    Basic need you require while web hosting is disk space and bandwidth. Try estimating number of monthly visitors to your website & number of pages they can view during a visit. More are the visitors, more bandwidth you need to acquire

    Web hosting needs are based on what your website design needs to do although they are all pretty much the same. Amount of allocated bandwidth, disk space. Good hosts now offer free https with lets encrypt certificates. You would also want to make sure your host has a good time to first byte for your website speed. If you are runing a eCommerce site you would want to make sure your host offers good security. Hotlink protection and so forth. Lastly look at the downtime that websites experience with this host.

    I would normally look for in below order:
    1) Support
    2) Value for Price
    3) Uptime. Reliability
    + Technical support is very important.

    On the account of the fact, I consider Wpwebhost.com to be the best place for hosting wordpress blogs.
    They offer 99.99% uptime guarantee, zero packet loss and 100% content delivery to your visitors.

    Use coupon code WP15OFF which will give you the 15% off
    + yearly as that gives a 40% OFF + Free .blog domain name.

    To have a website on the Internet, the most basic needs you require are disk space and bandwidth.

    Disk space is the amount of data you can store on the web server. Obviously, the amount of space needed depends on the size of your website. Most websites are composed of HTML (text), images, Flash, or a combination of all.

    Text is very economical, it occupies very little space. Images and flash are more expensive, as they require more disk space.

    Ideally, your web page should stay under 50-60KB, including images and flash. This is because there are some people using slow dial-up connections of under 56Kbps. For these people, a 60KB page will take more than 8 seconds to load. 8 seconds seems like a small number, but imagine you have to sit there and stare at a blank white page for 8 seconds. That's a lot of time. Use the slow dial-up connection as your reference. If your website loads fast using slow dial-up, it will be even faster for broadband, high-speed connection.

    If your average page size is 50KB, you can put approximately 20 pages on 1Mb of space. If you have 100MB of disk space, you can host 200 pages.

    Bandwidth is the amount of data you are allowed to transfer to and from your web server per month. This includes all uploads and downloads, both HTTP and FTP. Bandwidth depends on your web page size, as well as the number of visitors to your website and the number of pages they visit.

    For an average page size of 50KB, 20,000 visitors per month, and 5 pages per visitor your website will need about 5000MB, or 5GB, of bandwidth per month. Note that 20,000 visitors per month equates to approximately 667 visitors per day. This is a number even most large websites cannot achieve.

    If you are just launching your website, chances are you will not need a huge amount of space, nor a huge amount of bandwidth. Unless you have reasons to believe, and evidentiary numbers to support, that your website will have lots of visitors and/or you are offering movie and music downloads, there is little reason for many of us to worry about space and bandwidth. However, in choosing a web host, choose one that allows you to upgrade your disk space and bandwidth if you should need it later on.

    If you're just starting out your website, you can look for bare basic. Then, as your site starts to grow and use more resources, you can always scale up.
