Cost and budgeting for a website may be one of the common dilemma that many potential buyers will go through before making any decisions, for what has been decided will determined what they will be getting for months or even years as a result from a bound contract from their purchased web hosting services. Whether a web hosting service is purchased in local or overseas company, the main comparison that puts the weight on the buyer’s decision is often the cost. But does cost actually equate the effectiveness in the post conversion of currency, duration bound by the contract, communication flexibility and more important reliability.
Many people would delve into the market of web hosting services offered by the overseas companies compared to what is available to them in local market for they consider the price offered by overseas hosting to be considerably cheaper than usual. It’s not uncommon to notice advertisements on search engines or some websites that features some seemingly irresistible price tag of web hosting service. These captivating prices of web hosting ranges from $7 – $10 USD per month, which would sums up as about $124 per year, an equivalence of about RM400 per year, plus or minus.
Well other commitment buyers usually missed out on these attractive advertisements of $7 – $10 USD per month of web hosting is the fine line of contract bound for months or even years that’s written on the terms and conditions of such ‘sweet treat’. Imagine a web hosting of $10 USD per month that is bound 2 years that would be a total of $248 equivalent to RM800. Not something most have anticipated, but these differences or similarity would differ in how they would get their support and the reliability of their services.
To do the math, it is makes not much of difference to purchase local or offshore when a duration of usage of commitment is bound in these attractive prices. And when that happens you might as well support the local web hosting services that gives you better support, and flexibility of service given the time zone is the same as yours.
