Cost being a main factor you have to make your dollars stretch as far as they can.
Your first expense will be purchasing domains and then finding hosting for your websites.
With so many web hosting providers to chose from it can be a time consuming task as well as confusing to find the one that best fits your needs.
Prices will vary from each of the hosting services but you will find that shared hosting companies will offer the lowest prices.
Many will offer cheap multiple domain hosting along with additional services they provide.
I know maintaining a tight budget will be a determining factor on many choices you make in building your businesses online.
Let me suggest that along with multiple domains that you consider a few more factors when choosing a host for your sites.
- You will want a service that has been in business for many years.
This is what many consider to be a Reliability factor.
- You will need the web host to have a Guarantee for Up Time.
This is very important to your web sites because if they are down you will lose costumers and they may never come back to your site.
- Not to be overlooked is the need of finding a web hosting company's Ease of Use factor.
If you are new to the internet and starting a business, as many are, you will want to choose a host that has CPanel.
This is where you will have access to all of your controls.
It is laid out with very easy to understand icons and also importantly they will provide tutorials to show you how to use each feature.
- Probably one of the most important factors to consider before you make your purchase is Live Customer Service.
The reason being is that having a live person available to talk to 24/7 when you have a problem will save you from a lot of frustration.
There are many hosting companies that only offer email for help and I have read where people waited for days to get a response.
This is not what you want from your provider.
