Web Hosting by PickaWeb

Blogging in a free blog hosting provider is an option for you who have no budget to buy your own domain and a hosting space. I had my blog runs in a free blog server and now it has Pagerank of 4. As you know that you can monetize your pageranked blog by selling links or for paid review.s I lost that opportunity because of the TOS (term of service) of the provider states that I can not monetize my blog if using their free service.

If you have a vision about your blog as well as its future, you should consider about having your own domain name and hosting space. Domain name and hosting space are cheap now so you do not need a lot of money just to start your own blog. The next question is where to buy domain and hosting.

How To Choose Web Hosting?

Choosing web hosting is not easy because there a lot of web hosting providers available on the net. The offer web many products and services with different price. A package in company A maybe the same as company B has, but in different price. One is cheaper.

In order to find the right web hosting, here is the checklist:

  • Prices
    You should find web hosting which suite with your budget. If none available, try to increase your budget :D
  • Quality of service
    You should concern about quality. Your website must have no downtime. You can search users’ testimonials on the net. The quality also determined by the quality of network and the server hardware.
  • Customer Support
    Everyone wants to be special. You as a customer should be handled well by the company. If you have a problem with your account, then customer support is the one you should contact. Good customer supports a good point for a company.
  • Company reputation
    How long the company have runs the business also effect on their experience on handling services to customers. New companies maybe have a good reputation also or maybe you want to give them a chance.
  • Company location
    Actually there is no problem to choose a web hosting that far away from you. The problem occurs when you need to make a phone call conversation. Long distance phone call will cost you much.
  • What people are saying
    What people says about the company is another thing you should consider. Even there are true in fact or not, but it will help you to decide to order or not.
