Cheap Web Hosting is Better than Quality Web Hosting?

The old adage goes: "Saving is never gain". I must admit that it is true. When you choose something for free or very cheap, in the long run you'll always loose something if not everything. This is most true when it comes to technology, especially when looking for web hosting service provider.

It is one thing to say that you want to have an online business, but once you already have a website, you realize that there are yet many other points you need to factor in. Like, for instance, you can have as many beautifully crafted websites as possible, but for the world to see them, there are a couple of things you must do.

One is to have your site hosted, and after that is taken cared of, you must promote and advertise your website. In order to enable your site to be up and running on the World Wide Web you need you must get a hosting service where you can store all the files. It is advisable that you choose the web hosting provider very carefully.

As there are so many different providers offering web host services, only few of them can actually suit your needs.

Web hosting services can be free, cheap, or expensive.

If you choose for the free or cheap services, then there are a some things you must understand before start with one of them. The first thing to keep in mind is the ability to host the contents and the size of your website.

The second thing to consider is the fact that the free web hosting service may not ansure you with all the tools for your website needs. Since your purpose will be to sell services or products, remaing in touch with your customers, it is necessary that you'll have email and ecommerce features. It is also important that the provider can give you at least 99% uptime. Such features may not be offered by free providers.

The third factor to consider while choosing a web hosting service is the technical and customer support. So be sure that the hosting provider will offer you the 24/7 support in case you may run into some kind of trouble. Of course the free hosting cannot offer you the above feature.

So when you look for a web hosting company be sure to invest some time to search and compare various hosting providers before you spend some money. There are so many websites offering information about web hosting services on the internet of which you can take advantage. You can also join forums to talk to the experts, and search for testimonials.

My experience about choosing a web hosting company is to research at least ten company. Then you can visit their websites and write down a list with all the features that each company offer, including the price. Then you can search the forums for reading testimonials.

When you have found 3 or 4 company with great testimonials, you can then contact each one so that you can see how quickly they answer to your questions. This will help you make the final decision.
