You have an idea for a website. You’ve secured the best domain name. Now, all you need is to choose a hosting provider. Immediately, you Google for potential options. Instead of just picking the first provider from the search engine results, it’s important to take some time to consider the differences between hosting providers. Each host has different features, pricing, and limitations based on the plan you select. Having used many hosts over the past decade, we can unequivocally say that the research you’re doing now is well worth the time investment. Below are several things to consider when evaluating website hosting providers.

Before choosing a hosting provider, make sure it has a stellar reputation. You’ll find hundreds of sites that claim to provide reviews on the best hosting companies. Unfortunately, there’s little consistency between their results and sifting through them will leave you in no better a position to choose a provider.
