Finding a Reliable hosting service is not a easy task. There are dozens of hosting service provider and everyone is screaming “We are the best”. So how to choose which one is your perfect match ?
3 points to remember before buying a hosting plan –
1. RAM allocated 2. Support Service 3. Renewal charge.
- RAM :
Some hosting providers like GoDaddy does not show the exact amount of RAM allocated to your plan. Low RAM leads to slow website speed. If you have High-resolution media for your website, you must have a Good hosting service provider who is ready to give at least 1 GB RAM for your website.

The real pain is 2/3 portion of hosting providing companies answer your email within 24 Hours and this time can extend upto 72 Hours depending upon the type of issue occured. Simply you will loose your precious time and energy within this time or you will feel useless. That is why always choose a reliable provider with a top class customer support. If you want ask us, Godaddy is the leader in terms of Customer support and service.
3.Renewal charge :
Different companies use different tactics to grow their profit. Most of the companies charge very less on the 1st year, but as soon as you want to renew the hosting service they will ask for 2x or 3x of the amount of hosting charges you paid for the first year. As you have already invested time and labour and written those posts, attracted customers; it won’t be feasible for you to move the whole website to a different host. Eventually, you will end up paying a huge amount of renewal charge. So choose a Hosting company which perfectly meets these 3 criteria and you are good to go.
