In nowadays, when we started a new project for a site, or when a customer asks us to choose an hosting provider for their site, it is difficult to say what’s the best, as the market is large and varied, and as some may be better in terms of price, others may be best in terms of traffic limits, and so on. I want in this article pointing you to some of the factors that we should bear in mind, before taking the final decision to choose the hosting for your application.

Technical support – is perhaps the most important of all factors to consider. You must be very carefully and find out what users say for certain services of hosting, because later this analysis could be an ally or not in the life of your application online. Do not forget that often find various hosting services, which are nothing more than people who bought packages of resale, and that many times they have only some knowledge of the activity because they are addicted for this kind of business;

Quality of Service –I mean, the service is always up? has too many interruptions (downtime)? Many sites on the same server? Time of response too long?

Area / Traffic / Software – In this point comparisons should be easier to do. However, note that sometimes the service who provides less space, can be offering a higher limit of traffic. If you do not need the entire space, the traffic is what must be taken into greater consideration. As for software management of your room (ie CPanel), you should seek who offers a more updated version;

Price – After all that analysis, try to find a middle term between price and what the service offers.

Well now you ask me, but sometimes it is difficult to find detailed information on suppliers of accommodation, with reliability? My answer goes to a site where you can do all these comparisons, and read articles that helps you to decide better before buying a service. Nothing better than having the information concentrated on the same site. In webhostingrating.com, you can see the assessment given by various people of various hosting providers, and thus may make a more complete analysis and wise about what they want… A service of accommodation at the best price, fast, with quality, that responds to your difficulties / problems.

In order to get a clear image of the best hostings, you can also choose to check the web hosting awards, which will give you general information of the best hosting plan of certain providers. Some promotions and discount coupons can be made available which you should bear in mind.
