Peter Griffin said it best:
“It doesn’t matter if you’re black or white… the only color that really matters is green.”
All business owners want to do two things: Make Money and Save Money.
As a business owner, you probably already know how to make money. So, if you’re scratching your head wondering how you can save money, web hosting is one of the areas where you can really cut back on your costs – If you do it the right way.
Your company’s IT service is extremely important. Since the majority of businesses are run online these days, protecting your IT infrastructure is equivalent to protecting your company as a whole. It’s equally important to keep in mind that picking a Cloud hosting provider based on the cheapest price point won’t always save you money in the long haul. For instance, imagine what would happen to your business’ online presence if your website suddenly shut down? While you want to save money on web hosting, you shouldn’t sacrifice security and scalability (the ability to adapt to rapid changes in demand, by dynamically adding or removing cloud resources based upon performance metrics) by opting for the cheapest provider.
Choosing Your Cloud Hosting Needs
When deciding what type of web hosting to use, a good first step is to figure out your IT budget. First, figure out how much you are currently spending on your IT needs. Then, figure out how much you can afford to spend for the year.
