Hi all!

I hope i am in the right forum space! If there is anyone out there that could help me and put me in the right direction, that would be great!

I am in the process of finding the 'right' webhost. The website i want to start up is a directory, very similiar to Yellow Pages, etc but after having searched for a particular business they would then be directed to the businesses profile page. Obviously i want as many businesses on my site, so i assume that one day my website will be quite large.
What attributes and services should i be looking out for when picking a webhost for my directory?

Thank you so much in advance for your help!

Sounds like location might be important. Not sure if you are going national or global but try to find a hosting solution near your target audiences. You can do this by searching google like "web hosting in texas" etc.

Also, I dont think speed or space will be an issue for your site so dont get swept away with the largest plans. Look more for a history or reliable uptime and good support.

Good luck with the search!
