Based on your individual or company needsas well as your budgetyou will not only have to account for the present, but also your future growth as well (at least in the short term as you can always switch plans if your web hosting company has scalability options).

I love them, they have a great customer support! But since the beginning of last month I have been unhappy with the amount of down times I have been seeing. So I would Like to transfer one of my blogs to one of The SA hosting companies. I just want to compare the services and decide after what I will do. Will someone please (preferably someone with a website/blog hosted on a certain company) advise witch company I should go for? I was thinking Afrihost, because I think they have good support, but I need more online time for my sites than support! Remember, I am currently looking for shared hosting. Any suggestions peeps?
