There are so many companies offering hosting that it can be a little difficult to know who to choose. We recently switched one of our websites to a new hosting provider due to reliability issues and so far have found that we have very few problems with the new provider. After a lot of research on hosting rating websites we went with 1and1 because they received good ratings for up time and support, two things which for me are most important. Not being very technical myself, I found it useful to be able read some reviews by real customers to give me a better idea of what sort of service I could expect from each hosting provider before making a decision. Whilst my husband ultimately made the final decision as he pays for the hosting I guess for me I feel happier relying on other peoples recommendations. How do you choose a hosting provider?
