    As the title says, when you're looking for a web hosting company what matters the most to you? Uptime, CloudFlare, 24/7 support, server location, Freebies?

    Price, host's customer reviews + uptime and location. Money sites go on more reliable providers, less important ones can stay on cheaper hosts with backups.

    Average support response times + activity/resolution times.

    Most support queries are mission critical (Can we enable this etc.?) or are about downtimes (My site is not accessible) and at such times, if your average response time is in hours - I am out.
