Some popular hosting providers are using the price difference strategy to attract those who are intending to buy a web hosting plan. Most of their package price looks low but some hidden fee exists and your web hosting will be overpriced when renewed.

The price for renewal is higher than the sign-up price (new user)
Most of the popular hosting providers published plans at a really low price, but there is no option but to engage for a long-term contract, which means that this price only happens if you prepay for 2,3 years or even longer. Although looking for the cheapest price plans is a way you can potentially save a lot of money, the point is you don’t know how good this hosting provider is. When your site is stuck with them for several years but you’ve found other plans that suit your needs, you will have to wait till the contract ends or migrate with no refund. There is no option for signing up for just 1 month, most basic plans offer at least 1 year or more. When you renew, you’re going to pay more, the billing might jump by more than double what you paid for the first sign-up. It is suggested that you check the price in context and have a price comparison before purchase.

Plan description
Many web hosting may seem to offer similar services with variations in price. But after comparing, you’ll see significant differences. Not all hosting providers offer the same levels of service such as storage, features, stability, scalability, security, and support. Most hosting providers these days prefer using fancy words like “unlimited” and “unmetered” to descript the disk space, bandwidth, parked domain, subdomain, email of the packages, to mislead customers. Since these unlimited values are actually limited in the terms of service, you might receive an email asking you to reduce usage if you exceed the real usage limit. If your site becomes a viral hit, you're probably going to have to pay more to keep your site running.

Advice for you is looking for a reliable hosting provider that offers the price remains unchanged for both new registration and renewal, monthly payment is available, of course, new users always will have some discount, but you should do the renewal price comparison with others, that will let you know which one is cheaper. So carefully choose the right one if you don’t want to be charged more than you expect then.

Well, these are the question you should know:
What is the refund policy during the trial period?
Most providers’ trials are not truly free – you’ll end up paying for the service, but get your money back if you are unsatisfied. That said, what does that refund entail?

It is important to compare the differences between various services and choose which one provides what you are searching for in consideration of your goal.
These are some considerations to make while selecting the finest web hosting services:
1. Uptime: If you don't want your visitors to be kept waiting, always go with a firm that has an uptime of more than 99 percent.
2. Data security: the most critical feature of every website.
3. Customer support: While most web hosting companies provide customer support, search for firms that offer 24x7 help to ensure that all of your difficulties are resolved as quickly as possible.
4. Reviews: Always look at what their customers have to say about their service.
5. Bandwidth: If you anticipate a significant volume of traffic, seek a high bandwidth plan.

These are some of the factors to consider when selecting a web hosting company for you.

I don't suggest making SSL Security a choice, rather a must have.

I guess the so-called smart marketing strategy is plain unethical but unfortunately, many companies rely on that. After making sure that the company has a clear refund policy and is not hiding any cost, the next step is to check the reviews on sites like Trustpilot or G2.
 
Hey there!
In my years of experience as a technical support engineer, I've realized that any hosting provider, no matter how big or small, should have a few essential features, such as;
1. Safety & Reliability
When your website goes down, so does your visitor count. Losing visitors means losing money, members, and reputation. You cannot afford even a brief website outage! Instead, find out how many clients they have (the more, the better), whether they have a guaranteed up-time, check for complaints about them online, and ask other users about their experience.
2. Speed
Nobody loves to wait in line for something they want now or yesterday. Your visitors will leave if your site loads slowly due to a crowded server or a sluggish network. Make it lightning quick. Test the web host's site and some of their clients' sites.
3. Space
Make sure you have adequate space for your website's needs. Get plenty of webspace.
4. Available Bandwidth
Bandwidth is basically what web pages are. They shut down or charge you extra if you have too much traffic or bandwidth. So that no one consumes up all of the server resources. Ensure your new web host permits you to acquire extra bandwidth if needed.
5. Customer Support
If you have an issue with your web host, you need to be able to contact someone quickly. Inquire about their support hours and how simple it is to contact someone.
6. Features & Technology
Make sure your website has all the choices you need. Examine their control panel, authorized sub-domains, programming language support, databases, and if it runs on Windows or Unix.
7. Payment Plans/Pricing
There are exceptions to every rule, but you generally get what you pay for when it comes to web hosting. Watch out for cheap hosting companies that nickel and dime you for standard features on most hosts.

Great tips has been shared but what about the Uptime SLA? Is it essential for hosting?

There are numerous facets to consider when choosing a hosting provider. Here is some advice to help you choose the right one for your business:

1. Determine your needs. Do you need a simple host or a more sophisticated platform?

2. Consider the features offered by the individual provider. Some providers offer more features than others, which can be necessary depending on your business needs.

3. Evaluate the pricing and terms of each provider. Are the prices reasonable? Are the terms specific to your needs?

4. Evaluate customer service and support. Is customer service available 24/7, and is it responsive to your needs? Can you trust the support team to answer your questions promptly?

Choose a hosting provider according to your web hosting requirements. Check their online reviews and compare plans with others.

Check if their plans cover what you need before buying.

Check the plans in your budget range

If everything sounds good, go for it.

A lot has already been said here, so I can add one more important detail to this list for me personally. If we tell about payment - the biggest part of web hostings has a refund plan. So if you are unsatisfied - you can obtain your money back.
But this does not work for everyone, and not in all tariff plans.

These are some of the basic features you always look for. if any provider provides you with these features you should choose them.
