    How to choose good web hosting companies

    There are millions of companies on the net who advertise themselves to be the perfect web company, but only few of them are REALLY proficient web hosting companies. In the world of advertising tactics and gimmicks, few good companies get overshadowed by the rest. There is no sure shot way to determine the perfect web hosting company, is it possible to find a good company ?

    thanks

    That depends on may things :-

    1. Your budget, depending on that you should be able to short list your host from a list of providers.
    2. What you want to host ( If it is a business site or a personal )
    3. What all technologies you need on your website ? ( html only or db driven site ? PHP or asp or Tomcat ? )
    4. How much traffic you expect to your site ?
    5. Who is your targeted audience - if your targeted audience in in India and you have your site hosted in the US can result a slow website to your users.
    6. Reputation of the hosts you have short-listed.
    7. Do they provide a personal touch for you or consider you as just a small potato in their basket ?( make some initial mail contact with them and get a feel )
    8. Read some review about the selected hosts and enquire about their support. Keep in mind that for a web hosting business, its the support that matters.
    9. Ask the short-listed hosts for a 10Mb / 100Mb file so that you can test the download speed.
    10. Inquire about their backup policy and make sure that you are thorough with their Terms and conditions.

    Once you have done these carefully, the best host will come up from the list.

    PS: Do not go by their pricing alone - Cheap host doesnt mean good host always.

    You can search for hosting reviews and also contact them to see how much time do they take to answer.

    The forums here are a good place to start. I prefer to deal with smaller companies so that I can pick up the phone and talk to someone if there is an issue. If you deal with the larger companies you are very unlikely to get the personal support that smaller companies offer.

    Good hosting companies can be chosen by a thorough research in various web hosting forums. This will help to gain more knowledge and will help to compare plans between various hosting providers to choose the best for your requirements.

    You should consider following things while selecting a perfect web hosting company:
    1) Reviews about their product and services on different portals
    2) Pricing

    4) Data center specification

    To list out few of the things that you should keep in mind while selecting DC :

    - Location (close to your user base, the better)
    - Security (PCI and HIPAA compliance)
    - Good network infra

    You need to also take into account the location of the Data Center of the hosting providers. It is recommended to choose a DC location close to your user base.

    You should compare hosting companies, look up for their reviews and find what users have to say about the company. Always check their Twitter pages, many clients leave negative feedback on Twitter which help you know more about the company.

    My recommendation is find out who your clients or friends use. Use their feedback. Hosting companies may show you a beautiful website, easy signup, and dirt-cheap price...but after finally getting things set up you find out their support stinks or that your site won't work.

    There are companies out there who host the world personally, find that company and host with that company.

    If you ask me, it is really simple. 1. Good Price 2. Awesome Customer Care. I am using different hostings for more than 5 years now. If you ask me, i will tell you to go with the mainstream ones as they are actually good. For example, i am using vpswebserver.com now. They are simply awesome.
