Frequently Asked Questions About Web Hosting
What should I budget for hosting my web site?
There are several categories of hosting plans and also plenty of hosts to choose from. The
initial level to consider is a basic content hosting account which will allow you to load and
manage your web site files and provide email services. An average content hosting rate is
$25 per month. Some hosts require an annual contract while others allow month to month
hosting. There are often additional charges based on the amount of space required, the
amount of traffic to the site (bandwidth usage), additional email accounts and additional
features like the use of a database. Your website developer should be able to take care
of this for you or help to guide you in determining if the plan will meet your needs.
What do I need to set up an E-Commerce site?
When you are setting an E-commerce site you usually require a higher level hosting plan,
including a database to manage product and transaction records, an SSL certificate to allow
for secure pages if users will be entering private information and credit card numbers.
E-Commerce hosting starts at about $50 per month and can increase to several hundred
dollars per month for dedicated hosting of a large site.
I am not happy with my current host, how difficult is it to change?
Changing from one host to another is usually a simple process. The first step is to set up
an account with a new host and then move over the files from one site to the next. The
second step is to change the DNS settings in your domain registration record to point to
the new hostís servers. It can get a little more complicated when you have to move a
database, set up a new SSL certificate and set up existing email accounts. It is still not
that difficult, just time consuming.
