How can I know if the web designer I hire will do a good job?

How can I know if the web designer I hire will do a good job?

I found a web designer that can offer a good price for web design and where I get two languages included in the base price, with possibility to add more languages and CMS integration at low price.

But how can I know that in the end, the web site will be like I had intended from the outset? Or that I will feel satisfied with the result?

A web designer well have been successful with developing web sites within a specific type of business activity, but I can't be certain he will succeed for my particular business activity. So how should I interact with the web designer, really get good communication from the start so he understands my needs? I know the business in detail so I need to get the essential across to this web designer, what is necessary that he knows about my business. But what will he need to know, in detail?

What I had in mind was something like this which I just found:

Hi ,
i agree with @DaveBaldwin. A designer can tend to ful fill ur need according to ur needs and data provided to him.
What about choosing the hosting provider? Is that something the web designer does for me, based on the final analysis of my web site and business? Or can I begin now using any hosting provider and first design myself a simple web site, which I later change to the web site that is designed by the web designer?
I suggest that you get your domain name at a different place than your web hosting.  If you design a simple site and then hire a designer, that will make it easier to change hosting if that becomes necessary.
