Of course Price is number one. But I also look for site templates, add-ons, SQL support, SSL support, easy install logging files and most important, ease of access.

Reputation – no pint having the cheapest soloution on the planet if everyone thinks the service is terrible or if system uptime is low.

I would prefer to pay more to know support is good and uptime is high and guaranteed.

If you are looking for a web hosting company you need to look for a company with either cPanel or vDeck as their control panels. This is because these control panels provide the easy installation.

Here are a few things to consider when looking for a good web host. I recommend because you can get free web hosting, free top level domain, free email, webmail, POP, HTML, PHP, MySQL, Databases, 300MB disk space, 10 Gigabytes bandwidth, Safe Mode off, AJAX, Free web builder, free sign up, and 29 preinstalled scripts to make your hosting even easier.

There are many web hosting providers and you might become confused to choose which one. It is very important that you choose a good web host. Good doesn’t mean expensive. Good means reliable with great support.

Some people try to save money and choose to go with a free web host. They usually realize pretty quickly what a huge mistake that is. I’m all for free whenever possible, but free web hosting will end up costing much more than you save.

But, let’s face it – how do you know if a web host is good or not? They all look pretty much the same and they seem like they know what they are doing, right? Well, I recommend reading reviews so that you may compare and become more familiar with the hosting companies before making a decision.

When you choose a web host, make sure they have excellent support. If you have a problem with your web site you want help now, not in a day or two.

is the lowest cost service which is full-featured and really works for you ($3.99 /month). They accept monthly payments.

But if you’re looking for the best service on the web, as an experienced webmaster I recommend BlueHost service which I’m sure it would work for you and fulfill all your requirements. They have a really great offer for hosting & I have used them for over 3 yrs now, and have never had a single problem with them.

They offer a Full-featured service only $6.95 a month. You can see their Plan Details accompanied with reliable reviews regarding their service at:

Here I have copied and pasted its features from their website to view:

- Free Domain Forever
- Unlimited Space
- Unlimited Transfer
- Host UNLIMITED Domains (Support All Domain Names)
- 2,500 POP/Imap Email Accounts
- SSH (Secure Shell), SSL, FTP, Stats
- CGI, Ruby (RoR), Perl, PHP, MySQL
- Front Page Extensions
- Free Site Builder
- 24/7 Superb/Responsive Sales/Support
- Free Search Engine Submission

They also offer “Free Site Builder” that helps you build your web pages without difficulty if you are not skilled in using any website creating program (WYSIWYG: What You See Is What You Get). You can use this service optionally.

* This service was awarded “The Best Web Host OF The Year”.
* If you sign up for this service you will have $75 credits to advertise your website with the google & yahoo search engines for free!

I would say the web hosting company would have to be local to the country you live in, with a good network infrastructure, data centre and support network. If it’s local you will benefit from speed and local search engine positioning. Make sure you get a domain that is local to your country too, as this will also help in search engine optimisation.

web hosting

yes price, good support, and features one click wordpress install ,
reputation .Tutorials ,good backup service.

But something to consider that determines whether or not I stay with a particular host is uptime and speedy problem resolution from support.

You should check out and get a free month of hosting a free domain name. they have everything and you cant beat the price.

Review by Michael, June 13, 2010


Price and support. If you have a small business you are wasting money spending more than $10 per month on just hosting. Look around and find a cheap host with good support and add-ons for your business.

One host I recommend is Blue Host ( you can read my review at ) with plans at $6.95. They also have 99.9% uptime. A great option!

So, for me price and support are the most important.
