How to get a website

Get good web hosting

You have to choose a web hosting service that will provide you with space and necessary tools to create your website and email accounts. They also must provide you with good and quality support if you have problems.

There are some things to consider when choosing a web hosting company:
  • Tools: maybe you would need beginner user friendly web desing tools. If you don't know HTML, maybe it is a good option for you.
  • Quality support: personally this is one of the most important factors when choosing a web hosting company. You will need 24 hours support for any problem you may have. Ask if they are available by email, phone or live support chat.
  • Storage and bandwidth: this is the space you may have for your website and the amount of traffic you can have a month. Be sure you have enough of both factors.
  • Reliability: ask which is the uptime, this means the percentage of time per month your site will be available. It would be nice a 99,9% uptime.
  • Control panel: lately many web hosting companies have control panels which are very useful to create your own email accounts, upload your files, protect your pages, see statistics, etc.
  • Upgrading: ask if you can upgrade at any time to a bigger plan when you need more space or more bandwith.
Actually there are cheap and good web hosting services, so it is highly recommended to contract a web host. You can contract a web host for $3 or $5 a month. 2006 - All rights reserved
