What's Involved in Hosting a Website
Anyone who wants a website must first figure out how to get hosting. For many people, this represents the "technical" area of the Internet with which they have little familiarity.
Hosting means that a copy of the site exists on a server, which is available to any Internet user anywhere in the world. The service comes in different packages for different users. For most Internet services, the site must be able to display the pages and their content. It should also allow the site to process and deliver forms for contact and feedback purposes. These packages are usually very cheap.
For extremely large endeavors, hosting packages become more complex. The largest sites have their own servers, usually located at the service provider's facilities. These servers are dedicated to handling only that website's traffic. Some companies resell their server space to other clients, an arrangement available with most webhosting companies. The size of your site, its functionality, and the amount of traffic it's likely to get-measured in bandwidth-are the most important considerations. Site designers and programmers can usually give accurate projections of these figures.
Choose a hosting company that is available 24/7 so that it can quickly address technical issues. Most companies are very reliable, have a high level of uptime, and are more than willing to help clients inexperienced with the online world. In fact, most of their clients fit that description.
