5 Things to Look For in a Great Cloud Host in 2013

SHARE:


Cloud service providers are beneficial to students, businesses and anyone who wants to safely share and store data on the Internet. Cloud hosting is constantly improving and expanding, and this service has become extremely popular over the last few years. There are hundreds of cloud service providers to choose from. Some services are free, and other services cost a monthly or annual fee. Most services are very similar, and you have many options available to you. It is important, however, to consider the following five aspects when choosing a cloud hosting service.

1. Security


If you are using cloud hosting, then security should be your number one priority. Trust is a large part of using a third party host. Cloud servers allow you to share data with other individuals, but you still need to protect your data online. The best cloud hosting companies offer top notch security and privacy options for their users. If you are considering various cloud hosting services, make sure to review the security ratings of each service. This may help you make a well informed decision, and you can keep your photos, videos, work data and other files secure.

2. Customer Support

Next to security, customer support is a very crucial factor in using cloud hosting services. If you are using cloud hosting for the first time, it is likely that you will have a lot of questions or concerns. Even experienced users need technical support from time to time. If your service is interrupted or your computer crashes, you need to be able to contact customer support as soon as possible. Choose a cloud host that provides friendly, professional customer service that is easy to access by phone or email. If the company you choose has great customer support, then you can feel confident about third party hosting services.

3. Tools and ease of use

Most cloud hosting services have a dashboard where you can upload, view and share data. The layout of this dashboard should be simple to understand and easy for you to share with colleagues, classmates and so on. Most cloud hosting services have basic tools on the dashboard that help you navigate through your stored data. If you choose a company with an easy to use dashboard, it can make cloud storage even more convenient and time saving.

4. Price

Price is important to most companies and individuals who use data storage services. Many cloud hosting services offer free packages, and these packages are limited to about 2 GB to 7 GB of data. When you pay for services, you will get more storage space and other options. Compare and contrast the prices and features that different cloud services provide you, and you will get the most value.

5. Reputation and customer reviews

This may seem trivial, but reading customer reviews can really help you choose the best cloud storage service. Many tech blogs and other websites feature reviews of cloud hosting services. As an added bonus, many of these sites offer side by side reviews and comparisons. This makes it very easy for you to see which companies have great reputations and satisfied customers.
