It’s not unusual in web hosting world that a web site is down without any reason. How to find a reliable web hosting with affordable price out of the thousands of web hosting is not an easy task for a beginner. Below are 5 very useful tips to find an appropriate web hosting solution:
- Only seek for web hosting service from those have been in the industry for more than 2 years. It’s very hard to verify the reliability of a web hosting service provider for very short period. 2 years will give them enough time to prove their customer service and web hosting technology.
