Businesses be aware

Companies offering services of web hosting and web design may not always be all that they seem. Some companies that offer these services often are "middle men" and are in it for a fast buck. 

They often do not follow standard procedures and often take short cuts to save time and save money.
This often leads to the client losing out in time, money or even the loss of their website service.
Businesses need to make sure that the company they entrust with their website is a real ISP (Internet Service Provider).

What defines an ISP is the following:

Hardware is owned and located onsite of the ISP.
Staffs employed are all technically skilled.
Own infrastructure in place and running.
They have full control over their network infrastructure.

What defines a VISP is the following:

They have no IT infrastructure.
All hardware is rented onsite at third parties premises. (This can be in any location in the world).
Often no technical staff are employed to assist client queries.
They often due to lack skill often register domain names incorrectly and to wrong people.
Often not in business very long due clients becoming wiser to the lack of service and loss of money.

Benefits of dealing with an ISP are that the client deals directly with the company that is hosting the website. So the client has one point of call. The response to any queries would be quick and direct.
Dealing with an ISP in the plain means you are dealing directly on a 1 to1 basis and not through a third party that acts as the middle man. ISP's are here for the long term and not for the quick buck.
