Introducing Form Element: Now Build Custom Form With Visual Page Builder

Form-Element-1

Have you ever thought of a form builder inside a page builder? Did you ever think of getting a complete pro form builder with high-quality designing options without installing any external plugin or extension?

Well, we have.

For the first time, Quix has embedded Form Element that will allow you to create beautiful, astonishing and eye-catching forms using your very own Quix, that too WITHOUT installing any sort of extension.

To be more specific, for the first time, there is a real form builder inside a page builder.

This idea is developed by ThemeXpert and the team made a very useful element. The form element is very own of its kind. There are a lot of page builders available. But none of them carries this kind of element in it. The team designed form element with all the necessary features in it. You can design every bit of it using the settings option.

Let's dive a bit deeper. Shall we?

Form Element

We all are familiar with different types of forms. A form is an information collecting system where numerous empty fields are provided with labels for users to provide information for a certain reason. It can be a survey, registration form, login form etc.

And then the collected information's are stored in the database for later use. Most of us use contact forms to collect intellectual data of users, customers etc for newsletter purpose. 

Creating a form was never an easy work. Back in the days, coders had to struggle with it. They would get tangled if they had to create more than one forms that too in different styles. But thanks to ThemeXpert as they solved the puzzle.

The team built Quix page builder with astonishing elements and features. Among them, form element is designed with a simple look but dashing working system. You can easily create thousands of dynamic forms with a few clicks. All you need you to do is select the element, bring the changes, set a field destination and save it. That's all.

Necessity of Form Element

A form is a necessary element for any website and everyone needs it. And it plays a vital role in the contact form. You can hardly find a site without a contact form.

Nowadays, forms are used for different purposes. You can use it for newsletter information, survey purpose, registration fill-ups, online shopping cart etc. Forms are used in many ways.

To create a form via raw code is tough. You have to write the tags, placeholders, add proper padding, attach CSS for styling and much more. But not now. Now you can create any type of form with the help of Quix form element and it would take only a few minutes. 

Features

Quix form element is created with all the necessary features. You'll find all the options in it to create any kind of form. These features are listed below:

  • Acts just as a Form Builder
  • The number of field addition is unlimited. One can add fields as much as he needs.
  • Supports 11 field types
  • Smart Grid control
  • Message customization options
  • After form submit hook
  • Maximum control over styling form options
  • Multi-select field type support
  • Email response customize support

Loading A Form Inside The Joomla Article

 

One thing I love about Quix is, "it can flexibly adjust with Joomla article". If you have a few previously created articles in Joomla and if you want to display a form in those articles then what will you do? You can go for either copy-paste option or create a new form inside the article editing field.

But what if I say you don't have to do either of these… Cause now you can insert any kind of Quix form with just a few simple steps. All you need to do is, create the form and save the template. Now go into your Joomla article and from there insert the saved form template. Click on the "save" button and preview the page. You'll find the form in your article just where you inserted.

Why would you choose Quix for Forms?

You might think, "There are so many plugins out there in the market already. Then why did we included it in Quix? Was it necessary?"

To tell you the truth, until now there is no Joomla page builder that has dynamic form builder in it. But this discovery was made by ThemeXpert team. And this form element is designed to give you the best form building experience. Besides, creating a dynamic form requires a big size extension. This extension would not only take a large portion of your site but also hamper other elements, extensions, and settings.

Well, now you are free from all the troubles of external form builder. Quix has the most possible feature you need with best UI-UX. It's not HTML/CSS based. It has been made by ReactJS to give the users the best experience of building real-time pages as we care about your experience of page building, reliability, controlling and more of UI/UX.

Some Lucrative Form Designs

With Quix, you can design the forms in any way you want. You can add as much as the field you need. Allow me to show some demos. 

Contact Form using bold background colors 

 Create form adjusting the column size

Create any kind of order form 

 Adjust column width in accordance to background

Design creative forms for any event 

Add social network buttons underneath 

Conclusion

In the end, all I can say is, do not make yourself confused with just any buzzy form extensions of the market. With Quix's form element, you can create any type of form with all the options of editing including placeholder, help note, designing box shadows, animations etc. What else do you need?

