Rule of thumb: Choose a hosting service that best match your needs.

Now that you have a domain name, you need to find a place to host your web pages on the internet, for example, your homepage, your products & services description page and your contact info page. Website hosting companies assigns an IP address to your website and allow you to “physically” put your web pages online.

 

When you are just starting a website, a shared host is a very economical solution. However if your website expects to have large volume of traffic, Virtual Private Server (VPS) hosting might be a better option. Most website hosting companies offer multiple packages that you can choose from. If you are not sure, it’s always not a bad idea to start with cheap packages and upgrade as your needs grow. Expect to pay a monthly or yearly fee for your hosting service.

 

Key features for vendor comparison include: traffic bandwidth, number of sites allowed, number of domain and subdomain allowed, disk space and how easy it is to use their services. “You get what you pay for” is the golden truth in choosing a website hosting service.
