1.Count number of pages in your web site and add a buffer for future expansion. 2.Determine average number of characters per page – not number of words. The number of characters includes everything, letters, spaces, and, punctuation. Most word processing programs such as MS Word will count number of characters for you. 3.Multiply average number of characters times number of pages in step 1. 4.Now: one character = 1 Byte, and 8 Bytes = 1 bit, so divide total number of characters determined in step 3 by 8. This gives you total number of bits. 5.1000 bits = 1 KB; 1000 KB = 1 MB, and 1000 MB = 1 GB. Note: For technical minded 1 GB actually equals 1024 MB, but there is really no necessity to get that picky in this case. 6.Divide total number of bits by 1,000,000 and your answer will be number of MB of disk space you need to rent from hosting service.
Determining amount of transfer space you will require is largely an approximation based on number of visitors you expect per day. Most of better hosting services provide you with about 3 GB, which is ample for average web site. If you expect more than a thousand visitors a day, you will, of course, need more transfer space.
The top ten hosting companies are listed conveniently at http://www.webhostinginspector.com/index.php?from=1 along with their rankings, disk space offered, bandwidth (transfer space), and reviews.
