. And verify some hosting reviews to check  if their customer support team has a reputation for having a good track record. The accessibility and quality of the customer support you receive can make a big difference in how satisfied you are with a Joomla hosting provider.

3. 99% Uptime

Uptime is the word used in the web hosting industry to tell the amount of time your website is accessible for the visitors on the web. Because web hosting servers sometimes have to go offline for maintenance, no service provider can promise 100% uptime. And web servers can go offline for a number of reasons, such as improper maintenance, hackers , parts breaking, or web servers being affected physically by extreme weather conditions like flooding.

4. Security

 This is a major point on which everyone thinks about. Website security is an issue all website owner has to prioritize today. Hacked websites and data breaches are an all too common reality, and often websites built using a CMS are a particular target since hackers know how to find vulnerabilities in the CMS code. While there are a number of steps you can take to make your website more secure from hackers, including keeping your Joomla version up to date, one of the best ways to ensure website security is choosing the right web hosting provider.

5. Affordability

Web hosting is a required expense if you want to have a website, but it doesn’t have to be a large one. When you’re in view of your options, you have to think about what you can afford. In some cases, paying a little extra can be worth it for what you get for the extra money—such as choosing a web hosting plan that includes quality you need like an SSL certificate or a website builder. So consider carefully what you’re getting for the cost, and make sure it fits in your website budget.
