There is a big difference between the web requirements of a small- to mid-sized web-based business’ hosting needs (even if it is a full-scale e-commerce site) and an established large- or enterprise-sized business moving to the Web with a huge catalog of products and heavy traffic.

Whichever category you fall into, shop around for your web-hosting service provider and thoroughly check references. Learn to differentiate between a pitch and a promise.

The first step in this process is to ask yourself what do you want from a web-hosting service. Then determine your website’s needs.

The Small- to Mid-size Website

It is important that strict attention be paid to how your hosting service and your web-based business will work together, including how your chosen hosting service can compliment your web-based business.

Shopping for the right web-hosting service for your web-based business is a difficult task at best.
Look for a web-hosting service that offers a basic hosting package that includes:

• Unlimited data transfer.

• At least 15 MB of space (if email, log files and system programs are included in the amount of MB offered).

• The option of FrontPage extensions, since so many websites are designed with FrontPage.

Numerous hosting services offer small business-specific hosting services. To help you in the task, make a list similar to the one depicted in ,Use the list to start your comparisons of web-hosts

Switching hosting services after your website is up and running is a headache. You can often avoid this pain by selecting, from the get-go, a hosting service that provides a full range of hosting packages — some of which you need now, and others that you will need in the future.

You will find in almost every hosting package a set number of email mailboxes, a predefined amount of server space for your files, and a traffic allowance (the number of megabytes downloaded when customers request one of your web pages).

As with everything else, the more email boxes, file space, etc. you want, the more you pay. Unless your website is very well established and image-driven with, for example, a large product catalog, you can start with the one of the less expensive plans offered by your chosen web-hosting services.

Many web-hosting services also offer web design packages; but be advised that most of these packages leave a lot to be desired. If you do decide to use your hosting services’ web design services, subject their in-house design team to the same scrutiny as you would a web design firm or a consultant.

If you design your website yourself using your hosting service’s web design solutions, scrutinize the proffered web design tools carefully before moving forward.

Most of the time they are inadequate. Your best bet is to buy and to use your own design software.

For most small- to mid-size web-based businesses, contracting with a full-service web-hosting service makes the best sense.

Paying a relatively small monthly fee to a service to host your website on its servers, which are maintained by its technical people, and connected to the Internet via its pipe, allows you to ameliorate hardware costs and avoid hiring expensive technical staff.
