How can I find Cheap Web Hosting and still get Quality Service?

Web hosting is a competitive business. However, just because the web hosting is cheap, that doesn't mean that they don't have quality service. Like name-brand clothing, sometimes when you pay more for a big name, you are paying mostly for the name and not for the quality. Most of us want to find the best deal for our money, so it is worth investigating. Look for the following requirements to ensure you have chosen a quality cheap web host.

Disk Space and Applications
First you’ll need to find how much space you will need for your website. Most websites (about 90%) need less than 100 MB's (megabytes) to handle their files and images. A good rule of thumb, the average website shouldn’t cost anymore than $0.10 per MB. If the cheap web host fits within this rule, than you can know you are getting a good deal. Just 5 Bucks Hosting is a great example of a site that easily meets the cost per MB requirement at only $0.05 per MB.

Next, you’ll want to examine the bandwidth. Bandwidth has to do with the data transfer (how fast your pictures and files can be sent to others) and the term for this is Gigabytes (GB). An average web site shouldn’t cost more than $3 per GB. Again Just 5 Bucks Hosting is a low cost host that fits the GB requirements.

Avoid long-term contracts
Look for a low cost web site hosting company that offers monthly contracts so you can test the waters to see if the web host is as good as it seems. is a good example of a low cost host that offers monthly contracts. Some inexpensive hosting sites want you to sign a yearly contract to use their hosting services. You'll want to think twice before signing a long term contract. For example, what if you decide you don't like their service or what if their servers are always down, or what if you want to move to another web hosting company, then you may lose out on months of hosting fees.

Some people think that the more money you pay to a host company the better service you're going to get. I assure you this isn't always the case. Cheap web hosts can have great support, though it is something you will want to check. A good way to find out if the hosting company you are investigating has good support is to sign up for a month and then use their support services often and see what kind of response you receive. Just 5 Bucks Hosting is one of those companies that has an online ticketing system (kind of like email except you enter the question right on the site) so you get fast almost immediate response to your questions.

Many of us are afraid to try things that we don’t know. We will often choose a name brand and pay more just because we don’t know any better. It is definitely worth the time and money to investigate cheap web hosting companies. Who knows, you may just find something that really is “too good to be true.”
