Web Hosting

Finding a reliable web host for your online venture is as important as having a reliable place to live. If you currently have a web site or are planning one, you will find yourself looking for a reliable web host to present your content on the Internet. If you are simply creating a hobby site, that is a site on something of interest, you will have different requirements compared to say a website geared towards e-commerce with the intent of making profits.

In the former (hobby site) one might be content with a cheaper web host or even a free host with limited functionality. An e-commerce or profit capable website might require a slightly different approach when selecting hosts. Today there are literally thousands of web hosts. Many are 'resellers' leasing servers at major data centers and providing services based on shared, virtual, and dedicated basis.
