How to Avoid Hosting Providers with Hidden Fees

We just can’t go out there and pick up any web hosting provider that is available. We need do a comprehensive homework, before we settle down with a particular company. Doing prior researches helps in finding the right service provider that can offer a fair deal. But do companies really serve customers with great, cost-effective plans? Certain enterprises persuade you with their swaying words and get you to buying their service, only to realize the hidden charge later that’s been added to your recurring bill.


If you come across unusually low-priced VPS, dedicated servers and shared hosting plans, they might place a value in the future. It is similar to purchasing cheap products online and then paying huge amount as shipping charge. However, the bottom line is you need to be attentive and avoid those unwanted expenses.


Expensive Set up Fees

Advanced hosting companies use automated system to deploy new accounts instantly with minimum disruptions. However, shared hosting requires some sort of manual set up that consumes time as well as money to create the complex environment. But there is no need to spend extra for the set up. Best hosting providers would do it for no charge.


Unwanted Software Costs

You might be recommended to install additional software, even if you don’t need it. This is just a mere marketing tactic to sell you software and make money of it. Certain companies compel their customers to subscribe to a trial software while signing up. Make sure you don’t sign up for such deals and avoid clicking blindly on any links.


Check Uptime Score

Uptime ensures to maintain your website available to visitors all the while. Low uptime score would affect your web performance and eventually, business revenue. Before you host with any company, make sure to find out their service quality. If it delivers poor web speed and outage issues, it’s better to drop the idea of choosing the organization.


Cancellation Fees

Not all companies provide a full refund in case of cancellation. If you call of your services, the hosting provider may charge you considerable cancellation fees, which you certainly don’t want to spend. Go to their website and check for cancellation and refund policies beforehand so that you avoid ending up paying huge unwanted charges. No matter how cost-effective the hosting plans are, stay away from hosting providers with suspicious refund policies.


Usage Fees

When you sign up for a hosting service, you use their hardware resources such as bandwidth, RAM, CPU, and hard disk drive. Your web visitors consume these resources when they land on your website. If you use a shared hosting, you are allotted a specific volume of basics and when you exceed your allowance then, your hosting company will add the extra amount to your bill. Dedicated hosting comes with unlimited resources, so the chances of exhausting them is possibly low.


To sum it up, be smart when you purchase hosting plans. Research and then jump to a conclusion, or else you know the consequences.