Joomla Features

​Joomla comes with many exciting features, but the most crucial ones are:

User Management

Authentication is one of the very important parts for the user management. Joomla supports multiple protocols including Gmail and LDAP. With the help of this users can streamline the registration process by using their existing account information.

Joomla uses its own registration system and allows to control user accounts from the admin account. A total of seven user groups with various types of permissions are available with Joomla.

These user groups are:

Registered: This group of the user is allowed to login in the front-end interface, but they cannot contribute to any content of the site. Though with the registered access they can contribute to the forum or access the download section of the site.

Editor: An editor can post and edit any content item they want. They are not confined to edit their own articles only. Besides they can also edit the published and unpublished ones. Unpublished ones are invisible for everyone except, editor, publisher, manager and

Author: One author can create a new post content and submit it. After submitting the post, it needs to be approved by a higher level of the user. Only then his post is published, and he can modify anything further.

Publisher: One can post, edit and publish any content within their back end from this group of users. They review articles, edit it, and when it's alright to publish the content, they publish it

These three groups of section allow users to access Joomla.

Manager: This group gives access to system information and content creation of Joomla. Managers can create, edit, delete any content they want along with menus and front page. They do not have the full access to all mechanism of Joomla, like installing modules or components.

Administrators: This group has access to most of the administrative functions of Joomla. An administrator has the privilege of almost everything. However, they cannot alter, edit or install any templates and make any changes to the global configuration option of the Joomla.

Super Administrator: This user has access to every administration functions. Only a super administrator can create or edit another super administrator account. Full access to ALL AREAS is given to these users and once a super administrator account is created cannot be easily deleted. 

Better Content Management

Organizing your content is so much easier with Joomla flexible category system. Organize the content like the way you want, and it's not necessary how the content will be on your website. Your users can read, comment, create articles or if they want they can also email them to a friend.

Administrator, authors and appropriate users can modify and archive the content for safekeeping, hide it from your visitors. Built-in email cloaking protects your precious email addresses from the spambots.

Content creation comes with simplicity in Joomla. The WYSIWYG editor gives the user control to combine images and texts in an attractive way. Once you have created your content, there are several pre-installed modules available to show the latest items, most popular articles, related articles, news flashes and much more. 

Page Builder Support

The page builder is a great tool to lower your development cost and time of your Joomla site. With the help of page builder, you do not need to know any programming language, as most of the page builder comes with drag and drop interface. All you have to do is drag elements and a little bit of customization.

Quix vs Wix

First, let's discuss about Wix, this website builder gives you lots of features and build website absolutely free, but when you want to add your domain, you must use their premium plan.

Now tell me one thing, what is the benefit of a free site which doesn't allow you to add your preferred domain without money? That means they are forcing you to take premium plans. On the contrary, you can use Joomla and Quix page builder to publish your site anywhere without money.

Joomla is a very popular CMS, and it got better with Quix Joomla page builder. All the features and functionality provided by Wix is very less in front of Quix page builder. Your website building experience will get enhanced with Quix, before buying you can try quix.

Which One is Better For You

Joomla and Wix both are better, but it depends upon your use and needs.

If you do not have any time at all to check your website and have a lot of money than choose Wix. Because Wix will only allow you to make a website with everything limited. If you are happy with a website like "Hello World," then certainly Wix is better for you.

But if you want to build a site that will give you the freedom to edit code, customize and use third-party templates and extensions than choose Joomla. There is nothing impossible that cannot be built with Joomla. You can create any simple to complex websites with Joomla.

You have got no restrictions on Joomla, do whatever you want.

I will not tell you what you should do or what you should choose. It's fully your choice, but if you ask for my opinion, I will suggest to go with Joomla.

If you want to know the reason it's simple, I love to build elegant websites with cool functionality, and when I finished my Wix project it was like: "Finally its over, now I can work with something interesting."

Another factor for not choosing Wix is money. By choosing the combo plan for Wix, you get 2GB bandwidth, 3GB storage and some basic options for $8.50/month. Where with less money you get unlimited disk space, bandwidth and much more thing from inmotion hosting. Other hostings also provide you with almost the same facilities.

By the money you use in Wix, with the same money you can do more than enough. Hope you have got the point and will choose the right one for you. 

