Web Site Hosting Choices

There are thousands of web hosting companies out there, with a lot of parity in price and features. So it shouldn’t be difficult to find a good web host that meets your requirements at a reasonable price. Here are a few simple steps to help make that happen.

  1. Features
    A site’s hosting requirements are set when the site is created. Obviously, if you use PHP and MySQL you will need a hosting provider that supports themt. Your web site designer is often the best resource to help make these decisions.
  2. Speed
    Usually, the response time is the most important factor in a hosting speed test. It is the time it takes the servers at the hosting company to respond to a request. You can get a reasonable idea by using the ping command and comparing times.
  3. Availability
    Don’t be fooled by numbers here-- 99% uptime means a web host can be down almost 15 minutes a day, which rarely impresses visitors. While most reasonably priced web hosting companies do much better than this, be sure you have a number to call when something does go wrong.
