    How to Choose a High Volume Host - How to choose your host


    (Page 3 of 3 )

    Now that we have talked about the criteria, we can look at the way that you can conduct your own research on a high volume host.

    Step One: Get your list of possible candidates together by using a search engine or referrals from other web masters.

    Step Two: Cross out any candidates that do not meet your needs for developing languages or hosting features. Unless, that is, you are willing to redesign your whole site. If you are starting from scratch, you may want to speak with your developer.

    Step Three: Compare costs. If someone seems disproportionally high, remove them from the list. It will save you a lot of waste.

    Step Four: Make your customer service test, by asking an innocuous, yet taxing question. Use that response to decide if you will want to do business with this company or if they are too unresponsive to your needs.

    Step Five: By now the odds are that you are down to two or three choices. Take some time to read the site FAQs and terms of service. If they arenít posted, ask customer service. This will give you a change to look for whammy clauses or other unacceptable terms. If a company will not provide you with terms of service until after payments are made, pass them by. This is a disreputable business practice at best.

    Now you can choose a high volume host with ease and confidence.
