Question

Your top 5 or 10 criteria when choosing Cloud based Hosting?


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)

As Nich mentioned. It's for different crowds.

Wouldn't quite call it spam myself.

I'm not asking for suggestions or feedback for a product or service. The closest that might come is saying "suggestion for a service". And that is pretty far fetched.

Not really. You are asking for input for a service you are creating. Anyways, I am not going to say anything more on this topic. Good luck

What if I've developed and I'd like feedback. Are there any parts of this forum where that's allowed?

Asked our sales team for some feed back for you.

1. How many servers in the cloud.
2. How are the servers connected. Copper or fiber.
3. Do we have a SAN or not.
4. How are backups done and how often.
5. Brand of hardware we use.
