    Choosing a Website Host

    (Page 1 of 4 )

    For any business operating online, one of the first steps is finding a company to host the business’s website. Most companies rely on existing services called “website hosts” to provide server space and features to host a website. In general, this is not a big concern. However, if chosen improperly, a web host can cause nightmares for any business.

    The primary job of a website host is to make sure that all of the hosting needs are taken care of for their clients. They provide space and bandwidth so that their clients can host their files to be viewed by others.

    They also provide a set of standard features that determine what the clients will be able to have on their website. Different hosts have different feature sets. Many also provide an extra set of features that can make a client’s website easier to set up or have more functionality.

    When choosing a website host, it is important to look at several different factors. These factors are determined largely by the individual needs of the websites that will be going on the server.

    For instance, a company wanting to set up a file download website needs a lot of space and bandwidth to host all of their files. That would be much more important to them than it would be to someone who is just trying to set up basic pages for their business.

    Some of the features are only useful for certain people. Developers may have use for specific programming languages or feature packs that are completely worthless and mean nothing to more standard business owners. At the same time, some people may want access to free scripts and programs that other people would either just buy or develop themselves.

    To determine what is important in a web host for you, you first have to figure out what you find important. You must analyze the needs of your business and/or websites to determine what your needs are for a website server.
