  • 1. Web site Hosting Advice That Can Get You Began Every website needs a good web page hosting service to support it. A website without a web host is like a movie without a producer. The two have to work in unison to ensure that a site last for years. For some, choosing a web host can be a hassle, but it doesn't have to be, especially if you are armed with the following tips. You can almost always save money on your hosting by paying in advance. Discounts for multi-month and yearly packages are common. However, you don't want to lock in with an unreliable host. Try out a new host for a month or two before you lock in a website design mind map long-term commitment, and check out the cancellation and refund policy beforehand. Website hosting facilities can be anywhere, but you should choose one that is located in the same country as your site's audience. If your target audience is Americans, stick with a hosting provider that's located in America. Switch web hosts if an outage lasts for more than a day. Even if the host explains why the server is down, the most likely reason is that the host did not invest enough into back up plans as far as outages are concerned. Any truly professional web hosts will have ensured that outages will be short and infrequent. Want a website that's safe? It may be worth getting a certificate for a server that's secure. You can add this button to your website so customers feel it is a more trustworthy website to visit. Before choosing a web host provider, check to see how fast files can be uploaded or downloaded from their server. If this information is not readily available from them directly, use a "website speed test" service who can run a test for you. Realize, however, that accuracy varies and can be different depending on the time of day. Establish how much you can afford to spend on website hosting. You can get discounts if you subscribe to web page hosting for a while year instead of paying a monthly fee. Perhaps you should start with a monthly subscription to see if the host you have chosen is reliable and switch to a yearly plan later. Ensure that the web host you sign up with has a strong anti-spam policy. If any of the web host's customers are involved in spam activities, it could result in the web host becoming blocked which will affect your website as well. Make certain that the web host you are considering is not already blocked, and has stringent policies in place that will help it avoid getting blocked in the future. Always get a pricing breakdown for you hosting package. You will need to include hosting fees as part of your website's budget. By knowing exactly what your monthly fees are covering, it will allow you to budget any factors that may be relevant, such as time, bandwidth and data. Inspect the terms closely for any fees that may be incurred and should be budgeted as a precaution. If you wish to have more than one site, look for a web host that lets you have add-on domains. This means you will be able to store more than one site on their servers without having to open multiple accounts or paying any extra money for your different websites.
  • 2. Think about upgrading your web hosting package so that your website runs on a dedicated server. A dedicated server will provide you with more bandwidth, storage space and security for your website. This will let you give your customers the best experience they can have while looking at your site. Customers that leave feeling good about their experience are likely to return. If you http://www.web.com/websitedesign/diywebdesign.aspx are just starting out, choose a host with good customer service instead of one with more features than you need. As your experience develops, you'll find yourself with a lot of questions that a good host can help you answer. It's better to have a simple web host with competent technical support than a web host with flashy applications and poor technical support. Make sure that you understand the difference between managed and un-managed hosting. Those that are managed can be invaluable to you if you are not an expert yourself on the intricacies of maintaining a website. You will want to choose a managed one who has excellent availability of technical support teams. Use search engines to help you decide. By checking out results on Yahoo or Google, you will be able to get an idea of how many hosting sites exist out there. Sometimes just based on the number of results a host gets or the higher the hosting site is ranked in the results is a good sign of its quality. Before picking a web host, check to see if they have some type of money-back guarantee, or even a trial special where you can test their service. There should be a way to get your investment and money back if you decide their hosting service is not for you. Most hosting companies will give you around 30 days. If you read or find out that a service as a low up-time, this could be a sign that they are filling their servers with too many websites and cause them to crash often. This means your site will be down regularly and loading your pages will take a lot of time. One of the most important things to look for when choosing a hosting provider is high server uptime records. You'll want to look for providers offering uptime in the high 99% range. One caveat though,

If a host on the world wide web is able to maintain constant, dedicated server up-time and a bandwidth cap that is beyond the reach of common procedures; they will likely acquire a few fans. Apply the advice from this article so you are more confident in selecting a host provider.
