Hosting Your Website

Having registered your domain name (as we saw in my earlier post), it's necessary to think about where to host it.

Hosting, in layperson's terms, means where your website will “live”.

My first reaction to hosting was – “Well, I have a PC, it can live on that!”

NO!! Your PC wouldn't be nearly powerful enough to host a website that catered for any serious volume of customers – and you probably wouldn't want to keep your PC on day and night in case someone wanted to browse for your service in the middle of the night, or from a different country if appropriate.

Choosing a web-host is not a decision to be taken lightly. Contact Us to discuss your needs, because that's the only way we can make the right decision.

The service I use myself (after many false starts) is recommended at the right-hand side.

But if you (think you) can't afford that, I have other options. And I'd be happy to discuss with you why I pay for the quality service I am now using.

    Sweet blog! I found it while surfing around on Yahoo News.
    Do you have any tips on how to get listed in Yahoo News?
    I’ve been trying for a while but I never seem to get there!
    Thank you

      I’m (pleasantly) surprised to have been found on Yahoo news, as it’s not something I’ve used much. Which means I’m afraid I can’t help.

      Perhaps some of the other commenters on my blogs can help. Joy
