How to Choose a Web Hosting Company for your blog

If you take pride in your blog and you’ve been monetizing it to the fullest of its potential, it’s important that you host your blog on your own domain using a web hosting service. Having your own domain and web host for your blogs increases your “professionalism” and would encourage more advertisers. Here are a few tips on how to choose your web host.

  1. The first thing you need to do is determine your needs. If you’re just starting a blog, estimate how many pages you’re going to built and how many visitors are you expecting. The amount of pages you built and your visitors is need to determine the amount of web space and bandwidth you need.
  2. Once you have determined your needs, you need to shop around for a web hosting company. If you type “web hosting” in Google, you would be bombarded with a variety of choices. In order to determine if any of these web hosts are good, search for “web host review”. There will always be some common company that users recommend. Narrow down your choices to 5.
  3. After narrowing down your choices, try to compare their web hosting plans and choose one that would suit your needs.
