Building your new web venture can be a scary process, especially if you haven’t ever built even a single website before now. Trying to figure out everything by yourself can be overwhelming. The process can even be a risky one. It is important to be very careful about who gets access to your private information. Starting your project the right way is important and that is why you should start by joining a well known and highly revered web hosting company. How can you tell which hosting company will best serve you?

Researching different companies is a good place to start. You will encounter hundreds (or even thousands) of different hosting companies that will all offer you dozens of web hosting packages to choose from. Take your time and learn everything you can about the hosts that seem the most promising. You want to find out everything you can through both on and offline methods. Find reviews. Learn what you can about how each company’s business practices. You cannot learn too much about any of these companies. There is no such thing as knowing too much about a company that could have access to your banking information as well as your residential information.

Ask a bunch of questions. Make contact with each of the companies you are thinking about buying hosting from. Ask if you can talk to someone who works in the customer service department. You want to avoid any company that does not offer you a live person to speak to. Any company worth trusting will let you have an actual conversation with a live person. If one of your hosting companies cannot prove that they have actual live employees (and not just question and answer bots) they are most likely trying to scam you out of your money. No matter what the size of the company-legitimate operations have live people working for them. Be wary of any company without live representatives!

Check out the day to day business practices of the company. Big companies are almost always registered with business bureaus. Do some checking into the company’s physical location-make sure that the headquarters listed on the company site is registered with that city and state. Find out if the company is listed within the Better Business Bureau. Be wary of any company with a list of negative comments after its name within this listing. Tread carefully around any hosting company that is not registered with its city or state. Even people who operate independently are required to register themselves with their city and state. Don’t give any money to a company that cannot be verified with the legal authorities.

Making sure that your web hosting company is safe and not trying to scam you takes some time and effort. It is better to be too careful than to get taken advantage of. Asking too many questions is simply not possible. Keep in mind that you will be paying this company to provide you with a service. You should remember to be very careful about who you give your personal information to. It would be terrible for you to trust someone who turned out to be scam artists. Identity thieves and other scammers are just waiting to take advantage of someone naive. It is absolutely impossible to tread too carefully.