Conclusion

Joomla and Wix both have much popularity. In this post we have described about Wix vs Joomla, now it's up to you to choose your website building tool. Still unsure? Well, you can use both and then decide which one is suitable for you.

7 Best Joomla Hosting for Faster Loading Joomla Website in 2018

Hosting

Hey guys, we are going to discuss the best Joomla hosting for users, and we will try to make this article very newbie friendly. By making this article newbie friendly, we aimed to explain almost all you need to know about Joomla CMS and hosting itself in plain language. Almost everyone knows that starting to develop a website from scratch has never been an easy process. 

A bad hosting provider for your website is a wrong way to start, knowing the best hosting providers for whatever CMS platform you want your site to be hosted on is a great way to start. Since we are focusing this article on the best Joomla hosting for Joomla users, let us first discuss what is Joomla content management system (CMS).

What is Joomla?

Joomla is one of the leading tools in the creation of websites, and it is among the most awarded Content Management System (CMS) worldwide. There are more than 30 million web pages created with Joomla. You have more than 10,000 components at your disposal that will allow you to expand the functionality of your website with options such as a virtual store, newsletters, forums, image galleries and endless possibilities that do not stop growing.

Joomla allows you to manage all your website efficiently, create a new section, modify the current ones, add new images, create new menu options and almost anything you need you can do quickly and without technical knowledge. If you have just basic knowledge of Word (Microsoft Word) or any other text editor you can efficiently manage your website.

Joomla is an Open Source, that means you can use it for free, and almost 95% of the components for Joomla are also free; that is why it is among the top CMS today.

Let's look into what hosting is all about and the best type of hosting available.

What is Web Hosting and Why You Need That?

A web host is mostly called a space in which you purchase on a web server to store your site files. Think for example your computer and the folders and files in them; every file has a folder in which it is saved and can be accessed easily from, that is just the concept of web hosting.

For any website to become live, it needs to be located, that is hosted on a web server. By buying a hosting plan from any web hosting company, you are only renting space from their web server. So in the situation, someone decides to visit your website by entering your domain name, the person will be directed to your website.

When you hire the services of a web host provider, all backend concerns would be managed by them, repair and maintenance of the server are included. Generally, a web hosting company is there to make life easier by saying webmasters from lots of hassle.

If you have in mind to start a Joomla web project and have been evaluating different options to host it, you will have discovered that there is an excellent variety of hosting types. We explain briefly what each one consists of:

Shared Hosting

Since web hosting can be simply said to be a computer (server) that allows you to store and publish your files on the internet for everyone to see. A web hosting company most times called web host can decide to rent its computer (server) space to customers.

A shared hosting can then be explained as type of web hosting service where many websites that differs share one physical server. This however reduces the cost of hosting effectively. Even though shared hosting means shared resources like the disk space, ram, CPU and bandwidth, all your files are safely protected from others.

Pros

  • It is budget friendly
  • It is very convenient

Cons

  • You have limited resources
  • You don't have full control

Use Case

Shared hosting is mostly used by these category of websites

  • Low traffic website
  • A new growing website
  • A personal blog
  • A forum

Virtual Private Server (VPS)

A Virtual Private Server is simply explained as a virtual machine which takes care of the individual needs of a user, and it is carried out as an isolated physical computer dedicated to one particular user. Virtual servers mostly consist of a file transfer protocol software, a web server software, a mail server program and different other types of software for e-commerce, blogging etc.

You should also note that is this type of hosting; you will be responsible of catering for the server. In summary, a Virtual Private Server is partitioned/mapped out part of a physical server.

Pros

  • You have full control over it
  • It is more protected and secure
  • You can run scheduled task and maintenance.

Cons

  • It is more on the expensive side

Use Cases

  • Advanced users
  • Companies and businesses

Dedicated Server

A dedicated server is the easiest of all to understand, imagine this scenario: You purchased a PC from a store and connect it to your home network, then installed and connected the web server software and DNS respectively and correctly. This PC would be able to make your website go live and handle all requests from all over the globe.

However, the question to be asked remains, how will it cope with power outages, theft, crashes, the rise in traffic, security breaches? Web hosts take upon themselves all these risks and solve these issues. In summary, you rented a server situated at a web hosts data centre.

