    Well when I used to buy shared hosting plans, I search for companies that suits the following needs, in order:

    1. Storage
    2. Bandwidth
    3. Payment Method
    4. Location
    5. Price


    Other factors depends on the companies that I'm searching.

    The question is too broad. It is very different when a consumer needs to find a decent Shared Hosting service rom a business owner who needs a few virtual machines or dedicated servers.

    2.Storage
    3.Polices
    4.Location
    5.Hardware

    It really depends on what site are you using and for what
    generally I would consider this:

    years in business
    up-time
    price
    support
    ScarabWeb | Quality Hosting Solutions
    High Quality Hosting to fit everyone's need!
    Shared | Reseller | VPS | Dedicated Servers
    cPanel | WHM | Fantastico | RVSkin | Site Builder

    Look at your current usage and double it at least, triple is even better because coming half way through the month and running out of bandwidth is probable the worst thing you can do for your website, your users will probable desert you, if they see it isn’t online for a day or two.
