Are you planning on starting up a small business or just your own personal website for something and not sure on what host to choose? Consider giving HostMonster a look. Right now they are offering shared web hosting for only $4.95 per month and that’s a steal of a price for sure. Keep in mind, if you are going to start a forum or a regular website that you know will grow huge, I’d say do not go for the shared web hosting and look at other web hosts online such as Hostgator which has VPS server packages and dedicated servers.
What I like about HostMonster is that it’s support is USA based as in you get support techs from USA which is my home country. I really hate when I ask a presales hosting support question on a web hosts live chat feature and they from a 3rd world country that doesn’t understand the tech talk/geek lingo questions I ask or still having trouble understanding the English language.
Part of choosing a host or for me was the support system. Before I even think about spending money and time in setting up shop with a web host for a long period of time, I ask presales questions via. email support and even live chat support to test their response time and knowledge. If there support is bad and not helpful, I will not use them for my web host because I’d get a feeling that they don’t have the brains to maintain its server’s and cause more harm to my site then good. Uptime is the biggest reason for me and health of the server that my shared account will be on with hundreds of other small websites. If you have not been to HostMonsters homepage yet, some of the features included with your account or as follows:
HostMonster Hosting Features

HostMonster does not outsource any work so you don’t have to worry about someone sitting in a dark basement in some 3rd world country getting an email from HostMonster to do the task that you need or give you support. They use world-class technology so you won’t be signing up to a web host that is using servers from 2004 with outdated software and hardware. There is a lot HostMonster has to offer, please visit their homepage and search around to learn more about them. There is a phone number in the top header of the website if you wish to speak to a human to talk about moving to them or purchasing an account. They have been in business for 8 years now and not a new web host trying to make a cheap buck.
