In today’s hosting market finding a good Web Host can be a very difficult and daunting task. Search a tad and you will find many review sites all advertising the same top hosting affiliate links. You will be inundated by the amount of web hosting companies there are, just waiting to take your money. Today, there are hosts that offer large hosting plans with more space and transfer than you’ll use up in a lifetime and all for a monthly fee of less than a meal at McDonalds would cost you. It is a fact most web sites use less than 50mb of disk space and less than 5 GB of monthly transfer.

It’s time for you to be wise and realistic. If you buy from a host with these large plans you will be disappointed because either you will be stuck on a server that is over crowded and it takes forever for one of your pages to get loaded or your site will be down more than you’d like. Instead, what you should be looking for is a Web Hosting Provider with realistic plans and with fast, friendly customer service. Before signing up with a new web hosting provider, try emailing them with a few questions to see how quick they respond. Ask for uptime statistics, a good hosting company will provide them.
