PHP Hosting is important for businesses and online stores that want to have an interactive and dynamic business website so as to enhance customer experience. PHP is a commonly used scripting language for website development and is simply embedded into HTML. PHP web hosting is very simple and novice users may easily learn the language to develop their websites. It also supports various operating systems such as Windows, Linux, and UNIX etc. and is cheap as compared to ASP. The price for PHP typically comprises of only the required web space and maintenance.

PHP also offers numerous features which cater to the needs of online stores. Some of the advanced tasks performed by PHP include web crawling and database crawling. PHP can also be used to create cookies and save customer information allowing them to reduce the time and effort in filling out forms every time they visit. Therefore, if you are planning to get PHP hosting, here are some important features which need to be considered.

1. Compatibility with different databases

One of the most essential features to be considered while selecting a PHP web hosting is its compatibility and support for different types of databases. It is necessary that your PHP web hosting supports MySQL databases specifically for effective performance.

2. Bandwidth of the Host

If you have an online store, you need good bandwidth to ensure your data is transferred without any hindrances. Before selecting a PHP hosting company, determine the bandwidth offered by the hosting company. The bandwidth will tell how much capacity the company has to offer and what if you need an upgrade. The bandwidth will also show if the hosting company can transport your website data completely or not.

3. Storage Space

A good storage space is important to store the required website data on the host servers. For new businesses, not a lot of storage is required as their needs are not much. However, as the business grows, the customers also increase and so does the requirement for more storage space. Good hosting companies offer enough storage space to cater to the changing needs of the website as the business grows. Therefore, make sure your PHP hosting company is flexible in offering storage space thereby allowing you to meet future business and expansion needs.

4. Customer Support

Sometimes, business owners select a hosting company based on different technical features offered in the hosting plan without having a look at other services of the company. You should know while managing your website, you will have plenty of queries and issues at different times of the day. These issues and queries might only be solved through the customer support of the hosting company. If the hosting company does not offer round the clock customer support via telephone, live chat and emails and does not have a swift response rate, your business will be doomed.

Therefore, if you are looking for a PHP hosting company, bear in mind the above mentioned four features. These features will help you find the best PHP hosting company for your online store.
