How do we know a good web hosting service from a bad one? What features should we be looking for when choosing a web host? What is bandwidth or transfer? How much storage space do we really need?

Before doing business with anyone on the web that is going to be as important to our business as a web hosting company, we should do a search on the name of the company and look for criticisms, complaints, etc.

we should remember in mind no one has 100% satisfied customers and finding just one complaint on the web doesn’t mean that the company is a bad one. However if we find a lot of complaints, we would move on to the next provider.
The bandwidth and transfer question wis have it’s importance also. Bandwidth and transfer are basically the same thing. Some tech guy might know a difference but in real it must not be much difference.
The size of our webpages in kilobytes plus the size of each graphic or other type of file that is served to the users computer is the amount of transfer we are using. If our website will have a lot of graphics, movies, downloads, etc.,
How much storage space do we need? The storage space is no different than our computer’s hard drive. If the web host offers 100 megabytes of storage space that is just like having a 100-megabyte hard drive. If our files are not more than 100 megabytes then that is plenty of storage.
How do we contact tech support there? Just email? Is there a phone number? Do they use support tickets? Do they have a chatroom or forum for tech support? How accessible our web hosting tech support is will determine how fast things get fixed when we have a problem.
Those three important issues, bandwidth, storage space, and tech support are not the only things we need to consider. Do they offer Cpanel or an easy to use control panel for managing our website?