Pros

  • It is easy to use
  • More capabilities
  • It is flexible
  • High performance
  • More secure
  • More reliable

Cons

  • More expensive 

Use Cases

  • This is mainly used by Larger companies or corporations 

Hosting for Newbies

Maybe you've lost yourself with so much technicality: hosting, web hosting, hosting, VPS, RAM, CPU ... Do not worry, it all happened to us. Some hosting companies think that we are all computer scientists and that we understand what they say and it is not always the case.

To make the article more newbie friendly with a good taste and understand perfectly the types of hosting that exist, I have to try and summarize these hosting packages.

Types of Hosting Summarized

  • Shared hosting is like a co-working space, where you rent a table and start working. You'll find other startups in the same floor sharing internet, water, electricity, elevator etc.
  • The VPS hosting is comparable to urbanisation of townhouses with which you share some services, such as the community pool. You enjoy considerable autonomy.
  • The dedicated server is a single-family house in which you live alone and do what you want. The neighbours are several tens of meters away, and they do not bother you. It is more difficult to manage (more expenses, more paperwork, more time) but it is worth it when you need it, and you can pay it.

What Makes a Host Great + Why

When we work online on projects that generate money and expenses. It is vital to have an excellent hosting service nearby. Unfortunately, a large number of people opt-in for hosting services of low quality. Fortunately, today we will see some of the characteristics of an excellent hosting service. For you as a webmaster, you can identify if the company you have hired, meets the quality guidelines that we will mention or if it lacks some details.

Apparently, in the best Joomla hosting services discussed below, they can fulfill everything and assure you a high-quality hosting service. So, without further ado, let's see the characteristics of a good Hosting.

What Features Should You Lookout for When You Shop for a Hosting?

Optimized Servers: When it comes to a hosting service dedicated to electronic commerce, one of the main things that are needed, is that the servers are optimized for what they are going to be used. For this, we must see the operating system they handle, which is the optimum for the project we are going to undertake.

For example. If you are about to install Joomla, take care that the server has Windows and Apache. Otherwise, if you use one with Linux or another operating system, you will see complexities and really strange things that in a serious project you will not want to find. Mainly for the loss of money that you can generate.

Great Support: Imagine a situation in which your website crashes, the server is not online, or you suffer some mishap with the platform on which you work. For any of these cases, good technical support is of vital importance. Moreover, for example, in these cases, in these discussed hosting companies below, they have technical support in high quality. 

Customer service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, but mainly, having trained personnel, who know how to meet the needs of customers and that are not the typical ones that they tell you, wait later to solve it. It really is a point that must be analyzed in detail.

Scalable infrastructure: As a third important factor in the quality of a hosting service. We have the scalability. What do you mean by scalable Infrastructure? When we talk of being scalable, we refer to the possibility of increasing the capabilities of a server, according to the required needs. That is we need more RAM; the scalable server allows more RAM to be added.

We need more disk space; the scalable server allows more storage space to be added without generating major problems. This type of things guarantees a great quality in the web hosting service and will surely make you satisfied.

High Performance: Not all companies can afford to have the acronyms of high performance. However, if you see a company that has this feature, then approach them, because they will surely provide the performance that you and your business need. Obviously, note that it also complies with the rest of the features that we have just mentioned so that you are much calmer.

I would not dare to recommend a Joomla hosting service, giving the adjective of the "best" market, what I have done is giving you the features every best hosting services should possess, so in general, I would say that before buying any hosting service evaluate the following:

  • Acceptable load time, data transfer and user-friendly and intuitive interface.
  • With the possibility that within your plan you can migrate to your hosting to another, keeping your data.
  • Unlimited email when you buy a paid service, although at this point it would be important that you evaluate the use of what you are going to give it, be it personal, corporate or for a startup.
  • 24/7 quality technical support, with additional forums to the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ), video tutorials, etc.
  • Backups (backups), daily, automatic and programmable.
  • In case you are going to sell the service, you must have unlimited domain hosting for the clients and have a wide bandwidth (at least 50 GB).
  • An open and flexible infrastructure to host different E-commerce platforms and CMS (content management systems) such as WordPress that I usually use.
  • For the other options and if you are a customer, a disk space of at least 1GB to have a sufficient minimum power.
  • The hosting must be updated regarding security (viruses, Trojans, spyware, Anti-Spam filters, etc.) and spam filters (essential).
  • Support programming languages such as HTML, PHP, JQuery, AJAX and even, databases at least in MySQL and Javascript language although for some it is already sent to collect.

