A hosting is a must for a website as a main component moreover for a webmaster. If it was wrong decision when choosing hosting server there would be fatal as the consequence.
I have an experience according to this case. To have Indonesian market target I took a national hosting server company that has server located in Indonesia. There was not a big deal when accessing the website, but when build the links in order to raise up the Search Engine Optimization (SEO) the real trouble was happened. I got many complain from many webmaster who having trouble when accessing my website, it was so slow even can not be accessed at all! My pagerank definitely totally decreased.
When there was a review from thetop10bestwebhosting.com, I made my mind to migrate to the top web hosting. It's kind of dream to get a stable and cheap hosting at the same time. It's the reason why I choose JustHost.com who take the first place on thetop10bestwebhosting. Well, I think iPage is also great because this hosting provide unlimited disk space and data transfer as they strong point on the iPage reviews. However, as many other webmaster absolutely I choose JustHost because I know it is very satisfying!
