In order to be able to get the best hosting for your website, we have to pay attention to a few points. This topic has already been taught in the form of a theme called Principles of Choice. Now, after we make a purchase, we need to take some measures. This article will fully discuss the set of actions required after purchasing a cPanel host. These include specifying the structure and specifications of the hosts, which will ensure correct purchasing. If there is any inconsistency or problem, it can be addressed to the hosting company. If the problem is not resolved, the 30-day repayment can be used to cancel the service and receive a payment.
The checklist of the host info
First, it is necessary to compare the delivered hosting specification with the specification for the purchased plan. This issue can be checked under the following checklist:
- Checking volume and traffic
- Subscriber Number, Domain, Domain Park, Database, Emails, &…
- Check the share of hardware and software resources
- Check the number of permissions allowed for the database
- Check web server used for hosting
- Check SNI support and free SSL certificate
- Check the status of the hosts with the IP server
Checking volume and traffic
After entering the cPanel, you will see the disk usage and bandwidth options to check the volume and traffic and compare with the amount declared in the ordered plan. Traffic is usually calculated on a monthly basis and is initially zero every month. This means that if you have purchased 100GB of service, it means that you have 100GB of traffic per month in one month. Note that anything like uploading, downloading, viewing, etc. uses the bandwidth of the service.
Checking the number of subdomains, domains, and addon domains
To check these items, you can easily view the number of permitted items in the statistics section, such as subdomains, domain names, domain parks, and more. In case of discrepancy, it is sufficient to inform the host company of the matter in order to be corrected according to the specifications in the submitted plan.
Check the number of databases, email accounts and …
The number of allowed items is also visible in the statistics section and you can easily see the number of permissions, as well as the number of used and the remainder. For many options, the phrase is a hyperlink to which you can access the fuller and more detailed details by clicking on them.
Check the share of hardware and software resources
If the hosting company uses the CloudLinux operating system, then there is the possibility of providing a clear source of hardware and software to each host. In fact, this operating system makes the right to be upgraded to the highest level for all accounts on the server. To view dedicated resources, you can check the following in the Statistics section:
- CPU Usage: View the amount of CPU usage that is assigned to the host
- Entry Processes: View the number of simultaneous hits allowed and running
- Physical Memory Usage: Find the amount of RAM you use and the amount you use
- IOPS: View the allowable value and use the Input / Output in units per second
- I/O Usage: View the allowable amount and use the Input / Output per unit volume in seconds
- Number of Processes: View the allowed amount and the number of running processes
Check the number of permissions allowed for the database
The value of this item is visible in the MySQL® Disk Usage Statistics section. Regarding the fact that usually high volume databases carry heavy server load, it can be said that hosts that support high-volume database also have higher prices.
Check web server used for hosting
A review of this topic can be done with a variety of approaches that are referred to here in two ways:
- Web server detection in the absence of content
- Web server detection when the website has content
First method: In this case, the web server name is usually displayed on the page by entering the site address. For example, if the web server used is Litespeed, it is usually visible at the bottom of the Proudly powered by LiteSpeed Web Server.
Second method: You can install the wappalyzer plugin on your browser. This plugin gives you complete information from the website where the web server you are using is also visible. Click this link to install this plugin.
Check SNI support and free SSL certificate
This feature is enabled in the SSL / TLS cPanel section. This feature provides the ability to install SSL certificates without the need for dedicated IPs. If you need to have SNI enabled in your host, it is suggested that you make sure that you have done so before you go shopping.
Check the status of the hosts with the IP server
There are several ways to do this. One of the best practices is to ping the website and check IP identity in IP diagnostic services. One of these services is whois.domaintools.com, where you can import your website IP and find out where it is. Note that entering the website’s address is also possible.
Technical checklist for more professional review
After reviewing the profile of the hosts, it is time to review the structure and status of the hosts professionally. Items such as security, compatibility, non-spam, etc. can be checked under the following checklist:
- Check the non-spam of the IP server
- Check the security provided to the hosting host
- Check the ability to change the language version supported
- Check the amount of ping IP of the server
Check if server IP is non-spam or not
Just enter your server’s IP address or domain at one of the links below and check the result:
If the IP is spam it is mentioned in the results.
Check the security provided to the hosting host
This is not fully recognizable, but knowing the following can be helpful:
- Use the Linux operating system
- Use the hardware and software firewall
- Use of security and security systems
- Configuring Server Professional Compliant with Security Principles
Check the ability to change the language version of PHP
This feature provides more customizability for hosts with content management systems. If available, this option is available in the CFT SOFTWARE section called Select PHP Version.
Check the amount of ping IP of the server
As a matter of fact, the lower the average ping number is, the better it is. Usually, the number between 100 and 250 is acceptable. To get a ping, you can enter the cmd with the combination key Win + R and OK. In the box above, enter the phrase ping domain.com. Instead of domain.com, enter your domain name. The results are displayed in 4 rows, the average of which is visible.
