If you want to start blogging then make sure your hosting response rate is minimum. If your hosting takes too much time to respond then you can lose your position on search results page. So must sure when you are purchasing hosting plane you have to know that response time first. A second thing is that when you purchasing your hosting plan check his bandwidth if it gives you unlimited bandwidth then that is excellent for you. if limited then it makes a problem for you when suddenly too much visitors come to your website. Many possible chances your site get down. In the limited bandwidth plane your hosting can’t handle too much visitors at one time it’s down your website for some time.
