    1. Reputation (includes uptime, support, reasonable policies and upholding of such)
    2. Likelihood of a change of owners/merger
    3. Price

    Point #2 is the really hard one to estimate.
    HostPeek.com - budget hosts, compared
    CouponsNexus.com - web hosting coupons

    1- Reviews & Reputation
    2- Initial 24/7 Support Test (you should test that)
    3- Number of Downtimes per month & How fast they fix them (again, you have to put your feet in the water the first month to test that).

    cathy01/ALL HOSTS,

    If you come to this forum to advertise (like this post is doing), you will be infracted for FLUFF and your thread removed. As the sticky at the top of the forum says, do your marketing in the MarketPlace forum, NOT here.

    THREAD CLOSED.

    Regards,
