Choosing a Quality Web
Choosing a web host is like choosing a
place to eat, you want quality food with good, honest,
If you are anything like me, you'd probably like to have
a website on the Internet but you just have no idea how
to go about it. All this talk of web hosting, bandwidth,
disc space, and other jargon can cause one to say, "This
is too complicated and technical, I just wanted to have
a place to put all of my favorite skateboarding photos,
cool information on ramp designs, and the best places to
skate!" To get a website on the Web you have to go
through a web host. The question is how do you find the
web host for you?
If you type 'web host' into your search engine like
Google you will get thousands of sites. Hit on one of
these and like any product on the market you will see
all sorts of persuasive propaganda to incite you to use
their company; that is if you can decipher any of the
technical jargon that only computer-heads can
comprehend. Some web hosts offer free business cards
with an account; some probably offer free watches.like
all consumer industries you the buyer must beware.
I'm a writer so I'll use the analogy of a writer's
journal. The journal I like must not be too big or small
in book size. It also must have a good amount of space
allocated to each day, again not a whole page but not
just a few lines. Of course I also want it to be cheap
but of a good quality that won't fall apart while I'm
using it, and I hope it would last for posterity. I just
want the diary, some nice pictures in it are O.K. but
unnecessary especially if it adds to the price.
It's the same with a web host and web site scenario. You
want to get the right deal for you, enough space and
enough access to the public that you wish to associate
with. As a novice who doesn't understand all the jargon
this can pose a problem. Are you an individual, small
business, blog, or a big time corporation? What do you
need and how do you get it?
As far as I can tell the web hosting business is a lot
like the fast food business. The big corporations have
strict guidelines, will offer you special deals, and
have monthly 'cheeseburger specials'. But, I've always
been more interested in the 'Mom and Pop' small time
diners who have that real caring human approach. You
know you are a customer and a person, not just a number
on a sales receipt. I believe the hosting companies are
A smaller hosting company will probably treat its users
with more honest integrity as well as having more
flexibility in dealing with your individual situation.
They can often tailor web site packages to accommodate
exactly what you are looking for as well as the ability
to update them quickly when your needs change.
My advice is to contact a few of the smaller companies.
Look for ones with good reputations or just arbitrarily
email them and compare results from different places.
Which one do you feel most comfortable with? Go for it;
ask as many questions as you can, see how the different
hosts differ in their answers. Try one; if it doesn't
work out try another, it's really easy to move around.
Don't be afraid, you've got nothing to lose except the
