[closed] What to look for in a host (5 posts)

    Hello,

    What do I need to consider when choosing a host? What is the difference between cPanel and 'the other', which I can't remember the name of.

    On some hosting options I see the mention of a contron panel, other I don't. Why do I need this, or is it alwasy included? At the request of a recent web designer, I engaged with (mt) Medial Templs and got the DV service for $50/month...this seems a bit expensive, but then again I don't know the reason he had me purchase that option. I have since cancelled the service because he took the money and ran.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    Hello Esmi,

    True there are thread RE: hosting, but still needing answers control panel part of the question. Why is this so important...or is it?

    Because these threads attract spam and are usually closed.

  5. And because what I want from a host may be different than you or esmi. It's like asking what flavor of ice cream is best. Too subjective ;)

    Boilerplate:

    Per the Forum welcome, we close topics like this due to the amount of spam that they attract. The WordPress team has provided a list of a few recommended hosting providers.
