There are a few steps involved in getting a website on the Internet before it can be picked up by a search engine or web directory. The first step is securing the website address.

This decision can be extremely important, because if you choose a web address that people cannot easily find then that will hamper your quest for large amounts of web traffic. You can purchase your web address from any one of a number of Internet address sales organizations, but once you have your website address you need a place to put your website. That is where a web hosting service comes in.

In many cases a web hosting service can be the same company you purchase your website address from, and many hosting services offer competitive pricing packages that give you a discount if you purchase the web address and hosting services from the same company.

Your web address is the address that the Internet uses to find your web content, wherever your website is hosted is where the Internet will take people when they put your website address into the address bar on their browser. If you have no host then an error will come up. The hosting service is where the Internet will send people looking for your website, and the hosting service is the one that gets your content on the Internet.

There are a range of popular shared web hosting companies to choose from that will cost you less than ten dollars per month. One of the more popular providers is HostGator.com. Visit their official website here. If you are still undecided you can read a review on HostGator here.


Just as the name says, companies which offer web hosting services deal with maintaining the web addresses that somebody has previously purchased. Having the proper web hosting service will make your site more known and available on the Internet by providing a place on one of the company`s servers. Moreover, along with these web hosting services, these companies also offer other services as well as a considerable discount or offers for clients which subscribe to more than one. According to the type of website that you owe, the web hosting services can be both expensive and also free. For instance, those owners who have a personal website or blog are often offered free web hosting or at a very low price.

Most of the companies that provide web hosting services assure their customers that the servers are very reliable and if it happens for them to be down once it a while, they won`t be unavailable for more than an hour per month. Again, this may vary according to the company and their pricings. To sum up, the companies offer the following services of web hosting: free, shared, managed, dedicated and others. In order to find out which provider suits you the most, you can search on this web directory, jasminedirectory.com and see from a list of displayed sites.

The Internet is quickly becoming a customer service based media outlet, so you will find that many web hosting services are more than ready and willing to help you get your website up and going on their hosting service. Some pricing schedules from these various companies can be confusing, but if you do not understand something you just need to call them and ask.

You will find that the reputable hosting companies answer all questions professionally and over the phone, if the company you are considering does not offer that level of service then consider a different hosting company.
