How to Choose the Right Web Hosting Company

You have made up your mind that you will buy a domain name (or
several) and take out web hosting from a web hosting provider.

First some considerations about the domain name(s)

Domain names do not really have anything to do with web hosting and
can be registered independently from the web hosting package. There
are advantages if you have domain name and web hosting separate. For
example, if the web hosting company you selected fails to provide a
good service, all you need to do is find a better web hosting company
and change the domain name settings. If you have domain name and web
hosting with the same company and the company ceases trading, the last
thing they think about is your web hosting or domain name. By having
them separate, you are lowering the risk.
