Well let me start this way, a lot of people don't know why we need web hosting packages, some people feel web hosting ids just another Internet thing, while others feel web hosting is an opportunity for some people to make out something i.e. money making.
But lets ask ourselves what is WEB HOSTING. Web hosting is the ability to move a business or information, product content, research to the Internet. Also a web host is the person who offers web-hosting services to clients, persons or business
Web hosting has many benefits, among them is
1. Advertising your business ideas and potentials on the internet; in today's world more and more people are driven by the need to have Information, on anything from Tourism, to potential businesses, the safest Banks etc
2. Web hosting also provides jobs for people who can act as resellers for web hosting companies or act as server based Network or Affiliates to other web hosting companies who pay commissions to such clients.
So far web hosting is a million dollar business as it attracts more and more people by the day. One good thing you should do is to choose web-hosting companies that will offer you other services like free domains or web space, web designing script management and web templates. The choice of a web host is another great concern. A lot of people have fallen prey to bad web hosting companies, some web hosts are not so efficiency as they seem and kill so many business. I have seen an instance where a web host who had thousand of clients because of Spam killed their business forcing thousands of their clients to go else where, so to solve such problems one has to avoid such crisis.
One great way of avoiding such problems is to listen to people and find out from people who have hosted their services on the Net, how efficient their web host is. Don't be too attracted to web host that are so cheap and fall prey to their services. Some web hosts are very slow to upload while others enjoy great benefits because they had a listening ear. No doubt, there is no site that will enjoy 100% trouble free operation, but a key fact to find out is how often your site is down. Another thing is never be in a hurry to change a web host always lay your troubles to other people who are in the business and find out how they cope with such problems.
For me patience is the key, never be too in a rush in choosing a web host and don't play it down on cost. Of course everyone would love to be very fast and act right in changing hosts as long as the problem persists.
Finally, I would recommend two web hosts that can stand the test of time as having being efficient for a long while.
