This varies widely between web hosting companies. Now that I have used Cpanel I wouldn't want to be without it, mainly because I am used to it and now know what features it has and how to use most of them. It's a lot easier to stick with something you know than have to try switching to a new User Interface.

Are you designing your site with Frontpage?. If so, check your host supports this, as not all do.

Another area you may want to research isrepparttar supplied statistics. What sort of web statistics software is included with your web hosting account? Is, for example, Awstats included?

4. Fees.

I'd rather pay a little more for a full feature set and reliabilty than getrepparttar 134848 cheapest deal and have problems with server downtime, bandwith issues, etc. With hosting deals you usually get a level of service that is relative torepparttar 134849 price you have paid.

These are just a few "necessary" services to look for when choosing a web host for your new website.

3. Low Cost Hosting - Watch out for very low cost hosting packages (i.e. $2.50 per month). They usually require something in return, which can take away profits from your online business.

- Each time an advertisement banner is placed on your website, it's designed to get your visitor to click out of your website and go some place else. Most free or low cost web hosting services place these banners atrepparttar 134457 very top of your web page - givingrepparttar 134458 visitor an opportunity to click out of your site before getting torepparttar 134459 first words of your presentation.

- One complaint that comes to mind about a free hosting service was thatrepparttar 134460 company's server became overcrowded andrepparttar 134461 customer could not get their website to come up 50% ofrepparttar 134462 time. When this happens, your business is closed - and you have no control over this situation.

One final point about hosting before closing. If you get your own domain name, and your own hosting, your visitors will have more confidence in your site, and will be more willing to buy your products or services.

Search for a web host that offers fabulous service, affordable rates, and everything you'll need for your online business. You'll be glad you did!
