5 Things to Look For in a Web Hosting Company

The Butler Advantage
You can't do everything yourself. Often times, you spend too much of your day dealing with unforeseen situations that arise. This makes completing all the tasks you've laid out for yourself extremely difficult. Implementing best practices will help you manage your time better, have fewer surprises, and allow you to focus more on making your business profitable.

Are you aware of your equipment's refresh dates, or do you just replace components after they break? Knowing the condition of your technology, and having a plan to deal with old equipment, will save your business money.
