How To Choose a Web Host

How much space do you really need?

Most web hosts will offer you more space that you need. Most charge extra for more bandwith, that is, how much data that you actually give out do web surfers. Unless you are very, very busy most hosts will give you more than enough.

Before you select a Web Host Your main concerns should be what you want your site to do.

  • Budget, no frills
  • E-commerce
  • Private servers and Private networks
  • Windows (Frontpage) Hosting

Sit down and make a list of what you want from your site. Check out the Budget sites first, there is so much free software offered these days that the so called "budget" sites may offer all that you need and more. If not move up a little at a time until you find what you want.

Start designing your site first. You may find what you first wanted has changed.
