You can compare the features and the price of the top ten companies and choose that company which will provide you the services in accordance to the requirement of your website and that too within your budget.

Also verify about the technicalities that is being provided by the company as in the long run you will need them when your business will flourish. So get down to the procedure of the change but do it wisely.
