The essential web hosting requirements are aspects such as bandwidth and space management. Some more complicated features such as database management and scripting might need to be considered too.
When you are deciding upon hosting provider one of the key areas to assess is disk or web space. In the case of hosting providers, space refers to how much information can fit on the disk that is given to the customer by the web host. While the usual market trend is web space provisions in the range of 50 MB to 1000 MB, it could be different depending on the requirements and budget of the client.
The amount of space you will need will vary greatly depending upon your website. These days the majority of websites are made up of flash animations and HTML texts. Text takes up hardly no space at all, however the graphics will take up far more space and therefor be more expensive. One small image will take around 1MB of space, whereas if you had 5 pages of text you would only take up 50Kb.
People who own websites will be best served by merging what features they need with how much money they want to spend. A webmaster must consider both his own needs and the needs of his consumers as they visit his site.
The fundamental goal of website advertising is to get more people to the site, which results in more money. If visitors cannot download the site’s content quickly, they will not stay, and revenues will go down. A 30 KB webpage should only take 4 seconds to download, even when using a dial-up service, so this is the perfect size for web hosting. I would suggest that you should purchase a slightly larger package in order to provide additional space for when your business and website expand.
