How to Choose a Web hosting plan?

Choosing a good hosting plan is somehow very similar to the way how you choose a laptop. You do not need to learn every component inside a laptop to pick a good one; likewise, you do not need to have deep knowledge to pick a good hosting plan. However, you need to know what makes a hosting plan stands out from the others.



Reliability, flexibility, quality and price are the 4 most important elements you need to look after when you evaluate a hosting plan.
Price
This is the aspect most of us will look at first when choosing a hosting provider; however, it shouldn’t be the deciding factor. When you see price differences it’s helpful to remember the old maxim that we get what we pay for. Jumping on the cheapest offer you see isn’t necessarily the best idea, especially if you rely on your site to make money. Things like non-outsourced support and quality hardware cost money, and a hosting company that charges $1.99 per month likely won’t offer these features.

Reliability
If you’re looking forward to build a business website, then it’s very important for you to know how reliable is the hosting plan you’re going to use.

  • Uptime close to 100% – High uptime makes sure your visitors can always reach you by your website, thus not losing any opportunity to make sales.
  • Great support – you need to know does the hosting plan come with technical support. If yes, then how and when you can reach them? Nowadays, most of the hosting companies provide technical support to their customers but not all of them provide quality support. So, always keep your eyes sharp and read reviews for the company before you decide to choose the hosting plan.
Flexibility
When your online business grows bigger, you might need a better hosting plan to support your website. Always ask these questions while choosing a hosting plan:

  • Can the hosting plan be upgraded easily to a better plan in the future?
  • How much is the cost for upgrading the plan to a better one?
  • And, in case if you want to transfer the hosting service to another company, how easy is that?
Quality
You need to know the standard of a good hosting plan nowadays. I can’t cover everything here, but I can suggest you always pick a hosting plan with cPanel and Fantastico, MySQL– version 5 and above, and of course PHP 5.

  • cPanel – cPanel serves as a control panel used to manage your hosted account. It’s very similar in the way the Windows control panel works. Also, cPanel allows you to manage your website with little fuss while providing as much control as possible.
  • Fantastico – This is important, eespecially for newbies who first create their website. Fantastico enables you to do one-click-install for WordPress blog, forum, Joomla content management system and many other popular programs without any technical knowledge at all! Wonderful, isn’t it?
