So why is customer support all that important in a hosting service? Simple! Imagine your self working hard on a site and you finally get a quite popular one with an impressive amount of daily visitors. Let’s say it’s a very popular forum. And all of a sudden system gets crash. So you have to come up with silly reasons to tell to the visitors, why is the site down and why can’t they access their accounts. Most importantly you don’t know if it’s permanent or is it just some temporary down time. And believe me, by the experience that I have, when that happens you are in quite a pickle. All of that can be avoided if you have customer service. They will tell you what is wrong, when will the server be up again etc.
So how do I find a hosting service with customer service?
Well just search the web for a bit. Now a day almost every hosting website has that already in the cheapest hosting package. After all you wouldn’t want to be stranded all alone in a situation like that. Because of such technological advancement and lots of researches, there are many sites and companies, which promise you everything. The customer service can even serve you like a critic. If the company doesn’t provide it to all of the packages, than that means it’s not a too good company, now is it? How can they host servers for people and sites if they can’t even manage some customer service and support?
Usually sites with a lot of money and a big capital have such things installed because the consulting staff is not cheap at all, as a result to that we can conclude that companies with customer support care about their clients. The consulting staff is paid like normal workers, even more if they have good knowledge and that’s how you know that you won’t be left down. So what does it cost you to search the web for a new and better service with some consulting involved in it, having help when you need it and finding a good hosting company just for you?
But don’t be fooled. All customer services aren’t all that good. A quick response and resolution time of the crew is a must when talking about quality. When you talk to the staff they have to make you feel good, and can communicate fast, clear and without complications.
Still don’t understand the benefits of the whole thing?
Think of it in this way. The Customer service is actually like a hand that guides you, so you can’t actually make mistakes. The only mistake that you can do is at the very beginning. That is choosing a wrong hosting service or a free package, that doesn’t include the support. So just don’t be lazy and search for a better company, a company with pizzazz, a company WITH CUSTOMER SERVICE that won’t let you down.
One of my favourite hosting companies that give pretty good support is vodahost.com.
