Is Cheap Web Hosting Good For Your Business And What Are Their Pitfalls If Any?
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

In this discussion I want us to be as sincere and down to earth as possible because when you come to the issue of anything cheap there are many connotations to it. What do we really mean by cheap web hosting? Does it mean that there is a type of web hosting that is produced with cheaper materials than others, or is it that their web hosting services are inferior?

The truth is that most of the services offered by the web hosting companies are virtually the same. I have discovered from my over ten years in this industry that at most times we were over charged for a web hosting service that should have cost us a few dollars a year.

Let us take domain name registration for example, is there a different domain name service for different web hosting and domain registration companies? I don’t think so, but some charge as must as $20.00 dollars for the same registration that others charge below $10.00, so what is the cause? The only difference as I have discovered is that some have high overheads while some have little or no overheads at all.

One of the problems I have come to discover from companies that render cheap web hosting service is that they have very poor after sales customer support because of the cost involved in maintaining such service. Then if you are involved in a very serious business I don’t think that you should go for cheap or free web hosting service. But if you are just starting out and are basically testing the waters at a level where majority of internet marketers give up, I suggest that you start with the cheap web hosting companies but surely not the free ones. I will discuss free web hosting services and the companies offering them in my next article.

One of the important things I will like you to know today about web hosting service is that the cost of web hosting should not constitute a major part of your business costs are web hosting has actually come to a level that no matter your level in the internet marketing industry you should be able to afford good and functional web hosting service, but technical support is what may vary from company to company depending on their size and commitment.

I have an experience with a cheap web hosting company; in fact I also bought a domain name from them for that service. The mistake I made which I have come to realize now was that I was using the company when I was just starting out in the business but when I became relatively big in hosting web sites for clients I hosted a mortgage bank with them, I discovered that they were always having problem with either the mail system today or the bandwidth tomorrow or one thing the next.

Therefore, I suggest that you only use the cheap ones for small projects but when you start to join the big leagues pay a little more so that you can have good customer support and more added services with your conventional web hosting service.
