Web Hosting Australia - What is Web Hosting? Choosing a suitable Web Hosting Package


What is Web Hosting?

If your Domain name is your 'address' then Web hosting is the 'house' where your website lives. The files that make up your website is stored on a server with your web hosting provider. This allows people on the internet to view your website. For a more detailed and in depth explanation visit the wiki.

Choosing a suitable Web Hosting Package:

There are plenty of web hosting providers to choose from both local and international. You will find that some Australian Web hosting companies are 're-sellers' for overseas based web hosting providers. This simply means that the physical location of the servers is overseas and not here in Australia.

For basic websites some key features to consider when choosing a web hosting package:

Web Space: amount of memory space allocated for you to store your website files

Bandwidth: allowable transfer of data when visitors access your website. More visitors means more transfer of data occurs.

Uptime: this refers to the availability of your website being "online", alot of web hosting providers will claim 99.9% uptime.

WebStats: statistics on your website visitors, always handy to know how many people are visiting your website.

At the end of the day, web hosting providers are competing for your business and they all pretty much have the same features as the next guy. So what you would want is a provider that has great customer service and reliable customer support.

Do your research - plenty of cheap web hosting providers offering $50.00 of web hosting for 1 year with all the necessary features you need to get started.
