What hosting should I choose?

If you want to reduce risk of being on the same IP address as a spammer you could pay for your own seperate dedicated ip address.

I choose to buy my domains and I use different hosting for most of my websites. You can leave them all hosted on godaddy for ease, but if you have a bigger or more complicated website or looking for decent service, I would use Blue Host, they are one of the best hosting companies alongside ipage. Check here for other recommendations.

When you are looking for hosting its important to look for customer reviews, try and look at how easy it is to contact them, i.e bluehost have a chat area on the front of the site, for instant assistance, if you look on godaddy, you have to go through automaticed questions, then you get an automated response 24 hours later. The other problem with godaddy, is if you want an email address with every domain you buy, they make you pay for it per domain per month.

For large websites that need dedicated servers, we often use Geek In Asia Dedicated Servers.

Tip -If you are going to use bluehost, google for "bluehost discount code"  you will find some links to get you a discount.

Country specific

Try and host the website in the country you are targeting, I only do this when I am battling very highly competitive search terms, but you should do it, because every little helps.

Will changing hosts cause any SEO concerns?
