What is web hosting?
Webhosting is the process of putting your website on a server so that everyone on the internet can see it. A web host stores all your files that make up your website. A permanent connection to the internet and a fast bandwidth is needed to host websites.

How much does it cost?
Depends on what you plant to do with your website. You can get a basic, no frills, webhosting service for as low as $4 on a shared basis with some space for data storage, or you could opt for a pricier e-commerce package.

What are the types of web hosting?
Basically there are three types of hosting –

  • Shared hosting: The cheapest of the lot. Here, you will share space with other websites. This is the best option if your requirements are basic.
  • Virtual Private Servers: More expensive and secure than shared hosting. Here, a portion of the server will be allocated to your website.
  • Dedicated Hosting: This is the real deal. Single access to server resources with full management control. However, it is on the expensive side too.

What is best for me: Free or paid hosting?
Again, it depends on what you intend to do with your website. If you need your website for e-commerce then you need a web host that will provide guaranteed uptime, domain name, and 24/7 customer support.

How do I troubleshoot technical issues?
Technical issues may crop up anytime with your website. It is advisable to get a webhost that provides 24/7 technical support via email or voice.

Can I transfer my website to another host?
Yes. The customer has every right to change their service provider if the services fall short on quality.

Can I host multiple websites with the same package?
Absolutely. Most web hosting companies offer the facility to have multiple domains within one package. However, ensure that you have adequate disk space to go with the multiple domains.

How do I monetize my website?
If you want to sell stuff on your website you will need a package that supports e-commerce tools. Also, you will need faster bandwidth and ample disk space for installing various marketing tools and facilities. If you have a shopping cart, ensure that you have the right package installed.
