Web Hosting Comparison Tips


Reliability and uptime

If you are serious about your websites, you would want them to be accessible 99% of the time if not 100%. Therefore, it is advisable to look for web hosting providers which guarantee a minimum uptime of 99% or ideally 99.5% and higher.

Data Transfer (Bandwidth)

Data transfer or bandwidth is the amount of data in bytes transferred from your website to the visitors when they browse through your website. The more bandwidth you have, the better

Disk space

Most websites need less than 10 MB of disk space but the more disk space a web hosting provider offers, the better.

Technical support

It is important for the technical support team to function 24 hours a day, 7 days a week (24/7 support). You don't want your websites to be down over the weekends if no weekends support available..

FTP, PHP, Perl, SSI, .htaccess, SSH, MySQL, Cron jobs

It is advisable to look out for the above features. They are important. e.g. You would need to use databases and many content management systems (CMS) need MySQL to run a blog or a forum etc... You would need Cron to run programs at certain times of the day

Email, Autoresponders, POP3, Mail Forwarding

You may want to use private email such as sales@yourdomain.com, etc... and you will need above features to use your email properly.

Control Panel

Usually cPanel is most used and I would suggest you to get a hosting plan which has cPanel.

Multiple Domain Hosting and Subdomains

This would enable you to host multiple websites under one account and you may want to use subdomains instead of directories for some sites.

Price

Usually monthly plans are much more expensive then yearly plans. You may look for hosting promotions to save money.
