Web hosting is just like house for your domain name. In reality, everyone wanted a really comfort house right? So did for your web hosting. You should choose the best web hosting fro your domain name. Without a good web hosting, you will lost a lot of visitor and potential customer to your website. So, what is the criteria that we should be taken when buying a web hosting?

1. Disk space and bandwith provided.
Before you buying a web hosting, you should ask yourself how much space does it needed to run the web smoothly. If you were just running a simple blog, a small size of disk space and bandwith should be okay. But if you were running a photo blog, then more disk space and bandwith needed to handle the amount of traffics that you’ll get daily. A lot of top web hosting like hostmonster and bluehost offered unlimited and unmetered disk space and bandwith.

2. The customer support and after sale services.
To be true, for me this is the most critical aspects that I will take seriously. A really good web hosting have a really great customer support and after sale services. Why did we need it? This is because, with the support & services we are able to ask them any problems that occur with our hosting. It is much more better if they have a 24 hour customer services. You must check it first whether the web hosting customer offer a really good customer services or not. Try to ask them one to three questions before buying the hosting with them.

3. Type of web hosting server you needed.
You also should know what type of server your website are gonna need soon. There are various type of web hosting server such as Shared hosting server, Dedicated server or Virtual Private Server (VPS). This is depends on type of scripts and amounts of website that you gonna run on the hosting soon. This is in order to avoid high CPU usage especially when you are using shared hosting. High CPU usage in shared hosting server could lead your hosting space being suspended. So, check out the script that you gonna use soon whether it is suitable for the server you want to buy or not.

4. Whats included in the web hosting?
You also should check this before buying a web hosting. Check how much add-ons domain allowed in the hosting, what version of PHP and MySql does it use, what type of script it offer, what type of panel control does it use and many more. This is depends on what type of website that you gonna build on that hosting soon. You also should check the other bonuses that offered by the web hosting.

5. Read other reviews about the hosting!
This is the last criteria that should be taken before you decide to buy a web hosting. Read other people reviews about the web hosting. Why do we need reviews? This is in order to know whether other people that have bought the web hosting from the company before have a good experience with it or not. Well, one of the site where you can read about top web hosting company reviews is at: http://www.alreadyhosting.com. There are top 10 best hosting company review there. I also had bought the 1st one which is HostMonster. It is a really great web hosting. Just like what the reviews said.

So, there you go 5 critical aspect that should be taken before buying a web hosting. You should always think wisely before decide to bought it. A good web hosting does indicate your website quality.

    You made a valid point with your second criteria. Technical support is very important. If my server goes down at night I need to know there will be someone at the hosting company ready to take my call and fix my problem.
