It is fun that there are many businesses who declare they are dedicated to the web hosting for Drupal, and location “drupal” into their companies’ name, such as drupalhosting, drupalvaluehosting, etc. This kind of company is generally very small, they really can’t provide with you dependable support.

And of course you want your website to be up so that your visitors can see your site. Most web hosting companies offer a 99.9% uptime guarantee. Just the guarantee is not enough, you want some kind of a consequence to something going wrong. A free month of service would be a reasonable offer that shows they value you as a client. Considering you’re usually paying less than a month, if service goes down a day and they just reimburse you for that day, it would only cost them 33cents and not much motivation to keep things up and running right for you.
