    I have tried to cover many aspects of hosting in my recent article at
    http://www.binarytrends.com/article_details/11/Choose-a-hosting-package.-How-confusing-!!
    I hope it will help. I also need someone to give me feed back on it. So if you fancy doing so please do.

    Good article. Only comments are that there really isn't any such thing as an uptime guarentee. It's almost impossible to disprove any figure they decide to put on their site. There are so many factors that could cause a site to go down including the visitors ISP being at fault.

    What is important is a good means of contacting the host. Do they have telephone support, email support, how long do they take to respond to requests etc.

    I'd also stay away from any host promissing unlimited disk space. Unless someones invented the unlimited disk drive that costs nothing to buy that is :-)

    Good article

    Daily backups. Most good hosts do this for their own uses. eg. If they server goes belly up, they can restore it. Not many will restore something that the user accidently lost themselves. Those that do, will charge you for the privilege of restoring the data that you lost yourself. Far better to make backups of your own data, not rely on the host.
