Very often technical experts recommend small/medium companies for web hosting than the big players. This is because there are several advantages with smaller companies. A very small list of the advantages are discussed below:
Amount of web space
Big players usually advertise UNLIMITED web space. However, just like there is no free-lunch, there is really no unlimited web space without the tiny terms & conditions you might miss while signing up. These companies impose restrictions on various aspects such as the file sizes, number of files, etc.
Perl and PHP
Perl and PHP are great programming languages for web applications. However, there are several dangerous functions that could be used to exploit servers on a shared hosting environment. Big companies with a huge client list, surely doesn't have the time to investigate/monitor any unusual activities on the server of each individual clients. The best way for them to secure the server is to disable these functions. Alas, if you were developing a custom application which required some of these functions, you will have a bad luck with them.
Again, the unlimited bandwidth is the term that is used most often on the advertisements. Bandwidth is not free. Period. If you are offered unlimited bandwidth, i.e data transfer, there are chances your bandwidth, the actual bandwidth of the connection to your server is lesser. For eg, here is an example: You are offered 50 GB download limit on your ISP at the speed of 2 MBPS. When you have crossed this limit, your bandwidth is reduced to 256 KBPS, but you still have unlimited downloads. This trick is currently being followed by most of the internet service providers, so you might very well understand the concept behind this. BTW – ask yourself, why do you need unlimited bandwidth?
The above are only a few disadvantages of choosing a big player, which is obviously an advantage when you choose a smaller service provider.
Now we look at the major deciding factor: The Price and customization! Smaller players understand you so well that they are always willing to customized the hosting package for your needs. The price is thus flexible and you are only paying for what you get.
