The Web Hosting Hunt HTML version

Finding the right Web Host can be very daunting, especially
since typing ‘web hosting’ in Google will get you a million
search results. Every Web Host seems to be outselling the
others with the best deals and it can be very hard to
distinguish the deals we can trust and the ones we need to
be wary of.
There are several factors we need to consider before
deciding if a particular Web Host is worth our time and
money. After all, the last thing anyone wants to do is
transfer their entire website every few months because their
hosting providers continually fail them.
1. Choosing Between Free or Paid Web Hosting
This all depends on what you want your website for. If you
simply want to have a personal blog to share with friends or
a place to store your photos then free hosting can be fine.
But if you’re planning on creating a business or online store
then paid hosting is much safer and will have much better
features to offer you.
Free websites are excellent for newbies that want to learn all
about web design but don’t want to risk losing money if they
mess up! It’s a great way to learn the ins and outs of web
building and a super way to test your website before actually
using it.
Most free websites have limited disk space, data transfer
and bandwidth but this shouldn’t be an issue if you just want
a small website. Many free hosts will display ads on your site
or pop up ads and this can not only be ugly but annoying to
your visitors.
