Cheap Web Hosting is No Bargain!

Ever heard the saying "Penny-wise and Dollar-foolish"?

Well bargain priced website hosting may just represent the
perfect example of watching a jar full of pennies while bucket
loads of dollars fly out the window!

When I launched my first website (way back in the "dark ages"
of 1997) I paid almost $150 a month in hosting and data
transfer charges. My web host watched how many files I
uploaded like a hawk and always seemed to send their hefty
invoices earlier with each passing month.

I'm obviously not the only one who felt that way, because
suddenly a whole industry of "bargain" web hosts sprang up all
over the web.

On the surface they all sound great, especially when you think
you can go from $150 a month down to $4.95 a month!

Five bucks a month sounds great, until you realize the amount
of data transfer (number of page views) and bandwidth (the
amount of data transfer your host allows in a given period)
you get for that low price potentially hampers your ability to
do business.

This realization - along with a panic attack and a quick
lesson in calculating data transfer and bandwidth - usually
comes at the least convenient time.

When you exceed your limits, a bargain host usually just shuts
you down with no warning. Most webmasters realize they've made
a mistake choosing a bargain host when their site suddenly
loads a blank page in the middle of a big promotion traffic

Believe me, everything just stops!

Here are a few bargain hosts that provide good service, but
you need to carefully check the fine print for how much
bandwidth they allow. For about $24.95 a month you get to host
up to six independent websites with a single account. You get
unlimited data storage, unlimited email and a variety of other
higher end services, but their bandwidth policy seems hard to

They did shut me down when we had a moderate level of success
even though I paid them an extra $300 to get what they called
"maximum" bandwidth. I was NOT pleased and promptly moved the
site ( to another host. Host Save is another low price hosting
company that delivers a wide range of services for only $6.95
per month. They recently raised their allowable data transfer,
but their policy on how much bandwidth you can use at a given
time seems non-existent. For $25 DotEasy offers a domain name purchase
along with one year's hosting. Sounds incredible until you
read the fine print to discover they limit you to 1 Gigabyte
of data transfer a month. Not much data once you start getting
reasonable site traffic.

The moral here?

Either prepare to have your business shut down mid-stream if
you get successful, or pay a few extra bucks each month to
ensure you have enough bandwidth and data transfer to operate
without any service interruptions.

At a minimumArticle Submission, specifically ask about and read the fine print
regarding the host's policies before it's too late!
