How to choose the right hosting provider? A Guide

How to choose the right hosting provider? There are certain key factors which decide whether a hosting provider is good or not.

Factors that indicate a good hosting provider:-

  1. Good support.
  2. Sufficient resources
  3. Less downtime
  4. Easy to manage

 

Let’s now see how do good support indicates that a hosting provider is reliable.

  1. GOOD SUPPORT – You should be able to contact the hosting company via chat or email it’s important because if you need help regarding hosting the company should be reachable quickly! If any error occurs and you aren’t able to solve then the hosting company should do his best in solving it.. Try contacting the support before buying and then ask them for C-PANEL DEMO see if they provide or not most reliable companies will do it.
  2. SUFFICIENT RESOURCES – You should be provided with sufficient resources as per plan. If someone is giving you 1 GB of storage with less RAM at a high price so that’s not fair. You should get enough resources for the amount you paid. Resources not only help an website load fast but also work efficiently. Always compare the hosting company you choose with others so that you get to know that you are getting worth the money you paid.
  3. LESS DOWNTIME – Downtime affects businesses as whenever a customer tries to buy a product from your site and if your website doesnt load or loads slowly, it impacts the sale. Downtime also leaves a bad impression on your first time visitors the people who haven’t seen your site before. So confirm that a hosting company at least provides 99% uptime (99.9 % recommended).Most hosting companies provide at least 99% of uptime. If you choose shared hosting then you might have some downtime recommend cloud hosting if you need more uptime as it bounces your site to another server when there is downtime on the initial server
  4. EASY TO MANAGE – your services should be easy to manage via a single dashboard access, which avoids contacting support for each & everything! You should have C-PANEL shortcuts on your client area so its easy to go anywhere some shortcuts are File Manager, Sub domains, Redirects ETC.

At INSTA HOSTING we have good support via WhatsApp, The support is at your finger tips plus we are too responsive. Are servers has Sufficient resources and we have low or mostly no downtime and its really very easy to manage all your products via the dashboard itself!

Best websites to get FREE Stock images for your blog!

You’ve found your perfect domain, set up your WordPress site, written a few blog posts but now you need images. Unless you are creating your own, you’ll need a good source for stock images! Stock images can be expensive and difficult to manage when it comes to licensing which is why we have created this tier list of the best sites for stock images, free and paid.

  • Unsplash
  • Freepik
  • Gratisography
  • Pixabay
  • Pexels

Unsplash

Unsplash has a large array of free images with very little credit required, as it’s optional to link back to the photographer/graphic designer who produced the photo. Unsplash offers quality over quantity, so searching with a specific keyword is vital.

Unsplash’s search tool is the fastest way to find a picture, but if you have a little time of your hands, check out Collections – groups of photos sorted by other users into themes like Light and Shadow, Street Life, and Into the Wild. You can create your own collections after signing up for an account. They’re ideal for inspiration, or gathering resources for a project.

Freepik

Freepik has a larger selection of options to pick from, whether it’s vectors, stock images or PSD files. Plus it has a free and paid option. Freepik is great for its selection of vectors and stock images but can be a more expensive platform to use.

The photos are consistently high quality, and artists are paid for their contributions. There’s an excellent selection of filters that you can use to find exactly the right stock photo, and you can even upload and existing image to find similar pictures.

Gratisography

This is probably the most unique in terms of selection. The stock images which Gratisography offer are free and are quite quirky and bold. These are less like the stock images you will see at other vendors and they have no copyright restrictions.

Gratisography doesn’t offer as much content as some other free stock photo sites.

Pixabay

Pixabay offers you the ability to use its stock images whilst only politely asking to link to the original creator. As such, these images are entirely free for commercial use and for use in your blog/editing.

Once you’ve found a suitable free stock photo, choose an appropriate resolution (print projects will need a much higher resolution than online ones) and complete a Captcha to download the file. You can cut out the Captcha by signing up for a free account.

