Choosing the Best Web
Hosting Service

web hosting packagesSelecting the best web hosting service for your website is a crucial step in the site building process.

Start researching hosting options as soon as possible so that you can take full advantage of all the features the hosting service offers.


Because many web hosts include registering your domain name as part of their package. The best web hosting packages will also include a wide range of features such as keyword search tool, a selection of website design templates, email account and graphic storage all as part of the monthly fee.

Features like these that are included in as part of the website hosting package will save you extra expense as well as time!

Choosing your website hosting service is one of the first and most important decisions you will need to make.

There are many free basic website hosting services such as those provided by the major search engines like Google, Yahoo, MSN or even from email services.

However, unlike a paid hosting service which include a wide range of standard site building tools and features, a free website business hosting service will typically only provide the bare minimum necessary to get a web site launched.

Then what?

You won't have all the tools you need to build a fully functional website.  (Not a good thing at all!)

Free hosting is more than adequate if you intend to build a small personal website but for an online ebusiness you will need many more options than a free hosting service can offer.

When building a fully functional ecommerce website you need to have a web business hosting service that not only offers a full suite of tools but also includes unlimited server space so that your web site can continue to grow.

Explore web hosting companies that offer a full range of features.

But be forewarned!

You will quickly discover that some website hosting services may only offer a basic package then charge an additional amount for many of the other features you will need. You don't want to have extra service charges every month when your site requires more server space, graphic storage, or email capacity.

Additional expenses such as these can run the gamut, up to thousands of dollars a year! (Gulp!)  Focus your research instead on companies that do not charge extra for any of their features and do not limit the server space necessary to host your site to a specified allotment.

So be sure to compare all the features included in the hosting service to ensure that you select the best web hosting service that will provide the most bang for your buck.

  • Integration of payment options like a shopping cart
  • Opportunities to communicate with your visitors and potential customers such as an automated newsletter
  • Autoresponders
  • Forms
  • Large capacity email account
  • Unlimited server space
  • Password protected pages 
  • A variety of statistical data analysis tools so you can easily determine and monitor which strategies are working and which are not

Like most people, I personally like getting more for less!

Don't you?

I've prepared this list of the basic features to look for in a hosting service:

Your next step is to compare web hosting features offered by the top business hosting service you have researched to be sure that you are getting the most features for least out of pocket expense.

It is also very revealing to carefully read the testimonials and/or case studies of the people who have actually used the service.

There is nothing more useful than learning exactly what others experiences have been (the good, the bad and the ugly) before you commit yourself.

Finally, review the fine print regarding customer service and support.

Like everyone else who builds websites, you too will occasionally get stuck or have a problem that you will need help resolving.

When people ask me what are the top three qualities to look for when assessing which is the best web hosting service
I would have to say:
  • The range of features included in the service
  • Support (Both customer support provided by the company as well as a webmaster forum for peer support!)
  • Affordability

. . .and remember:

Be sure to get the most for least!
