As I mentioned in my last blog post ‘How do I pick a great host for my website?’ I have finally decided to take the pain of remaining with HostGator and moving to a better host.

So after my ‘rant’ about HostGator and the trials and tribulations I have experienced with them, it begs the question “What should I consider when selecting a hosting company?” Well I’m glad you asked!
