Multiple Site Hosting
Stop Paying More Than What's Necessary
by Brian Thorn
If you are looking for multiple site hosting in a web host package, you have plenty of options. There are literally dozens of web hosting companies that advertise multiple site hosting options. But what can you expect from these companies and what is it likely to cost? The cost will vary greatly, but there are lots of web hosts that advertise a web hosting package for less than $10 per month. What to expect from a web host depends largely on the host. Services, like price, will vary. Your specific needs will determine what you should expect from a web host service.
If one of your important requirements is multiple site hosting in a web host package, you should first determine exactly what you expect the company to provide. It's probably a fairly simple matter to have a single company sell you a web host package for each of the websites you plan to maintain. In some cases, you might find that a company offers discounts for having more than one website package.
In some cases, finding a company that can offer multiple site hosting in a web host package means that you want to maintain several websites on a single account. Some companies offer to provide that service at no additional charge. Others have a "per website" rate and will charge extra for each website maintained. You might want to look for a web host package that offers a specific amount of space for a specific price, and that price remains fixed for that amount of space even if multiple websites are established within the set criteria.
If you are looking for a web host package for a company, remember that the current needs of that company could be different from future needs. As you search for multiple site hosting in a web package, keep in mind that your business might expand. If your multiple site hosting package proves to be too small, will this particular company be able to meet expanded needs? If you are purchasing a web host package and expect to use all the space immediately, you could be faced with the dilemma of finding a new web host service provider very soon.
Whether you're looking for a company to host multiple sites or plan to establish only a single site, remember that comparison shopping is your best chance of finding the service you need at a competitive price. Even for multiple site hosting in a web package, look at total disk space, security, number of e-mail accounts and bandwidth before making a decision. If you find a company that has multiple site hosting in a single web host package, find out if a specific amount of space will be allotted to each website, or if a total amount is promised with you being allowed to use it as you please. For example, you might have one large site and two smaller sites, with the three easily accommodated by the total space allotted. However, if your service provider divides the space and allows only 10 megabytes for each website, you might find that the larger site is too big for the space provided.
