3 things to look at when picking a web host

For example, if your site is slow to load or down, your customer might look for another site, most likely a competitor.

Shared hosting platforms are best for bloggers or small websites. Web Hosting Hub (see review) offers shared hosting making it cost effective.

They cater from small to big businesses. For more information on web hosting, visit Web Hosting Provider List.

Even if you’re using a shared web host, all webmasters should be very security conscious.  While it’s true that you have to think about it far less than someone who owns a dedicated, or VPS plan, security should still be your top priority when owning websites.  One major flaw I commonly see is people putting multiple domains on to a single user account in cPanel.  This exponentially increases your risk of attack with each website added on to the same account.  Let’s take a look at why... (more...)
