Things to consider when choosing a webhost (part 2)

Once your website gets online you hope that it will become successful and receive large amounts of traffic. However you have to be sure to plan for this eventuality. Will you have to switch packages, servers or even web hosts?

Moving web hosts is not as scary as it may sound - providing the host you are switching to is competent.

If your current host is proving hard to get hold of, or if the service or price is poor - switch. The host you use can make a big difference on the future of your site.

A way to avoid this shopping around at a time when you should be doing something else, is to research carefully when you first pick your website. The big companies (i.e. 1&1, HostGator etc), aren't necessarily the best for all sites.

Some hosts specialist in hosting certain types of sites - these hosting providers will also be more readily available to help you with any other issues that may arise with your site or scripts.
