What do I have to consider when hosting a landing page, and which hosting service is the best choice?
I need to host a landing page. I need the hosting space, but it is more important that I am able to easily transfer users to Google cloud or Amazon web services.
I'm afraid you are mixing up a few things here, let me try to clarify this a bit.
"Landing Page": A landing page is the page that first opens when you visit a website. For example, when you go to www.mosaichub.com, you see a page on your screen, this page is called the landing page. It can always be the same (then it's called a "static page"), or it can change. For example, a blogger writes an article every day, and he always want the latest article to appear as the "landing page", this means every day visitors see different content, this is called "dynamic".
"Hosting": You do not host individual pages, but you host a "website". A website consists of one or more pages, e. g. "Home", "About us", "Contact us" etc. A website always has a domain name, e. g. "mosaichub.com"
"Google Cloud" and "Amazon Web Services": These are very generic terms for a myriad of different services (hosting, streaming, newsletters, just to mention a few). Could you explain a bit more detailed what you try to achieve, or what your users should be able to do?
Hi - We like to use our preferred WordPress host at WPsiteHosting.com -- we have a marketing agreement with them and about 35 clients on their system... they are international with 4 different operation centers.
For landing pages we use a tool called Instapage which offers 3 options for hosting... host on their system, host on a subdomain of your domain, or push through to a WordPress page via a plugin. They are great for A/B testing, and you should test every one of your landing pages because well done tests will almost always improve your lead gathering results.
90% of all hosting firms are pretty much the same, as far as services and costs.
When using Landing Pages I prefer a Host that will give you multiple subdomains.
In this way you will have as many Landing Pages as allowed and all hosted all in one package. The more Pages, the more traffic. Personally I use both Aweber and Get Response, because of the ease to set up campaigns. Hostgator is another I have used in the past as well as Hostzilla. All are very good so it depends on what you need, as other services and the package they are promoting. Domain registrations are now being covered by just about any Hosting firm as well.
I prefer using a local host that I have a personal relationship with. I can contact him anytime for support, it is affordable, and there are not any "system glitches" with my sites grouped in with millions of others. A lot of local free-lance developers have a hosting service.

Being expert in web development & hosting management I can guide & help you. kindly add me in skype: bdecom-mehede, so that I can discuss further. I can send you a complete landing page very short time. Thanks
I actually use LeadPages for this. You can create amazing landing pages with LeadPages and you could publish them to your WordPress website. But if you ultimately want to send the to Google cloud or Amazon Web Services, for example to download something, you could too. Even better, you can actually add a downloadable report or document directly into LeadPages and it is sent to your subscribing customer. LeadPages does a lot of testing so they have great insights what works and what does not. If you're interested, check them out here: http://link.leadpages.net/aff_c?offer_id=6&aff_id=4078
I'm with Gert. You question is not clear because we're not sure how you're using the terminology.
If the hosting is just for one landing page, really any hosting is fine - and the issues of shared hosting mentioned, having enough space or bandwidth, etc. really won't affect you much (unless your one page streams self-hosted video to thousands of users at once from huge amount of traffic).
But if you need a whole dynamic website hosted, that needs better hosting. That's why clarity of terms and of your question is important to get a right answer.
Also, the answer depends on other things.
* Is your site a LOCAL site or for an international audience? If local, I prefer to use hosting on a server that's in or near that city - may be faster (and maybe a slight edge for local ranking). If international, any US city is fine. To choose a city where your server is located, the best is Site5 hosting.
* Is it just "a page" or a whole site? Is it expected to get tons of traffic realistically? Will it use lots of bandwidth (like your own self-hosted video watched many times in a short time - not Youtube, but uploaded to your own server).
If you want it easy to transfer to other hosting. Most hosting companies will help you transfer everything exactly as is from another to THEIR hosting. So, just find live chat on the new hosting you are considering, and ask them what's involved in transferring. (the top hosting co's. will have live 24/7 chat). Most will transfer your stuff for free - because they're happy to be your new host - you just have to give them your former hosting access & they take care of it.
Landing Page First impression lasts a life time Make sure it is good, relevant, and eye catching. If using Joomla there is a lot of very well made landing page extensions.
Hosting I have had Go Daddy and I have heard this is not our problem that we deleted your files to many times. I looked at others Host Gator and One on One, but Blue Host caught my eye about 2 years ago I became a reseller for their Host space mostly for my customers and I am able to provide great service to them at a low price.
But mostly I can only say the service is stellar even when someone has a domain at Godaddy and a site at Blue Host they have helped me solve issues.
I am not much for "bravo-ing" companies but this company deserves it.
Not tons of advertising glitter and glamor but awesome host company with awesome service.
Generally speaking, you want hosting provider that has adequate up-time and good support, if you have technical problems. Space is very cheep and most hosting providers will give you more space if you ask. You should not have any problems transferring any users to your new provider.
