Once you secure a domain name you need to have a place in cyberspace for your domain to live; a web host.
Shopping for web hosts can be a real pain in the proverbial, but once you know what you are looking for in a host the process is much easier.
I personally prefer hosts who use unix/linux servers as I have been assured time and time again that unix/linux servers are more robust and secure than other types of servers. That said, I did have websites on cobalt servers for a period of time and had
no problems with the servers, just huge problems with the web hosts - so I changed hosting companies.
Actually, for years I had problems finding reliable hosting companies that provided a high level of professional service; truth be known I had troubles finding reliable hosting companies that provided ANY level of service!
The balance has been finding ones that will provide the service that I expect without charging totally through the roof prices. I also host my own web sites and host other web sites as well for $25 Australian dollars per month.
For this fee you will receive:
$5 a month no set up fees affordable web hosting
- 1 gb of data transfer
- email account eg. email@example.com
- mysql database eg. for an online shop, or mailing list
- 20mb of data storage
- FTP account
- Shopping cart script
- Front Page Extensions support (if required)
- web site stats
- access to logs
- FTP & telnet access
- Free set up
Add ons such as extra email accounts and storage space are negotiable. Most of the sites that I host are ones that I have been contracted to create and maintain, so hosting clients' web sites is simply an extension of the web site design service I provide.
