You should look to get as many integrated services as you can. That's so important because it's VERY expensive to order them after fact.
Room for Growth:
If you think you'll ever branch out, this is something to consider: Will you be able to create additional Internet addresses linked to your main account, at no extra cost? Some providers allow you to take advantage of that feature; a point well worth considering for future expansion.
When considering how much to spend, you have to take into account all of above plus your financial situation. Only you know how much you can afford to pay.
Since only you know what kind of enterprise is going to anchor your initial Internet adventure, you should consider all aspects related to it. As an example, if you're going to offer sound and streaming video to your customers, your needs should be met by a provider that has all specific requirements needed for those services.
Hosting AND a source of Income
There are some providers that will offer you discounts or financial incentives to bring in subscribers. A point to consider because you get two birds with one stone: A home for your enterprise and a way to make a steady monthly income from your referrals. I've heard some folks are making a very good living doing that!
Hunting for a place to host your Internet venture is a big decision that will affect your entire Web operation. You should take your time and consider all angles. It's something so basic! Making right choices will make your first Internet presence a streamlined and productive affair.
