Choosing Your Web Host

June 14, 2009 | By Naman Bagga | Filed in: Blogging, Reviews, Web D.

I recently moved my blog from blogger to WordPress my own hosting. Choosing a web host was a major step in the process. I used a web hosting ratings and awards site called Web Hosting Geeks to make my choice of web host. First of all you should ask yourself a few questions- What do you intend to host? How many sites do you need to host? How big are the sites you want to host? If you ask yourself these questions, you’ll get an idea of what type of hosting plans you need and the amount of bandwidth you require. Then check up Web Hosting Geeks’ web hosting awards and ratings. According to your needs, select a host and have a look at a few reviews.

Web Hosting Geeks’ blog has some good articles too. These will help you answer the questions you need to ask yourself. For instance, you should read the article on The Pros and Cons of Web Hosting Platforms. Depending upon your needs and the CMS you want to use, you should select your hosting platform.

Hosting provider websites often phrase features differently and tend to mislead you with words like ‘unlimited’. You need to understand the TOS and the real meaning of the word unlimited. Nobody can literally provide you unlimited bandwidth or disk space. Web Hosting Geeks can help you escape such traps as it lists all features in an easy to understand tabular form. If you are looking for a web host, Web Hosting Geeks can definitely help you make your choice.
