If you’ve already picked your website name and registered a domain, it’s time to get your own piece of real estate on the Internet. Somewhere that you can hang your virtual hat and put up your virtual feet. You’re going to need web hosting!
What is Web Hosting?
Web hosting is basically some space on a hard drive, in a server that is setup so that it can be accessed through the internet. You could even install some web hosting software on your computer and set up a web host of your own, but chances are that your internet plan doesn’t allow the connections needed for this to work. So what we’re looking for is a good, reliable, CHEAP place to get web hosting for our new website.
Where can I get some Good, Reliable, CHEAP Web Hosting?
As you might imagine, web hosting is big business, and there WAY too many choices out there right now. That’s why I’m just going to recommend the hosting company that I’ve used for years. These guys have all of the qualities you need in a web host, including unlimited space, great support and if you play your cards right, you can get it for as little as $2.95/mo. So let me save you the trouble, you can’t go wrong with Cirtex web hosting.
What Package do I Need
No matter where you’re starting from, you can get by with their most basic package to start. I’d recommend starting there, and upgrading if you ever feel the need to. With this package you can store unlimited amounts of data, have unlimited traffic, set up your own emails, host up to 7 different websites, perform easy installs of WordPress (which we’ll need later) and other web site software and even take advantage of their advanced video features. Here’s how to do it:
