Host Your Web Site
Welcome to step five - hosting the web site. The host
is the computer that is specifically connected to the internet for
the purpose of providing web visitors access to your site. You upload
your files to the Host computer and configure your Domain Name to
point to this Host and web visitors see your files when they enter
your domain name.
Free Web Site Hosting
There are generally two sources of free web site hosting. First is
your Internet Service Provider. Many ISPs offer your space for your
web site as part of your Internet Access package. The ISP usually has
some limitations on size, monthly traffic, use for commercial
purposes and use of your own domain name. The second is
commercial web hosting companies that offer free space in exchange
for letting them run ads on your site. Limited site size and the ads
are a the main drawbacks of this choice.
Inexpensive Web Site Hosting
Web site hosting is available everywhere for really low monthly fees.
Most include access to a site control panel that lets you do all the
administration tasks of managing a site (setting up email, backups,
etc). Compare bandwidth, server space, setup fees, and monthly cost.
Another thing to look for and compare is their Service Level Guarantees.
Many web design firms offer managed hosting. They take care of the
control panel, Email setup, bandwidth management and all the other
host management tasks. ComputerPages.net
has a number of clients that have built their own web site but have
us provide managed hosting. Check the website design firms in your
area for this service.
