Web hosting is about more than prices alone. Any business that requires a sustainable web presence, will look for reliability, service-orientation, performance and understanding of the market.
Hetzner has demonstrated success in this department, with consecutive awards both as a Top 300 National Growth Company as well as Top 50 ICT Company. Incidentally, our primary means of marketing is through word-of-mouth.
A few items to consider when comparing Hetzner to other providers:
- Is the hosting done locally or internationally? This is important in satisfying your target market.
- If the target market is international and price is particularly important, there are numerous, well-established hosting companies that should be considered.
- Further, the price-benefit ratio of international vs. local hosting cannot be directly compared with each other. Our local bandwidth rates in the current telecommunications environment are not internationally competitive by a long margin.
- Consider carefully the length of contracts proposed.
- How are the servers connected to the Internet. Factors such as bandwidth management and capped connections are designed to limit the risk of higher bandwidth usage. (We own and manage our own data centres. Hetzner has an uncapped, redundant fibre link to MTN, of which we use approximately 50% at peak times).
- Consistent service is always a consideration and the proof is in the pudding.
- Price and features mix. Be cautious to discern good value rather than purchasing a combination that leads to inferior infrastructure performance as time progresses.
There are many service providers in the market that are more expensive than Hetzner and some that are cheaper. We care passionately about our service to our customers and are committed to providing reliable, quality products.
