Webhosting Tips Wanted

Postby babai » Sat Dec 06, 2008 1:36 pm

A company is considering switching web hosts, and im looking for some suggestions

web host needs to support the following:
- lots of storage space
- all the latest technology (doh), php, ruby, ajax, asp, mysql, etc
- email support (at least 20 boxes, and unlimited pop/smtp support *no 250 relay bull*****)
- SSL certificate support
- control panel
- FTP access
- numerous domain & sub domain support
- room to expand (ecommerce)

and most importantly cost efficient ;p

I'm looking at a shared hosting (or perhaps even a virtual server) package.

Currently ive been looking at godaddy since their plans seem to offer all of the above and is fairly affordable, but im also looking for other options.

This is not for me, it was on another forum & I thought some ideas would come up here.

Checkout maybe rackspace. http://www.rackspace.com/index.php
We use them where I work, but I don't know all the details as far as your requirements listed in your post.

1. Cost of Hosting – Consider your budget before choosing a host. Some web hosts would give you discount if you pay for 1 year. Some might give you more discount if you can pay for 2 years or even more.

2. Addon Domains – If you have multiple websites, get a webhost that allows addon domains.

3. Down time – Look for hosts that have low down time. It is annoying if you try to access your site, and you cannot. If you have a business, this means losses because there were no sales.

4. Web Space – You need a lot of webspace if your site is growing especially if you have addon domains. Every post you post on your site uses some of your web space. So this means that the more you post, the more space is being used monthly.

5. Customer Support – A good web host should have online customer support. This is because you would like to receive an answer immediately and not after 6 hours. The customer support should be able to handle all your technical needs.

6. Cpanel – Having a Cpanel feature would save you a lot of trouble. If you want to install a blog platform such as WordPress, you can do it with a single click from the Cpanel.

7. Money Back Guarantee – You might change your mind later and decide to cancel a hosting service. Most good web hosts have 30 days or more money back guarantee. So if you change you mind within 30 days, you are sure of receiving your full refund back.

8. Reviews – Look for reviews about the web hosting company. People would always write if a web host is good or not. Read the negative reviews and see if it is a recurring problem or if it is an isolated problem.
