Choosing a reliable host for your business is one of the most important steps that you need to make. The reason for this is that if your business is not up all the time you are likely to go out of business.
In this article I would like to go over the key things that you need to look for in a web host to see that it will actually meet your needs.
1) The up time of the web host
The most important thing that you need to look for is how reliable a web host is. Most companies have at least a 99 percent up time guarantee. Check to ensure that the company you choose fulfils this important requirement.
2) The amount of disk space that you get
You need to find out the actual disk space you will get. If you are a newbie usually this will not matter too much as many companies give up to 300GB for cheap hosting. However, if you are going to be running a professional service using software I suggest that you find out if this will meet your needs.
3) Ensure that it has a MySQl database installed
I have found that most applications need a database. I highly recommend the open source MySQL database as it is extremely powerful and is also free. This is usually required if you are using any type of scripting language like PHP on your site. A typical example would be to run a classifieds on your site using an open source script.
