This is my first time choosing a hosting company. It is for a web site made in asp.net mvc3.
So I was thinking choosing a provider would be easy since I found this page http://www.microsoft.com/web/Hosting/Home which contains hosting offers.
Now hours later, I am still searching.
The reason is that as soon as I start investigating about particular company, something stands out that I do not like.
Here are some examples what I noticed when checking various companies in more detail:
Company "about us" page is lacking in information about their company.
Few of them had just general description what they do and nothing else, while some others had information like company name but had no address.
Checking company name in Business Registry Searches gave no results.
Two of the companies I checked had both company name and address but I was unable to find them in the registry.
Putting company domain into Google gave mostly results from that domain or web hosting review sites but not much else.
I am assuming that good companies should have search results from other sites too.
Low Alexa Traffic Rank.
There was one company which had a site that looked very professional but their alexa traffic ranking was like 2 million.
Are there any other factors I should pay attention to when choosing a hosting company?
Do I have legitimate concerns or am I just too paranoid?
