Any top hosting company will be confident of retaining new clients because of the reliability and performance of their servers, along with their customer & technical support.
Because of this, leading companies often (but not always) offer a limited time money back guarantee to help mitigate any financial risk on the part of their potential customers.
Of course, this encourages clients to at least try out their services in the first place because they know they are entitled to a full refund.
But just because a company offers a money back guarantee doesn't automatically mean that their packages are suitable for the needs of your small business.
So it's important to be able to try out more than one Web host - if you are not happy with your first choice.
This article provides a comprehensive list of all the best services that offer a money back guarantee to help you decide on the perfect package for your business or blog.
Top lightweight hosting packages
Small businesses need to make sure that they are getting good value for money from their service.
With an emphasis on reliability, a business Web host needs to be able to handle a reasonable load of traffic without any degradation in performance.

This list focuses on packages that offer great value for money, as well as great Web resources and support:
- myhosting VPS(30 day money-back guarantee)
- IX VPS(30 day money-back guarantee)
- DreamHost (97 day money-back guarantee)
Top low cost packages
If you know that you are never going to demand much for your website. It's never going to generate much traffic - it's only meant to be a quick online presence for people looking up a bit of information.
I have to add a caveat here in that I don't ever recommend ultra low cost hosting. It will likely do more harm than good in the long run.
If you are really pressed for cash, but want a decent Web platform, consider looking at one the leading website builders (Wix, Webs & Weebly) on the market. These offer great Web design with reliable and fast hosting for only a few bucks a month (or possibly free for their most basic packages).
If your heart is still set on going with a low cost service - at least choose one from a company that is reputable and offers something of value:
- HostGator (45 day money-back guarantee)
- Webhostingpad (30 day money-back guarantee)
- Netfirms (30 day money-back guarantee)/li>

Hopefully you have found the perfect Web host for your blog or business in the lists above. Remember, that you don't have to stick with your first choice if you are unhappy with the quality of the Web servers, technical resources, support, or service.
