    How to Choose the Host with the Most - Reasonable Features with a Reasonable Price


    (Page 3 of 4 )

    Quality service, support and equipment should be primary and non negotiable.  For most people their website is a strong part of their business, and that should be protected at all costs.  Now we get to the features.  It is so easy to get blown away in the endless sea of hosting features and make the assumption that if a company offers that many features, then the price is right.  ďWhat?  1000 Mbps, Unlimited Email, OsCommerce, Fantastico and all that stuff for ONLY $16.00 a month?  What a great deal!Ē I see it all the time.  Meanwhile a company that offers the same features and better service at a lower rate was just one click away on the Google results.

    The important thing to remember is that if you donít or wonít need the feature, then donít pay for it.  If you have a company with five employees and never plan to expand past 20, then you do not HAVE to have unlimited email accounts.  Likewise, if you just use your website as an online business card and never plan to make a bulletin board or use a shopping cart then there is no point in looking for those features.  I am not suggesting that you forsake any company that has seemingly limitless features.  This is just a note to be cautious and make sure that you canít find a better deal on pricing as long as the hosting company has the things you absolutely need or think you may need in the future.

    Make sure to analyze your business needs and plan for the features that may be required.  If you are planning to make a dynamic website then be sure to select a host that has the appropriate server side programming versions that you will require. If you will need PHP Version 5 in the future, then do not go with a hosting company that only has Version 3.  In addition be sure to look for a host that has different package levels, so that in the event you do expand or downsize you can adjust your level of features to control cost.  As long as you follow those guidelines you should always at least have an option.
