Choosing the Right Forum Hosting Company

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


There are two ways when it comes to making choices. First is the hasty way in which decision is made rather haphazardly; other is the wise way in which different provisions and aspects are evaluated, and only when they are found satisfactory, decision is made. The concept also stands righteous when it comes to choosing a forum hosting company. The right hosting firm is the one that promises its clients the best of the following points;

Transparency in services
A forum owner wishes to partner with a company that can lay groundwork for the platform to attain wider reach and popularity. The same cannot be achieved with cap on concurrent connections or server processes. If there is cap, the number of users that can connect with the forum at the same time is very limited. The same happening without the knowledge of forum owner limits the growth possibilities of the forum. Hence, best forum hosting partner is always transparent and keeps in touch to update the client about the status of the hosting account. If forum has outgrown shared hosting, then, options for the upgrade are highlighted in most urgent manner.
Uptime Commitment
Uptime is defined as the measure of the time a machine has been operating without any reboot or crash. For forums, good uptime is very important as users are interacting with the platform all around the clock. So, if there is considerable downtime, then, forum users struggle to perform basic functions. A company that promises anything above 99 percent uptime is worth praise; if it also underlines reimbursements in case of deviations, then, one can be sure that he had stumbled on agood forum hosting company.
Backup and safety issues
Forum owner is always concerned about issues of database backup and safety. It is better to partner with a forum hosting company that takes care of the vbulletin db error and provides backup for long durations than a firm that doesn’t make mentioned arrangements. Hourly backup, provision of archives and restoration is critical for forum owners. URLjet is one firm that offers archives data for a whole year. This goes on automatically as the forum grows its user base and gains popularity. Both backup and safety issues form an important part of choosing a hosting company.
Reliability and technical aspects
A server that plays hosts to 600 to 900 sites is bound to struggle when it comes to efficiency. A server shouldn’t be teeming with such large number if it wishes to lay claim to the tag of ‘best’. Around 100 websites are more than enough if all of them have to work efficiently. In addition to that, the server needs to be a powerful enterprise boasting advanced technology in terms of data storage across hard drives. A powerful machine like RAID-10 promises high read/write time and also improves forum’s fetch speed. So, such technical details and reliability does matters in a dedicated server forum company.
Focus on satisfaction
If a product or service doesn’t offer the promised satisfaction, then, there has to be provision of reimbursement. Only companies that have utmost confidence in their offering propose money back guarantee. URLjet is one forums hosting firm that brings 30-day money back guarantee for its clients if they are not satisfied with the services.  
In the same way, support to third party script and upgrade arrangements are also crucial factors. So, it can be said that the right forum hosting company is one that stands with its clients and takes care of every critical aspect. If a forums hosting firm cannot promise reliability, uptime and un-capped service, then, your forum is always at risk. So, it is better to choose wisely than hastily.
