What should I pay per month for web hosting?

I would like to start a small business web site.
I have been told that I will need web hosting. Can someone explain what hosting includes and what I should expect to pay for hosting per month?

It depends, there are many hosting companies, with a wide range of product offering and prices. Depending on your traffic and your website scripting needs, you could have hosting for $3.00/month. If you would like to bump up to a hire quality, nightly or hourly backups, etc. You might pay $10 - 20/month.

Web hosting is a service that allows you to place a number of web pages in a remote server and to make them available for public use through HTTP. Besides that there are a number of specific services and/or products which a part of any web hosting service. I would suggest you to spend 30 minutes in Wikipedia reading about web hosting. It will be hard for anyone around to explain all the things related to this business.

For a simple static site, probably no more than a few dollars per month.

What hosting includes is a broad subject. It would normally include disk space, data transfer, a choice of Linux or Windows platforms, email accounts, FTP access, stats, and support, among other services.

Hosting: Inorder to make your website live on the Internet,it is required that it is hosted a web server to be accessible for the public.
Such server space is offered by web server hosting providers at some charge.

A few bucks a month for a standard site would be what you're looking at. If you're looking at running an online store such as Magento or other shopping cart, then you'll want to find a host that supports the software, and again you can probably pay as little as $5/month.

If you're processing credit cards through a 3rd party service (paypal, 2checkout, worldpay) then you're all set. If you're processing credit cards yourself through authorize.net for example, then you'll also want to have an SSL Certificate for your site.

SSL's are their own separate charge, and will cost more for hosting since you need a dedicated IP number to assign the SSL to.

Prices on this are higher, but just as random with hosts For us, we're $20+/month for dedicated IP hosting packages, but I'm sure you'll find cheaper out there.

Alot will depend if you want to be part of overselling or not. If you are looking for a cheap price and uptime / support is not big on your list I would suggest HostGator or GoDaddy. I would say $5.00 or less a month would be enough for you. I hope I've been helpful!

What you should pay per month for web hosting depends on your needs; but $1.00 per month is a fair price for a small website.

$1.00 - Paypal transaction fees = a few cent per month.

Lets be reasonable now, most of these web hosting companies who are charging $1.00 are making close to nothing.

Hi,

First of all you have to decide if you want to go for Shared hosting, VPS or Dedicated hosting according to your website requirement and then search on the net accordingly. I believe you are just going to start a website so shared hosting will be suitable for you.

For anything decent you should be paying around $30 per month. This is to ensure your business continuity, 24 x 7 assistance and DR. Remember you are running your business on this!

As less as possible; however for start a small business web site you don't need a VPS, Dedicated hosting. Better you look for a shared account.
Success.

I would say anywhere from 5 Dollars upwards. It is important to choose a company with realistic prices.

Dont go for the Price directly, i guess you should compare the services offered by your hosting provider and then you should try to calculate the price for the hosting package. If you get trap in the net of the less or free hosting it is difficult for your business to survive
