I have developed an asp.net website using visual web developer 2010 and sql server 2008 express editions and now need to host it. I have not done hosting before. Could any expert tell me what kind of web server I shall be looking for and any good hosting sites. My database won't be more than 1GB in size and site has roughly 15 pages. My site might have 30 concurrent users and looking a better bandwidth.

Hi,

You have to look for hosting that offered Windows hosting with IIS and MS SQL server. Most of the hosting site offers Linux based with My SQL, some do have Windows based but with higher price tag.

I have using WebHostingWorld, http://www.webhostingworld.net/ 

Famous Godaddy also provide Windows based hosting, http://www.godaddy.com/Hosting/

It is hard to know which good hosting is, even there is ranking for the hoster like this, http://www.top10bestwebsitehosting.com/?kw=best%2520webhosting&c=14385057228&t=search&p=&m=b&adpos=1t1&a=28&gclid=COjsnKGIpKsCFUp76woddl5x3Q 

But do not take it for granted. You have to do R&D on this. Be aware of hidden or fine print when they offer you unlimited of something, it will always be limit or you might stumble with your account suspended or your traffic shaped.
