Website Hosting

The other aspect of getting a website online is in having some company hostrepparttar 151145 site. What this means is that you upload allrepparttar 151146 files for your website to a remote computer (called a server) that's attached torepparttar 151147 internet where it goes "live".

There are hundreds (and probably thousands) of companies that offer hosting services. Many are free but they usually insert ads and banners onto your pages which can give them an amateurish look or create several popup ads that just annoyrepparttar 151148 hell out of your visitors. It's best to steer clear of them.

That does mean, however, that you will need to pay to have your website hosted. Prices usually start around $6.95 per month for basic packages although you can save money in some cases by paying for a year or more in advance. Most include a domain name as part ofrepparttar 151149 package. Site Build It! include hosting as part of their package and there are no storage or bandwidth limits as there are with other hosting companies. And there are no extra charges forrepparttar 151150 autoresponder and newsletter mailing facilities they also provide.

Maintaining Your Website

Websites are not static things. You will need to update them, either because you're adding new information or content, changingrepparttar 151151 design or layout, or adding links to products you're selling or endorsing. So website maintenance is an ongoing process that you should be aware of. If you've hired someone to create your website, retainer/maintenance fees may be something you need to factor into your budget. If you're doing it all yourself, then you will need to devote some time to your website's upkeep.

Regardless ofrepparttar 151152 topic you choose for your website, you should remember that any website should, atrepparttar 151153 very least, cover its own running costs.
