How to choose a web host

I have been researching on web hosting providers available since more than 3-4 years. And even today whenever I’ve free time or whenever I get distracted I click on those web hosting ads while surfing around. I researched a lot but I dont regret it.
When I decided to move my blogs to personal website, with my name in url, I had to buy sever space to host my websites/blogs. And to do that I had to choose the perfect web hosting company.


I was very cautious while selecting and finalising the web host service website where I would run my websites from. So I looked as many webhosting firms as I could & searched for bad or negative comments. I was looking for a service provider with zero negative remarks. I think that was easy to scrutinise because you find at least one bad comment from un-satisfied customer anyways. But it was not quick task as there’re plethora of webhosting service providers, plus there’re resellers and local agents. It’s a big market for website hosting, online server and data center industry.
I had few criteria already set that brought down the number by almost half.

  • I wanted shared hosting server.
  • I wanted a webhost account where I can park and host multiple (preferably unlimited/ 10+) domain names.
  • I wanted great customer support and “online chat” feature was must.
  • I didn’t want to use local service providers of any Indian resellers in general. (yes, Indian webhosting companies have long way to go before they could provide the worldclass service.
  • Basically I wanted flexibility, freedom, support, so Yahoo was out of question.

However there’re general selection criteria, such as, Checking whether the webhost only host clean websites or not, else you might end up in the blacklist of Google/yahoo etc. If your website using shared IP address, your emails might be treated as spam & directly go to junkmail box if other websites on your IP are ‘spamming around’.  There’re are special webhosting companies who host pornographic, warez, file-storing websites, which involves heavy traffic and needs lots of storage space. Better stay away from them.
I’m not claiming that these are the best rules (/criteria) to select a webhosting services. You can have your own selection criteria, it can be different but the point is you should list what are your needs and what exactly you’re looking for and I’m glad that you’re reading this page now. 🙂 The reason for researching before deciding your web hosting service provider is the commitment period is usually long, if you pay for long-term *say more than 1year rather than paying per month, you’d save atleast a dollar per month with most of the shared hosting.
After a lot reading on net and research I signed up with BlueHosts shared hosting.
Bluehost is safe, reliable, best in support, pre-sales queries, literally 24×7 costumer care by online chat. You get flexibility to do anything on your website, e.g. run forums, blogs, photo gallery, all scripts are automatically installs and are free of cost! So, what are you waiting for? I’ve had a dream of running my own website & I’m doing it at affordable cost with bluehost!

webhosting affiliates commission fraud.

I just received an email (the spam) offering me $40 just for signing up to new web-hosting company.
Here’s the transcript of the mail I got:

I will pay you $40 to your PayPal within 24 hours if you sign-up with a web-hosting website for just $0.01 with your own PayPal.
You just have to spend $0.01 from your PayPal to earn the $40 from me by PayPal.
Are you interested ?
If yes …..
1. Then plz go to : [ http://www.commission link] and on that page on the left-below, you’ll see a plan called “Personal” and a little below it, there is an
“Order Now” button. Click on it.
2. Now click on the “I will update my nameservers on an existing domain Or I will register a new domain.” radio-button. After that remember one of the domain
name you own and enter it in the blank field saying “www”. Then click on “Click to Continue”.
3. On the next page, click on “Add to Cart”.
4. On the next page, enter the coupon “1CentPersonal” (without the double quote) in the “Promotional Code” field. And then click on “Validate Code”.
5. Then you will see that the Total price has come down to just $0.01. (The $6.99 fee is to be deducted from next month and you will cancel this subscription

9. Here you will see that the website is charging you only $0.01 and a small monthly fee of $6.99 payable after 30 days. This is a subscription. That website
will automatically deduct a monthly fee of $6.99 from the next month.
IMPORTANT NOTE : You will accept this $0.01 payment and the $6.99 subscription (payable after 30 days) for the time being only but after 7 days, you will
have to cancel the $6.99 monthly subscription, so that I can recover my affiliate fee from that website.

After this, plz send me an invoice of $40 by PayPal to me to [email address] and write your email adress with which you have signed-up with that
website in the “Message” field (so that I can verify whether you have indeed signed-up or not) and within 24 hours, I will pay you $40 to your PayPal.

[The name of the spammer]

You can see the ad on this website about BlueHost webhosting, yes it’s one of the ads I publish on every page of this blog. & it pays more commission per signup/conversion than this spammer offers so it means that anyone can do such spamming & make money. Most of webhosts I know who offer affiliate programs pay more than this spammer has to offer (~$65) So, I think web hosting companies should make more robust plan to stop such loop holes.
I hope you’re hearing bluehost!! (My webhost) 😀
