My Web Hosting Experiences

My Web Hosting Experiences

Do you need a website? Well, becoming a website owner is not complicated at all. You need a domain name and a web host. It’s that simple. Get those and you are on your way with a new business or blog.

Domain names are cheap. You can get them for abour $10, depending on your registrar.

Shared web hosting is not that expensive either. Some of the good one go for as low as $2/mo.

MySQL Databases

Opt for a host that offers a minimum of 10 databases. This will come handy if you decide to add something new to your existing website, or create a whole new one. A 1GB allowance for databases is important for most applications.

Disk Space and Bandwidth

Most of the big name shared hosting companies will offer unlimited bandwidth and disk space. If you choose a web host that limits either of them, make sure you get at least 10GB web space and 100GB bandwidth.

Fatcowreviews.net is saying that a good, reliable web hosting service will provide at least 10 databases as an element of its offer. This is one thing to check before signing up. For many clients who wish to continuously expand, getting enough databases is essential.

FatCow

FatCow

FatCow

One of my favorite web host is FatCow. There is adequate information that support their claims about uptime and service quality. Customer service, cost, consistency and uptime, software, space, tech support, traffic and user-friendliness are all areas where FatCow get a big green checkmark. Still, please note that there is no perfect service. You might see a lot of negative reviews. There are statistics that tell us that an unsatisfied customer is ten times as likely to leave a review than a satisfied one.

As a matter of fact, one of the things that attracts clients to this hosting service is sweet deals. People stumble upon a big discount and they cannot resist.

WebHostingHub And The Others

WebHostingHub

WebHostingHub

There is an endless list of competitors, like WebHostingHub, Hostgator or Bluehost. There are also many reviews on those, e.g. see this WebHostingHub review.

Don’t Forget Backups

No matter which web host you choose, don’t forget about backups. Regular off-server backups are crucial. You don’t want to work on your website for months (or even years) and one day it’s all gone. It’s possible, and it happened to me too.
