Web Hosting for your Business

By: Padhost.com

If you don't already have a web site for your business, you need to get one as soon as possible.

Once you register your domain name, you need to consider your web hosting options. If you are hosting for your business, I recommend using dedicated ip hosting. You'll need dedicated ip hosting if you're planning on using SSL (Secure Sockets Layer). SSL will allow you to secure your communications online, as well as data like e-mail and web browsing.

Good customer service is also a must for any web hosting company. If you ever have problems you'll want someone you can contact to help.

Be sure to choose a web hosting company that uses popular software that will easily allow you to host your web site. I like the popular control panel Cpanel because I can also easily edit databases via PHPMyAdmin. Installing a shopping cart for my business with Cpanel was also a breeze, I highly recommend it.

Affordability with me is also a huge factor. Web hosting solutions are cheap now, $20 a month will buy you all you'll ever need. In fact, if you only have a couple sites you won't even have to spend that much.

Bandwidth is also important when looking at your web hosting solutions. If you only have one or two websites, 10 GB per month will probably be more than enough bandwidth to hold you over. As your website grows and you need more bandwidth, see what kind of prices you can buy more for.

When it comes to disk space I have never needed much, under 100 MB. If you plan on hosting videos or other huge files, you will probably need a little more than that.

Remember to promote your business website in as many places as you can. Put it on your business cards, fliers, and any other material you might hand out to potential customers. Your website can only inform when people know about it, so be sure to make plenty of noise.
