20 Point Checklist for Vetting a Managed Hosting Provider

Web and digital agencies are hired for what they do best - building highly responsive, well-thought out, and aesthetically pleasing websites and web applications. They are NOT hired for their server and hosting expertise. For the agency, hosting is simply a means to an end — overshadowed by the immense pressure to, “Go live and get paid!” It’s no wonder then that agencies are often left holding the buck in the frustrating cycle of finger pointing, resulting from slow load times, network downtimes, and security attacks.

The beauty of partnering with a managed hosting provider is that you specifically don’t need to know about your service, how it works, or what parts it is made up of – all those details are taken care of for you. In fact, a really good provider should do their job so well that you don’t even realize everything they’re doing to ensure the healthy upkeep of your site – which is fantastic, until you start to wonder if maybe you could get your service cheaper elsewhere.

To the untrained eye, many hosting companies look the same. They offer products that appear similar, have similar features, and even similar guarantees. But looks can be deceiving. Once you scratch the surface, it becomes clear that all hosting isn’t created equal, and some hosting companies are better aligned with your business than others.

This guide is designed to help you make an informed decision when choosing a hosting company for your business
