For our first Blogette (our word for a small blog!) we are looking at hosting for your Web Site. We all know, your web site is your window to the world. Its your shop front, its your showroom. But like any physical showroom or shop, it can be a costly overhead and you need to look if those costs have got carried away over time, lost in the fog or just abandoned to the ever increasing price additions.

Take a fresh look at your hosting today and you could find that it’s very possible to shave a few dollars, pounds or euros off the cost of hosting whilst actually getting a better return for your money.

Say you are an average small company and the accumulated costs of hosting come to $80 a month. That’s with your extra site security deployed, your fee for additional hosting space, your annual member ship etc. $80 a month is $960 a Year. Suppose you could halve that to just $40 a month or less. $40 isn’t a lot but it’s still nearly $500 a year (Nice weekend away!).

Our Five Web Hosts to consider (Lowest to highest starting price).

Savabl choice!

We pick GreenGeeks as the best web host for getting online, not only affordably, but with a free transfer service and plenty of concentration on the deep pollution impacts on the environment that the internet effectively contributes to, its an all out winner.
