Any web-based enterprise ought to have its eye on development, so if a Hosting Company might have difficulty accommodating that growth it could represent an issue. Does the host have VPS or Dedicated Server solutions? Will they have the option to effectively upgrade your account? Transferring from one host to another takes valuable time and exertion which could be avoided if the company can scale their solutions for growth. As with all these factors, do some research, get some opinions, and make an informed decision

Some hosting companies will be taking your site offline always, giving IP address not found and later it returns back.

Pricing should not be about how cheap but flexibility in payment, that is ability to pay per month. Computing hardwares for internet server are not cheap so a good hosting service is not cheap.
