This article presents suggestions for choosing a web host for a company. Choose the right type. Shared hosting means a company shares one server with a number of clients; the host manages the server, while the company maintains its site and account. Collated hosting requires the purchase of a server from a hardware vendor, which the host plugs into its network. Ask about the ability to block out certain sites and spam as well as protect security issues. Find out how long a host has been in business and if it has gone through multiple owners. Determine that technical support people are actual systems administrators who can resolve such issues.
