For the next five days (ending on Christmas Day) I will write a really short tip to finding the best web hosting.
Today’s Tip: When purchasing web hosting you may want to consider purchasing more than 1 year at a time. There are many benefits to purchasing multiple years worth of hosting at a time:
1st – You can save money. Normally web hosting companies (such as HostMonster) offer $1-$2 a month discount for ordering multiple years of hosting. This can save you $25 or more in the long run; you know the old saying, “A penny saved is a penny earned.”
2nd – Google tends to give slightly better search rankings to websites that are registered for multiple years. A website that is registered for a long period of time typically signals a legit website unlike a “made for spam” site that typically is only registered for only a few months or years.
3rd – It is less of a hastle. Receiving notifications each year reminding you that you owe money can grow frustrating; by purchasing multiple years at a time you have less hastle in the long run.
** In closing: If you looking to start an online business or if you already own a business and are looking for an online presence, it would be wise to spend a few extra bucks to buy long term web hositng.
