Hosting for Your Website

When it comes to hosting, in my opinion, if you are just starting to develop an online site or business, what will really make the difference is the support department.

Look at price and features, but also look at help sections, knowledge bases, and direct contact to support. Be satisfied in these areas before worrying about shared or dedicated hosting, uptime/downtime, bandwidth, disk size, database management, extra scripts, and the like.

If you do not really understand what these items are and how important they are, then I believe it is best to go with the service that provides the most information that you do understand when in preliminary setup stages. Be sure to understand and like the support system because you will definitely use it at some point in time.
