How to choose your hoster?

Hosting for your new website

Now that you have a web name, spent months on creating a great author website, you are ready to hit the cyberspace.  But whom do you trust to host you website?
A lot of site owners shop their web hosting only by price, but since the differences in hosting prices are negligible, there are other features and more important factors when choosing the perfect hosting partner.

Many web hosting services let you choose from several types of packages, each with a different price and slightly different range of offerings. Prices can range from $6/month to over $40/month. These price differences are due to the different features included within each plan and to the eagerness of some newer hosting companies, to grow their brand by offering extremely low rates.

Technical & Customer Support
Customer support in a web hosting service should be efficient and effective, as well as polite and responsive. Your hosting service should quickly answer when contacted and be able to solve your problems right away.

Disc Space & Bandwidth
Even if your site is small at the moment, you should look for a minimum of 5 GB of disk space and 250 GB of bandwidth from your web hosting plan.

Control Panel
Choose a web host who‘s control panel is easy to use.

Look for hosting services that guarantee up-time, and how they implement this promise. 

Do you have all the access you need, and can you find all the functions you require for running your website?  Is there proper documentation and help articles?  Do you have a user-friendly control panel?
The situation is ideal if you have full control of your site and can manage it on your own – most of the time.

Server Features
A good hosting service offer both Linux and Windows servers, PhP, ASP, Flash etc. and enables you to move between when necessary.

Choose a hosting service that backs up your web content regularly.

    Those are the big companies. How about trying a smaller, friendly, local company who will remember your name and know your interests.
