Choosing a web host based on price? Don't!Written by David Leonhardt

Reliability. When that phony spam complaint struck, my website was down for four days. Ouch! But there are many other things that can bring down a site. What is your web host's uptime? And how reliable is its reporting and your monitoring? Other things can happen, like a form not functioning – meaning lost sales. Worse still, what if Google comes crawling just when your site is down? Search engines don't like sending people to unreliable sites. Website & network monitoring services can often help avert such catastrophes, and cost is nothing compared to cost of lost sales. Sure, save a few bucks on hosting, and pay a whole lot more in lost sales and increased stress. Your web host is your Internet landlord. Take as much time choosing your web host as you would place you live in. Price alone just is not enough.

Advanced Features Complete web hosting packages offer you advanced features like CGI Scripts, PHP, MySQL, and PERL. You may start off with a basic web site but these advanced features will be valuable tools once your web business grows larger. If you don't have software to build your site, look for a deluxe web site hosting plan offering you a web site builder. This saves you from spending additional money on web building software. Price While price should always be a consideration, best value for your money is always better than cheapest monthly price. Be careful of web hosts charging low monthly fees because many make it up by charging you for additional services. Guarantee The complete web hosting packages should offer a 30 day money back guarantee if you are not completely satisfied. At least best web hosting plans offer this kind of guarantee. There are many more advanced options you can look for in a deluxe web site hosting plan but these basic considerations will make you aware of what is offered and make your choice a lot easier.
