How do you choose a hosting provider when there are thousands of hosting companies? Important factors in selecting a web host include:
You want your website to be seen, so you need a web hosting service that offers a high percentage of server uptime. This means that people seeking your website will get to see your pages nearly all the time. 99% uptime is the standard for server uptime, 65% is unacceptable. The more downtime of a server, the less time your web site will be available to see.
2 Disk Space
You need to ensure that there is enough disk space available on the web hosting server for you to do what you need. Most sites require very little space when they fist start, so this is not usually an issue to begin with. However, you will continue to add content over time. Make sure that your hosting provider can offer the space to grow, either within your existing plan, or by upgrading to a higher plan.
