Welcome to Host My Inter.net, here you will find everything you need to get your very own website on the Internet.
There are several options available to you and I will cover the most popular ones here, these choices do depend on what you want for your online presence, if you are a business or want to start one then using paid services for your online business presence is by far the only way to proceed because it gives you total control over your business and will ensure your website is always available to your customers,
If you are a hobbyist and just want a web presence to communicate with friend and family then one of the free options would most likely fit your requirements unless of course you want to ensure your website remains online permanently, so here I’ll start with the paid options.
Firstly to get your own website online you will need a domain name and some website hosting, the domain name will give your new website an address, this is the link needed to find where your website is hosted on the world wide web and will looks like this: www.yourchosendomainname and then usually ends in .com , .net , .info , .org , .biz , .tv , .ws , etc.
Although most all of the hosting providers online can also supply you with a domain name registration service, I personally would advise you to use a separate registrar as this will save you from experiencing huge problems later on should you ever need to change to another hosting company for any reason.
A good registrar to go to is NameCheap as you can register a .com domain name for under $11 per year, they’re not the cheapest around but they make up for that with their service which is second to none, to visit there website click Here
Another good alternative is GoDaddy who’s regular prices are slightly higher than NameCheap on .com domain registrations, but they do have “Specials” on most times so well worth looking at, to visit there website click Here
Once you have your domain name it’s time to get some webspace to house your website and the following companies can supply you with various hosting packages to suite most any needs.
If you intend to just put up just a small text only site then their starter packages will be ideal, if your intend to have a vast site including big files like audio and video, then the packages with larger storage space will be your better bet.
The different hosting suppliers listed below will again open in a new window so you can take a look at each one in turn to compare their various packages for suitability to your needs and budget.
I use this company exclusively myself because their packages include unlimited diskspace and bandwidth, those terms might be new to you so I’ll just say that all of there packages have no restrictions on how big you site gets or how many people visit your site.
I myself have their “Baby” package which when paid monthly works out at $9.95 per month, if you also decide to opt for that same package, when you get to the check-out enter PlugInMarketing into the “Coupon Code” box before making payment and you will get your first month of hosting for $0.01
Other very good hosting companies include :-
Once you have just the right hosting package for your needs, the next task is to build your website and this usually isn’t the easiest task if you’re starting out completely from scratch, so your best bet is to use a website template.
These come in all shapes and sizes, some can be very basic designed specifically for a single task while others can be very complex but cover a vast array of additional features, I would say that a basic website can be very restrictive so the better alternative is a website script that has multiple options where you can start out with just a few pages but with the option to be able to add to it over time.
For this I recommend The Plug in Marketing Super Easy Website Script, because once installed you will have a website with all of the basic behind the scenes requirements but with a super simple “User Interface” making it very easy to manage, out of the box it’s set-up as an eCommerce site for business users (hence the name) but these elements can simply be turned off if not required, you can download it completely free of charge Here
These services and the website script will get you online relatively quickly, to view my free services recommendations simply click on the link for that page from the site menu at the top this page, I will mention that I recommend you use these services if you are a hobbyist and also as additional promotional resources for you main site if you are a business owner.
See you there
