Top Four Managed Hosting Issues and How to Avoid Them
1) Looking into the and hosting plans that are low priced and/or free. This is a common trap a user will find themselves in. The offer is just too good to pass up. The offer may seem too good to be true, but is it? In most cases, yes it is. The low-priced operations are for the smaller entities. They can not work with state-of-the-art companies or people who are top-of-the-line. Keep this in mind the next time you see one.
Take into account what sort of company you are and your system build. I know you want to keep the costs down low, but this is a trap. It may be in your best interest to spend the extra money for the plan or package deal with the cloud.
2) A price quote may not reveal the plan’s true intentions. You need to keep on top of this. Pay close attention to any sort of offers which represent one flat rate. This flat rate may or may not be true. There may be something else attached you are not be told. Talk to the support staff. Find out from them if the rate specified is the true deal. Most of the time they will be honest with you when asked. They will not tell you willing, though. They want to make money too. You have to be smarter than them in this instance.
3) Do the claims do what they say they do. Question any kind of claim you feel lacks a backbone. Do this before you spend the money. The claim better have a backbone of some kind, or you are being taken and it is a spun offer.
4) Check out the scale of your company. Most companies start out small. The company then tries to grow bigger and bigger. Will the scale of the plan be worth it? Will you be able to adjust your scalability to the growing needs of your business? More users need to be invested in this. They spend all this money, then they realize they need to spend more money. Your plan should be taking care of this, without you having to take the steps to do it. Find out.
