April 15th, 2010 @ 10:51 am

Are you planning your web hosting needs for 2010-11? Perhaps you are fine-tuning your plans to launch a new blog or website which will take your business to the next level. It is a good time to invest in e-commerce because the global economy is expected to bounce back strongly from the rather dismal show during the previous fiscal year. But in the aftermath of last year’s mishaps, the time has come for you to make your web hosting smarter and more effective. Reading on, will reveal how you can do that.

Here are some cool tips to make web hosting a more profitable activity for you, by cutting costs and increasing returns on every dollar you spend.

1. Whether you use Windows hosting or Linux hosting, do you know that you can usually save a lot of money by choosing an annual payment plan? No surprise if you don’t, because that’s the case with most website owners. Usually if the annual payment is divided into monthly installments on a pro-rata basis, you will find out how much more you actually pay by going for monthly payment plans.

If you are renewing the contract with your existing web host or are perhaps switching over to a new host, you can easily opt for an annual plan. Additionally some annual plans:

  • Come with zero set-up costs and
  • Also offer you discounts for signing a 1-year contract.

2. You should also consider choosing clustered web hosting, if you are concerned with the capabilities of your current server in dealing with surges in traffic. Clustered web hosting is not confined to a single server and so, high traffic will not cause your website to run slowly. This makes sure that visitors keep coming back for more and are not turned off by considerable loading times, particularly if your website is high-end. You can easily upgrade to a clustered hosting plan on a pay-as-you-go basis, to give your website a competitive edge without having to break bank!

3. Get a support domain, if you wish to really expand the scope of your e-business. This domain can be used specifically to provide customer service and tech support. It also helps to take a lot of load away from your main site.

Hope you find these tips useful enough to implement and then reap some fantastic rewards, same time next year!
