Choosing a web hosting company
You are ready to select a web hosting company to host
your new web site but which one of the numerous webhosts
should you choose? Here are some factors you should consider.
Storage: How much space does your website need,
most packages comes with at least 50Mb. When you need more
space you should be able to upgrade your
Traffic: How much traffic you will need are harder
to calculate as it depends on how "heavy" your web
site pages are. Will you use a lot of images, movies and mp3
on your site or are you creating a simple information site
with mostly text content. Web hosting packages often comes
with 1Gb of transfer per month which are enough for most of
websites. If you are unsecure on how much you will be using,
check the hosting companies prices for extra transfer.
Support: This is an very important factor. When
you experience some problems with your site will you be
able to get fast and good support from the webhost? Are
they offering support 24h a day 7 days a week? How fast
do they answer questions?
Reliability: How fast and secure are their servers
and how much uptime do they provide. If they guarantee a
certian amount of uptime for example 99,5% how do they compensate
if they can't deliver 99,5% uptime.
