Choosing a web host

I've recently been toying with the idea of setting up a traditional website, to complement one or other of my blogs. I've tried a number of free web hosts in the past, but they've almost always had reliability issues, or restrictions which limited functionality. Unfortunately, trying to find a reliable and cheap web host can be time-consuming, as there are simply so many web hosts in business nowadays. So how can a would-be web host make the best decision regarding their web host?

When choosing a web host, it helps to visit a well-informed web hosting review site, such as Web Hosting Geeks. This particular site offers impartial and informative reviews of various web hosting services, and you can also check out customer reviews, which give you even more information with which to make an informed decision. The site lists web hosts by category, and makes recommendations about the best hosts within those categories. You will be offered information about dedicated hosting, business hosting and budget hosting, to name but a few.

The Web Hosting Geeks site also has a blog packed with useful information for web masters, including advice on how to keep your business website safe from hackers and criminals. All in all, this is a very useful site for anyone looking for a web host. It saves you a lot of time, as you don't need to spend hours searching online for a host, and also offers webmasters a great deal of free, useful information about many aspects of running a web site. It's certainly worth checking out before you take the plunge and purchase a hosting package.
