As someone who builds the occasional website, this is a question I ask myself often. The first thing for me is reliability. Is my website going to be available when someone wants to look at it. Will it deliver the content efficiently without breaking my wallet.
I recently stumbled across a hosting platform called NuWeb Hosting. The first thing that I noticed was their great pricing structure. NuWeb offers basic hosting starting at just $2.00 per month. With 20 email address and 100 gigs of bandwidth available every month, the basic plan will handle more websites. For those that need more horsepower, that have a plan that will meet your needs including VPS and dedicated servers.
But the true test is reliability. With a stated up time of 99.9% and redundant backup including revisions for the past 90 days, you can be assured that your website is always available and safe. The company is based in Cincinnati, OH with additional server locations in Atlanta, GA and Ontario, Canada
NuWeb also offers a 30 day money back guarantee, 24/7 phone support and guaranteed ticket responses in less than 1 hour. For more information, go to http://www.nuwebhosting.com/
