"Don't Break the Bank"

When purchasing you need to make sure this fits with what you are trying to accomplish. But of course do not overspend if it is not within your budget. You simply need to know where the potential traps are, and how to avoid those traps. The bottom line is that no matter what you’re purchasing, you’re going to end up with the best result if you’re able to make decisions based on the details that will affect you the most. With that in mind, here are three things you need to know in order to make the best decision about a Web host.

Web Hosting Sin #1: Too Few Databases

It appears that most plans are very limited in the amount of flexibility they provide. If you only have one domain in the first place, you will not need an unlimited package. You can always upgrade when you get to the point. Why spend extra if you dont need to?

Web Hosting Sin #2: Too Few Domains Allowed

Web Hosting companies seem to limit the amount of domains you can have on a shared server. They limit from 1 to 5, which really can limit your flexibility over time. Although this is the case with some companies, good companies can offer 20 and even better companies up to almost 1000.

Web Hosting Sin #3: Crappy Developer Support

This is truly key when shopping for a hosting company. If you run into trouble you truly want a company that will respond in real time. This becomes a huge problem for those who have larger companies and issues arise. So make sure you do your research and become knowledgeable about the company you are buying into.
