So before choosing a hosting company, always research about the company. Never fall on heavy discounts or cheap rates. Check user reviews, their uptime, their speed and how much space they are giving you. One most important point, check out what they are using, SSD or HDD. I will recommend you to go with only the hosting provider which are using SSD for the storage. Because it is the latest technology and websites are stored in SSD loads fast.
