If you're going to have a website -- and you should -- you need to have a reliable web host. How do you find a web hosting company with the features, support and price that serves your needs? Here are some tips that will help you select the right web host.

Start to worry if your host site or website goes down for a period beyond 24 hours. Generally outages do not last this long, so it could be a clue that there are bigger problems going on with your web host. You can check other websites to find information about your host site's outages, as well as the reason for the outage.

Your domain name should be registered with an outside company. If you register it with your web host and the company goes under, you could end up losing your name. If only your host controls your domain registration, you will not be able to use it any longer.

Avoid choosing the cheapest web-hosting service out there, and certainly think long and hard before you go with a free one. If you are running a business online, your reputation can be severely damaged if you choose an unreliable hosting service. In addition, the free ones will often have advertisements that make it obvious you are not willing to pay for a basic service that is important to your livelihood.

You can choose to have multiple web hosting service providers if you would like in order to maintain IP address diversity. This is important to some people's business to pad security and other reasons. There are several ways to do this, so if it is also your concern, look into using multiple web hosting services.

Before choosing your web hosting service, determine whether or not you will need to use web templates. Many hosts will provide easy to use templates for building your site without the need for HTML knowledge or a professional designer. If you need this service, then choose a host that give a wide range of templates.

A free web host will limit you in the space you can use to store your site, in the number of visitors you get or by adding ads to your site. If you wish to have a professional-looking website and being able to develop it, you should really turn toward a paying service.

Ensure that the web host you choose supports any and all programming languages that your development team uses now, or might use down the road. If you don't have support for the languages used, you cannot launch your site. If you change a programming language to an unsupported one in the future, your web host won't be able to support your site. Switching web hosts is a long and involved process you don't want to have to deal with in the future!

If you are going to obtain a shared web hosting solution, conduct some research on the websites that you will be sharing your server with. You should definitely avoid sharing servers with websites that participate in spam due to the fact that if any of these websites receive an IP address ban from search engines or internet service providers, your website will be banned along with them. Adult websites in particular tend to participate in these kinds of activities.

There are many web hosting companies to choose from, but not all will be suitable for your site. Take the time to compare hosts, and put these suggestions to use as you assess your needs, make comparisons, and ultimately select the right web host with the service and features you need.
