I know that previously many users talked about how to choose the Web Host and which one is the best hosting provider. I am more liberal and not mention which web host provider is better than the others.

I found this useful article from blog

Nice helpful article. Uptime, support response time, reliability, price, disk space, bandwidth, good reviews and webhost stability these important points are to be considered.

I know this blog. It has a lot of visitors and could be considered as a good one although this article has been probably published for SEO purposes. However something I dislike in this blog is that they start the articles with Google Adsense code. This refers to poor online publishing expertise.

Thanks stevie for sharing a nice article covering really practical aspects to choose a web host. I am very keen toward having customer reviews and feedback before choosing any product/service. So, for a web host it is even more essential.

Good Post. This demonstrates that you get what you pay for(usually) There are too many people recently that I have seen looking for everything for only a few or $ which is never going to happen.

Great read. Out of the list, I would say reliability is the main thing everyone should be looking at.

You have to be able to have reliability or your host isn't giving you your money's worth.

I think you missed the biggest one, honesty.

Tons of hosts are just flat our liars and will sell your info and give services not agreed. After nothing is unlimited so that should eb a huge red flag if a company offers it.
