Web Hosting Reviews for Cheap Hosting

Cheap hosting isn’t difficult to find, however fast and reliable cheap hosting is. I’ve been involved in hosting for over 11 years and I’ve provided IT Consulting for a large number of web hosting companies. I can still remember when hosting first became mainstream in 1999-2000 and it was far from cheap compared to today’s web hosting offers. In the early days of web hosting you would pay $25-$75/month and that would include a small web hosting package that would fill up within days. However, today’s best web hosting companies provide the cheapest web hosting online with unlimited disk space and data transfer. Like anything on or offline you have to be selective if you are searching for a cheap web hosting package.

Cheap Web Hosting Reviews of Unlimited Web Hosting Packages

The first thing that you have to check when you decide on a cheap web hosting provider is the amount of disk space and data transfer or bandwidth. Web hosting providers will often advertise a cheap hosting package, however they make up for it by charging you large overages each month. If you ensure your hosting package includes unlimited disk space and unlimited bandwidth you will avoid costly monthly overages as your website grows.

The second factor is ensuring your website hosting provider offers 24×7 technical support via telephone. Almost all web hosting companies claim to offer 24×7 support, however what they don’t tell you is that certain types of support, such as telephone support, may only be available part time. Don’t settle for a web hosting provider that only offers telephone support during certain hours but claim to offer 24×7 support because you can submit a help desk ticket at any time. This may work for small personal websites, however business websites need to be certain that they can reach a support agent 24×7 by telephone if they have a website emergency. All of the best hosting companies provide web hosting and true 24×7 technical support.

Once you have narrowed your selection down to a cheap web hosting provider that provides 24×7 support there is only one remaining step. You should test the website host by viewing their site. Ensure there website loads quickly. Although your website will be placed on a different server it will give you an idea of the provider’s network speed. Unfortunately there is no way to test the server or load time of your website on a provider until you actually create your web hosting account. Once you create your hosting account upload your files and test viewing the website in a browser.
