How to find cheap web hosting service? Nowadays, building a website can be done by an ordinary person because of so many cheap web hosting plans that can be found on the market. You can even have a website for free. Therefore, if you want to publish your own website, you don’t need to worry too much. You have a lot of options to choose from, and you simply need to sign up in one of them.

But is it really enough to just decide based on the price of the service? Is it right to sign up for a web host because it is the cheapest of them all? Having a reliable and user-friendly webpage is important if you are managing a business. It lets you connect with your clients or possible investors. It might ruin your business if you use a bad web hosting service.

If you don’t have the budget, it is okay to subscribe to a shared hosting plan, but don’t settle for anything less. Even with a low-priced hosting plan, you can make your webpage better.

There are more important things you should consider other than the price. And here are those things:

  1. Free set up
    Cheap web hosting service is not that hard to set up. Do not sign up for companies that are asking for additional fees. They might just want to earn extra from you since you only need to pay more or less $5 a month for a hosting plan.
  2. Free trial or money-back guarantee
    Signing up for a company that gives you days or a month to evaluate its service is very useful. It will help you decide whether the hosting plan is the right one for your business or not. Plus, you will not worry about losing your money if you are not satisfied with the service. However, not all web hosting providers offer money-back guarantees. Unless the company has a very impressive reputation on web hosting, you should look for the one with trial period.
  3. Features and customization
    You should expect that there are limited features when you avail a cheap web hosting deal. Sometimes, you only get what you need when you upgrade your web hosting plan. So, be sure that most of the features you want for your websites are included on the deal. Otherwise, you will need to pay additional fees.
  4. Technical support
    Shared hosting is vulnerable to technical issues, such as attacks from hackers, server breakdown, slow connection, and many more. As you might experience any of these problems, it is advantageous to get a web hosting plan with a 24-hour person-to-person technical support. Many low-priced services only offer email support. Some just provide section for FAQs or knowledge bases. Go for the web host that you can easily turn to when problems arise.
  5. Bandwidth and space
    In the past, you only get limited bandwidth and space for your website. But because of so many companies competing with each other, numerous services are now offering unlimited bandwidth and space. There are some companies that offer them as free upgrades.

Don’t rely too much on the advertisement or press release of a website. If you think it is what you are looking for, think again. Even if the service is cheap, dependable and excellent, you should still check these two important things before signing up for the hosting plan:

  1. Monthly fee
    Some services only look affordable when they are being offered as a package deal. For example, they offer a web hosting plan for $60 a year. It means the service is $4 a month, but that does not mean that you can avail the service in just 30 days. You have to sign up for an annual web hosting plan for a cheaper fee. You should also check whether the service will give you an additional charge for anything. Sometimes, it only seems cheap because you get an incomplete service.
  2. Terms and conditions
    Just like any other contracts, reading the terms and conditions is very significant. You should know what you are signing up for before giving your money. You might overlook something important such as giving your web hosting provider the copyright of everything you post on your web page.

Do not forget that a cheap web hosting plan cannot fully give you everything you need. It might even cause you security and quality problems. If you are really decided to get a shared hosting service, you should accept its limitations and weaknesses.
