'Top Tips on Finding the Ideal Web Host' - any further essential criteria missing?
I've written an article with advice on finding the ideal web host for your needs. As this is the web's leading forums for hosting, I thought I'd ask the members here if there are any other important factors to consider when choosing a web host?
I've added that as a factor worth considering, as point 9:
"Addendum: as suggested by 'gingir' on Webhosting Talk forums, you should investigate how long the web host has been in business. With around 95% of small businesses closing down within five years of opening, you could be taking a risk by using a hosting provider that has not been around for a substantial period of time. It's also worth investigating how financially stable the business is; in most Western countries you can look up company accounts online."
