If your site is important to you, you might want to consider some more thorough criteria when choosing a host:
- Extremely cheap is never good value
- Hosts that mention any resource as being unlimited are being economical with the truth
- Companies that don't display a company address, land line and company details are being evasive
- Does the company have a track record and is it well known?
Also, you should always make your own back ups, whether you host with a high quality company or choose to use cheap hosts.
