Web Hosting Company

How does an individual or company reach internet users? How is that gap bridged? It is bridged by a web hosting company. Just as a car transmission takes the power of the engine and sends it to the wheels for forward motion, so too does a web hosting company take a personal or business webpage and send it to the internet so it is accessible to all internet users.


There are quite a few web hosting companies available; with that in mind, what should you look for?
• What is its industry rating?
• How quickly can you get phone support when problems arise?
• How much disk space is available?
• What is the bandwidth?
• Are free domains included?
• How many domains are allowed?
• Is there a money back guarantee?
• What is the set up fee?


Disk space refers to the amount of hard disk space you are given by your web hosting provider. Think in terms of your website. All of the text, pictures, videos, etc. take up space, and it is obviously important that all of that space is provided under the contract with your web host.
Remember, too, that you will be adding on to your site in the future, so that needs to be accounted for as well. You can get an approximation of the amount of disk space simply by loading all of your website documents on your own disk. Windows provides that information simply by going to your disk and right-clicking; under "properties" you will find the space that is being used. It will be the same for a web host site.


Bandwidth is a measure of the amount of data that can be downloaded by potential customers from your website. Obviously, the more traffic you get, the more bandwidth you will need, and if you are successful you certainly do not want to be limited in bandwidth.
A simple rule: the more bandwidth that your web hosting service will give you, the better, and unlimited is the ultimate goal.


Safe Harbor is a framework developed by the U.S. Department of Commerce that insures that your data is protected in non-European countries. It makes sure that your data is secure and safe. Always make sure, when choosing a web hosting service, that they are in compliance with the Safe Harbor regulations.


Again, this is a matter of protection. When receiving credit card payments, or making credit card payments online, protection is the name of the game. A good web hosting company will meet the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards, thus insuring your safety regarding financial transactions.
Yes, there are a great number of considerations when choosing a web hosting company, but choose wisely. The future of your company depends on these considerations.
