Web Hosting Check List

Below is a check list when I look for a web hosting service.

1. Is disk space > 200 MB?

2. Traffic per month > 1 GB?

3. SSI?

4. Password-protected directory?

5. CGI/Perl/PHP?

6. mySQL database?

7. Fantastico (optional)?

9. Cpanel (Optional)?

10. Add-on domains (Optional)?

11. SSH access (Optional)?

12. Cron (Optional)?

13. Unix/Linux Based (Optional)?

Things to watch out:

-- Does it mention 99.9% Uptime anywhere?

-- Does it mention money back somewhere?

-- 24/7/365 or Live Support?

-- Read the "About Us" page to figure out if this is a one-man company running from this guy's house.
