Cheap Web Hosting

Once you have already established that you are indeed looking for cheap web hosting providers, there are some things that you have to consider. If you look out for these things, you can be sure that you’ll find for yourself a reliable cheap web hosting provider.

Free setup is one of the things that you need to look out for as you decide on getting services from a cheap web hosting company. If the provider tells you that there is a fee for setup, then do not choose them. The setup is easy to accomplish and asking for a fee is just unreasonable. If they ask you to pay for setup, they are just looking out for another way to milk extra cash from you.

Unlimited space and bandwidth is also important to consider when you are looking for cheap web hosting providers. Before, you will not be able to find an inexpensive hosting company that will offer you with unlimited space and bandwidth. Fortunately, this is no longer the case today. This allows you to do more with your website.

To find a cheap web hosting company that you can rely on, it is of the essence for you to be able to assess their service for a minimum of thirty days. There are a lot of hosts that provide you with money-back guarantees. If you do not like the service that they provide, you can inform them of your complaint and you can get your cash back. On the other hand, if you are satisfied with their service, you can stick with their company.

Linux Web Hosting

Flexibility

Another benefit of Linux is the unmatched flexibility which it offers users. It can easily host eCommerce applications, multimedia applications and blogging websites at the same time. As stated earlier, it is easy to update and modify too. It has been created on a general public license and has various distributions working with it.

Pricing

The price of products and services are very important for internet entrepreneurs. When it comes to price, Linux is the cheapest web hosting provider out there today. This advantage comes because there are no extravagant licensing fees to be paid. Anybody can start their online business at a very low cost. Joomla, Drupal and WordPress all run on this platform. It is used widely and has been right on top of the web industry for a while now.

Reliability and security

Security is of prime importance in this day and age. They have become critical after 2015 when a number of websites were hacked and their data leaked online. There has been quite a long debate regarding security and reliability of online hosting providers but Linux is one of the best in terms of online security, that’s for sure. They regularly get rid of obsolete and unnecessary components in order to boost the performance of their servers and reduce costs. It is one of the best and most reliable platforms to host your website on. That’s for sure.

Simplicity and speed

Linux is considered simple and easy to use by most of the online community. It has a lot of pre-installed software which is prepared for extension and modification. Linux has been designed in a way that it supports basic web hosting and this means that it allows users to install MySQL, PHP and Perl Script for maximizing the productivity and performance of their websites whenever they want. It is known for excellent performance and can handle a large number of processes at the same time.

Free Web Hosting

Website Creator and FTP

If you are new to creating a website, and you do not have any or enough scripting experience, look for a free web host that provides free website creating apps to help you develop your site just by simply choosing a template, then adding your text and images.

File Transfer Protocol or FTP is the protocol to transfer your website files to your free web hosting server from your computer or the other way around. This lets you upload your completed website files like images plus other multimedia files to your hosting server from your computer. Also, it lets you download your files from your web host back to your computer. Every reliable free service should provide 24/7 unlimited FTP access.

Email

Your free web host should be able to offer you email services to let you set up @yourdomain.com email accounts. Aside from a webmail interface (to login and handle emails using your web browser), this email service should come with SMTP access to let you setup and access your @yourdomain.com emails via your mobile gadgets.

Support and Uptime

Always go for a free web hosting service that includes free telephone and email support that you can count on.

Though there is no host that provides 100% guaranteed uptime (issues beyond their control like city power outage), they must give “just-in-case” ways to minimize website and email downtime. Such measures may incorporate 24/7 server plus network monitoring, network configurations plus redundant hardware, as well as readily available backup power supply. Though you may not fully understand these technicalities, check if your chosen free service includes these on their site. Otherwise, inquire about it.

Ads

If you are opting for a free web host, you are not expected to pay anything at all for the aforementioned features. However, you might have to accept banner ads in exchange of the pricing. If free web hosting providers force you to include ads on your website, forget about them.

Publish First Website or Blog

1) Think of a good name: The very first step in getting your content published is to think of a good and unique name. Selecting a name for your business or blog can be tricky. A couple of things that you should keep in mind is that the name either directly or indirectly reflects the nature of your blog and it is somewhat easy to remember. This means that you should always choose small keywords rather than long phrases.

2) Buy Domain name: Once you have a good name in mind, next step is to buy a domain. There are quite a few domain name providers out there. Again, it can be tricky to decide which one to go with. However, I would not recommend spending too much time searching for the right domain name provider, as they all are pretty much the same. Domain names cost between $0.99 to $9.99 per year for the first year and then up to $19.99 the year after and onwards. Make sure you do not spend more than $4.99 per year for the first year of your domain name subscription.

3) Buy Web Hosting: This is the most important step of all. Web hosting service is the home to all the files and folders of your content including text and images. Therefore, it is critical to choose the right web hosting service. Although there are a lot of services out there, but it can be difficult to find the right one. Unlike domain name, web hosting services are not all alike. You need to make sure that the service you going to sign up for serves all your current as well as near-future needs. Few of the most important things to look for in a good web hosting is: control panel, storage space, bandwidth, and quantity of domain names that it supports.
