From server features to disk space and data transfer, this guide will tell you what you need to know and to consider when shopping for a hosting provider for your small business Web site.
For a small business owner, finding a provider to host your Web site can be a big task. There is a lot more to shopping for a Web site hosting provider than just comparing prices and disk space. When looking for the right provider, you need to start with a good idea of types of services you’ll need for your own Web site. After that, you can work on finding the right hosting provider — one that can meet your needs at a price you can afford.
When you start shopping for the right vendor to provide your Web hosting services, make sure the provider offers packages for small and medium sized businesses (SMBs). You want to invest in a professional plan with professional services for your business, not a company that really only has experience with personal Web site hosting.
