What to Look For in Popular Blog Hosts
Blogging has become insanely popular over the last couple of years with well lover 100 million blogs now on the internet.
While a lot of bloggers are using hosted blog sites such as 'Blogger' or 'WordPress.com' there is a growing trend to have a self-hosted blog – as it allows much greater freedom to the author.
However, what I have found is that a lot of these new bloggers have no idea what to look for when they decide on a hosting company and there are not to many 'popular blog hosts' that are known especially for blogging.
This is why I wanted to take a quick look at a few things that all of the best blog hosts will have – so you know what to look for.
1. A 99.9% Uptime Guarantee – so you know that you website will be available to all your readers.
2. Fantastico Suite – to allow one click WordPress install.
3. Unlimited Space & Bandwidth – This has become common with most hosts.
4. Host A Large Number Of Websites – It is always best to go with popular hosts and there are many companies hosting over 1,000,000 domains.
Another thing that is good to consider is if the company offers some form of money back guarantee. Most of the popular blog hosts now have at least a 30 day money back offer that allows you to test out the hosting before you are committed – and something you will definitely want to look for.
