With so many web hosts in the marketplace choosing one is very very tricky. I have now worked in the web hosting industry for going on 10 years. I won't recommend a particular cheap VPS hosting company for obvious reasons however I will recommend a few things:
Collecting cheap dedicated servers and vps hosting promo codes and coupons, as well as the vps hosting reviews and tutorials!
Speak to your friends and family and see who they use and who they get a good service from
- Once you have narrowed down your search a little, test the potential hosts support. Ring or email at funny times of the day (and night) and see what response you get.
- Look at the resources that you actually need. It is all well and good going with one web host because they offer twice the amount of resources but if your site only need 500MB whether they give you 10GB of diskspace or 20GB is not massively relevant.
- As Linda says look at a company that can easily transition you between shared and dedicated platforms with no downtime (it is possible)
- Be wary of hosting review websites, many are simply setup to make their owners cash via the various hosting companies affiliate schemes.
Buying a domain is relatively simple -although finding a hosting provider isn’t.
I assuming that if your wanting to buy a domain name, you probably want to have a website as well (preferably wordpress). I have looked all around the internet for affordable, yet quality hosting services. and the best one that I found was Bluehost.
Bluehost is affordable, yet they have many features that other domain hosting providers can’t offer, in fact its is what I use to host my own website.
- They offer wordpress integration; which is huge.
- There customer service is like none other, most of the time they fix the problem themselves rather than just giving you instructions.
- Plus there service is only 7.95 per month
But if you got the Namesilo Coupon Code , they can offer you more advice on what domain to get and if maybe another domain services is right for you.
They also offer deep discounts for the Bluehost service. Click here to get 50% off the Bluehost domain hosting services.
If you want to build a website, a domain name is useful. It isn’t necessary, but which would you rather remember, 123.484.293.38 or quora.com? And when you want to do a web search, would you rather type in 64.382.283.1 or google.com. Not think of all the websites you might visit on a daily basis.
