I will put the support in the topmost position on the list provided, then it will comes with the hardware specs you are going to host your site on, so you could be sure of its processing, what configuration is provided to you would be the next one. Cost depends on what you are going to host whether that your site is mission critical or something else. Maximum uptime of the site is what should be checked for.
For me, the determining factor when choosing my current hosting provider was the reasonable price for the packages they offer and the customer support. The friendly attitude when solving their customers’ problems is a great thing.
Yes, I do agree with this. Support does come into this category. If you know that someone is there to help you whenever needed, you can just knock the doors and get the help. Happy client ... Happy webhosters ...
These all factors have gained prominence while selecting the web hosting either cost, support, reputation and more. But technical support is one of the most important factors. It doesn't matter how good your web skills, or how reliable the hosting company, naturally some problem may arise when something will go wrong, or you want some answer of questions. When that time comes, you want to make sure you have an excellent customer service team waiting to answer your queries. If no such team exists, you would face lots of problems and that situation may lead you to select another host.
