Deciding upon a hosting company can be hard, especially if you have never had to buy hosting before. New web developers often feel overwhelmed when it comes time to find a hosting provider. There are so many options available! How will you ever pick just one? There are some tricks and tips that you can use to speed the process along.
The truth is that choosing a host company
is not all that different from buying anything else that you need. Choosing things to purchase does not change.
Here are some questions you can ask yourself to make the process easier
What kind of e-mail set up do you require?
When your venture involves using e-mail to market yourself, you will want a hosting provider who can provide list building software as well as automatic responders. If your project will involve a lot of contributors, you might think about giving each of those contributors an easily accessible, project-focused e-mail address. If this is the case you will want to make sure that your hosting company's e-mail program is set up to meet your extensive requirements. Check out the e-mail options for each hosting company you are thinking of using to make sure that each company meets your requirements.
Is your mind already planning out your budget?
If you can't afford a big hosting package and don't mind doing some advertising for others, you might choose a host who charges minimal fees in exchange for putting ads up on your webpage. If money is not an issue, you might think about choosing a host that offers more options and is a little more expensive. There are also people who will sell you space on their own server accounts in exchange for a small fee. Planning your budget now, before you begin your hosting search, will speed up the process considerably because it will cut down your prospects by at least fifty percent.
It is easy to fake a good review on a website so if you want to get information that you can trust, ask your site developer friends which hosting company they like best. Most website developers are happy to help newcomers figure out which hosting options are best. You might even be able to use some of the site owner's server space to give it a try while you figure out which hosting service is right for you.
It is not uncommon for a site owner to sell server space he is not using as a way of earning extra money. To buy server space for a good price (on someone else's account) ask your site builder friends for good deals. Ask web developers you trust which hosting they use. Do not spend a bunch of time surfing through hosts if you do not have to. Take some easy steps to narrow that playing field!
Before you start looking for a good hosting provider do some research and plan out your project—this will save you tons of time down the road! Asking questions and exploring a variety of options is totally okay. You'll be happy you were thorough.
