  15. However, you have to know the pros and cons of each type of web hosting before you can
    ascertain which web hosting plan is most suitable for
    you. High quality hosting providers will have a guaranteed 100% uptime because they have redundant servers in
    secondary locations to assure that access to the sites, which are being
    hosted, is uninterrupted, even in the case of equipment failure or some type of
    emergency or disaster. Any small or big company
    can get a chance of coming online.
