Information About Linux and Windows Web Hosting Print
Once you decide to start a business using the internet it will probably begin with creating a website. It actually should be. Having a site up and running is no different than having a place of business in the off line world. For a new or small business choosing a cheap web hosting service is important to the future success of their website.

A company with the capital to have an infrastructure large enough to employ a managed hosting platform knows how critical it is to have all the features necessary to run their website. A smaller business or a new person should take their approach just as seriously, although the investment will be pennies in comparison.

Shared web hosting providers make it possible for the average Jane or Joe to have an online presence at a fraction of the price. It provides options to install blogs, create websites, set up message boards, create email addresses, and many other features that many quality hosting providers offer.

You can get an inexpensive and quality web hosting package from a handful of providers and it would be very easy to research a list of these by doing a Google Search.  Off the top of my head I can think of 4 or 5 that offer excellent hosting for under ten bucks.

If you are just starting out and need some guidance on the type of features that would benefit your business, here is a partial list of a well known hosting provider and what they offer:

  • 600 Gigs of Web Hosting Space
  • 6,000 Gigabytes of Bandwidth
  • Host Unlimited Websites
  • Free Instant Setup
  • 99.9% Uptime Guarantee
  • 45 Day Money Back Guarantee
  • CGI, PHP 4 & 5, RoR, Perl
  • MySQL, SSH, SSL, IMAP, POP
  • Free Site Builder
  • cPanel Hosting
  • 24/7/365 Upgraded Support
  • No Contracts or Hidden Fees

There are a lot of people out there that are mislead by information on the cheapest website hosting. There are a few things that a lot of cheap hosting companies do not offer and it is my job to clear all of those things up for you. If your like me and you just made your first websites, than you really must be cautious as to where you decide to host them.

The first major thing that you want to look for when searching for cheap website hosting is the amount of domains that you are allowed to host there. If they limit you on the number of domains than it is a rip off and you do not want to use their services. No matter what hosting services you use, they should always offer unlimited domains.

Another major thing you want to look at is what they offer you for bandwidth. Is it unlimited bandwidth? Because it should be! Again, no matter where you host your websites, you should be offered unlimited bandwidth. If they do not offer this than get out, eventually when your bandwidth is reached you will be forced to pay for more space. This is a rip off and there are too many cheap hosting companies out there that offer unlimited bandwidth for you to fall into this trap.

I have heard some concerns that unlimited bandwidth never really means unlimited bandwidth. Technically this is partially true. Basically you are only allowed a certain amount of bandwidth in a period time. Luckily, unless you plan on creating 100 websites in a month you should not have to worry about this ever becoming an issue.

What would I consider cheap website hosting?

My ruled of thumb is under $10 a month would be considered inexpensive. If you can not afford this you should probably spend your time finding a new job before you begin hosting and building websites. For more advanced business plans anything under $20 a month is a pretty good deal.

IF you purchase a business plan hosting package you should also be given a 1-800 number for your business. This is not necessary for you to have but online it makes you look more reputable and having it on your websites to get in contact with your audience is definitely a bonus.

Choosing website hosting really boils down to choosing the business that you can trust with all of your websites. An analogy of who you let take care of your kids can be compared to web hosting and who you let watch your site.
