When you are fully ready to open your own website, or your very own blog, to host your photos, apps and writings, it is time for you to approach the right Web Hosting company. A good web hosting company hosts your website for you and provides you with all the storage, tools and bandwidth required by you. And what’s more, has excellent technical support teams who help you out whenever there are problems with the running of your website. So, here are the top 6 web hosting companies 2016 to consider when it is time to get your website live.
Dreamhost is a popular web host that provides a standard shared plan for as little as $8.95 per month, making it affordable for most individual website owners with limited needs. For those with a much greater requirement for bandwidth and storage, Dreamhost has dedicated servers that provide them exactly that, but at a higher price. Higher plans in Dreamhost get you an unlimited number of email accounts, Google apps, databases and so on. The company also provides freebies and perks regularly for its customers.
Hostgator is an incredibly attractive web hosting service that provides you unbelievable freebies for a basic plan of just $ 3.95 per month, such as, limitless disk space and bandwidth, a guaranteed uptime provided and templates that are very simple to install. It gets better with bigger plans, as unlimited email accounts are offered and as much as $100 in Google AdWords credits given – making this easily one of the most popular web hosting company.
Bluehost is another highly affordable web hosting service, very similar to GoDaddy that provides very cheap basic web hosting plans starting at $ 4.95 per month. For this basic plan, BlueHost provides unlimited disk space and bandwidth, as well as domain names, 1-click hosting and helps you with the building of a WordPress blog, with very easy guidelines.
Linode is a different kind of a web hosting service as it provides a Virtual Private Server or VPS hosting. Linode provides all your bandwidth and your disk space on a virtual server. This is a new technology in web hosting, but certainly one which shows tremendous potential.
GoDaddy is one of the most popular web hosting companies worldwide for individuals and small businesses, and should be your first choice if your budget is limited. The monthly fee at GoDaddy is an extremely low $ 4.99 per month and there are no charges at all for the setup. GoDaddy provides you with 10 GB space and a bandwidth of 300 GB – which is fine. Plus, GoDaddy provides tools such as PHP hosting, ColdFusion, as many as 100 email accounts, and 10 MySQL databases, making it a really affordable service that provides for most of your needs if you are an individual or a small business owner who does not require the most complex or sophisticated web hosting.
iPage is by far the world’s cheapest web hosting service. The basic iPage plan starts at $1.99/month, which is amazing – this is as cheap as it gets. And for $1.99/month, you get a 99.9% server uptime (which is impressive), unlimited hosting, free domain name, a 24/7 support, webmail and much more. We are such big fans of iPage because it costs 75% to 450% less than most of the other web hosting services in the market. Can’t ask for more
