If you have created a site and you want other individuals to access it, you must copy your website to a publicly reachable web server.

Where to host your website?

Although you can use your own computer as a web server, it is a more common practice to let a hosting service provider host your web site. The primary reason for that is the bigger reliability and the uninterrupted availability of your web site, since hosting service providers have top-quality hardware and offer a much greater monthly bandwidth allowance, which ensures the faster access to your site from all over the globe.

Website hosting services

Select a website hosting solution, which enables you to register domains and to set up e-mail boxes. Lots of web website hosting firms, like us at Real Tech Hosting, offer a charge-free domain registration as a bonus if you open an account.

Hosting your site on your own

Hosting your web site on your own personal server is always an option, but only in case you have time and the required knowledge. There are certain aspects that you have to take into consideration, among them the hardware and software costs. To build a "real", professional-looking web site, you will need to pay for some powerful server hardware, because you cannot bank on an inexpensive personal computer to accomplish the task. You will also need a permanent breakneck-speed connection without downtimes, which usually comes at a rather high price. If you are availing of licensed software for your web site, you will have to pay a license tax as well. You may also need to cope with bugs and spyware. You will have to maintain your web server constantly running in an environment where "everything could happen". If you do not possess the needed technical know-how, you will need to resort to a system administrator to deal with these issues on your behalf, which will render the price of hosting your site on your own even steeper than that of a dedicated web server delivered by a hosting vendor.

A dedicated web server provided by a hosting distributor

Leasing a dedicated hosting server from a web hosting services provider is a fine option if you wish to develop a content-heavy website or a corporate portal that has very meticulous security requirements. The primary benefits of utilizing a dedicated web hosting solution are the high-speed connection, the permanent power supply and the very powerful hardware. Some hosting distributors, again like us at Real Tech Hosting, supply VPS web hosting and semi-dedicated server hosting services, which are based on very powerful web servers that can be shared by several clients. You can also expect them to provide effective load balancing solutions and the required data backup servers.

Security and dependability

Web hosting distributors are specialized in providing hosting solutions and since this is what they do to earn a living, you can anticipate them to offer constant Internet connectivity, the latest software patches and the best anti-virus software, as well as sysadmins available 24-7 to aid you in occasions of emergency.

Pick your hosting services provider

What you need to take into account when picking your web hosting plans provider is the dependability of the offered web hosting services. Make certain that the hosting accounts provider of your choosing provides a 24-7-365 client support service. Do not put yourself in a position where you cannot solve urgent problems straight away because you must wait till the next business day. What's more, if you select a shared web hosting package, which includes a 24/7 technical support service, this means that there constantly will be system administrators available to solve any urgent predicaments as soon as they show up, which is a very good thing.

Routine data backups

Make sure that your hosting packages provider offers daily backups with the offered hosting services, otherwise you may lose some precious content in the event of a hardware failure or because you have erased something by mistake. The presence of daily data backups is typically pointed out in the web hosting service provider's Terms & Conditions.

Traffic and web server storage space

When picking your hosting packages provider, pay specific attention to the bandwidth quota limitations. Make certain that you don't have to pay a fortune for unpredicted high volumes of bandwidth if your web site becomes more popular. There are a lot of web hosting vendors that offer unmetered web traffic at present, so the best step to take is to make sure that you have made the right choice prior to subscribing.

Content restrictions

Pay specific attention to the hosting supplier's content limitations. If you plan to publish pics or to broadcast video or audio content, make sure that you can accomplish that. Furthermore, the majority of web hosting distributors put limitations as far as utilizing their services for file storage purposes is concerned, so if you upload too many files that are not connected or directly linked to your website, your user account could get closed. This is the reason why double-checking the web hosting distributor's Terms of Use, irrespective of how time-consuming and tiresome this might be, is very essential.

E-mail capabilities

Most web hosting suppliers today also provide email services with all their website hosting packages. It is not a bad idea to verify if the hosting solutions provider of your choice offers such functionalities as well, so as to be certain that you'll get all the functionalities that you require in exchange for your cash.
