What is your up-time?
Uptime is literally the amount of time your site is online. Most would prefer 100% of uptime but this is close to impossible because servers need to be restarted, patch and some basic maintenance work. So an uptime of 99.9% would be ideal.
What should I consider before purchasing a web host?
Don't just based your decision on a well published company and hoping your connection will be fast. This is because most of this companies take in too many customers and as a result slow down their connections. A reliable company like onewebspace.com will do otherwise. Choose a company who do not oversell their services and even if they uses a T1 link, your connection will be fast as only a few customers uses this link. Look for those companies that published their web speed on their main site with a third party provider. This will indicate to you their actual commitment for reliability.
Most companies will restrict their customers with the features based on the hosting plan they choose. We at onewebspace.com do not restrict any features at all. You choose the amount of space and bandwidth and all the features will be available to all hosting plans regardless of which plan you choose.
What are the factors affecting web site speed and performance?
Basically factors affecting site speed and performance are system hardware, server memory used, processor and the number of sites being hosted. If a company were to take in as many clients as they can so as to gain more profit, it will definitely slow down site performance and speed. In onewebspace.com we do not oversell. We allocate space and bandwidth accordingly so that every client has its equal share of space and bandwidth according to the plan purchased. If the dedicated space and bandwidth is fully taken up, we just upgrade to a larger rack.
