Hosting services allow anybody to make a website accessible via the web.
Web hosts provide space on a server owned or leased for use by clients, providing Internet connectivity for websites and email, typically in a data center, to be served to the world.
Not all Hosts are equal, as the services that can run from the server (functionality such as email, databases, applications etc;) differ with each Host.
There are many cut-rate hosts on the Internet where you can host your site for very little. We don't recommend this. Hosting requires technical skill and money to invest in solid architecture.
What affects the cost of running a website?
Hosting space requirements differ with the amount of pages and images needed. Websites can range in size from Mb's to a Gb or more. The space (Mb's or Gb's) required on the server for your website and services will need to be considered along with email and room for expansion.
Databases can run interactive scripts and applications on your website such as blogs, shopping carts, content management systems, forums and more, all of which can be on one website! The level of functionality created on a website impacts on how much space you need and the overall maintenance required to update the website's applications.
Hosting space requirements differ with the amount of email accounts needed. Email accounts can range in amount of accounts needed and the size of each account.
Over time the amount of visitors (other wise known as traffic) will increase and the required bandwidth (amount of data transferred) to serve your website pages and services such as email.
Knowing your needs will ensure you get the best value.
