Selecting A Web Hosting Provider

When selecting a web hosting provider it is better to go with one that specializes in web hosting and does not provide hosting in addition to providing Internet access. Many ISP's provide web hosting as an add-on service, but they do not provide many features which are important to operating an effective web site. This can potentially end up being a problem if their main focus is not making sure your web site is getting the service it needs.

A web hosting provider that has been in the business for years is your best bet. This can help you avoid a lot of new companies' learning errors. It is also beneficial to you if there should be a problem, they have the experience to fix it.


A web hosting provider should collect and maintain the access logs for your web site and this will give you access to web statistical reports generated from the access logs. This way you will be able to review the statistics to see how your site is doing in terms of traffic and maintenance. Maintenance is important as you want to ensure your web hosting provider has an excellent uptime record, you don't want hours of downtime for your site.

Your web hosting provider should be fast, yet have reliable servers. A server that has a lot of problems and is always shutting down, can mean less uptime for your web site. Don't select a provider on price alone, do some research to find out about each provider's history of service.
