I've been mulling over the idea of switching hosting providers for a few months and finally decided it was time to make a move. I started my journey to find the perfect hosting company. Turns out, finding a good host is a lot more difficult than it looks. There are tons of hosting review sites, but frankly, I don't trust many of them. What I saw in their rankings and recommendations didn't align very well with my personal experience. I started to evaluate what I wanted in a host and started to build my requirements. Below are some of the things I've learned along the way.
