HostWinds had dreadful 99.47% of uptime in last November with more than 3h of downtime. The same kind of inconsistency appeared in December 2018. That’s too much downtime when you consider the potential lost traffic and sales – especially before Christmas. Their start of the year has improved with an uptime of 99.94%, but that is still not good enough compared to the industry standard.

The Web hosts below offer either dedicated or managed hosting services, or both. Dedicated hosting allows users to rent a server and use all its resources. Dedicated customers are responsible for server operation (reboots, etc.) and control OS and software, etc. Managed hosting offers the same resource benefits, but the company manages the server - you contact the company when things need doing (reboots, etc.).



Also, if your site uses more bandwidth than you’ve subscribed for, they’ll charge you for overuse. But so do most other providers. Therefore, it’s always good to keep accurate estimates of the traffic on your site. Bandwidth is not directly correlated to traffic, it depends on the simplicity and usage of your site. A simple website with 2-3 pages and with approximately 1000 visitors/mo would need around 1GB of bandwidth.
