    There are many hosting providers available.It is upto the user to choose the trusted hosting provider.When choosing a host one should look for the reliability,reputation of the host provider.By looking through the user reviews one can get idea about the support that the host provides to its customers.The host should satisfy the customer's demands without ant hidden charges.I chose my host, Thewebpole.com based on the above aspects.



    -------------------------

     That means going for web hosting we need to go through review about that hosting provider ,so can you recommend us a good review provider company about web hosting?

    I am looking for a web hosting service that offers excellent value and service.

     

    I would like help constructing a list of criteria for choosing a web hosting service, and would like to hear webmasters’ recommendations regarding hosting services they have used.

     

    Here are the criteria I have in mind:

    ú         knowledgeable and prompt 24/7 tech support;

    ú         fast and reliable user downloading;

    ú         disk usage 0.5 Gb;

    ú         bandwidth: 5 Gb;

    ú         Urchin 5;

    ú         support for the usual languages (cgi, php, xml, shtml);

    ú         at least one database (mysql with phpmyadmin);

    ú         easy installation of phpBB and WordPress;

    ú         free cms;

    ú         under $20 per month.

     

    I would welcome comments or improvements regarding the above criteria, and evaluations of hosting services webmasters have used.


    First of all, what is that you`re going to be developing. Im not sure what you have planned but 5GB bandwidth is alot if you are just running a simple application (web site). What I recommend is not going with the 5GB bandwidth since you won`t consume most of it, and go with an Un-metered plan instead.
    When I say unmetered it simply means: althought, you do have a cut off at about 750GB, you only use what you need. So let`s say one month for some odd reason your happen to use 100GB, there won`t be an overhead charge. 5GB hard drive space? This is what I call a web-hog, try to get as much as they can when they don`t need that much room. most web sites run just under 10MB`s, remember the database is not counted into the web space (if the hosting company has a database server instead of all-in-one server. Where your web server is your mail, database, and web site server.
    As for the applications, that`s standard for any hosting company. When you say CMS? what type? Mambo? Jumlaa? Sugarcube? Which one do you need?
    • PHPBB
    • WordPress
    • Mambo
    • JumLaa
    • Oscommerce
    • PHPCoin
    • Live Chat
      Again, you are not being through as to why you need so much space?
      In that case you are better off getting a dedicated server or a VPS server. but they run for about $80.00 per month.

    Most free web hosts impose advertising on your website. This is done to cover the costs of providing your site the free web space and associated services. Some hosts require you to place a banner on your pages, others display a window that pops up everytime a page on your site loads, while still others impose an advertising frame on your site.!

    Of course choose a reliable and trustworthy hosting is one of the most important task before you even think about signing up for a web hosting service then you should considered Zenfolio and SmugMug service it gives a good and quality hosting service.

    Hi Krishh,
    For a website to be a success, the role of a web hosting service provider is vital. I would suggest choosing a web hosting service that has the following features.
    1. Economical:  Look for those services which are within the reach of your estimated budget.
    2. Technical Support: Technical support is the backbone of every hosting service provider.
    3. Dependability: Selecting trustworthy hosting services are very important.
    4. Time and Speed:  They are very important factors to be taken care of so that your website is uploaded well in time.
    I would like to share an online tutorial that is very instructive to create a website. Give simple website tutorials a look, here they give information regarding creating a domain name, how to host a website and much more.

    I have used Rackspace in the past. They have 24/7 support and a good user interface. They also offer several options to increase/decrease your hosting account, and fully dedicated servers. I am not real experienced in this area, but I would strongly suggest hosting a website with a company that is completely separate from your web developers. That way they cannot hold your website hostage if you have any type of dispute.

    Yes agree HostGator at $7.95 a month is awesome for an unlimited MySQL databases, Fantastico for easy wordpress, joomla and drupal installs and more.

    What impresses me the most is the very fast tech support - usually within minutes of an email or contacting them at their live site.

    Before you choose hosting you have to check with these

    --Data Transfer (Traffic/Bandwidth)
    --Disk space
    --Multiple Domain Hosting and Subdomains
    --Server
    --Price

    For superb support, uptime and options, check out Kualo for your web hosting needs.

    For serious competitive websites, you'll need SSH (Secured Shell).  Kualo offers that also.

    If you can afford ~$5/mo., check them out!

     

    Good Luck!

    That`s 0.5 GB, not 5GB of disk space.  Is there a provider you are happy with that meets or exceeds the above criteria?
