    Things to Consider When Seeking a Server Hosting Company

    You know that server hosting makes your business more secure by providing off-site hosting that keeps your business running in the event of a natural disaster or terrorist attack. You also know that having off-site server hosting lets you free up IT personnel for other projects and lowers your business’ overhead. Since you know the advantages, you have already decided to contract with an off-site server hosting facility. The only question remaining is how to pick a company to host your server? When searching for a host for your server, consider the following:

    Location, location, location

    The old business axiom is right: location is everything. But with when hosting a server, the right location means something different. Rather than a high traffic area, data centers are concerned with safety and security. That means choosing a location that is safe from natural disasters such as floods and far away from a major city’s potential terrorist activity zone. This not only keeps your data center safe: it keeps your business safe too.

    Low risk clients 

    Clients such as healthcare companies, education facilities, and telecommunication companies have a very low risk of causing server effects that harm your business. Pornography and gambling websites are very high risk. In order to mitigate your company’s risk factor, look for a company with low risk clients.

    Support staff

    In order to properly serve your business, any company hosting your servers should have a trained and accredited staff. This gives you the peace of mind that your server is being cared for by the best in the business.

    Support 

    The internet never stops and server problems can occur at any time, day or night. A good host has 24-hour on site staff to help you deal with any problems that may occur.
