    Re: how do you choose your hosting provider?

    Well choosing a web host, the number of years it is in operation is the most important criteria. always check that. don't just signup with any provider just seeing their attractive offer. moreover, always check for reviews by other users doing some google. it helps a lot to understand about the provider. also, always be clear about your specific needs with the host. if you need something particularly, the host must have it. otherwise you don't signup with them. right?

    I'm not sure pricing should be in the top list of criteria to pay attention to when choosing a hosting service. The cheaper the hosting service is, the higher chances to get low quality service.

    Completely agree with Mirra here... however I think a cheap service would fare well for a basic, no-frills, HTML-only website. What do you think?

    Re: how do you choose your hosting provider?

    It's important to do a thorough research, compare prices, discounts, plans that hosting companies offer, read reviews, check how available the support is, are they available 24/7 and through which channels - phone, e-mail, online chat or Skype. I would also make sure to get a free, 72 hour free trial.

    You need to look at customer service, price, reviews, and uptime. Those are the most important IMO.

    There are some criteria like

    Online presence
    compare competitors plans and pricing
    checking reviews
    How many years they are giving service
    terms and conditions policy

    How to choose a web hosting service?

    In brief –
    1. Know your hosting needs.
    2. Investigate on host reliability and uptime guarantees.
    3. Study web host upgrading options.
    4. Check all hosting features (such as number of addon domains allowed) based on your needs.
    5. Check prices on both sign up and renewal.
    6. Check hosting control panel.
    7. Read hosting company’s ToS to find out more about account suspension and server usage policy.
    8. Other supporting features (ie. site backup, environmental friendliness, etc)

    Knowing Your Hosting Needs

    You can never get the right web host without knowing what you need. So before you go any further think thoroughly on your own needs.

    1. What kind of website are you building?
    2. Do you want something common (a WordPress blog, for example)?
    3. Do you need Windows applications?
    4. Do you need a special version of software (ie. PHP)?
    5. Does your website need special software?
    6. How big (or small) can the web traffic volume go?
    7. These are some of the basic questions you need to answer for yourself.
