How To Choose A Good Web Hosting Service
Are you thinking to make a professional web site and be successful in internet marketing? Well, for that
you need a good and professional web hosting service. Here are a few steps on how to choose a good
web hosting service.
First of all if you want to be professional then go for a premium web hosting account. Alternatively if you
decide to stick to free web hosting then you may lose the scope to be successful in web development.
Some main reasons are:
-Generally the service provider will force you to display their advt. or banner in your website. They want
this in exchange of the free service.
-In 99% cases free hosting services will not provide you with unlimited bandwidth and disk space.
-They may not give you FTP access. Means, they will force you to edit your site with online editors only.
-You may not install new CMS or Blogging software.
Now let us have a look at what we need and according to that you will select hosting service.
The most important thing you must keep in mind while choosing web hosting is "the reliability and up
time". Your site will surely lose many visitors if it is down frequently and does not load fast. So, always
go for hosting with the provider which has reliable uptime and has good record. The uptime must be at
least 99.9%.
Coming to bandwidth, always choose service provider giving unlimited band width, data transfer and
disk usage. Do remember that you are paying for the service. So, you must have FTP access, PHP, SSL,
SSH,.htaccess and the flexibility in installing scripts and softwares (CMS, blogging and others). If you
want to start online business don't forget to include shopping cart and e commerce facility.
Now make sure that your web host provides Email ([email protected]), auto responder and web
mail forwarding facility. These are, in fact, quite essential.
Now come to the price. The price must not be too high that you can't afford easily. Look for a hosting
provider with fees that is little cheap, preferably around $4-5 per month. If you choose domain from
another registrar and host it somewhere else it may be difficult to set up the DNS. Besides there are
many hosts which provide domain free of cost with a hosting package. The package may be little
expensive but do not forget you are getting a free domain with it and of course there is no burden to set
up the DNS.
Last, but not the least, make sure that the service provider has 24x7 support and live chart system for
customer queries.

That is all about choosing a good hosting service. Hope you gained some basic idea about web hosting
