Hello All!
It's time to ask the age old question:
What do you look for in host?
Well, the question is rather generall, just looking for everybodies individual answer Smile

Great article Daniel.

I like *nix hosting (like Linux instead of Windows-based), so that is one of my main concerns when selecting a host. Economy is other factor. Bandwidth and diskspace are important concerns too, but most accounts usually have more than enough to get a decent little site started. You should be able to upgrade your diskspace or bandwidth with your host easily and hopefully economically too.

Reliability, quality of service and price. That would be what I would look for.

Yes, reliability is very important.

And when your host has been down for 12 hours for the 3rd time this week, you'll probably feel that it's the most important.
