Web hosting is where you store your files in a remote server, and the files are transferred to your site visitor when they visit your site. It is important to note that choosing a good and reputable hosting company is important for the long term.
Things to be wary about when choosing a Web Hosting Company (Beginner Version):
Managed or Unmanaged Support
If you are new to hosting, it is always recommended that you get a managed hosting as a start. Managed hosting means that the company which you bought your hosting package from will provide assistance in terms of technical support for hosting related issues. Most of the companies have 24/7 support so you don’t have to look for other web developers when it comes to hosting issues. For unmanaged hosting, you have to set up the network yourself, either manually or with the help of control panels. This is only recommended when you have a good grasp of how hosting works as you might meet a lot of issues but can only rely on the community for help.
Control panel is a simplified dashboard for server management. This allows server management without needing to use any codes. You can add/remove domains, manage server emails, create multiple websites using the control panel. When you are using managed hosting, they would’ve come with a control panel for easy management. However, if you are using an unmanaged hosting, you might have to get a license for each server. The few famous control panel are cPanel, Plesk and Cloudways.
Number of Domains / Website
For a shared server, most of the package will have a limitation to how many domains or websites you can use with the package. This is the hosting company’s way to control bandwidth, so that is shared amongst the different people sharing the same server. The cheapest package would normally allow just 1 website. So if you have a new website, it is recommended that you start from there.
