And yes, the number of hosting companies is also shooting up. However, with the upsurge in the number of hosting companies, scrupulous website owners have a tough time choosing the best web hosting provider in Nepal.

    In our mission to help you make a better decision, we always try to drop your confusion to some extent and help you choose the best. In this article, we are making you get the concept of web hosting, the criteria of a good hosting provider, and the top ten best web hosting providers in Nepal.

    After buying a hosting package, if you are planning to buy a domain. Then, it’s profitable and reliable to take a .com.np domain for free.

    What is web hosting?

    Web hosting is an online service that lets organizations and individuals publish a website or web page onto the internet by providing necessary infrastructures. In simple words, web hosting is a computer where people or organizations store their websites.

    A web hosting company is a company that rents its servers or computers to store the website of an individual or organization and provides an internet connection so that the user can access your website and its content.

    After the web hosting company provides you the service, your website is stored or hosted on special computers called servers. When a user with an internet connection wants to view your website, they can type the website address or the domain into their browser. The user computer will then connect to the server, and the server delivers the web pages to the user through the browser.

    What makes a hosting provider good?

    Many hosting companies have started their service in Nepal, but choosing the best one may not be easy. To have a successful business, one must select the best web hosting service. So here we provide you some criteria that a good web hosting must have to give a better service to both the owner and the users.

    But before starting, you should always know what services and features you want from the service provider. Features provided by the web hosting company differ from each other and costs accordingly.

    Below are some of the things to consider that makes a hosting provider good:

    Uptime
    One of the most important things a good web hosting company should have is its Uptime; it is also known as availability. It is the measure of the percent of the time your website is up and available to visitors. More closer to the 100 percent uptime, the better. A good web hosting company will deliver a high percentage of Uptime.

    Loading Speed
    Another critical factor for good web hosting is the speed at which your website loads and functions. A slow loading site loses visitors and affects the ranking of the website. 

    Data Security
    Security is most important when you are working with technology, and it is also a major concern in web hosting. A good web hosting company uses standard security measures against cyberattacks.

    Customer Support
    Whenever you need support from the server, a good hosting company should always offer live support.

    Payment methods
    If you are hosting an e-commerce site or your site has e-commerce functionality, the customer’s personal and payment information should be a big concern. For this, a hosting company should support Single Socket Layer (SSL) or Transport Layer Security (TLS).

    Scalability
    It is an advanced feature where a hosting company can scale up and scale down the performance according to the demand.

    Bandwidth
    Apart from the speed, bandwidth is another crucial feature of good hosting. Bandwidth in website hosting is the volume of data your website can transfer to the visitor of your website in a given amount of time. To have more bandwidth means that more website data can move at one time. 

    The amount of bandwidth your website has determined how fast your website can deliver its content to your visitors during peak traffic times. Another critical thing to know is that often hosting companies advertise their service as unlimited bandwidth, but in reality, there is no such thing as unlimited bandwidth. Just because under regular use, the sites on the shared server never use all the available bandwidth; they prefer to say it as unlimited bandwidth to appeal to the customers.

    cPanel
    cPanel is a popular Linux-based control panel for web hosting accounts that lets you manage services in a single place. It enables you to manage your web hosting account with maximum efficiency. Installing WordPress, managing domains, and billing accounts are easy via cPanel.

    Storage space
    The web hosting company provides various storage options depending on your requirement. A single-page website may need less storage compared to multipage websites. So, it is essential to know the amount of storage your website needs to make the decision easy and correct.

    Monthly traffic
    Some of the hosting company provides service with monthly traffic limit. So after you have reached the limit, it will stop displaying your website or charge an additional fee for the extra visitor. So, it is always better to talk about it in detail before choosing the best web hosting company. 

    1. Email: A good web hosting company should provide good working email support to provide the service according to the requirement.
    2. Transfer of existing websites: If you are a starter, you may not need to worry about the transfer. But if you have an existing website and want to transfer it to the new web hosting service, a good hosting company should do it.

    Ease of use
    A good hosting server should be easy to use to update your content on the website and manage it. Otherwise, you may require a technician to get the job done, which costs you an extra penny.

    Compliance
    Your web hosting company should assure you of how it will protect the data collected by your website. It should be clear about the data encryption, SSL certificate support, and the hosting platform’s security.

    How safe is web hosting in Nepal?

    A safe web hosting is vital if you own an online store or host any website that has to deal with private information. Thus, VPS (Virtual Private Server) hosting or dedicated servers are considered the most secure hosting. Some security features like SSL certificates, spam filters, CDNs, firewalls, and attack protection are offered by almost all web hosting companies in Nepal. 

    To sum up, almost all web hosting companies in Nepal have adopted some safety measures while some have really good security services.

    Drawbacks of Webhosting provider in Nepal

    Despite the convenience and affordable web hosting service in Nepal, they also have drawbacks, making hosting a grueling process. Those web hosting companies who advertise their service do not maintain professionalism after becoming their customers. Sometimes, they also take time to respond to your problems. 

    On the other hand, other countries have already made cloud hosting their priority, but only a few hosting companies in Nepal have adopted it. Also, there are not enough data centers in Nepal; however, Worldlink is building 14 new data centers in Nepal

    If we look at the bright side, the web hosting service is easily accessible, but we still have to compromise with the available services.

    Verdict
    Apart from the above list, there are numbers of hosting companies that may meet your requirements. Since we have also mentioned some of the criteria for a good hosting company, you may now be capable of making a better decision.
