While selecting a web hosting service, please remember the following things to which you must keep your eyes and ears open so that you can avoid your problems in future.

Bandwidth: Web hosting services offer anything between 100 MB to 100 GB of bandwidth. But, what bandwidth you choose depends on your web design, number of pages on your website, estimated traffic per month to your website, and the advertising displayed on it. 100 MB is very little even for personal use. A bandwidth of around 3 GM is recommended for personal-use websites.

Advertising: Many web hosts, specially those providing free hosting services, expect your site to carry certain types of advertising display. They may be banner ads, pop-up windows when a webpage uploads, or side-panel ads. Among some of the limitations that free hosting services impose are maximum sizes of files uploaded, or even the format  of images, whether GIF or JPEG.

Web-based FTP services: Look out whether the host services provide you with FTP access to upload your file. If you are going in for free hosting, ensure that your file can be uploaded on a browser.

Disk space: Hosting services provide anything between 50-5000 MB disk space, depending on what hosting packages you opt for. Packages may also include providing free domain names, sub-domains, and email accounts. However, while choosing hosting services donít be enticed by the larger volume of disk space. If your website would not be using very heavy image files continuously, you would not need disk space of more than 5-10 MB.
