Web Hosting Company Search

By Staff

There is an interesting historical note as to why it is so easy to find cheap web hosting (bear in mind that cheap is by far not the only criteria you should consider when selecting an Internet Web hosting provider).  Some the of more successful companies that started out in the Internet land grab frenzy and managed to survive the dot com death march stuck to their guns over keeping their prices affordable.  In some cases their prices were half of what other business were offering.  Lots of those first companies went the way of the dodo and are no longer in business.  But lucky for those of us looking for an affordable Internet provider, the cheap guys won!

Fast forward to today.  Rest assured that you will have no trouble finding an alternative that suits your budget.  Decide first what you want your web site to do.  How will it support your business goals?  From there put together a list of services you would like to have from your ideal hosting provider.  Do you want hosting that also offers all-in-one design and development service and maybe some marketing help?  How do the providers you are considering compare on what they charge for setting up?  If you are a web designer yourself, you might like a provider that offers reseller packages so you can offer cheap hosting to your own clients while you design their site.

So what should you look for?

Reputation.  Are they reliable?  You may not need a site that is up 99% of the time…right?  Wrong.  Why would you not expect that level of reliability these days?  Do not rely on the testimonials posted on the Web site.  They may have useful specific information but they will not offer anything in the way of a critique or review of the provider.  See if the provider you are considering has any large customers – that is a good thing in and of its self – and if so, can you get some feedback from them about their experience with the Internet Web hosting provider.  You can also ask colleagues who have existing Web-based business for their recommendations.  Match apples to apples here – if you are planning to launch a large data-driven online pure play, seek advice from those with a similar infrastructure behind their businesses.
