    How to Choose a Budget Web Host

    (Page 1 of 4 )

    Looking for a web host, but can't afford to spend a lot of money? You're not doomed to simply making do; there are many budget web hosts that offer affordable options. But which one is right for you? We're not going to make specific recommendations; we're going to do something better than that. In this article, we'll walk you through a five-step process that will show you how to choose the budget web host that is right for you.

    The host that you choose for your website can be a big decision for those of us without a fat corporate budget to back up our choices. Just because you are setting up your site with a shoestring doesn't mean that you should get a less-than-quality host.

    In order to help you get the best host for your money, we are going to look at the ways to evaluate a budget host and choose the plan for you. That way you can get the best plan not only for your short term needs of site set up, but for your long term needs and your long term budget plans.

    Step One: Establish your needs

    Before you even do any research on your hosting options and what you can get from a web host, you need to figure out what you need. This will come down to two basic factors: how much space you need and the capabilities that you require for your site.

    These are mostly relative, since a small static site will take up a lot less bandwidth than a video hosting site or a site that plans to  have a wide range of active users. What features you need from a web host are also very dependent on what you plan to do with the site.

    It would be best to make a list of what you need in a site. Separate the list into "must have" and "would be nice to have" if you can. Once you have this information, you can move onto the next step in finding the right budget web host.
