    What are some of the things you look at when you are looking for hosting? I mainly look at the price, up time, and support. I am curious to know what types of things other people look at :p

    Support is my priority to be honest, we use Register365 for our forum and the support has been great so far.

    What about you?

    The support is just a back up to if things go wrong. If everything is good, you won't need any support! :D

    Reliability in terms of uptime is very important. No point in going with a host that has a lot of downtime.

    Re:

    You need to be sure that your website is uploaded through secure servers using the latest Operating System. Most web hosts run on a UNIX based operating system, usually Linux or BSD. For the running of various web applications you would require ASP, .NET, MS SQL, SBS and for these you need a Window based host.

    Whenever you visit a website, what you see on your web browser is essentially just a web page that is downloaded from the web server onto your web browser. In general, a web site is made up of many web pages. And a web page is basically composed of texts and graphic images. All these web pages need to be stored on the web servers so that online users can visit your website.Therefore, if you plan to own a new website, you will need to host your website on a web server. When your website goes live on the web server, online users can then browse your website on the Internet. Company that provides the web servers to host your website is called web hosting providers.

    Price is important. You do not want to spend a lot of money for hosting that is mediocre, nor do you want to spend money if a free host will fit your needs.
    How much storage is the host offering? You’d be surprised at how hosts offer so many different amounts of storage space. Find a good balance between storage and the other features, to get your money’s worth of the hosting.
    How reliable is the host? Do their servers crash all of the time? How often and how long are outages? Do you get a refund for the time the servers are down?

    I usually follow the following priority order!!
    1. Price- Price is a very important. Anything out of your budget is useless.
    2. Specs- You need appropriate space and bandwidth.
    3. Support & Uptime- Support is really necessary, in case of any problem.

    Do read a few reviews about the host before actually taking another step forward. A flop company even with good support is still a flop show!!

    A web hosting service is one type of Internet hosting service which allows the individuals and organizations to make their own website accessible via the World Wide Web or internet. A Web host is the business of providing server space, providing Web services and file maintenance for Web sites controlled by individuals or by companies that do not have their own Web servers

    For me it's:

    1. Reliable after sales support
    2. wide variety of packages to choose from at competitive prices

    This is really quite interesting since I'm planning to have my blog hosted. I'm really new to this and I'm actually looking for a certain hosting company that has a lot of good feedbacks.

    Before you choose a hosting plan from a web hosting company, it would be wise to ensure that their customer support team is worthy. You can find out how well equipped the support team. Making sure your concerns are dealt with before choosing a web hosting plan will give you the opportunity to test the competency of the customer support team. If you contact the customer support and the person on the phone seems clueless, then you may want to consider another company.