Inmotion

 InMotion Hosting is one of the most used hosts in the world. Thanks to many years of experience, IMH has become a pioneer in the field of website hosting. The innovative solution, sophisticated hosting technique, are offered to customers thanks to the business offer.

History of the Hosting Company InMotion Hosting

The deployment of innovative hosting solutions has enabled InMotion Hosting to gain a foothold in the IT and cloud market. Unlike other companies, it offers a wide choice of Data Center distributed throughout the North American territory. In addition, it offers various services such as the shared solution, the VPS server for all applications available on the market.

Founded in 2001, its headquarters are based in the United States primarily in two states, California and Virginia. Like all existing hosting companies, it also offers domain name management, but in a more optimal way.

InMotion Review

Business Class Hosting Offers

Among the InMotion Hosting offers, this one seems to be the most popular.

The business hosting offer, offers three services: The Launch offer, reserved for those who want to break into the market, that is to say, small businesses. It is offered at $4.89/month and gives access to a two-site hosting without e-commerce solution and an unlimited transfer volume.

The Power solution provides the customer with 6 domain names at $6.29/month with the possibility of using 50 SQL databases. For the most professional, the Pro offer is the most recommended option. With a price of $10.49/month, they can host 25 websites and more than 200 SQL databases, with unlimited use of subdomains.

The Dedicated Servers

For dedicated server offerings, InMotion Hosting allows users to choose between three proposals. First, there is the "Essential" offer at $119.99/month including 2 GHz and 4GB of RAM, a 7.2TB SATA 1TB disc. For those who need a greater volume of space, the "Advanced" offer is able to satisfy them. Offered at a price of $159.99/month with a Raid-1.2 × 120Gb SSD or Raid-1.2 × 1Tb 7.2K SATA drive with 8GB of RAM, it's the solution for high-performance sites.

Finally, there is the high end with "Elite" whose disc comes in three versions: the SSD of 250Gb, the Sata of 1Tb and Data Backup of 2Tb of 16GB of RAM. This solution costs $229.99/month.

InMotion Dedicated VPS InMotion Hosting Offers

Hosting company InMotion Hosting also has many VPS server offerings. The entry-level VPS-1000HA-S server at $29.99/month offers the option of having 4 GB of RAM, a 60 Gb drive for 2TB traffic. For the VPS-2000HA-S, the user will benefit from a disk of 130 GB, a traffic of 3 TB and 6 GB of RAM. This option is available at $49.99/month. 

The high potential server VPS-3000HA-S, meanwhile, costs $74.99/month. The offer includes the use of 200Gb of the disk with a traffic of 4TB to 8GB of RAM.

Top Two Features Of The InMotion

Value For Money: Of course, the costs depended on the type of plan you choose but compared to the other popular web hosting providers I've studied, I must say that InMotion is affordable and indeed offers you top options. The Value Class plan starts at $ 3 a month, and you can pay an extra $ 1 - $ 2 for more options and more hard drive space - my basic plan cost $ 1 more.

If you are about to set up an online store, you should consider adding $ 2 since Online Shopping Baskets, and Shared SSL are not included in both Basic Plans. For $ 4 a month, I had to subscribe for 24 months and prepay for the duration of my subscription. I got a free domain, and if you want to buy other domains, they cost $ 11.95 more per year.

Support: As I always do when I test a web host's customer support, I asked him three questions - one easy, one moderately easy, and the last a bit more complicated. I was put in touch with the support team in just a few seconds. It's always a good point.

My counsellor had no problem helping me with the first two questions. The third, however, seemed to embarrass him a little and I did not get a very clear answer. However, after a few exchanges, I must admit having all the information I needed. So, overall, it's a good support team.

  • Live Chat
  • phone
  • E-mail

You can easily contact the InMotion support team - try any of the above three ways.

