Choosing a web host is like choosing a place to eat, you want quality food with good, honest service.Written by M6.net
If you are anything like me, you’d probably like to have a website on Internet but you just have no idea how to go about it. All this talk of web hosting, bandwidth, disc space, and other jargon can cause one to say, “This is too complicated and technical, I just wanted to have a place to put all of my favorite skateboarding photos, cool information on ramp designs, and best places to skate!” To get a website on Web you have to go through a web host. The question is how do you find web host for you?
If you type ‘web host’ into your search engine like Google you will get thousands of sites. Hit on one of these and like any product on market you will see all sorts of persuasive propaganda to incite you to use their company; that is if you can decipher any of technical jargon that only computer-heads can comprehend. Some web hosts offer free business cards with an account; some probably offer free watches…like all consumer industries you buyer must beware.
I’m a writer so I’ll use analogy of a writer’s journal. The journal I like must not be too big or small in book size. It also must have a good amount of space allocated to each day, again not a whole page but not just a few lines. Of course I also want it to be cheap but of a good quality that won’t fall apart while I’m using it, and I hope it would last for posterity. I just want diary, some nice pictures in it are O.K. but unnecessary especially if it adds to price.
It’s same with a web host and web site scenario. You want to get right deal for you, enough space and enough access to public that you wish to associate with. As a novice who doesn’t understand all jargon this can pose a problem. Are you an individual, small business, blog, or a big time corporation? What do you need and how do you get it?
Web Hosts: Helping us navigate through this future techno-world.Written by Jesse S. Somer
Computers, Internet, Web sites…what do they all mean? Hey, you’re probably not a technophobe, I mean you own a microwave right? Just push a few buttons and food cooks itself-easy. Now, they tell you best way to share information, have a business, and generally communicate in life, are on Web. I don’t know about you but for me Web conjures up visions of a giant spider whose sole intention is to turn me into a tasty appetizer. Computers scare me. People say they’re tool of future, but I find them to be quite alien, especially compared to my lawnmower! All technical jargon associated with these machines, it’s like you have to have a university degree in Information Technology just to turn one on.
The key to solving riddle is just to go back in time. Not easy?! Think about our ancestors, prehistoric cave-dwelling hairy folk. How did they get job done each day? Tools… Tools. A man had his stone axe to kill wild beast; a woman had a basket to collect fruits and vegetables. Sounds a little sexist, but fortunately times have changed in a number of ways. In our modern society main tool has become computer and anyone can use it. In old days a boy’s father would teach them how to throw axe. These days Web Hosts exist to help people get acquainted with Internet in much same loving parental role. These companies provide knowledge and access to all fundamental ways of taking part in using space age super-tool. I’ve heard that having knowledge about something is half battle of getting a job done. Having a Web Host is like meeting your mentor, wizard who shows you simple way to navigate through this new techno-world.
