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:

  • Storage – make sure you check the fine print as often “unlimited storage” means that it’s unlimited until you go over what they consider normal site usage.
  • 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
  • Location
