Essential Hosting features for hosting your site.

Written by Shivcharan Patil

Here is sum of my experience of Hosting. –

Windows vs Linux
The main difference of the server operating system which is responsible for executing scripts and databases. In other words: Linux and Windows are using different script and database languages. If your choice is Open Source languages and platform then go for Linux because Linux provide native support for PHP, MySQL, Apache HTTP Server etc. My personal recommendation is go for Linux hosting.

Must have features of the server
Unlimited Disk Space and Bandwidth
Unlimited Disk Space and Bandwidth
Latest cPanel Control Panel
Unlimited FTP Accounts, and Email Accounts

Custom Error Pages
Web Based File Manager
IP Deny Manager
Redirect URL

MySQL Databases with phpMyAdmin Access
Programming Language: CGI, Fast CGI, PHP 4/5, Ruby on Rails, Perl, Python, SSL
Programming Modules: Curl, CPAN, GD Library, ImageMagick
System Management: SSH Access and Cron Job Scheduling

Support for custom php.ini file
Most important feature we must have high PHP memory limit setting for the serever at least 512MB but 1GB will be great.
