    Can anyone recommend me a good and reliable cloud hosting service for a small business? My current hosting contract runs out in a few weeks and I do NOT wish to renew with them again.

    Why are you switching? Did something bad happen?

    Bad customer service. Late responses. Overcharging me for a ton of stuff that I didn’t sign up for. Overall a terrible experience.

    I’m tempted, but I don’t want to get in trouble talking trash about another company online. Let’s just leave them as anonymous, that’s all I have to say about that.

    If you’re looking for recommendations, our company uses Cirrus Tech Ltd. and we can’t recommend them enough. Great customer service, fast response times, and very fair prices for what they’re offering. Exactly the opposite of your previous provider.

    We were using another provider before Cirrus, but they helped us make a smooth transition. After that, we don’t need to call on them a lot, but whenever we did, they were always quick to help.!

    Are you using traditional hosting or cloud hosting? If you’re about to switch hosting providers, this would be a good time for you to switch from traditional hosting to cloud hosting instead.

    We used to have in-house servers. They used to go down sometimes. Initially, we did not really have a plan to get them back online quickly. This became a huge problem for us. Even when we had a plan, it wasn’t so easy. Time wasted is money wasted too. We eventually made the switch to cloud hosting and what a big difference it made! The cloud servers dramatically reduced the negative impacts that are normally associated with the loss of service.

    In fact, some cloud services use backup power generation, so you may want to confirm this or ask this before you use someone’s service. This has the added advantage of information still being sent despite utility failures. The good providers also have measures and technology in place so that if something does happen, it kicks in and restarts automatically. That’s really powerful and less disruptive on your business.

    Make sure you ask your provider about their recovery policies before you sign on the dotted line. In fact, the service we use also collects diagnostic information and notifies the technicians of any issues. Recovery is faster, which means accessing information is much easier.
