In more ways than one, writing about my web hosting experiences and other service providers have already been a part of my blogging gig. There are ups and downs along the way but making it this far for almost 6 months on my current host without downtime is pretty satisfying however despite of that, getting a good web hosting service requires money and time for research.

At some point, I do agree with some fellow webmasters I know that “you get what you’ve paid for” however, I still think that if that’s the case in all industries, then there should be no existing competition in the marketplace. Therefore, the end doesn’t always justify the means.

Alternative options are available so we should know that one service after another has its counterpart. It could cheaper in terms of price but could be superior when it comes to service and performance. We’ll never know until we try. That’s what normally happens to everyone else be it a service or a good offline.

For starters, it wasn’t that bad to try cheaper services. This blog even started on a free host but when it gradually grew overtime, I had it moved to a more reliable and paid hosting since it can already pay the bills. There’s nothing wrong with trying out cheaper services, I’m sure there are actually ones that can stand the test of time and can go beyond your expectations.

Consider PacificHost, a shared web hosting service provider with datacenters located in Chicago, IL. With its unlimited hosting for 2.95/month offer, I’m certain that you wouldn’t have second thoughts signing-up with them but again, as I always say, you can only criticize a service when you have tried them.

Uptime and Service quality always comes first on basically all web hosting businesses. Don’t be afraid of failure. It is where we fail the hard way that we learn the most. Your thoughts are welcome at the comments section.

    In my opinion, it is okay to use cheap web hosting while we just start our blog. However, after our blog is a bit success, we should hire more reliable web hosting service which is usually more expensive.

    Dana,
    That’s exactly what I did but for me, I did more than just that. I’ve been with 4 web hosting providers within a year.