The quality of photography isn’t as consistently high as Unsplash, but if you can’t find the free stock photo you need there, Pixabay might be able to help.

Pexels

Pexels is a particularly good choice for web or app designers, with an excellent set of device images that are ideal for displaying interface mockups. A couple of images stray close to stock photo cheesiness (ideas that are tricky to illustrate spelled out with scrabble tiles, for example), but the vast majority are creative and original.

Pexels has a category dedicated to space photography, which looks amazing, but bear in mind that some of the material is from NASA – one of the organizations whose images should only be used in specific contexts.

What is the Procedure for Domain Name Transfer

  1. If I registered a domain name through one registrar, am I allowed to switch to a different registrar?

    Yes, it is your right to transfer your domain name registrations between registrars.

  2. How do I transfer my domain name to a new registrar?

    If you wish to move your domain name from one ICANN-accredited registrar to another, you may initiate the transfer process by contacting the registrar to which you wish to transfer the name. Note that there are certain situations that can prevent a domain name from being transferred, such as if it is subject to a 60-day Change of Registrant lock. See FAQ #8 for more information. Absent any valid reasons a transfer request cannot be processed, the registrar will confirm your intent to transfer your domain name. If you do not respond or return the form to the registrar, your transfer request will not be processed. Please note that as of 25 May 2018, if the gaining registrar cannot access registration data for a name subject to a transfer, then the gaining registrar is not required to obtain the Form of Authorization from the Transfer Contact.

  3. Why can’t I transfer a domain name I just registered to another registrar?

    There are certain situations that can prevent a domain name from being transferred to a different registrar, such as a new registration. Your registrar may deny a transfer request if the domain name is within 60 days of initial registration. Another situation is if the domain name is subject to a 60-day Change of Registrant lock. You cannot transfer a domain name to a different registrar within 60 days of making changes to the registrant name, organization or email address (or the Administrative Contact email address, if there is no registrant email address). At their discretion, some registrars may provide an option for you to opt-out of this 60-day lock period. However, this rule is in place for your protection against unauthorized transfers and the registrar does not have to offer this option. If your ultimate goal is to transfer the domain name, you may want to consider completing the transfer process before changing your contact information.

    Registrars also have the option of denying a transfer request within 60 days from when you last transferred the domain name to a different registrar. You may have the option to change web-hosting providers instead of registrars to avoid the inter-registrar transfer process (and lock) altogether. You may also update your domain name’s nameservers or change the hosting IP address assigned to your domain name. Check with your registrar and/or hosting provider to see what options you have.

  4. I want to move my domain name to someone else.

    It is your right to transfer your domain name registration between registrars. If you wish to move your domain name from one ICANN-accredited registrar to another, you may initiate the transfer process by contacting the registrar to which you wish to transfer the name.

    To transfer your domain name to another registrant, you can initiate a change of registrant by contacting your current registrar. Your registrar will then ask for your confirmation via a secure mechanism (which typically will take the form of an email to the registered name holder). You must provide your confirmation within the number of days set by your registrar (not to exceed 60 days) or your transfer will not proceed. Once your registrar receives confirmation from you, they will process the transfer and notify you and the new registrant once the transfer is completed.

  5. Someone has contacted me to purchase my domain name, what do I do?

    It is up to you to decide if you would like to respond to an offer for the purchase of your domain name. You can transfer your domain name to someone else if you would like. See FAQ#4 above for more information on transferring your domain name to a different Registrant.

  6. The registrar is asking me for a code. Where do I get this? / I don’t know what you mean by authorization/EPP/transfer code and I can’t find it. How do I get this code?

    An Auth-Code (also called an Authorization Code, AuthInfo Code, Auth-Info Code, or transfer code) is a code created by a registrar to help identify the domain name holder and prevent unauthorized transfers (also known as a registrant or registered name holder). An Auth-Code is required for a domain holder to transfer a domain name from one registrar to another.

