Web hosting involves setting up a website. This could include a host of other features depending on the Internet service provider. Most Internet service providers offer free web hosting space from 2 ? 10 MB. Websites also provide free hosting addresses, but they carry banner or pop-up advertisements.
Dedicated hosting is needed for big websites that have a high number of visitors. Since a separate server is provided to the client for dedicated hosting, the cost is always high. This is another reason why small or personal websites do not take advantage of dedicated hosting.
A discount is generally given to those users who purchase services in bulk or for a longer duration of time. However, new companies offer large discounts to normal buyers to create a consumer base. The price is dependent on the kind of hardware and software used. For instance, Windows OS (operating system) will always be more expensive due to its licensing fee, than Linux, which is a freeware. Also, additional services provided add to the cost. Custom programming and certain additional upgrades also increase cost.
High connectivity routes are expensive, because they use multiple quality uplinks in order to maintain a steady connection in case one connection fails. Yet a compromise on connectivity and speed should be avoided when using discounted dedicated hosting. Providers who offer dedicated hosting give a discount on additional features such as increased web space, multiple domain names and hardware or software upgrades. Special features like load balancing and firewall support are often given as a complimentary package. Offers that are based on monthly rates rather than a rate of usage are more viable. The billing cycle can be monthly or even quarterly. Longer billing cycle carries higher discounts.
