Picking a Good Web Host is Critical to Developing a Good Web Business

Picking a Good Web Host is Critical to Developing a Good Web Business

Who Is Your Web Host?

Choosing a good Internet Website Host could be one of the most important things you could do.  Is it going to be an easy set up?  Will they handle your domain Registration?  And the most important question is: How much will it cost?

Most web hosts will handle your domain registration.  Your job would be to figure out the best possible domain name like www.best-possible-name.com.  This is your URL where people can find your site.  Picking a host is just as important as this. 

As your business / company expands, you may want added features on your website.  Maybe you will want a forum / bulletin board for your customers and potential customers to discuss your products.  You might want to have a personal Blog.  These are all features you should consider before choosing a web-host. 

 

If you sell products you will want to have a host that offers an e-commerce solution.  The more popular hosts will have a built in ready to go program for this.  Basically all you will need to do is upload the description, image, and pricing details.  The e-commerce site will be searchable and indexed.  You can have categories and sub-categories. 

Some hosts will offer discount on advertising campaigns with Google or Yahoo.  This will help drive traffic to your site.  You will want to make sure that you upload each page you create to the search engines.  Most hosts will have a simple solution for that.

Another important thing to consider is the hostís technical support.  I looked for a host that offered 24 hour phone support.  Sometimes I will be working on a project and hit a snag.  It could be 2AM.  It is always nice to pick up the phone and be able to talk to someone about it.

I recommend you pick the host first.  Pick the host before you pick your domain name.  Search the web and do your research.  After you pick the host use their service to pick your domain name (i.e. domain registration).  This is a good idea because you will not have to monkey with transferring domains or registering your domain with another host.  Here is another good reason to use your host to pick a domain:  most hosts will offer free domain registration if you choose them as your host. 

So remember, pick a good web host first!
