Often special challenges require special measures to be taken. This is also true for the current trial that all the sites are going through. Unfortunately, many sites are still not aware that this is not a long or cumbersome trial but is a matter of less than a week. Services like seo hosting do not take long to set up. Instead these services are just the opposite of this. These are easy to install and get your websites up, running and live with no loss of time. Some of the features that you can look for in your service provider are a 24*7 available support which offers good quality of services.
Check with the provider what their recorded downtime is in the past. With this, you can check their honesty as well as their performance from this single answer. Although claims of no downtime are made, it is a rare case so a good service provider might share a very low number which should be acceptable. Sometimes it matters more that how long they take to fix a problem. So, whether they have a problem or not becomes secondary and their turnaround time to fix it becomes more important in this case.
