If you have developed a website and you would like other persons to discern it, you must transfer your web site content to a public server.

Where to host your website?

Even though you can use your own computer as a server, it is a more conventional practice to let a hosting service provider host your website. The major reason for that is the bigger stability and the uninterrupted availability of your site, since web hosting providers have high-end hardware and allocate a much higher traffic usage allowance, which ensures the speedier access to your web site from all over the world.

Web hosting services

Select a web hosting service, which permits you to register domains and to set up email mailboxes. Many web web hosting vendors, like us at DEMKADA, offer a free-of-charge domain registration as a bonus if you open a hosting account.

Hosting your website yourself

Hosting your site on your own server is no doubt an option, but only in case you have time and the necessary proficiency. There are some facets that you have to take into consideration, including the hardware and software expenses. To maintain an actual, proper web site, you will have to invest cash in some powerful server hardware, because you cannot bank on an inexpensive computer to accomplish the task. You will also need an uninterrupted high-speed connection without downtimes, which usually comes at a pretty high price. If you are utilizing licensed software for your web site, you will have to invest cash in the license as well. You may also have to deal with bugs and worms. You will need to keep your server constantly running in an environment where "everything could happen". If you do not possess the necessary technical competence, you will have to employ a sysadmin to tackle these things for you, which will make the price of hosting your site yourself even higher than that of a dedicated hosting web server supplied by a web hosting distributor.

A dedicated hosting web server delivered by a hosting supplier

Renting a hosting server from a web hosting solutions provider is an excellent choice if you wish to develop a heavy resource-swallowing web site or a corporate portal that has very strict security requirements. The most significant upsides of utilizing a dedicated server are the high-speed connection, the uninterruptible power supply and the very powerful hardware. Some hosting distributors, again like us at DEMKADA, provide VPS hosting and semi-dedicated web server hosting services, which are based on extremely powerful physical servers that can be shared by several clients. You can also anticipate them to offer effective server load balancing services and the necessary backup servers.

Security and stability

Hosting vendors are specialized in delivering hosting solutions and because this is what they do for a living, you can anticipate them to offer constant network uptime, the latest software updates and the best anti-virus software, as well as sysadmins available 24/7 to support you in situations of emergency.

Pick your hosting solutions provider

What you need to take into consideration when selecting your web hosting accounts provider is the stability of the offered services. Make sure that the web hosting plans provider of your choosing offers a 24x7x365 client support service. Do not place yourself in a scenario where you cannot resolve urgent predicaments instantly because you must wait till the next working day. Besides, if you choose a shared web hosting package, which features a 24-7-365 support service, this suggests that there always will be system administrators available to fix any critical issues as soon as they manifest themselves, which is a very beneficial thing.

Day-to-day backups

Make certain that your hosting solutions provider offers everyday data backups with the offered web hosting services, otherwise you may forfeit some precious content in the event of a hardware crash or because you have erased something by mistake. The availability of routine data backups is usually mentioned in the web hosting company's Terms of Use.

Bandwidth and disk storage space

When picking your hosting services provider, give specific attention to the traffic amount limitations. Make certain that you don't have to overpay for unforeseen high volumes of bandwidth if your website becomes more regularly visited. There are plenty of web hosting service providers that offer unlimited bandwidth nowadays, so the most reasonable step to take is to make certain that you have taken the correct decision before opening an account.

Content limitations

Give special attention to the hosting vendor's content limitations. If you wish to post pictures or to stream video or audio content, make certain that you can achieve that. Besides, the majority of web hosting suppliers set restrictions as far as using their services for file storage purposes is concerned, so if you upload too much content that is not related or directly linked to your website, your web hosting account could get closed. This is the reason why exploring the service provider's Terms of Use, irrespective of how time-swallowing and tedious this might be, is extremely essential.

E-mail capabilities

Most hosting suppliers nowadays also offer electronic mail services with all their website hosting packages. It is not a bad idea to verify if the hosting provider of your choosing offers such functionalities too, so as to be sure that you'll avail of all the features that you require in exchange for your money.
