Web hosting service isn’t something you can randomly pick, especially when your business hanging on the balance. There is free hosting as well as commercial hosting. What are some of the things you should look for when choosing a web host (I am sure dozens of factors available)? The factors for choosing a free web host and a commercial web hosting solution are slightly different, although they do overlap.
Choosing a host is an important decision. It’s wise to have a long relationship with whatever host you choose, in terms of money as well as hectic moving process. To make the decision, you need first to decide what you need. In general, we have to visit the sites of several hosting providers (referred by a friend or colleague mostly) and evaluate what they have to offer in the light of requirements. But problem starts when your needs and satisfaction no way near to your friend/colleague’s one.
In that case you have to search through the web for finding the right one for you. Or you can just simply go to web hosting choice, a great place to go to help with your decision making. These guys provide you a fair amount of usable, useful information and the ability to search their site for the web hosting site that has the features you want and need. You will notice this isn’t just another referrer site, that will refer you to bunch of hosting, instead you can consider that this is a web application designed for delivering results (in this case hosting providers) according to data (your hosting requirements) you provide.
You can search by “Hosting Plan details” (Monthly cost, setup fees, disk space etc.), “Hosting Features” (Webmail, PHP, ASP, Perl etc.) or “Payment options”. They do also have a hosting directory (You can submit your own hosting company if you want – I have noticed some major providers are missing from their list, though), Plans directory. Their learning center section is very useful for the beginners.
