Find the Best Hosting Company for Your Needs

Have you noticed all the web hosting companies on the Internet, lately? Seems like every day I see a new hosting provider, each offering a different incentive to get your business. Web hosting has gone down in cost, but it is hard to compare the services offered by each web hosting company. It is not exactly like comparing apples and oranges, is it? Some web hosts give you a free domain name with hosting, bill by the month or year, give you a discount for a longer term contract, offer add-ons like Front Page extensions or SQL or provide unlimited bandwidth or charge for it.

On a basic level, there are four choices for web hosting. In a shared server environment, the web hosting company owns and manages the server, upgrades, maintenance and support. You pay a set amount per month, with extra charges for options you may choose, like extra bandwidth or storage, extensions or security certificates. Virtual hosting is a method that web hosting companies use to host more than one domain name on the same computer, sometime with the same IP. has a searchable web hosting directory for web hosting providers and web hosting plans, promotional and discount coupons and consumer reviews.
