Buying hosting does not have to be intimidating. In fact, it is easier than ever! But with ease comes a lot of choices. It seems that domain hosting is everyone and everyone claims to be bigger, faster, and cheaper than the next. Big, fast and cheap is not always the best, though.

Understanding what your needs are in a host is the first step. Know that about 98% of people first looking to buy a host need very little! What I mean is that they don\'t need the huge bandwidths, or large data storage space or 100 databases, etc. TheWebReviewer, for example, contains less than 1GB of storage and uses less than 20GB of Bandwidth per month...and we have a quite a respectable amount of traffic, including some large sized videos and documents.

The point? Don\'t be pressured into getting more than what you need. And most companies can very easily upgrade your package at the end. So what should you look for?
