How do you consider a product is cheap in its price? It all depends on the requirements, specifications and your expectations of such products for you to accomplish your needs and tasks. All of these will be the factors for you to compare a certain type of products offered by many different companies.
The same goes to when choosing a web hosting service provider to host your website or blog. The first step in choosing a web hosting company is to know what you really need. Below are the most basic things or specifications of a website you have to determine:
- Storage size
- Email accounts
- Control Panel
From my personal experience, by deciding those 5 criteria, I am able to select the cheapest web hosting company to host my website. However, to research many companies one by one is quite frustrating and also a time wasting activity.
Worry not, I have spend a time to do a comparison table for the top six cheap Malaysia web hosting companies so that you do not have to switching web browser tabs over and over again. Just to let you know that I do this comparison based on:
- The most basic package that the companies offered
- Malaysian, or at least collaborated with Malaysia
- The price per year is below RM150
