When you have your brand and domain name sorted you will need somewhere to host your website.
What is Hosting
Hosting, or web hosting can be defined as a service that is provided by a vendor, which can either be a company or individual. This service offers a physical location (a server – which is basically a computer) to store the information from your website. Web hosting companies rent space on their computer servers . Individual servers can hold information for hundreds of websites. Speed, uptime reliability, security and software updates are critical factors in choosing a website host.

Small Business Website Hosting
If you have a small business, or similar activity your website is probably no more than 50 pages. You’re going to want shared hosting. Unless you have a website that’s getting many thousands of hits a month or you are using a hosting a lot of video (not just 1 or 2 videos, we’re talking dozens or more), there’s no sense in getting anything else.
You share a server with thousands of other websites. They’re all stored on the same computer as yours. There are different levels of packages that you can buy, but the standard packages for most decent hosting providers comes with one flat payment per year (or per month – however you set it up) and you can host unlimited domains and you get unlimited bandwidth and storage. Small business websites or just small websites, in general, will only ever need shared hosting. Shared hosting can be slow. and on rare occasions, if there is some rogue or spammy sites on that same server, it has the potential to effect things with search engines. This is pretty rare.
Cloud hosting is a relatively new concept. It does not operate on a single server system. Instead, it involves many layers of servers, which makes it really secure and reliable. This is the most scalable type of hosting because you, pay for exactly what you use. It’s good for start-up websites that are planning on upcoming traffic spikes. Cloud hosting is very fast and secure and completely scalable. It can be much more expensive than shared hosting.
