Who never had a bad or wrong experience when it comes to web hosting services?
We’ve talked about why to use whois privacy; and, when it comes to choosing a good service I suggest you take into account the following information.
To begin with, I recommend you never choose from the completely free options. Why?

The best way to know if the web host service that you’ve chosen is the appropriate one is by going online. Researching the internet, reading user’s reviews and asking your fellow bloggers about their personal experience.
Here are some important points to be taken into consideration when choosing a company.
- HD Usage: You should always check the space available in the HD server to store files. If your idea is to host a blog, a site, videos, e-commerce, etc. then you should definitely go for a paid hosting service and try to avoid the cheapest one.
A cheap hosting plan will not provide you with the disk space needed. You should also be aware about technical features, such as: Bandwidth, Operating System, CPU Cores, RAM, etc.
- Data Usage: Data transfer is the amount of data to be transferred from one location to another.
This takes place in the following cases: either by you uploading files, your visitors viewing and downloading files, and emails transported from the server to your computer. Remember that each time your website or blog is accessed, the data usage will be activated.
- Tech Support: This is one of the most important points to pay attention to. If your blog or website, for some unknown reason, goes offline, who and how will they solve your problem?
Will you be able to talk to someone and fix it? Remember, customer service makes the difference! If anything should happen you will depend on the Tech support to solve your problem.
- Domain: How many domains can be hosted on one account? Depending on the plan you hire, you may have a limited amount.
But, it is quite often for your host to allow you to host an unlimited amount of domains. This is very useful for those who have numerous projects and will make you save up.
- Reviews: The best way to have a better outlook about a company’s service is reviewing. So don’t be afraid to search on the internet about a specific web hosting company.
You will undoubtedly get the information that you are looking for.
Now that I have given you some tips on what to bear in mind at the moment of choosing a web hosting service, I hope that you are able to find one that suits your needs and allows you to deliver a high quality service for your readers.
