What is hosting and what is it used for. First of all, you need to decide for what purposes you need it, and only then after looking at all the rules and possibilities of the provider to rent it. The main thing is not to forget to pay for your domain.

It is because of forgetfulness and savings that I buy hosting for 3 years (you can of course for a year, but in the tariff for 3 years you can save up to 75%). Regarding the choice of a hosting provider, not everything is so obvious here. Yes, there are many companies offering server rental, but you didn't quite correctly say that from choosing a goal, you must also choose a provider, although there is also a grain of truth there. In any case, a normal company has a lot of both specific server packages and offers unique features for your needs. When choosing, I focus on two parameters - how quickly they answer me and what service packages they offer.


And my choice of hosting is simple enough: I take the first five best providers, compare the conditions and prices, check the required services and services, pay for several years in advance.
And yes, as rightly noted above, in this case the savings can exceed half or more of the monthly rate.

Exception: sometimes the customer needs specific services, in which case I "change" previously selected and reliable providers. :)

I can advise you to compare all web hosting services, as it is a top priority for your new web host business to be well-provided with all necessary tools.

In general, if you are afraid to forget to renew your hosting or domain, you can enable the auto-renewal function. But many then complain that they cannot refuse the extension, so it's up to you.


The big thing for me is the uptime, and reliability, alongside good prices (in comparison with quality) and I also like to see some good support just for peace of mind.

The comparison will help you to choose the right option to use for hosting.
I know and also are perfect web hosts. The combination of quality and cheapness makes them attractive for the greater part of the web masters.


Ideal hosting for any project:

Fast and fault-tolerant.
With maximum Uptime (the time of continuous operation of website).
Sufficient disk space is provided.
A decent level of technical support is provided.
Additionally, depending on the type of site (personal page or large portal), you may be interested in:

Selection of additional services provided by the host.
Additional protection against hаckers and DDoS attacks.
Low cost of services.
Let's consider some of the points.

Channel speed. The higher it is, the faster your site will load in users' browsers. Often, the "marketing" speed indicated in the advertisement may differ from the actual one, so try to find out from the hosting provider about the quality of the server equipment and the level of its workload. Modern equipment of data centers is guaranteed to withstand high loads on the site.

Maximum Uptime. First of all, it is worth remembering that 100% Uptime does not happen. 10-20 minutes of unavailability of the site per month is an indicator of a stable hosting provider. To find out this indicator, it is useful to read the reviews of real consumers on the forums of hosts and independent resources.

A comfortable amount of disk space. This indicator depends on the tariff plan, and of course, the price/quality ratio can vary greatly from different providers. Large providers can also provide unlimited disk space, for example, from REG.RU there are unlimited tariffs at a price of 179 rubles per month.

High-quality technical support. Even if everything else in the hosting provider's offers suits you, before choosing a hosting provider, call its technical support. Ask all the questions you are interested in and evaluate for yourself the level of training of employees and the promptness of their response.

Additional services. Here you can decide for yourself what additional services you may need. Moreover, hosts are ready to provide a variety of solutions for free, just bundled with hosting. For example, if you need to quickly create a website from scratch, find a tariff with a free website builder like Parallels Web Presence Builder.

The cost of web hosting. Although small resellers can provide a substantial discount on their services, large players in the Internet hosting market provide much greater reliability of its functioning. So, if the stability of the functioning of the site is important to you, it is better not to save too much on it.
