Cheap Hosting - Cheap Prices but not Cheap Service

Cheap Web Hosting
Cheap Hosting does not necessarily mean cheap & nasty hosting...

web design resources

In fact by opting for cheap web hosting you certainly do not have to settle for cheap service, ineffective support, poor features and no added value...

...on the contrary, you can actually get extremely professional & reliable hosting providers who provide both reliable & dependable services packed with many features at cheap prices.

The trick however, is to be able to differentiate a cheap hosting company from a cheap & nasty hosting company...

How to Choose a Cheap Hosting Provider

6 Things to Consider Before Choosing a Cheap Web Hosting Company

Whilst 2 different web hosting companies may appear to offer the same value service with similar benefits & features, the type of service they actually deliver may be 2 totally different stories.

The thing is you don't want to find out about a company's shoddy service once you have signed up, paid over your hosting fees & have thrown your lot in with them.

Or worse still, you do not want to discover that what appeared at first to be a reliable hosting company, they disappear overnight without trace.

Believe me this happens & has to be one of the worst things that can possibly happen to a website owner - you're left in the dark with no live website, no email facility & if you don't have backups of your website & databases you have nothing...

In some cases webmasters have lost year's worth of work, customer databases and other valuable information - in other words a web hosting company that turns nasty could cost you your business.

So this is what you can do to ensure that you don't fall prey to an unscrupulous web hosting company...
  1. Trust Factor - Profile

    Is the hosting company well known with a profile.

    For instance you would probably choose a well known name over a name like 'Joes Cheap Hosting Service'

    The higher the profile of the company, ie the more well known it is, the more trust you will have in its services & be safe in the knowledge that you won't be let down

  2. Presentation - Website

    The company's website will give you a feeling of the level of their professionalism.

    Also have a look at its page rank which will give you an idea of its popularity & integrity

    Look for contact details, 24/7 live support and so on.

  3. Reliability (Uptime)

    Most web hosts will 'guarantee' 99.9% uptime - check for proof

  4. 24/7 Customer Support

    Test out their customer support & see how quickly you get a response

  5. Features

    Obviously you need to compare various features in terms of your needs.

    Things to consider would be;
    • Disk Space (Min 600gb)
    • Bandwidth (Min 9,000gb)
    • Number of Domains Allowed - Unlimited
    • Email - POP3 Accounts - Unlimited
    • Pricing
    • Site Builder - Included
    • Instant Backups
    • AWStats (Real Time Updates) - Website Statstics
    • ECommerce Features - osCommerce
    • Latest cPanel with Fantastico Features
    • 45 Day Money Back Guarantee
    • Free / Instant Setup
    • MySQL Databases
    • CGI
    • PHP 5
    • Ruby On Rails
    • This list is not comprehensive but should be the minimum provided by any reputable web host.

  6. Search Online for Bad Reviews

    Do an online search (by the company name) for bad reviews & comments.

In fact you can get all of the above features, and much more, included in this reputable web host's Cheap Web Hosting package for only $7.95 »

Webhosting from Yahoo is also ultra reliable, feature packed as well as very cheap - it also goes without saying that Yahoo's reputation is unquestionable...
