What You should Know About Best Personal Web Hosting
Services
If you are planning to create a personal website anytime soon then you are in luck. Unlike
professional ecommerce websites, personal websites can be rather inexpensive to setup and
maintain. If you design your own site, then domain name registration and monthly hosting will
be your main expenses. Domain names can be purchased from multiple online vendors.
Yearly domain name registration prices can range from between two and twenty dollars. Usually
the largest expense for a website would be the hosting. But personal web hosting is very cheap
when compared to hosting prices for some of the larger commercial sites. I have heard stories
of webmasters with huge video sites paying hundreds of dollars a month for web hosting. Your
personal website hosting should never cost this much. Actually, if you are only making a small
hobby site or a personal blog, you may be able to find free web hosting. If you do opt for the
free hosting, be prepared for a website with a longer domain name. You will also have a
significant amount of screen space used by third party advertising. Companies that provide free
web hosting earn revenue with the advertising space on your website. Some of these
companies will even advertise that the website is a free site created by their company. This
may not bother many free website owners, but would be unacceptable for many webmasters
who are running a website as a business and want to appear professional. The average
internet user is a casual web surfer. If you are just posting pictures and stating your personal
opinion on different topics, then free webhosting may be for you. Be aware that there is a
downside to free web hosting. When you are paying for web hosting and a domain name, you
are effectively paying rent on someone else’s server. That website belongs to you and you
only, and you can only be removed by the authorities if you break certain laws. But, when you
sign up for free web hosting, you are essentially squatting on someone else’s property. They
can kick you out with no warning and you will have no legal recourse. There are many horror
stories of people who tried to save a few dollars by blogging on a free platform only to wake up
and find their blog had vanished and all their articles were gone forever. So, if you choose free
web hosting you may want to back up all your files and content. And, always remember that
you truly do get what you pay for. Many web hosting companies will add extras to their
packages to sweeten the deal. Some web hosting companies offer free website builders to help
you get started. It is also common for web hosting companies to offer reseller programs. These
programs allow users to sell space on the parent hosting company’s server without the users
having to purchase their own server. This can save users thousands of dollars and provide
them with an additional income stream. Many web hosting companies will also throw in extra
perks like 24/7 customer support and video tutorials to help you with the setup process. In my
experience the best personal web hosting company is a2hosting company. Read More about