Other Features

  • Top notch software bundles

InMotion Hosting Conclusion

InMotion Hosting practices the lowest rate regarding web hosting. Concerned about the well-being of its customers, it proposes a service of assistance on its various services. The practice of a "satisfied or refunded" policy gives it a good image among users. This is why it has become one of the most widely used hosting solutions.

In addition to these advantages, InMotion Hosting wants to be intuitive, because a site hosted on one of its servers can perfectly develop. The only problem is at the language level because all the services offered and the packs are in English; not very practical for other non-English speaking customers.

InMotion Hosting, despite the fact that the company tends to break through the English market, opens to all users. With impeccable service, she has left to become a key pillar in terms of web hosting.

Buying Guide

We have known the best Joomla hosting for Joomla users, it is required to know how best to make your purchase of the hosting service for your website. Here is our guide:

Know Your Hosting Needs

You can never get the right host without knowing what you need. So before going any further set aside everything (including this guide that you read) and think carefully about your own needs.

  • What kind of website do you build?
  • Do you need something simple and unique (a Joomla blog, for example)?
  • Do you want Windows applications?
  • Do you need a special version of the software (eg PHP)?
  • Does your website require special software?
  • How big is the volume of web traffic?

Here are some of the main questions you really need to answer on your own, allowing you to get a quick picture of what you want to do with your website now and for the next 12 months.

If You are Totally New...

For beginners, the basic rule is to always kick-off small with an excellent shared hosting account. Shared hosting accounts are always easy to maintain, cheap, and sufficient for most new sites. In addition, you can always upgrade to a VPS or dedicated hosting at a later stage as your site grows larger.

What to look for in a host?

1. Server Reliability/Availability Scores

Nothing is more important than having a 24 × 7 web host. You need a good web host running on a powerful server and whose network connections are stable. 99.5% and above is the recommended availability score; anything less than 99% is unacceptable.

There are several ways to get information about the uptime of the host. One way to do this is with server monitoring tools; many of these tools are free to test and are very good to use, such as basic state, host tracker, site uptime etc...

2. Server Upgrade Options

On a rough estimate, a shared hosting account should be enough to support a properly optimized Joomla website with 30,000 - 40,000 unique monthly visitors. You should manage a shared host if you can limit your simultaneous database connections below 20 (that's why I said it's always better to start with shared hosting if you're new).

However…

If you expect your website to grow over the next two to three years, you should consider choosing a web host with room to grow. By growth, I mean upgrading your web host, from shared hosting to private or dedicated virtual servers, for more memory capacity, processing power, disk storage, and better security features.

3. Add-ons domains (additional domains)

Domain names are so cheap that it's hard to resist having more than one. Personally, I have more than 10 domain names in my accounts. And I'm not the only one.

To accommodate these additional domains, we need additional hosting space. And that's why it's important to have a web hosting account that allows you to add multiple domains.

Generally, most budgeted shared hosting companies allow at least 25 addon domains in a single account today, but you can never be sure. A few years ago, I was carefree, and I registered on a host that allows only one domain. And, I owned more than 10 domains parked at that time. Do not repeat my mistake - be sure to check the domain's capacity before making a purchase.

4. Price: Hosting Registration vs. Renewal Cost

Hosting offers especially shared hosting, are generally very cheap on registration fees but charge a lot more for renewals.

It is an industry standard.

Unless you're ready to circle between two or three hosts every two years, there's no way to avoid costly renewal costs.

In general, any shared hosting that is priced below $ 10 / month is acceptable, but you may have a lower tolerance. So, to avoid any unpleasant surprises, you should check the TOS and make sure you agree to the renewal prices before registration.

5. Refund Policy

  • If you choose to cancel your host during the trial period, does the company provide a full refund?
  • What is the refund policy of the hosting company after the trial session?
  • Is there a cancellation fee?

Here are some fundamental questions to ask before registering.

It's important to know that your hosting provider is managing customer repayments, so you do not have to waste too much money when things go wrong.

Some hosting companies charge a high cancellation fee when users decide to cancel their account during the trial period. Avoid these hosting companies at all costs. On the other hand, some hosting companies provide money back guarantees whenever you can request a prorated refund after your trial period.

