choosing good and affordable hosting planConfused how to choose a good and affordable hosting plan? Well I am here today to share some tips with you. I will write everything in the simplest form I can and understandable to non-technical person also. Read this post seriously to get tips and tricks on how to get a good hosting plan with affordable price. Let’s start this guide right away!

You don’t need to inside out of hosting plans, you need to know how good and how different it is from others. Price, quality, flexibility and quality are the most important factor you need to look while choosing a hosting plan. I’ll explain below how to evaluate these.


The price of the hosting plan is depending on the quality of service. Many companies offer good and cheap hosting plans these days. I suggest picking hosting plans from top companies like Bluehost and Hostgator.I am currently using both of them and never had any problem with them; their technical support team are too good 24/7. Hostgator offers unlimited domains add-on for $6.36 and blue host offers the same in $6.95. Prices varies for different companies offering different plans.


Nobody can cover everything about good hosting plans here, you need to know the standard of it. I suggest a good hosting plan with cPanel, MySQL – version 5+, Fantastico and PHP5.

  • · cPanel – cPanel is a Unix based web hosting control panel that provides a graphical interface and automation tools designed to simplify the process of hosting a web site. cPanel utilizes a 3 tier structure that provides functionality for administrators, resellers, and end-user website owners to control the various aspects of website and server administration through a standard web browser.

In addition to the GUI interface cPanel also has command line and API based access that allows third party software vendors, web hosting organizations, and developers to automate standard system administration processes.

cPanel is designed to function either as a dedicated server or virtual private server and it supports CentOS, Red Hat Linux, and FreeBSD.

Application-based support includes Apache, PHP, MySQL, Postgres, Perl, and BIND (DNS). Email based support includes POP3, IMAP, SMTP services. cPanel is commonly accessed on port 2082, with an SSL-secured server operating on port 2083.

  • Fantasctico – Fantastico is a commercial script library that automates the installation of web applications to a website. Fantastico scripts are executed from the administration area of a website control panel such as cPanel. Fantastico’s web site claims that they are installed on ten thousand servers, with a million users worldwide.

Fantastico scripts are usually executed when a new website is created, or a new application is added to an existing website. The scripts typically create tables in a database, install software, adjust permissions, and modify web server configuration files. Although Fantastico primarily targets open-source software, a handful of scripts are also available that install proprietary products. Once installed, these are available to all of the domains hosted by a physical server; such as web site builder SohoLaunch, PerlDesk customer support software, and AccountLab Plus software for interacting with Internet registrars.


If you’re looking forward to build a business website, then it’s very important for you to know how reliable is the hosting plan you’re going to use.

  • Uptime close to 100% – High uptime makes sure your visitors can always reach you by your website, thus not losing any opportunity to make sales.
  • Great support – you need to know does the hosting plan come with technical support. If yes, then how and when you can reach them? Nowadays, most of the hosting companies provide technical support to their customers but not all of them provide quality support. So, always keep your eyes sharp and read reviews for the company before you decide to choose the hosting plan.


When traffic goes high to your online business, I suggest switch to a better hosting plan. Keep in mind these three question while choosing a good hosting plan:

  • · If needed, can I upgrade to a better hosting plan in future. Is it easy?
  • · What is the cost of upgrading my current plan to a better plan?
  • · How easy is to transfer the files, database, emails, etc. to another hosting company?

I am over now! Above are the tips I want to share with you to help you to choose a good hosting plan for your online business. I don’t want you to confuse with many other information, so I have shared only important points with you. Got a question, idea or tip?? Leave a comment below and I’ll answer you.

    We would like to rent a dedicated Windows 2003 VPS server with its own dedicated IP.

    1) We would like to be able to send 100,000 emails (each 35 KB) over 24 hours (all emails are designed to attract new customers for my translation business). Which of your plans would you recommend ?

    2) Would it be possible to send any complaints to us so that we can be deal with them immediately ?

    3) Since we do not have relevant experience in configuring NS1 and NS2, we wonder whether you would be able to do that for us; please tell us what you would charge ?

    Thank you.

    Best regards

      Hi John, I recommend Hostgator, and their customer support are so good that they will help you to configure your NameServers (for free).
