With today’s competition, it’s very hard to find a solution which is the best among others. This is true with web hosting. A lot of companies are now competing in terms of price, disk space, bandwidth, and the like.
If you are an above average user on the internet and have some experience on web hosting you will find that cheapest price, unlimited disk space and bandwidth is not actually the answer to your needs.
There are fly by night companies who struggle to fight with big companies by lowering their price just to get leads. But the results end with unsatisfied customer who shifted easily on other reliable web hosting companies and leaving a bad comment on their product.
When I started my own business on the internet I search the cheapest web hosting to save money. But the outcome is not what I am expecting. Instead of saving some money my website has been compromise. I get a lot of errors and poor customer support.
When you buy a web hosting space make sure you check the following:
- Test if the customer support has chat service, toll free, ticket system, and the like.
Try to open a chat session and if a technician replied to a chat right away then it’s a sign that they have great customer support.
- Compare price from other company.
Price is the number factor why we choose our web hosting. But the result sometimes is not satisfying. Try to compare the price from other company and see if it is not overpriced.
- Choose only unlimited space and bandwidth.
If the company doesn’t support unlimited space and bandwidth then I bet they are just a subsidiary. They buy a reseller package and sell it with a lower price.
There might be so many factors to consider when choosing the best web hosting. The above list will just give you an idea. It’s still up to you on how you compare carefully every bit of information that you find.
As the last advice I would like to recommend HostGator as I have already proven their credibility. The customer support is awesome, the features are very competitive and they exist long time ago.
