Such is the nature of online business that it’s a genuine problem nowadays locating a decent web Hosting Company. Other, here I would attempt to provide a guide on how to go about finding best web hosting company. A simplest search pattern could be:-
– While googling, go a bit deep, do not just rely upon top ones. Try to avoid such words as “ cheapest web hosting company in Canada”
When you begin further details, look for:-
Features. These could be:-
o Shared or Dedicated Hosting: In shared hosting the server is shared by many companies like you hence to cost is low. Dedicated server is expensive. If your demands are not very high and / or if you do not understand your requirement, there are all the chances that you need shared hosting.
Space / Bandwidth. Try to define what you need, e.g. for a normal business site, you should not get impressed with 50 GB disk space and 500 GB bandwidth. Web Space and monthly bandwidth are in consequential in most cases.

What sort support is being offered by web hosting company, ie email, ticketing, telephone, live chat, toll free telephone. Give an extra point for each one administration advertised. To start with, you may not need all these service. However, in long run, its better to have such service provider having all these options.
Note the reaction time to your requirements to them. Better ones should respond almost instantly. (An auto responder may not be considered as response; however, I would give marks for effort to the company using any such thing).
Call at odd hours, late night or early morning etc to see, if they respond with same speed at all times.
Price/ Cost. Its not that the one who are expensive are good nor the ones who are very cheap would be able to afford good higher costs required for better service. Better is to stay far from two extremes.
Popularity A good company would never leave out marketing efforts so must he higher in SEO and popular in masses.
o Sponsored listing show interest of company to promote themselves but not always an indication of good hosting company.
o Read reviews Though in most cases these are the ones haunting the net with their money and not always quality.
Compare and test their page speed.
Check the whois to know, if they are older company or brand new. New ones can be better than old ones. But the old saying the OLD IS GOLD may be true in most cases.
