All About Hosting - AKA Hosting 101

So what is Website Hosting anyway?

OK, now you have an idea of what you want a website for, and either you own or are already thinking about domain names. Now you need a server (a big and powerful computer) to run your website and keep it going all the time. The easiest way to accomplish this is to have your website "hosted" by a hosting company. For most websites, your site will share space with many other sites on a server. It is kind of like renting a storage space in a large storage facility, where management handles all the utilities and details for you. All you do is pay a rental fee that is either monthly, quarterly, or annually.

How do I know what type of hosting plan will work for me?

The size and capabilities your website requires will determine what type of hosting service you need – from a basic to commercial, and everything in between. Hosting package pricing is based upon a few factors. One of these is bandwidth (in computer networks, bandwidth is often used as a synonym for data transfer rate – the amount of data that can be carried from one point to another in a given time period – usually per second). Another factor is how much actual space your website will take up on a server. Additional factors include; how many mailboxes you need, if you are running a database, if you need a shopping cart, etc. Most personal and small business websites operate just fine on our Level I plan, which is only $12 per month.
