When it comes to choosing a webhost there are a number of factors that make local hosting attractive to business owners. Local hosting companies can provide a personal touch when it comes to customer service. One phone call connects the small business owner to a person instead of an automated phone tree. Using one hosting company that manages and resolves all website administration and technical problems saves the small business time.
Small business owners are able to meet with the Web hosting company personnel in person. The owners are able to establish a professional business relationship with the Web hosting company.
Web hosting with a local hosting provider also offers speed and performance advantages for small businesses. Website owners should know that a locally hosted website loads approximately three times faster than hosting the website with an international Web hosting company, because the site visitors are physically closer to the website data center. Customers save time because they are able to load the website at a faster pace in their browsers. This makes it easier for prospective buyers to find what they are looking for more efficiently. Satisfied customers will return to the website more frequently. Search engines such as Google often use geographic location of site as a ranking factor.
Small business owners should keep other considerations in mind while learning how to choose a Web host. These include enough bandwidth to a handle a large volume of visitors to the website, number of email accounts that are allowed to be created by the locally hosted company, the enhancement of customer reliability and website security. Small business owners need to know how to choose a Web host according to the best features and services needed by the business instead of by the lowest price.
