Do not join a host without testing out their services.
Some Scam Plans are-
If it sounds too good too be true it usually is! All hosts have the same basic limitations when it comes to server resources and specs. There is no magic server that has a never ending supply of RAM and CPU.
If a host ever claims to give unlimited space or bandwidth DO NOT JOIN THEM. The thing to remember is that the average web site uses about 50 Megs space and less then 1 gig bandwidth a month.
Resource usage has to do with the amount of CPU and RAM a site uses. If a site uses a lot of bandwidth they aren’t kicked for using their bandwidth they are kicked for using up most of the servers cpu and ram. Another thing to remember is that the cheaper the plan is, and the more space / bandwidth included the more sites per server the host will have to pack in to make their money back.
So the lesson here is don’t shop for a host based on their plans! You should shop based on recommendations and experience!
About Paying Yearly
Another thing you’ll notice is that most of these incredible scam plans force you to pay for a year up front to get the good pricing.
Why would a hosting company care if you pay monthly or yearly? After all if you’re happy with them you’re going to end up staying much longer than a year.
ONLY PAY MONTHLY! We have one plan that requires a year payment up front (hatchling) why? Because most hosts advertise a low monthly fee if paid yearly and a much higher price if monthly. We still need to be competitive so we made one plan showing this option. We would however prefer you sign up for a monthly plan.
Remember paying yearly to anyone is always a bad idea, but the choice is yours.
