    How to Set up a Simple Website - Find a Web Host

    (Page 3 of 4 )

    Once your website is completely designed, you can then search for a web host to actually host your website on the web. There are a variety of options when choosing a web host. The first thing you need to do is determine what kind of host is best for your website. There are different hosts for e-commerce websites, personal pages, or large websites with databases. It is important to choose the right host for your website. You can read my articles about how to choose the right host for your website, for a detailed look at web hosting.

    Because my website was going to be a small website with very little traffic, I chose to use free web hosting from GoDaddy.com. This hosting works perfectly for what I needed from my hosting company, because I don't have a lot of traffic to my site, and I don't have a large website with a ton of graphics or videos. GoDaddy uploaded the site to the Internet with just a click of the "publish" button. The disadvantage of having free web hosting is the fact that the web hosting company will place ads on your site, as you can see from my website. Make sure you do a lot of research on web hosting before you choose a hosting company, because it is a very important step in the success of a website.

    If you do choose to purchase web hosting, research the hosting company to make sure they are reliable. You can check user reviews and comments from any independent web host review site to check out the reliability of a host. Make sure they offer enough bandwidth, disk space, acceptable uptime (99.9% is now standard), and customer support. Also make sure to ask them about their backup policies, so that you know that your website will be safe even if their servers crash. If the host doesn't have an acceptable backup policy, you should consider another hosting company.
