If you have set up a website and you wish other persons to notice it, you must host your website on a publicly accessible web server.

Where to host your site?

Although you can use your own PC as a web server, it is a more conventional practice to let a hosting provider take care of your website. The major reason for that is the bigger reliability and the uninterrupted availability of your web site, since hosting service providers have top-notch hardware and allocate a much greater bandwidth usage allowance, which guarantees the quicker access to your site from all around the world.

Shared hosting services

Pick a shared hosting service, which enables you to register domain names and to set up email mailboxes. Many web shared hosting providers, like us at JB1 Hosting, offer a free-of-cost domain name registration as a bonus if you open a hosting account.

Hosting your web site on your own

Hosting your website on your own web server is certainly an option, but only in case you have time and the needed know-how. There are some aspects that you need to take into consideration, including the hardware and software costs. To have an actual, professional-looking web site, you will need to pay for some powerful server hardware, since you cannot count on a low-cost computer to perform the task. You will also require a constant high-speed connection without outages, which typically is offered at a rather high price. If you are utilizing licensed software for your web site, you will need to invest money in the license too. You may also have to cope with bugs and worms. You will need to keep your server constantly running in an environment where "everything could happen". If you do not possess the necessary technical experience, you will need to hire a system administrator to deal with these issues on your behalf, which will render the price of hosting your site yourself even steeper than that of a dedicated web hosting server supplied by a web hosting firm.

A dedicated server offered by a hosting firm

Renting a dedicated web hosting server from a hosting vendor is a good decision if you wish to have a heavy resource-demanding site or a corporate page that has very meticulous safety requirements. The primary upsides of utilizing a dedicated server are the breakneck-speed connection, the permanent power supply and the extremely powerful hardware. Certain web hosting providers, again like us at JB1 Hosting, furnish VPS hosting and semi-dedicated server hosting solutions, which are based on extremely powerful web servers that can be divided among several clients. You can also anticipate them to offer effective server load balancing services and the required backup servers.

Safety and stability

Web hosting companies are specialized in offering web hosting services and because this is what they do to make a living, you can anticipate them to offer constant network uptime, the latest software updates and the best anti-virus software, as well as sysadmins available 24x7 to support you in emergency cases.

Pick your hosting plans provider

What you need to consider when choosing your web hosting provider is the stability of the offered services. Make sure that the web hosting packages provider of your choice offers a 24/7 support service. Do not place yourself in a scenario where you cannot resolve critical problems instantaneously because you have to wait till the next business day. Besides, if you select a shared website hosting package, which features a 24-hour support service, this signifies that there always will be system administrators available to fix any urgent issues as soon as they manifest themselves, which is a very advantageous thing.

Day-to-day backups

Make certain that your hosting plans provider offers day-to-day data backups with the offered hosting services, otherwise you may lose some important data in case of a hardware crash or because you have deleted something accidentally. The presence of day-to-day data backups is usually pointed out in the web hosting supplier's Terms & Conditions.

Traffic and hosting server hard drive space

When selecting your hosting solutions provider, give particular attention to the traffic volume limits. Make certain that you won't have to overpay for unforeseen high volumes of bandwidth if your website becomes more regularly visited. There are lots of web hosting vendors that offer unmetered traffic nowadays, so the wisest step to take is to make sure that you have taken the right decision prior to registering.

Content restrictions

Give particular attention to the web hosting vendor's content limitations. If you want to publish pics or to broadcast live video or audio content, make certain that you can do that. Moreover, most hosting firms place limitations when it comes to utilizing their services for file storage purposes, so if you upload too much content that is not related or directly linked to your web site, your hosting account could get discontinued. Hence, reading the hosting vendor's Terms of Service, regardless of how time-swallowing and tiresome this might be, is very vital.

Email capabilities

The majority of web hosting providers nowadays also offer email services with all their hosting offers. It is not a bad idea to double-check if the hosting provider of your choosing offers such options too, so as to be sure that you'll avail of all the features that you require in return for your money.
