What to Look For in Cheap Domain Hosting?

Jun 27, 2008
Whether you are new to an online business or are a seasoned webmaster, one thing is for certain: web hosting is something you have to have. Many people look at the many cheap domain hosting companies that are available on the market today. Its hard to compare them from one to another. But one thing is for certain, you should never base your decision on choosing cheap domain hosting, just simply because it is cheap.

There are plenty of hosting companies that offer free hosting, but if you are serious about your website/business, this is something you should never consider. There is probably a good reason why these companies offer free hosting. One that comes to mind is that they are probably offering poor service and they realize no one in their right mind would pay them for such low quality hosting. The old saying "you get what you pay for" is very true in this instance. So if you get nothing else from this article, remember this: Do not ever use free web hosting.

Don't get me wrong, though. There are plenty of cheap domain hosting companies that offer excellent service. So you do not have to pay a fortune for web hosting. But you do need to know what to look for otherwise you will be stuck with a web host that just adds problem after problem to your web business.

Choosing a poor host can lead to more troubles than you care to deal with. An example of poor hosting, is usually poor servers. Poor servers can cause your web site to crash. A web site has to be openly available all the time. You never know when you are going to get that customer visiting your site that will buy your product or read your information. All the visitor gets in return is a server error page. That's a sale that was lost just because of poor hosting.

Sometimes, poor hosting can cause your web pages to load painfully slow. In the age we live in now, when most people have high speed internet as well as the fact that there are a million other websites where people can find a specific product or information, nobody is going to wait for a web site to load. People want things quickly. If they have to wait more than 10 seconds to for your page to load. You can forget it. You've probably lost that sale. People in this age do not have as much patience as they once did. They want to know that they can click a link to your website and instantaneously see what you have to offer. Otherwise all they will do is click back and move on to the next site.

When looking at cheap domain hosting, you want to make sure that you can rely on the respective web host. You want to make sure that they have a strong reputation, within the web hosting industry. Although not always, but more often the not, the longer the host has been in business, the more reliable they are going to be. There are some exceptions, but when a web host has been around for 5+ years, you can safely feel that they have built a solid reputation. The majority of the poor hosting companies usually get smoked out within a year and their reputation is so poor that they will be out of business in no time.
