How To Find Cheap Web Hosting?

How To Find Cheap Web Hosting?
By [http://ezinearticles.com/?expert=Ricky_Lim]Ricky Lim

There are plenty of cheap web hosting companies on the net and sometimes it can be very difficult to decide which one you should go for. After all, once you have decided on one web host, it can be difficult to switch your websites to another one.

Your primary factor when searching for cheap web hosting should not be price. Yes, price is one factor but you need to take consideration into other factors before deciding.

Here are a few factors you should consider as well besides the price:

  1. Customer Service

Ever had a problem with your hosting and no one to turn to? It can be frustrating when you have a problem with your hosting and can’t find anyone who can offer technical help.

It doesn’t matter how much traffic you get if your website is down and you can’t get anyone to respond to it. Good web hosting companies should have a support telephone line, live chat, email support and should be able to respond to any support case in less than 30 minutes. If not, move on to other web hosting.

  1. Reliability

Most web hosting companies have an uptime guarantee. Look for those that have at least 99.5% and above uptime guarantee. If it’s not stated on their website, call or email them to find out. If you can’t find the information, move on to the next web hosting.

It doesn’t reflect very well on your business or on you if your website is always down from time to time.

  1. No hidden charges

Make sure everything is stated out clear and in black and white. I have seen shady web hosting companies who have hidden charges such as extra charge for transferring a domain name out from their web host, extra charge when adding email or ftp accounts, extra charge for adding another subdomain.

While I understand some web hosting do charge extra for bandwidth and disk space and others, it should be made clear on the website and not after you already have brought their hosting package.

  1. Ease of use

Depending on your technical skills, you should choose web hosting that suit your comfort level. Most web hosting companies uses cpanel for website management. However a few such as godaddy uses their own proprietary management interface which can take some time to adjust to.

Taking into account all the factors above, how do I go about finding a cheap yet reliable web hosting?

The best way to find is to find web hosting reviews sites and forums and see what others have to say. Beware of some web hosting reviews sites who are biased because they have been paid by the web hosting company to provide a favorable review.

One of the places I visit often is webhostingtalk.com. It is a large web hosting forum where you get unbiased reviews of web hosting companies usually from customers. It’s also a good place to find bargain web hosting offers.

However, at the end of the day, you still need to make up your mind which web hosting you want.

Its hard to find good hosting service provider. Beacuse if we go for cheap price then we will not get good service support and If we go with brand they not listen customer problem. Now day's you can buy hosting only on other experience. I can understan you problem beacuse I was also go with the same situation at that time I heard about MicroHost company and I buy cloud hosting and they provide good services as compare to other companies.

Try narrowing your list of options by looking at the cheapest web host package that can meet your needs at the same time. Do not compromise what had been planned about for the web site just to meet the level of what can just be offered with the cheap web hosting package. Try to search for other cheap web hosting packages that offer the applications needed for the web site.

Of course, And indeed it's really important to go through the customer reviews and find out about the hosting provider though Board forums and discussion by doing this you can be sure of not getting into trouble by choosing the untrustworthy or fake provider.

I like the post but the title was a bit misleading. Definitely agree that customer service, ease of use, and reliability should be your key factors when selecting a web hosting company, and not your pocket book. Maybe the title should be, "How to pick a cheap web hosting company correctly."
