Choosing a reliable web hosting provider can be a difficult task unless you know what is really important.

There are literally thousands of hosting companies that offer hosting packages, domain names and other web services. By understanding the different aspects of the service, you are looking for you'll be able to decide which hosting company and package best suits your needs.

Let's look at the main features of Web Hosting - 

Pricing

This is the first thing most all of us look at when choosing a web host. However, this should not be the deciding factor.

Choosing the cheapest is not always a good idea, especially if you are depending on your website for your main business. Compare all the features provided by the hosting company to others.


Requirements

By knowing your requirements beforehand, you will be able to make the right decision in choosing a web hosting service.

If you are not sure, make a list of your requirements and contact the service provider and ask questions. Ask them what features are included in their service cost. Do they charge additionally for website transfer, SSL, backups, emails, domains, etc?


Tech Support

Technical support is another most important aspect to consider in a web hosting service. Your hosting provider should offer 24 hours a day, 365 days a year technical support. You can also check their reputation for customer support or find reviews about their customer service.


Control Panel / User Interface

There are some basic things such as installing WordPress, setting up your FTP account and email configuration you should be able to do easily without contacting hosting customer support.

You should be able to access and update your site without taking a lot of effort. You should look for a user-friendly interface to make running your web site easier.


Security and Backup

Internet security is becoming more and more important these days so it is necessary to check the security features of your web hosting provider.

To protect your website from hackers, you need a web host that can provide malware scanning DDOS, strong firewalls, etc. In addition, you should have an SSL certificate for your website. There are many companies that offer a free SSL certificate with their hosting plans.

Backup is another important factor to check in a hosting plan. Your host should provide free backup service so if your site faces any issue, you can restore it easily in no time.


Money Back Guarantee

Every hosting company provider boast of being the best. But if things go wrong with your website, your hosting provider should offer a money back guarantee.

There are some hosting companies that charge a high amount when users cancel their accounts during trial periods. You should avoid such hosting companies that don't offer any refund policy.

This should help you to get a good start on choosing a Web Hosting Provider. And avoid those Web Hosting Review Sites, those are all run by people with Affiliate programs. You will never get an honest review, only the companies that pay them the most.