    Your registrar may allow you, via an online interface tool, to generate and manage your own AuthInfo code. If not, you will need to contact your registrar directly to obtain it. Your registrar must provide you with the AuthInfo code within five (5) calendar days of your request.

  7. What if I don’t know who my registrar is?

    If you don’t know who your current registrar is, you can look it up by performing a search for your domain name at:< https://lookup.icann.org/>. The “Registrar” field shows you who your registrar is.

  8. Why is my registrar refusing to transfer my domain name?

    Your registrar may deny a transfer request in the following limited circumstances:

    1. Evidence of fraud
    2. Reasonable dispute over the identity of the person authorizing the transfer
    3. Domain name is on hold due to payment owed for a previous registration period (including credit card charge-backs)
    4. Express written objection from the domain name holder
    5. Domain name is in “Lock” status (Registrars must provide a readily accessible and reasonable means for name holders to remove the lock status. Contact your registrar for assistance.)
    6. Domain name is within 60 days of initial registration
    7. Domain name is within 60 days of a previous transfer

    Your registrar is required to specify a reason when denying your transfer request unless they are required. Contact either the current registrar or the registrar you wish to transfer to for information on the denial.

    Your registrar must deny a transfer request in the following limited circumstances:

    1. Domain name is the subject of a UDRP proceeding
    2. Domain name is subject to a court order by a court of competent jurisdiction
    3. Domain name is the subject of a TDRP proceeding
    4. Domain name is the subject of a URS proceeding or URS suspension
    5. Domain name is subject to 60-Day Change of Registrant lock
  9. My registrar is charging me a fee to transfer to a new registrar. Is this allowed?

    Yes. Registrars are allowed to set their own prices for this service so some may choose to charge a fee. However, a transfer cannot be denied due to non-payment of this transfer fee. There are other reasons your registrar can deny transfer request. See FAQ #8 above for more information.

  10. My transfer request was denied for a reason not listed above, or I do not agree with the reason my registrar provided. What can I do?

    If you think your request to transfer your domain name was inappropriately denied or you do not agree with the reason (if any) provided by your current registrar for denying your request, you should then submit a formal Transfer Complaint with ICANN.

  11. My domain name has just expired. Can my registrar require me to pay for a renewal before I can transfer the domain name to a new registrar?

    No. You have the right to transfer an expired domain. Registrars are not allowed to deny a transfer due to expiration or nonrenewal, (unless you haven’t paid for a previous registration period).

    However, if the current registrar has begun to delete your domain (i.e., the EPP status code (https://www.icann.org/resources/pages/epp-status-codes-2014-06-16-en) shows the domain in Redemption Grace Period (see also https://www.icann.org/resources/pages/gtld-lifecycle-2012-02-25-en), the name must be restored by your current registrar before it can be transferred. This may result in an additional fee, sometimes referred to as a redemption fee.

  12. My registrar is listed as the Administrative Contact for my domain name and this is preventing my transfer request from being processed. What can I do?

    If you are listed as the Registrant for the domain name, you may ask your new registrar of choice to send the required Form of Authorization to you rather than the listed Administrative Contact.

    You may also update the data associated with the domain name and name a different Administrative Contact. Some registrars offer an online interface tool for you to manage this data yourself; others can make these updates if you contact their customer service.

    Please note, if you decide to update the Administrative Contact email, a 60-day lock will be placed on your domain, if there is not currently a Registered Name Holder email address. You should read the registrar’s terms and conditions carefully before performing any updates or contact your registrar directly for more information.

  13. What can I do if I believe my registrar is in violation of the ICANN Transfer Policy?

    If you believe your registrar is in violation of the ICANN Transfer Policy, you may file a complaint with ICANN by going to: https://forms.icann.org/en/resources/compliance/complaints/transfer/form.

  14. Where can I go if I have a question that is not answered above?

    If you have questions about the ICANN Transfer Policy, please contact us by sending an email to support@instahosting.in
