If you see the image above, you’ll notice the dip in traffic. The server being down was the reason for the dip. If you run a small website, then the dip is insignificant. But just imagine the damage/loss you’ll incur because of the dip. The traffic on my site was down for almost a day. this is the problem if you host with small time web hosting companies.

I’m looking to change my web hosting company. I’m not sure if I should opt for dedicated server. The traffic on this site is not that high that I should opt for one, but I’m sure, with dedication and hard work, it’ll grow up to that level in coming months. Sooner or later I will have to switch on to dedicated server. I was checking out some web sites which review web hosting services, as it is very important for any webmaster to do a complete analysis of which web hosting services before they’dopt for one. I checked out the dedicated server section at WebHostingGeeks and they have a detailed list of the top services in the market.

They also have a section called green hosting, where they review the industries top green hosting services. For those who do not know what green hosting is :

Green web hosting is great for obvious reasons – with the backing of a respectable green web host, you can feel good about your role in saving the earth, since green web hosts use alternative / renewable energy, plant trees, recycling waste and purchase RECs to power their datacenters.
