Web Hosting Introduction

My First Post
If you have decided to create a website for yourself or your company, you will have to purchase web hosting services from a hosting company. If you do a quick search for them in Google.com, you will find that there are almost too many to count. Choosing the company that is right for you can be a harrowing experience, but there are really only a few basic things to consider.

The first factor to consider is how much space you want to have.
- If you merely want a single page on the Internet with little or no graphics, you can get by with purchasing an account with the smallest amount of space available.
- If you are planning to create a full site with multiple pages and order forms, you will need to make sure you have enough server space to support your entire operation.

Choose and purchase a domain name before buying web hosting space.
You can often purchase a domain name directly from your hosting company, or you can purchase it through a private domain name retailer. Often times, if you type the domain name you want into a search engine, a domain name seller will pop up if the name is not already taken. You can purchase a domain name for a year at a time, or for several years, depending on how far you want to move.

After having a domain name and , create a website to put on the Internet.
There are many do-it-yourself web design programs that are fairly user friendly. You can use program like Frontpage or Dreamweaver or Image Ready to make your. You can also hire service of freelance web designers and professional webdesigning company which will create site for you.

Upload the web page.
Web hosting companies give passwords to allow you access your space on their servers. You can upload files and pages using their own interface programs, or you can utilize the upload tools i.e FTP(File Transfer protocol) tools. Once you upload a page, it is important to make sure it looks correct on a variety of different web browsers. Because each browser interprets information differently, you may run into trouble if you build a site while only previewing it in Internet Explorer. There are often compatibility issues between Safari and Mozilla browsers that distort site tables and images.

Once your website is ready all you need is to pay your web hosting bills, and your site will be available for the whole world to see. You can pay for a year at a time, or you can monthly or quarterly to maintain your place on the World Wide Web. Web Hosting companies usually offer options regarding payment plans, check and choose the offer it it suits you.
