    Iíve Got 99 Problems, but a Host Ainít One

    (Page 1 of 4 )

    Check out all the features a web hosters offers to make sure they really work. Tips here from Ian Felton include keeping control of your domain name and verifying their email capabilities. Oh, yeah, and he makes a suggestion related to insanity that you might want to check out too.

    At this point in the web hosting business, itís a buyerís market. With hundreds of people running hosting businesses out of their basements, offering the same services as bigger companies at a fraction of the cost, most businesses can have even a high-trafficked site hosted for under $100 a year.

    To be competitive, a hosting business must offer a large amount of storage space (usually around a gig) and plenty of bandwidth. In addition, Perl, PHP and MySQL are almost the industry standard installations on commercial web farm servers. If a web host doesnít provide the general features: control panel, databases, statistics, SSH at least 100 email addresses and sub-domains, they are below standard.

    The good news is that there are hundreds of companies offering all of the above and more for next to nothing. However, to get into a situation that will actually work out over the period of time in the contract, a savvy web host customer should do several things and ask several questions to the sales rep before handing over the plastic. Even though on the surface these companies appear to be alike, there are vast discrepancies in the philosophies that actually run these companies, and it can be a big surprise to some customers at just how inconvenient some hosts can make it to have your site living on their Internet space.
