Simple Guide to Web Hosting
You need a server to host your site so that it can
be viewed over the internet. This server can either be an Internet
Service Provider or of your own. Most websites are hosted by an
Internet Service Provider because they can provide powerful server
hardware, high speed connections and reliable server support.
Most providers have very fast connections to the Internet such
as a full T3 fiber-optic (45 Megabytes per second) connections which
is about 1000 high speed (56 Kilobytes per second) modems combined.
For those who are looking to set up their own servers and host
their own websites, a personal computer is often not powerful enough
to do the job. As the name suggests, a personal computer can hardly
handle multiple visitors to your website- servers are needed to
handle these visitors simultaneously.
Getting Your Web Hosting
There are thousands of companies that offer web hosting for your
website. Which to choose and what to look out for? With the multitude
of features and terms in each hosting plan, it can be puzzling for
those who are just starting out.
The golden rule in choosing your website: Nothing beats reliable
web hosting. Many web hosting plans offer more space, more benefits
than others. The decision to your web hosting should be based on
reliability. We have seen too many disappointed website owners who
chose benefits and space over reliability.
