More readers = more traffic

A simple search form to search  the db and display the contents via PHP and PostgreSQL

How to Choose a Web Hosting Service

There are presently many web hosting deals in the market. It is therefore very important to understand the various factors affecting the price of these hosting packages in order to choose the right deal for yourself. Below are 5 key factors which you should consider:

1. Space – How much disk space do you need?

Pay only for what you need. To determine how much disk space you will need, simply open “Windows Explorer” or “My Computer” in Microsoft Windows and click on the folder that contains your web sites files. Create a new folder for your web site if you don’t have one and then move all of files you plan to host on the web server into that folder. All you have to do now is right click on your folder to check the size of that folder and you will know how much disk space you will use on the server.

2. Bandwidth – How much traffic are you expecting?

Bandwidth is the amount of traffic that is allowed to occur between your web site and the rest of the internet. The amount of bandwidth a hosting company can provide is determined by their network connections, both internal to their data centre and external to the public internet.

You can try to estimate your site’s monthly data transfer by using the following formula:
[Average size of your web page(s) + any graphics included within] * [number of visitors you expect each day * number of pages each visitor will view] * [30 days in a month] = Total Monthly Data Transfer Usage.

3. Support – Do they provide at least 24/7 Support Desk?

Support is extremely crucial; this is something that cannot be compromised. You should have access to support 24 hours a day, such as the 24/7/365 Live Chat Technical Support by HostGator. This will ensure that your website is up and running most of the time.

You can also test the support desk. Choose anytime of the day or night and contact the support desk to test response time by asking any questions you might have.

4. Budget – How much are you willing to invest?

After you determine the space, bandwidth and extent of support that you require, set a realistic budget for yourself.

There are some companies that offer free web hosting. However, there is no guarantee on the stability of the service provided. In addition, before you purchase a package, search for existing discount coupons. For example, HostGator offers a discount of 25% off the total bill if you input the discount code “Valuediscount25” before you pay for any of their hosting packages.

5. Terms and conditions – Are there any hidden clauses?

Obtain a clear and written understanding of all services and charges of your hosting package by reading the web hosting company’s Terms of Service & Privacy Policy. If questions still remain or some terms are unclear, it is strongly advised that you ask for clarification before signing up for a package.

After you have considered the above 5 factors, you should already be in a much better position to purchase a hosting package that meets your personal or business needs.

In my opinion there are many web hosting service, if you dont know where to start try there seem to be Just right for beginners 🙂
