I found a really interesting article which outlines important features to look for in a finding a suitable web host. The page rounds up the following features to be leading factors in choosing the right host for you:

- Bandwidth – understanding your site’s traffic to get an indication of the amount of data needed each month.
- Number of Domains & Sub-domains
- Database support (SQL)
- Framework Support
- Shell Access (SSH) – allows data to be exchanged using a secure channel between two networked devices.
- Language Support
