While many business owners think just having one site is difficult to manage, there are some of you who have several web sites for a variety of online businesses (or just products and services) that you have.
As you consider domain names and web hosting for these online properties its useful to know something about the web hosting options to consider.
Bizsugar pointed me to an article at WebSite 101 that you might find useful to read. The article gives a brief overview of:
- Shared Web Hosting
- VPS Hosting
- Dedicated Web Hosting
- Managed Web Hosting
- Co-located Hosting
- Reseller Web Hosting
- Free Web Hosting
As your online properties grow it’s important that you strategically decide which option is best for you. I FOR SURE recommend that you DO NOT use “free web hosting” services. In most cases these hosting services will display advertising on your web site (that you have no or minimal control over) and your web site will not look professional.
