    Criteria of choosing an ideal web hosting company by Leo L.


Before we talk about what it takes to be a cheap and good quality web host, let’s get to the
fundamental first.


What is a Web Host?

A web host is a service provider that places your web site on a computer which is connected to the
internet. The term for this ‘computer’ is called a server.



A web hosting provider will typically have a fast connection to the Internet
and they may host thousands of web sites on many servers. The web host essentially
rents out space to you so that you can get your website up on the world wide
web.


With a well-managed web host, you can free yourself from worrying the up-keep
of complicated server technology and proper technical maintenance. That’s the
whole purpose of the web hosting companies. You should leave the technical work
to web hosting professional while you focus on your own internet business.


Let’s begin...


Feature Offered

The features that web hosting companies are offering are getting quite standard

nowadays.


The followings are some of the common features you'll see in most web hosting
plans:

Control Panel

Control Panel is an interface where you can access your site on the web server,
allowing you to set-up and subsequently update and customize your web site.
Though cPanel is by far the most popular control panel, some hosting providers
customize their own so that they can up-grade and expand it at will.
 Diskspace

A vast majority of sites that don't have tons of graphics, sound and video
clips or downloadable files easily fit in 50 MB of disk space. You should
always leave yourself some room for growth or check if the host has a bigger
plan in case you need to upgrade.
 Bandwidth

Bandwidth is the amount of data transmitted or received through a unit of
time. In web hosting, bandwidth is consumed when visitors make requests for
files on your web site and download them to their personal computers.
Email Account

With POP3 email accounts you can check email from Outlook, Netscape Mail,
Eudora or any other Email software.
Scripting language

As all our top 10 listings are using Unix and Linux platform, php, perl and
CGI are the languages we are talking about here. It is best to choose a host
that supports the latest version to maximize the latest web technologies for
the fee that you pay.
Database

If your web site is going to store a lot of data that should be dynamically
accessible (like user accounts, stock prices, maps, Interactive news, message
boards and forum etc.), you'll need to look for an account that offers a database.
MySQL is a powerful and most popular database program that runs on the Linux
operation system. It is able to handle million of entries all at once. Its
flexibility and speed allow you to also store logs and pictures. MySQL is
designed to scale well under heavy traffic conditions and is ideal for database-intensive
or e-commerce-enabled Web sites.

Customer Service/Support

No matter if you are an expert or a novice in web hosting, you need a web host
with good customer support system. What is the criteria of an excellent customer
support? Let us explain.

                                              Presented by Daniel Toriola


 How big is the knowledge base?

This is particularly important for those who want to search for quick answer
without seeking direct assistance from customer support staff. Due to the
huge database, normally it’s searchable. Some web hosting providers will even
make your life easier by making a video tutorial guiding you step by step
in setting up your new account. Very useful for beginner.


Responsive customer service staff.

If you are too lazy to find the answer out of a big pool of database, get
the direct answer from someone who knows it. Direct customer support comes
in a few forms.

a. Email support



b. Phone support: Normally, sales and technical support uses separate phone
line. A good phone support staff knows what your problem is and answers with
relevance.



c.Web Host like Lunarpages and Globat even have live chat support. However,
it’s not how many support channels that are available but how responsive it
is of the staff. You can find out the hosting
reviews and ratings of each of our Top 10 Cheap Web Host.



Price to Disk Space / Price to Bandwidth Ratio

Are you paying too much for your Web Hosting Plan?

Having done the research on hundreds of web hosting companies, in general, we’ve
come to this conclusion: the more disk space and bandwidth you are getting,
the more expensive is the monthly price.


To help you understand which price is competitive enough for you to take up
the offer, we have categorized 5 different price range. For each price range,
a score of maximum of 10 is assigned. To understand the concept behind this,
please refer to the details here.

                                              Presented by Daniel Toriola


A web host might have the best feature offered, unbeatable customer support
and reliability in place but without an effective marketing plan, it will go
bust too. Let’s face it. If a web hosting provider does not have sufficient
members and steady growth of new members, it’s very difficult to survive in
this highly competitive industry.


We judge the popularity of a particular web hosting provider by looking at
the number of awards won, the reviews of other websites and the Alexa traffic
ranking.


All the hosting providers listed on our Top 10 Cheap Web Hosting Directory
are among the top 40,000 most visited websites in the world.


Reliability, Speed and Uptime Guarantee

Nothing can hurt you more than this: your visitors come to your web site only
to find that it’s not accessible. You lose credibility and possibly even a sale.
If your web host does not guarantee at least a 99% uptime, leave the web host
now!


To ensure maximum uptime, installation of redundant back-up systems is essential.
Each web host has their own management systems to minimize downtime. "Redundant"
means that if any of the Internet connections get interrupted, the alternate
Internet connection will take over.


We use Alertra software to monitor the uptime of each of our top 10 web hosts.


As for speed, even though routing, web server set up and local area networks
play a part in determining the speed of a site, the main concern of how fast
your site is depends very much on the types of network connections.


Many hosting providers still connect to the Internet through T1, or T3 connections.
This is not the case for our top 10 hosts- they are using OC (Optical Carrier)
lines.


A T1 line will offer data transfer rate of 1.5 Mbps (megabits per second),
while a T3 line can supply data transfer rates of 43Mbps. OC-1 refers to a circuit
that transmits 51.85Mbps. Higher levels are multiples of that speed. Ultra-High
Speed OC3 and OC12 lines offers 155Mbps and 622Mbps respectively. Some hosting
providers have connections to major internet backbones at the speed of OC48
(2488Mbps) and OC96 (4976Mbps).

                                                        By Anjali Sharma



Choosing the best web hosting service for you online business is a very difficult task to accomplish. A
famous and accountable Internet Service Provider will solve many of such problems but take care that
a poor web hosting service provider can be dangerous for your business to proceed smoothly.

It is very daunting to find a right kind of web hosting service at times because there are some very
important points to take care of before deciding to take any decision. Let us discuss some of these
points below that you must look for when choosing the perfect web hosting service for your business
website.

Amount of web space is the important thing to consider. The web hosting service providers often
assign you a certain amount of web space on the server. The website owner uses this space to store
the web scripts, files and folders so that it is visible to all the people in the web world. You must ensure
that you get a right amount of web space for your website. This web space generally depends on the
business needs and requirements. If your site is rich in graphics and video files then you may need to
have more web space for them to store on the server. Also in case your business expands in the near
future then you might want to increase your web space for the same. So take care that the hosting
company provides you with the increased web space in the future.

Another important point to take care of while choosing a web hosting service is the complete FTP
access on the server. FTP access is very crucial for the owner as it provides the complete access and
the ability to update the information on the website or to upload new pages. Also if you are a beginner
in this web world or are launching the website for the first time then there are some hosting service
providers today that allow you to just design your web pages using their personal web builder
applications. However you also need to ensure that the web hosting company should provide you the
facility to expand your web pages in future at the time when your online business capabilities raise to a
certain level.

You must also prefer a reliable hosting company. To decide the reliability of the hosting company you
must try to get their feedbacks from the web world. You can also check its reliability yourself by trying
to access your site during peak hours and non-peak hours in day time. Also in case if you have an
ecommerce website then just see that your site is secure from intruders at the same time.

The hosting company should be able to provide your website speed and security also. Your site should
be such that it can be easily accessed by the visitors without wasting much time to load the web pages.
These are some of the important criteria to take care of before choosing any web hosting company for
your online business.
