I'm writing a web app as a trial run to learn a new framework.
I'm going to write a little app that makes comparing web hosts easy on a quantitative way and maybe add some features to compare qualitatively.
I'm not going to be hosting any reviews (as that is frowned upon and hard to get by the fake reviews IMO) or having paid advertising for hosts.
What are the top 5 or 10 things you would say are most important when choosing a Cloud based host.
Please give the list in order. I.e. 1 is most important etc. And feel free to list things that are not normally advertised on hosts like age.
(I'll be asking about resellers and other in other sub sections of this forum, so if you'd like to answer for Dedicated or Reseller go to that topic)
