Points to know a good Web-Hosts

Here are a few things I consider a good web-host to have. Also if you are considering starting a web-host these are some points you should breeze through.

Professional Layout - It is very important for a web-host to have a great and easily navigable layout. •Support emails - This along with a help desk system is a must •Response time - This is one ofrepparttar most decisive factors in choosing your Web-Host. I believe a good response time is anything between 4 hours, if its later then that I would not consider purchasing anything from them •Live Chat - This handy tool can help you bring immediate sales if you know how to use it.
