Hosting Packages Description

If you have decided to launch your own personal website, but are not quite certain about what a website is and are unfamiliar with the term "hosting", this article is devoted to explaining these notions in simple language.

What exactly is a website?

A website is an amalgamation of web pages brought together in a systematic fashion. It has a unique web address, also called a URL (Uniform Resource Locator). A website may have just one web page and sometimes may even be comprised of as many as one thousand pages.

What is a web hosting server?

A hosting server enables you to upload your website onto it. In some instances, there might be even 1000's of sites on one single hosting server. The web hosting server basically is a computer with specific hardware, which is stored in a data center facility with special cooling systems, whose purpose is to safeguard the seamless functioning of the web hosting server and all the websites hosted on it.

To sum up, a web hosting server will be really a launch pad when the time comes for you to launch your site. It could be any kind of web site - a business site containing multiple webpages, or a web site, which has just several webpages and which you have created just for your comrades and relatives.

You've made a decision about what your site will be, now what?

As soon as you have reached a decision about what sort of website you desire to develop, the next step is to find out what kind of web hosting service you must select for your Internet venture. Basically, there are two kinds of website hosting services - free-of-cost web hosting services and professional paid website hosting services. The free-of-cost hosting solution is generally utilized by persons that do not have a business-related site.

Strengths and weaknesses of the cost-free web hosting solution

You will not receive many options with a free-of-cost hosting package. Features such as traffic, memory and hosting server disk drive storage space are limited and inadequate for an elaborate online store or a business-related site, or even for a website with a lot of artwork. Additionally, there are a lot of web banners put on your site by the hosting vendor. These ads occupy plenty of space on your site and are pretty embarrassing.

Shared web hosting

The professional paid shared web hosting services tend to be more dependable and include plenty of advanced features in addition to the high-power hosting server that will accommodate your web site and its content. In spite of that, it is essential to find out which features your web site demands prior to choosing your web hosting plan. You should not hurry and end up investing cash in something that your site does not require.

Select your hosting services provider

It is not difficult to find a hosting accounts provider. You need to simply conduct an online survey in order to find a web hosting vendor that satisfies your website's demands. Before you make your actual decision, take a glance at the specifications of the plans provided by the web hosting distributors that have seized your attention. We, for example, are among the leading hosting service providers on the marketplace now. The big range of services and our prices are what renders us an alluring option. Nevertheless, you must establish what sort of web hosting service you need and whether the price matches your budget. Besides, you must always remember to explore the provider's Terms of Use before registering to verify that your website is not abusing them.

Signing up for a web hosting account

As soon as you have found out what features are best for your site, the next step is to sign up for an account with the hosting company of your preference. You will receive all the important tools for managing your web site files and databases. With us, for example, you will receive a hosting Control Panel, which contains domain name, website, database and mailbox administration areas. You log into the Control Panel using your unique user name and password, which grants you safe access to the portion of the web hosting server where your site will be located.

Uploading your website

You can either upload your web site via an FTP software application or, as is with most hosting vendors, via an online tool that is included within the Control Panel. With us, the File Manager is extremely intuitive and offers features similar to those encountered in Windows Explorer, which makes file management exceptionally easy. We offer additionally a website builder and a PHP-driven script installation tool, which you can utilize to develop your website if you have no programming knowledge and are making your very first steps in web design. The web-based web site builder, whose name is SiteStudio, will also spare you the time and effort of making a website on your PC and then uploading it using FTP client software or the File Manager interface.
