If you're interested in a shared site, for business or just the experience of having a website, there are a number of factors in cost that can define the quality of your host.
With larger hosting companies, you always have some level of guarantee at a low cost. However, these can always have unexpected delays due to a large amount of traffic.
If you want your website to legitimately represent your business or online reputation, I would go for something that doesn't have to be costly, just not so cheap that you can tell their service is spotty. A good web host has a comparable price, EXCELLENT service (which is a must for most web clients) unlimited data transfers, and a 99.9% uptime guarantee. After that, and a little research, you'll find the webhost that's right for you.

The control panel is important to a large number of users and some cheap hosting services will only give a watered down one with fewer accessibility options. The control panel without the higher level of control function that is necessary for professional website creation may not be able to adequately provide the tools which can help to manage the site.

It is not true that all cheap hosting service provide is not good and not trustworthy. There are many of web host company in the market that provide cheap price for hosting a website but they provide good and reliable hosting service that you can use to host your website. They provide full time customer support and 24x7 hours hosting services.

I think there could be some potential risks in cheap hosting. Cheap might not in good quality. We can not assure that the security of your website would be good because in cheap hosting like shared hosting lots of website sharing the specifications of the server.And, the security of your website would be at risk.

Free webhosting will not be reliable,
There could always be the problem with uptime etc.
So,its better to pay a small amount and enjoy good services.

Of course, if your website and business is too valuable then you shouldn't go with cheap hosting, as they would work according to the money you pay.

As for me reliable and friendly tech support is the main thing that should be checked firstly in such a kind of hosting.
