Information about Budget Web Hosting
Published: Mar 17, 2010
There are umpteen web hosting providers in the fray. You have to choose one that is not expensive and will meet your requirements.
The following are some features to look for
1- There are good many web hosts in the market that rent servers and sell cheap web hosting plans. You have to find out whether it is really professional with a good level of support.
2- Compare host offers, and if they are offering the same features then go for the cheaper one.
3- Check the rating scores and comments to see how others have rated a host that you are looking at. The plans are listed lowest price first but you should list them by highest rating first.
4- Remember that nothing is 'Unlimited', especially not bandwidth. If you plan for a lot of traffic, unlimited plans will quickly cause you problems and irritation.
5- For this search only the lowest price plan for each host is listed.
6- Look for Hosting Assured status- A Hosting Assured host has stated that they will abide by a code of ethics. Hosting Assured can help if you have a problem.
What to Expect from Budget Web Hosts
Lower level of support - Generally, the cheap hosting companies give a low level of support. Some may offer you good support, but for an important website look for expensive plans that give you 24/7 support.
Potentially lower reliability - With budget plans you will probably be on the same server with as many as 500 other websites.
