As a blogger, you should be aware of a few things about web hosting that could affect your blog. Most bloggers don't even think twice about their hosting company, but the truth is, if your hosting company fails and your blog goes down, it is going to look really bad and could potentially risk losing a fraction of the audience. So to ensure that doesn't happen to you, we are going to cover 5 different things you should look into while shopping for web hosting.

Dedicated Servers
If you can, getting a dedicated server is highly recommended. They are a little pricey, but you won't have to deal with any of the hassles or risks that come with shared hosting. You have much more control over it, you will have higher security, less risks of it crashing, much higher load speeds, and plenty more. Although your blog might be new and not have much traffic now, in the future, you should be hoping to have large amounts of traffic.

Loading Speeds
How fast your blog loads is a big deal because you never know when someone will be using their phone or other device to check out your content. If they have to wait a while to load the content, they might just end up moving to the next blog. If you plan to be on a shared server, you should check and see what type they are using and if it can handle the amount of people they are placing on it. Some companies will try and jam pack to many people onto one server, then the server reacts extremely slow because of all of the activity and could even end up going down if too much traffic is going through.

There are ways you can decrease loading speeds on your end, but you should ensure that the hosting provider can get your site up as fast as possible. Not only does slow loading speeds hurt the user experience, but search engines rank based on how fast you load, so if you loading slow, you're going to be hurting your SEO efforts.It is always best to read reviews like web hosting hub reviews and bluehost reviews  by webhost analysis. These are just some of the reviews from real customers that you can read to help you get the possible host your website needs. There are still a lot of available web hosting reviews that you can find on the web.

Support
An important aspect of web hosting that is usually overlooked is the support that is given by the company. If you ever need help with making changes or updating something, you shouldn't need to wait multiple days to have it done. You should have an easy way of contacting support and get a response in less than 24 hours. If your blog ends up going down for some reason, your goals should be to get it back up and running as soon as possible. If their support is doing what they are supposed to, they should have no problem hooking you back up.

Pay the Right Price
Unfortunately, there are a lot of hosting companies out there that will try to get you to pay double or even triple the amount than you should. It is safe to say that staying away from any overpriced companies is a good idea. At the same time, you don't want to just choose a company because they are extremely cheap. They might be cheap because their services are that bad. You should choose a reliable company that will provide good services at a fair price.

Other Features
Web hosting not only offers you ways to get your site on the internet, but they usually have other benefits and features to offer to try and convince you to choose their company. An easy example of an extra feature would be E-mail. You will probably want to have your blog's own e-mail system, so you should make sure that it is offered as a free addition. There are plenty of different benefits you can get from different companies, so shop around and make sure you are getting everything you need to make your blog as best as it can be.

There are other aspects of hosting companies you could look at, but as a blogger these are the 5 things that will affect you the most. If you are still having trouble finding the right company, just look up some customer reviews, they will give you a better idea of what you are about to get yourself into.
