The major reason that arises is how will you select a hosting plan amongst thousands of companies?  The question can be answered very simple in so many ways.

In order for you to select the best hosting plan you should consider on selecting a site which is amongst the top 5 in any of the popular search engines that is Google, Yahoo, and MSN.  Now all you have to do is make a comparison between the top 5 sites. 

You should not only select the site which has got cheap hosting plans because you may never know whether the plan will suit your website requirements.

So when making a comparison you should consider the following:

-    How much space is allocated to you
-    Does the hosting plan allow you to make use of databases
-    How many databases are you able to get with this hosting plan
-    Does the hosting plan allow you to install CGI-Bin scripts and if it has installed scripts you should be able to see which one will be of use to your site
-    How much data transfer do they offer
-    How many email account does the hosting plan allow you to have
-    Does it have mailing lists
-    Does the hosting plans servers go down
-    Do they offer 24/7 support

These are some of the basics that will guide you on selecting the best web host. So if you find a hosting plan cheaper than the other and it includes all these basics then you should go for it. Selecting the best web host is very simple but you also have to be tactile. Do not just select a hosting company just because it is popular. You should only select a web host which will offer everything that your site requires.

So generally selecting a web host for your site may be easy but you should not always take it for granted.
