Big means spammer

How can you choose hosting? To avoid any potential problem, don't buy from a hosting company that is big. Why? Because big is bad. And because the bigger the hosting company, for example GoDaddy, the more likely it's used by spammers. Why? Because some of their customers are spammers. Therefore pretty much everyone will assume that you're a spammer, too.

Bulgarians

How can you choose hosting? To avoid potential problems, don't buy from companies located in Bulgaria. Why? Because what counts aren't the advertisements, affiliates, links and the companies that promote them, but the actual Bulgarians who provide the hosting service.

So, don't be taken by appearances! There are many foreign hosting companies that pretend to be American. There is a bunch of hosting companies, for example HostColor and ICDSoft, whose addresses are only U.S. mail drops. They've got private mail box (PMB) or P.O. Box addresses.

ICDSoft, for example, is a Bulgarian company with an unknown address and unknown phone number somewhere in Bulgaria. In my experience they're not too bad. However, they don't measure up in their attitudes and technical skills.

Cheap means lousy

How can you choose hosting?

Issue: Many of us, customers, are attracted to low prices. However, to avoid potential problems, you shouldn't buy from hosting companies with cheap prices. Why? A) because cheap means lousy. And B) because saving up to ten bucks per year isn't worth the aggravation, the frustration, the inconvenience, the loss of your digital files, the loss of your domain names, the loss of your email messages, the nuisance and the stress you will encounter.

Never allow the low price to influence your hiring decision. Beware of hosting companies, for example GoDaddy, that have bargain-basement prices. Especially beware of them, if they say their low-low price should be the main reason for using them.