6. Cron Jobs, Auto Script Installer, .htaccess and SSI

I'm always surprised that some web hosts still do not offer these basic hosting features these days. You need Cron for daily operations, Auto Script Installer (like Simple Scripts, Fantastico, Quick Installer, Installatron, Softaculous etc.) to facilitate installations and updates of web applications; .htaccess access for security / page / etc redirects, Server Side Include (SSI) for a quick and less stressful site maintenance (most especially when creating a static site), and FTP access for easy file transfer.

Unless you register on a specialized web host like WP Engine and Presidium, otherwise these basic features are essential. You should not choose hosting companies that do not provide them. Ignore disk space and data transfer capacity (for now). Disk space and data transfers are hardly a significant comparison factor for buyers, especially if you are new today.

First, if you check, almost all shared hosting providers offer "unlimited" storage and data transfers. While the term "unlimited" is nothing more than a marketing incentive; web hosting receives a lot more than enough in data transfer and storage capacity. (In most cases, RAM and CPU power limit the use of an unlimited hosting account.)

Secondly, if you think about it, disk storage and bandwidth matter little for an average website owner these days. Images can be stored on Flickr; files and documents on Google Doc, videos on YouTube and Vimeo, big data files on the cloud.

So in conclusion, you do not need to worry so much about your hosting storage or bandwidth yet.

7. E-commerce Service Features

  • Do you have an e-commerce website?
  • Do you use a specific shopping cart software?
  • Do you need to process business transactions on your website?
  • Do you need special technical support?
  • If so, it is important that you choose a web host with enough e-commerce features.

SSL certification, dedicated IP and one-click basket software installation are just some of the essential features/media you'll need.

8. An easy-to-use hosting control panel

A friendly and functional hosting control panel is very, very important. No matter whether it's a cPanel or Plesk control panel or a third party, everything is fine as long as it is user-friendly and has all the necessary functions. Without an adequate control panel, you will be left at the mercy of the hosting technical support staff; even if all you need is some basic server changes.

9. Account Suspension: What are the Limitations?

Here's a tip that most evaluation sites will not tell you: Hosting companies will pull the plug and will suspend your account if you use too much processor power (yes, unlimited hosting is limited) or break the rules. So, before registering on a web host, it is important that you read the rules.

Knowing the limitations of your account helps you understand two things:

  • How generous (or miserly) is your preselected web host - should you go with this web host or another host with looser restrictions?
  • How transparent is your hosting company; Can you trust the words that come out of your hosting company? The honest hosting company will normally have very clear guidelines on account limitation.

10. Environmental Friendliness

Having an eco-friendly web host is the main concern of some webmasters. According to scientific studies, a web server produces on average more than 630 kg of CO2 (which is a lot!) And consumes 1,000 kWh of energy a year. A green host, on the other hand, theoretically produces zero CO2. There is indeed a huge difference between a green host and a non-ecological host.

If you care about the environment and want to reduce your carbon footprint, choose a host that runs on renewable energy (or at least one host that compensates for its energy consumption via green certificates).

11. Branded Email

If you want to host email accounts with your website, you must check the email feature before signing up. Most hosting companies will come with the option of hosting your own email (something like This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.), but hey, it's always better to check and be sure of that.

In case the messaging feature is not provided, no problem. There are many ways to own an email account on your own domain. Google Email Apps, for example, is free and simple: you receive the first 10 email accounts for free and $ 5 / account/month.

12. Backup of the Site (Backup)

There are times when a site crashes; maybe a hacker has entered your website and replaced your index.php file, or your entire database has been affected, or the server has had a serious hard drive failure.

If your hosting provider performs regular site backups, there is nothing to fear when these incidents occur. Your hosting provider should be able to restore your website completely (or at least a large part) in no time.

On backups, here are some key questions to ask your web host:

  • Does your hosting provider regularly provide full backups?
  • Can site backup be easily done via the control panel?
  • Can you create an automatic backup of your site easily via a cron job or another program?
  • Can you easily restore your backup files (so you do not have to wait for support staff to do it for you in the event of a disaster)?

13. Online Assistance 24/7?

Personally, I prefer live chat or even better the phone call; and I prefer the web hosting company with full documentation (so I can just read and solve the problems myself). However, it's just me. You may prefer support by e-mail or phone. What you want is someone who can throw you a lifeline instantly when you press the SOS button and all that is really important.
