Selecting the Best Quality Web Host for a Web Site
When selecting the best quality
web host for your web site, your first consideration should be the company.
Check out their background. Talk with some of their customers and ask them
if they've been satisfied with their service.
How many customers do they serve?
What is their uptime percentage?
Do they require you to make payments in advance?
Do they charge set up fees?
How is their customer support? Test them.
Do they offer fast connections?
Do they offer shopping cart software to process your orders?
Can you upgrade free of charge?
Web hosting prices vary greatly. When selecting your host, make sure you're
getting exactly what you're paying for. Keep in mind, a lower monthly rate
will not benefit you if your site is down a lot, slow, or customer service
