HERE ARE THE MAJOR FEATURES THAT YOU WILL GET
WITH SOME OF THE Low Cost WEB HOSTING PLANS.
Searching around for a web hosting company? Here's what to
keep in mind.
• Response Time of Server
• Provided Bandwidth.
• Provided disk space.
• Used Hardware and Server Technology.
• Custom pop e-mail accounts.
• Hosting company's support services.
Response Time of the server refers to the number of sites
you can access from server at a time; if access numbers of
sites on server are limited then response time of server will
be slow. Second thing should be keep in mind is the hardware
used and the availability of possible bandwidth. In the midst
of your search, you'll probably run across hosting services
that offer 'unlimited bandwidth'. This is simply not true,
the term 'bandwidth' refers to the amount of information that
is past between the hosting servers and the end user. Most
hosting companies are connected to high-speed Internet backbones
(UUNET, Sprint, AT&T, etc) which charge the hosting company
based on their monthly bandwidth from customers. Be sure to
read the terms of service very carefully with each hosting
company that you are considering, especially if they advertise
'free' or 'unlimited' site features.
If you have purchased your own domain name, be sure the hosting
company supports them (mostly do), and be sure they give you
at least 1 e-mail address ([email protected]). A lot of companies
offer 10 or more custom pop e-mail accounts with unlimited
forwarding address at little or no additional cost, which
is a nice feature.
In general, if you run a business on the web, you may not
want to take that kind of risk. Bad response time, low bandwidth
and limited support services etc, Very often, when people
ask me about web hosting, they want to ask if I know any cheap
but good web host. I only can recommend you should pay very
careful attention to hosting company because cheap web hosting
industry is very competitive, go to the forums and chats,
ask people and then I'm sure you'll be able to choose the
right cheap web hosting company.
