Four Tips for Choosing a New Hosting Provider in 2022

Is 2022 the year when you finally change hosting plans for your website? Simply put, there’s just too many good hosts out there for anyone to be dissatisfied with their level of service.

Here are 4 things to look for this year as you consider your hosting provider options:

1. Overall Performance Options

If you’re unhappy with your current host’s performance, look for one that’s transparent about the tools they will provide.

When it comes to uptime, you’ll want to look for a host that can promise something very close to 100%. Anything under 99.9% (a couple of minutes of downtime a day) is probably not worth your time, as there are too many great hosting options out there.

When it comes to overall performance, things to look for in your host are a robust network, up-to-date technology, as well as integration with a reputable CDN.

At CanSpace, we have over 10 Tbps of network capacity available in our data center to support our customers. We have multiple backbone bandwidth carriers, redundant storage, and our entire infrastructure is fully redundant at multiple levels.

2. Security

For all the progress we’ve made on web security, hackers have made the same, and website security is as big of an issue as ever this year. What you’re looking for in a hosting provider is to be the first line of defense — filtering out threats so only a few make it to your site, where your own security features can take over.

All CanSpace hosting services include protection against all types of DDoS attacks. A 160 Gbps anti-DDoS infrastructure has been set up in our data center to mitigate up to 480 Gbps of traffic, 24/7.

3. Customer Service

Let’s face it, anyone can purchase server space and be a website host. (We write about our own reseller options here. What really separates good hosts is the quality of the infrastructure and the quality of customer service.

At CanSpace we pride ourselves on our superior customer support. We aim to answer all inquiries within 20 minutes, although most are answered in less than 5. Our support staff are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

4. Easy-to-Use Features

Look for a host with a helpful suite of tools that will enable you to enhance your site with features you want.

At CanSpace, our automatic script-installation software makes installing scripts like WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, osCommerce, and many many others, as simple as clicking a few buttons. Our free site builder, included with all web hosting plans, lets you get your site up and running with no previous design experience.

At CanSpace Solutions, we’re always on the quest to become a better hosting provider. We’d like to think our priorities show in our customer satisfaction.
