Are you constantly having problems with your website host and are considering switching to a new provider? Transitioning a website to a new host is an involved process and most of the time requires assistance from a technical expert. It can also be costly. Before taking any steps be sure to read through this list which will help you to become more knowledgeable and clear up any confusion regarding errors and the causation of them.
Internal Server Errors
This is considered to be the most common error among WordPress sites, and can cause a lot of frustration for users. If your website constantly has this error pop up, then it’s definitely time to consider moving to another host provider.
Every Entrepreneur knows that having unexpected downtimes cuts into your SEO ranking and drives away potential buyers or clients.

This will go a long way in helping you determine when it’s time to act and move hosting.
If your website gets suspended without reason and you don’t get any notifications, it’s definitely time to switch hosting providers. One of the primary jobs of your web host is to be responsible for the sites they are managing, and if they fail, the support that you’re paying for isn’t helping you all that much.
Database Connection Error
There are two main reasons why a website is encountering an error establishing database connection. This includes having a bad plugin or your site is already outgrowing its host server. Your host provider should offer assistance in this case but if not, it’s time to move on.
Poor Customer Support
When you have your own website, things do happen that are beyond your control and cause problems on your website. When your site is down, having responsive customer support is crucial for those technical errors because they need to be resolved quickly. If customer service is consistently poor and you can’t get things taken care of in a reasonable time, definitely consider looking into alternative options.
Very Slow Loading or Speed
Speed is a huge factor for your customers and website visitors. 10 seconds of loading time may be the difference between a customer clicking away or reading more of your offers and deciding to purchase your product. If your website always has this issue and your support can’t resolve it, then consider moving to a better hosting provider.
