A very important part of earning decent income from the Internet is to have different websites in different niches or industries. To this end, it is very important to have a multiple domain web hosting account.
A multiple domain web hosting account is really nothing more than a hosting package that allows you to host an unlimited number of websites – nothing more, nothing less.
There are many hosting companies out there. Hostgator, BlueHost and JustHost are just some of them. While these companies are the same in what they offer, they differ in the devilish details. In this article, we will discuss the basics of a good hosting company, so you will know which company to use.
Unlimited number of domains
A good multiple domain web hosting company shouldn’t limit you in the number of websites that you can host and manage. It’s easy to see on a company’s website if its hosting package allows unlimited domains. Simply press CTRL F on your keyboard and search for “unlimited.”
A hosting account is, really, only as good as its user interface. The easiest hosting packages to manage are the ones that use cPanel. Check with your hosting company if they offer it.
Easy instructions and excellent support
The art and science of making and managing websites can be very time-consuming and too technical for newbies. A good hosting company knows that most people enter the online business with high goals for high income, without any thought on what it really takes to make things run. Thus, easy-to-follow instructions and chat support should be on the hosting company’s menu if it’s to be considered “good”.
Things can and do happen when you manage websites, and it’s possible to delete an entire website without even knowing it. It happened to me and it can happen to you. Thankfully, however, my hosting company makes weekly backups of all the files found on my hosting account.
When my website got deleted, I just asked them to restore my website through the latest backup and everything was running smoothly again. Of course, I paid $15 for it, but that’s the price I pay for being clumsy.
Regular policing of users
With the exception of dedicated hosting accounts, most hosting packages are shared by different website owners. Depending on their level of experience, some of them do things on their hosting accounts, like running scripts or automated cron jobs, that take up a lot of hosting resources, affecting the performance of websites owned by other people on the same account.
As a paying customer, you are entitled to have your websites running smoothly and fast all the time. That’s why it’s very important to ask your web hosting company if they monitor and clamp down on users who run scripts or anything else that affects the entire hosting package.
If you plan on subscribing to a hosting package to start your online business, make sure your hosting company has the features we mentioned above. That way, you can never go wrong.
