The advantages of having your hosting servers local

When choosing your hosting provider there are a few things to consider, however, one that is often overlooked is the location.

Having your hosting provider based locally to you is a lot more beneficial than you might think, here are a few reasons why.

Size

While it may seem logical to go for the provider with the biggest site and the most clients, this is often the biggest cause of problems.

Local providers tend to have smaller client bases which result in a far better quality of customer service, more time is easily allocated to you for any issues you might be having or just simply for a call.

An example of this is here at Datacentreplus plus we offer 24x7x365 specialist technical support able to provide advice, guidance and find and fix issues swiftly.

Access

Having physical access to your server site is an amazing asset, being able to tour where your server will be held and seeing the technology they have in place gives you the best sense of how capable they’re and whether it is the right place for you.

We always recommend seeing a site in person to get the best experience.  However, we have also created a virtual data centre tour, click the link to see our facilities: Virtual Data Centre Tour

Trust

Entrusting a company with all of your data can be a daunting process.  However, being able to meet who will be taking on the task and everyone else adds extra reassurances. Local providers tend to have more compact teams so you will usually be introduced to multiple members and levels of the business rather than the appointed front of house staff.

Contacts

Being with a local hosting provider often provides plenty of networking opportunities with local businesses using the same service and can even facilitate connections between these.
