Tips On Hosting

Once you’ve chosen your website name and domain, start looking for a web host. Firstly, decide whether you desire a free or commercial web host. It’s not extremely hard to choose.

With a few tips you’ll be able to pick the road that’s perfect for you.

Space: Whether commercial or free, the amount of web space you’ll need to create the amount of pages you want is rather low. You’ll probably need less than 10 MB of web space, so be wary of those hosts trying to entice you with “unlimited space”; it’s just not necessary.

Access Speed: When dealing with free hosts, keep in mind that there are times when the site will be down for repairs. Of course, if this occurs too often you’re looking at a great deal of lost traffic. Commercial hosts have considerably lower downtime. If the host has an uptime that’s lower than 99%, you should demand a refund.

Bandwidth: Free hosts may impose a visitation and upload limit to your site per month. In terms of commercial hosts, again you’ll want to steer clear of the U-word…”unlimited”. The host has to incur the cost of traffic, so you’ll have to foot a lofty bill if you exceed their limit.

Price: This is specific to quality commercial hosting.

You’ll have to pay – get over it quickly.

It’s worth it for web security, miniscule downtime, and no adverts.

It’s best to pay on a yearly basis, as opposed to monthly payments to ensure you pay a bit less overall.

There are quite a few things to consider when thinking of a host. One of the most important considerations is what you’re willing to pay.

As with most things in life, you generally get what you pay for, however more expensive doesn’t mean the best.

If you don’t have the budget, choose a free web host to get your site up and running and then pay for a quality hosting package when you can afford it.
