If you take a look at reviews of companies that host websites, you find a lot of information about bandwidth, disk space and prices, and some information about how helpful the support staff are (or are not, as the case may be). Sometimes you will find information about how fast your website will upload if you host with a particular company.
One of the most important features about website hosting is not discussed – reliability. That is to say, out of 365 days of the year, how many days is your website actually up and running as opposed to not working, under construction, down due to technical difficulties or administrative confusions? These things happen all the time. One would think, when looking for a company to host a website that one of the most important factors would be to have that website working and available to customers 365 days a year with no down time at all.
And the second most important thing would be: will the company support team help you if you need some help? Perhaps you use a professional web designer, so this becomes a moot point, until the site is down and the web designer is out of touch.
After these factors are taken into consideration, you can start looking at pricing. Website hosting prices presently go for $2.95 a month to over $40 a month, and the higher the price does not necessarily mean you get more for your money. Sometimes you can buy a package, more disk space, more bandwidth, more technical support, but some sites that cost $35 a month give the same thing as sites that cost $4.95 a month.
Disk space is the amount of space your website will consume in the place that it is stored. Graphics and pictures take up more space than text. Audio takes up more space than pictures. But most websites are not so large that they need extra space, over and above the usual website hosting plans. Five megabytes will suffice for most.
Bandwidth refers to the amount of traffic to the website and the amount of data that you upload to the website or that others download from the website. It’s like traffic on a highway. If there is a lot of traffic, it slows down. If there is not a lot of traffic, it can move faster. The rate depends on how wide the highway is. Bandwidth is the highway.
Website hosting companies determine how much bandwidth you are allowed to use for your website monthly. If you have heavy traffic in one month, the company may shut down your website for going over the limit of bandwidth. Or they may charge more money.
Bandwidth is measured in bytes or KB or MB. As a comparison, if you download one MP3 audio file, it will use the same amount of bandwidth as if you view 81 web pages. So how much bandwidth you need for your website depends on how much traffic you expect and what you will use it for.
Just make sure you know what your hosting company allows and what the consequences are if you exceed the monthly allowance of bandwidth. It could be quite a surprise if, in the middle of a business boom, your website is suddenly shut down.
