List of the top Web hosting services with money back guarantees

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.

After all, is it really worth keep notoriously impatient online customers and clients waiting around for a webpage to load, just to save on a few bucks a month?

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>

Top enterprise packages

Serious about driving business, generating traffic or making decent volumes of eCommerce sales?

Then a more robust solution that offers high-end technical support (possibly a managed server), dedicated resources (possibly a cloud server), is what you're after:

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.

It doesn't take too much to move your website to a different Web host if it comes down to it. Read How to move your website to a better service for a step-by-step guide on how to change Web hosts.

Starting a business can be a daunting task - often made all the more difficult by a small advertising/marketing budget and an insufficient network of contacts to help get things off the ground.

It's a good thing then that there is always one fantastic, free strategy to generate some high-quality buzz and exposure for your startup that will not only put your idea in front of plenty of the "right" people, but also, potentially, lead to some much-needed funds, influential connections, and media coverage.

I'm talking about university business competitions.

home business ideas to make money fast

Finding a way to make money quickly is really not as good as finding a way to earn a stable income in the long term - get rich quick schemes tend to be a waste of time and effort (except for the people selling the scheme).

At least that was the point of my argument with a friend the other day. They ended up betting that I couldn't come up with at least one idea that would start generating cash within 24 hours.

In the words of Barney, "Challenge accepted!"

Top ideas from university entrepreneurs

Encouraging younger people to become involved in entrepreneurship by holding business idea competitions is, in my opinion, one of the best ways to innovate our way out of the current financial doldrums the world finds itself in.

The creativity and energy exhibited by the students who enter the top business idea competitions from around the U.S. have shown the rest of us just how easy they can make it look when it comes to generating a new idea, putting together a plan, and pitching it to the world like pros.
