As a developer, you’re used to answering questions for your clients, both the easy ones and the tough ones. Some of the answers you give are the same for every client, but some answers are different for everyone.
“Where should I host my website?” is one of those tricky, every-answer-is-different questions. And it should be: every project is different, and no one host fits everyone. So it’s sometimes a challenge to answer that question immediately, or to even come up with a thorough response.
