Price is another thing to consider, based on the fact that you may have budget, you need to compare prices before you make a choice, here my was hosted by whogohost there prices are relatively ok all depends on your budget, you can check out whogohost to see there offers. But first put all the above discussed factors into consideration before looking at price, because you can’t afford to get a cheap package without customer care services to attend to you when time prompt or your site keep disappearing in the web when your visitors need it and all other related issues. So while you consider the price also consider other factors too.
