Hosting

Hosting is required for a website to be accessible to the world. There are many, many hosting companies on our planet… some ranging from $5 per month to $500 per month and more. Typically, the more traffic your website receives, the beefier the hosting requirements will be. Small mom and pop websites can generally get away with affordable, low cost web hosting accounts while big monster ass websites such as Amazon maintain massive data centers which house thousands and thousands of web servers. When it comes to hosting, the choices can be overwhelming. It pays to have a professional web developer assist you with finding the right hosting for your needs.
