Choosing a web hosting plan for the first time website owner can be a daunting task. So many web hosting companies offer what look like identical plans at different prices, so how do you know which hosting plan is the right one for your website?
What kind of website are you going to have? Will it have a lot of pictures or files that are large? If you’ve already created your website, take a look at the total number of files. If it’s over a Gigabyte, space is going to be your number one concern. Keep in mind that with most web hosting companies your total allotted hosting account space is shared between your web pages and online files and your email accounts. If you’re going to be using your email account to receive large attachments, take that into consideration when estimating how much space you’re going to need.
Are you fairly new to web hosting? Are you unsure how to deal with email issues? Make sure you choose a web hosting plan that will offer the support you need to properly make use of your web site. If you don’t know how to update your website, make sure your hosting plan includes some sort of site maintenance option. It can save you hundreds of dollars later on.
Will your site require PHP? Will it require MySQL databases? Do you want an online web site builder? Most reputable web hosting companies include these extras as standard in their hosting plans, but make sure the hosting plan you choose has the extras you need…and want.
