The Internet is by far the safest bet in today’s world to grow your business. Whether it be for promotion or for sales, the internet has a lot to offer for those who know exactly what they want. There are obviously, a lot of nitty gritties that come along with it. Making a website, deciding where to host it, paying the maintenance, and a whole lot more we’re not even going to get into.
Now while we’re on the topic let’s talk a bit about hosting and hosting services, especially in the case of companies or brands that are new to the entire ecosystem of the webpages and servers and don’t exactly know the ins and outs of the whole system.
How does someone in this situation decide which hosting to go for? How do they decide what is best for their company or not?
Do they go for cloud hosting or shared hosting? What plan to select? What fees to pay?
There are so many questions that come to the mind of a budding entrepreneur, but sadly the answers are few and far in between.
But we believe we have found one such solution today. A comprehensive solution, one can say, to the dilemma a newbie faces when stuck between choosing a hosting service for their budding business.
Newbie, meet HRANK.
HRANK, this is newbie!
Now that we’re done with the formalities, let’s get to actually know what HRANK does and how it can be beneficial for you.
What is HRANK?
As said before HRANK is a service that aims to provide you with ranks! (Who saw that coming?)
What do they rank we hear you ask?
Well, loosely put, HRANK is an online ranking and rating service that ranks Shared Hosting Services based on “Research, analysis and experience” and they do all this for free. It really is something you’ll have to see to believe.
HRANK rates websites out of 10, 10 of course being the highest rating a website can get and then ranks different websites and then proceeds to help you pick which website suits your need the best.
How does it work?
See the thing with shared hosting is that they can either hold more than a thousand websites on a single server, or a just a couple. That is not something that HRANK judges them on.
Running checks on a day to day basis, HRANK is able to provide one of the most accurate results of what websites are running on which servers for how much time(uptime), response time, support and other miscellaneous factors. Let’s take a deeper look at what exactly is taken into accord while judging.
Uptime, in plain and simple words is the amount of time your website is up and running without any issues or shutdowns.
Daily charts prepared by HRANK helps you determine which servers tend to provide the best uptimes for websites and helps you make a well informed decision.
The shorter the response time from the domain on a server provider, the better is its ranking on the HRANK scale.
Now ofcourse we cannot provide a proper “good” response time, but according to the people over at HRANK a response time of around or under 250-300ms is considered “good”.
Posing as potential customers or existing ones, HRANK has managed to gather data on how multiple service providers treat their customers/potential customers and has them all ranked up for you to analyse and select.
Listing down all the features themselves makes us want to jump aboard HRANK and run a few test checks on www.hrank.com and see what they have to say about the service provider of your choice. It is a completely free to use service regardless, but their comprehensive analysis of each host makes it really easy for potential business owners to make the right call when choosing to host their website.
Make sure you check your host on hrank.com before investing!
