Why Don't I Just Go With The Cheapest Hosting?

A host has to make a profit to continue operating. Some hosts do not properly understand the market, and may be pricing themselves too cheap. At times you will come across deals that are almost too good to be true - cheap web hosting with amazing features! There are hosts that while offering cheap prices do back that up with excellent performance and service, but there are things to be noted:

  1. Look very closely to what is written in their terms of service (TOS) and acceptable use policy (AUP) documents. Some hosts try to limit the activity of the customer through these two.
  2. Unlimited bandwidth or space. Offering either of those two as unlimited is not really possible, these hosts count on the fact that most people do not use much of either.
  3. The quality of bandwidth and the overall performance. Some hosts scrimp on these to give you cheaper prices. Do a self test - visit the host's website multiple times in a day to see that it remains fast loading.


Just because a host is cheap does not mean that you will receive 'cheap' service, but you must be careful.
