I believe that then site owners must have a clear idea what they need. When it comes to Shared Hosting for example, it is a good idea the consumers to take in mind that any promises for "Unlimited" space and bandwidth refer to cheap service and probably to a poor quality.

Another important thing is to use a company with good reputation and business history.

I recommend positive reviews and testing network or latest news from hosting provider before you choose them.

As much as it may seem like a big deal, dont let price be the determining factor, pay a lot of attention to customer service and quality, also do some research on the companies, or just on webhosting itself.

find out the servers IP address, do a search on this to finds sites hosted on the IP and then contact some of these sites for a review of the host.

if a host has a live chat check several times a day to see if this is every online, if it is online then chat with sales and ask some simple questions that a host should know and see what replies you get and then using either their sales email or ticket system ask the same questions this way and see how long it is before you get a reply.

a good host should reply within an hour, but allow time zone differences allow 24 hours, longer than 24 hrs and i would think again about using them, unless you send this during a bank holiday or weekend when some sales departments dont work

a host displaying this means nothing, you need prove of this
2)Servers equipped with latest hardware
a host can say they have the latest hardware, but unless you visit their datacentre you wont know if its true
3)High speed connectivity to internet
depends on hosts IO resources but if their site loads fast then this is a good sign
4)24x7 quality support
you wont know this until you have joined them on how good their 24/7 support is.

reviews are not to be taken as gospel as stated before users will only write reviews if something goes wrong and very rare to praise a host
