How to Choose a Web Hosting Service

When it comes to playing the Internet Money Game there will come a time when you will want to set up your own website.
The number one factor when looking for a hosting service is reliability
Followed closely by the quality of customer service and then the pricing.

This quick guide is designed to point you in the right direction quickly so that you don't have to do all of the research and testing that I have already done over several years and you can rest assured that your site will be up and running in the shortest amount of time possible, won't cost you the earth and you will be able to get quick help and reliable support whenever you need it - 24/7

There are a few things to look for in a hosting service which will make your life much easier. One very important thing when playing the internet money game is to make sure that your hosting service provides the tools you will need to manage your account. My choice and my opinion is that nothing beats the ease and user frieldly hosting control panel called Cpanel.
wikipedia entry for Cpanel

For me this is simply a "must have" as it makes looking after your site simple, quick and you dont have to be a technician. Anybody can use its user friendly graphical interface.

Cpanel is a control panel that gives the user complete control including the ability to manage every aspect of your website from email accounts, mailing lists, site statistics, databases and more using nothing more than your web browser (Internet Explorer, firfox ect). It also allows you to setup mysql databases, upload and manage files. change permissions on files and a whole range of other factors.

There also exists an ADDON for Cpanel that not all hosting services include but again for me it is simply a MUST HAVE FEATURE!

the Cpanel Addon - Fantastico
Check this list of things that you can install

with just a few clicks you can install entire ready to use websites without uploading a single file, Just a couple of clicks if your host provides fantastico.
wikipedia entry for fantastico

For bloggers Fantastico is extremely usefull as it will enable you to instantly install WordPress Blogs as well as a range of other instant blogs, and even templates for complete turnkey websites, theres forums, shopping carts, content management systems, at last count there were over 50 different applications which can be installed with fantastico in a few quick clicks.

So where Do I get Hosting with these features?

Through the years I have used many different hosting services, I have worked in ISP's that provide hosting and I have even ran my own hosting service. Many of the services I have used provide very poor customer service when there are issues or if your simply having some trouble with getting somthing to work in your account .The main reason for this is that there are a massive number of small hosting services out there that may look profesional on their website, but at the end of the day they are not ACTUAL HOSTS, rather they are resellers and their hosting service is simply being run by people just like you and me who using a "shared server" and they don't actually have total access to the server, they dont have the proper training, knowledge or ability or access and fix problems and to get anything done they have to go to the REAL HOSTS support.
So my advice is to avoid small hosting services and one man operations especially if your intention is to build up a solid website for making you money. The last thing your site will need is downtime and interuptions as your traffic grows. This is somthing that I learned the hard way, having used several cheap services, even ones I found on ebay that seemed too awsome to pass up. Its true what they say: If it sound too good to be true then it most likely is!

Now with much more experience under my belt and after having been burnt many times with bad servers and bad customer service I can say with honesty that there are only a few hosting services that are reliable, cost effective and provide the all the tools you need for playing the internet money game such as cpanel and fantastico along with top knotch easily accesible customer service that stand out head and shoulders above the rest and they are hostgator and Godaddy!


Now for all of my own sites I use the following services

GoDaddy Hosting just $1.99/mo! 120x60

Great for Domains and

Use coupon code: demonstoned
To get $$9.94 of any package
Or grab the monthly "Baby" for $9.95 and get the first month for Just 1cent !

World Super Host Web Hosting Service

World Super Host is actually my own reseller account for Planet Domains.
I don't host many sites here although I do have a couple and they do provide great service and Cpanel but no fantastico however they are the best place to Manage your domains, especially if you have multiple domain names and you can even sell domains by becoming a reseller yourself.

I handle all my domain names here but use hostgator for the majority of my hosting accounts and a couple at GoDaddy.
Again I say make your own choices and do some research of your own before you make a choice, just be careful if trying an unknown webhost because its a nightmare when your trying to do things on your site and it keeps going down and nobody responds to your pleading for answers...
