ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT WEB HOSTING



What is Web Hosting? 

Web hosting is a service that allows organizations and individuals to post a website or web page onto the Internet. A web host, or web hosting service provider, is a business that provides the technologies and services needed for the website or webpage to be viewed on the Internet. Example: where2register.com. Websites are hosted, or stored, on special computers called servers.
 
When Internet users want to view your website, all they need to do is type your website address or domain into their browser. Their computer will then connect to your server and your Web Pages will be delivered to them through the browser.

Most hosting companies require that you own your domain in order to host with them. If you do not have a domain, the hosting companies will help you purchase one.

If you decide to create and host your website with where2register.com, you can get a custom domain, email addresses, and web hosting all bundled into one subscription.

Tips you need to know when searching for a web host

Before you begin your search, analyze your needs. What features does your website require? What features are good-to-have? And what features are critical?

Things to think about:
  • What programming language will you be using?
  • Do you need a database?
  • Do you need email addresses?
  • Do you have a domain name?
  • How much bandwidth do you expect to use?
  • How much disk space do you need?
  • What is your budget?
Once you understand your needs, look at your selection of web hosts:
  • Do they offer fast connections?
  • Do they have a back-up system in place to protect your data in case there is a power outage?
  • Do they require you to make payments in advance? Who processes these payments charges, the company itself or a third-party payment gateway?
  • How is their customer support? What is their response rate? How knowledgeable is their support staff?
  • Do they provide you with an online website manager or an account control panel?
  • Do they support you with an online support manual, knowledge base, tutorials?
The basic features you should look for when selecting a web host:
  • 24/7 reliable tech support
  • Your own domain name
  • Sufficient monthly transfer (traffic) and disk storage for your website needs
  • POP3/Webmail email accounts, email aliases and autoresponders
  • Scripting support as your website requires
  • Unlimited free access to your server via FTP
  • Easy access to your log files
