“Measured in time of transport and communication, the whole round globe is now smaller than a small European country was a hundred years ago.”
John Boyd Orr

Now you’re ready to choose a web hosting plan. There are literally hundreds of hosting companies to choose from, and pricing is very competitive. Plans commonly cost as little as $10 per month, but it’s absolutely true that you get what you pay for. Just be sure to balance price with the feature set you require. And insist on 24/7 technical support. Once you begin to count on your website for business operations, you can’t afford downtime!

Depending on what you need to do with your website, AcuteVisibility|BMO will help you to identify the right hosting company and plan that will grow with you as your demands increase.

Some of the things you’ll want to think about when choosing your Web Hosting Plan:

How many pages do you expect your website to need? Do you want to have it constructed in a Content Management System? A CMS allows you to have extensive editorial and content control of your site, so you can make changes quickly and easily.

Do you want to have a Blog or Forum on your site?

Do you need a Shopping Cart feature so you can sell directly from your site?

Do you have a technical person on your team who can administer some of the back end functionality of your site? If not, you will want to ensure that your hosting plan includes technical support, even if you have to pay extra for it.

How much bandwidth do you think you’ll need? This refers to the amount of data that you will be uploading to and from your site.

How many email accounts do you require? If you only have a few employees, this may not be an issue. But if you have an extended team that will eventually need email addresses ending in @yourcompany.com, make sure the plan offers sufficient email addresses.

What is the technical support availability with the prospective hoster? “24/7/365” (24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year!) is the reigning industry standard. And where is their support team? Is it in Romania? India? Or Terre Haute, Indiana? This may not be a large factor, but it may bear some consideration.

AVbmo will gladly walk you through this process, or take care of it for you so you don’t have to give it another thought. Consider it done!
