Selecting a reliable web hosting company is always been a difficult job because web hosting is a big and competitive field. Every hosting provider would like to give as much as good features as a customer wants. But good features is not always what people require. Good customer support as well as good up time is also needed in order to keep running your website and obtaining your money making goals.

Here are some simple but effect tips you can follow to select a better web hosting company in terms of price, features and support/up-time.

Love at first sight is always not successful

Never select a hosting company at first sight by looking at their features table. If you run though the web hosting sites you’ll find this table in almost any web hosting company. Such as larger bandwidth, large disk space, php, mysql, databases, Free softwares (one click installed) etc. Every host have these features.

Forget the pocket and analyze your requirements

First of all you have to see what you want in a hosting environment. If you are starting a lot of mini sites then you may not need Bandwidth in terabytes. Just a couple of GB’s will work because people don’t work on mini sites too much.

On the other side, if you want to start one or few websites but having a traffic and community members goal then see how much bandwidth and disk space you may need. Video and photo sites always suck large bandwidth and disk space. PHP, mysql and other stuff should not be in your analysis because almost every hosting company have these features.

Build a list of your favorite companies

After analyzing your requirements and looking at features table of hosting companies, build a short list of names. Some i can recommend are
* BlueHost (probably best, also best if you are going to use wordpress)

* StartLogic ($5.95, but best recommendation due to their high quality service)

* Lunar Pages (Cheaper $4.95/m only and rich features and support)

* Hostgator (best , reliable, sometimes less supportive staff but it works)

See your pockets now

Now see how much you can afford and choose the one name to purchase hosting from.

Find the words from world

Go though popular web hosting forums and find and read reviews about your selected company. This must be done in order to find how other people feel about this hosting company. You can try WHT (Web hosting Talk) forum and many others too. They can give you best advices too. And then purchase the hosting and start running / hosting websites.
