Before you choose a Joomla host
Take these 2 steps before choosing a host
1 Contact the hosting customer support. Ask them specifically about Joomla. If they can't answer your questions, then you're talking to the wrong company.
2 Search for problems. Try searching Google for problems and errors involving the hosting company.
Take time and choose carefully
Remember that no company is 100% perfect. Even the companies that we're going to list have caused problems for a few people we've spoken to. However, these are companies who know Joomla and have the best overall feedback from our members.
