  3. 3. Intro<br />Finding the right host for your site; from the free to the very expensive, we will discuss what your options are so that you can find your “perfect host”.<br />
  4. 4. What’s a Host?<br />A host is a server which provides a home for your website on the World Wide Web. Just as your computer contains all your files, so a host contains all the files needed to run your website.<br />Why can’t you just keep all those files on your own computer? Because that would mean users would have to connect directly to your computer to see your website. Not a good idea—it wouldn’t be secure and it would make your machine run like a tired snail.<br />With a host, you can simply upload everything you need to the server and your users can then connect there to see your site.<br />It lets the site run faster and allows it to have all the security and extras it needs.<br />
  5. 5. Free Hosting<br />Positives:<br />Free<br />You manage the server software andnetwork.<br />
  6. 6. Free Hosting<br />Negatives:<br />Search engines view free hosting services as inferior and sometimes do not include them in their index.<br />Some free hosting services do not allow you to use a custom domain name.<br />The bandwidth is restricted and may cause difficulty for visitors attempting to access your site.<br />Because the service is free, someproviders do not strive for 100% uptime which could result in your site being frequently inaccessible. <br />Software availability is limited, and free hosts do not generally provide database options.<br />Disk space is sometimes limited; ensure that you are getting all the room you need.<br />Poor response time from limited support.<br />
  7. 7. Expensive, Dedicated Servers<br />Positives:<br />Server, software and network is managed and supported for you.<br />You can select a custom domain name.<br />Search engines don’t view you as second class.<br />Improved quality and speed response.<br />Uptime generally guaranteed.<br />Improved bandwidth. <br />
  8. 8. Choices<br />Your choice of server will depend on how much money you have available at the beginning and how much you plan to grow in the future. In my opinion, for commercial sites, free hosting is a waste of time.<br />Your users are going to get blasted with annoying pop-ups every time they surf to your page, it’s going to be impossible to get a decent position in a search engine, and you don’t even get a real business URL.<br />No one’s going to remember your Web address if they have to type But it is possible to choose a cheap host at the beginning and move up as your business begins to bring in money.<br />
