How To Find Cheap Web Hosting

By: Chris Channing

Cheap web hosting is on the minds of every webmaster, or aspiring entrepreneur. After all, how can one make a profit if all of their money is going towards running costs? But finding a cheap web host that offers good service for the money can be tough. Luckily, there are a few time-tested ways to find the best in web hosting, and incredible rates.

The biggest disadvantage to average cheap webhosts is the fact that they will commonly offer less disk space and bandwidth than other hosts. The trick is to find a webhost that is established enough to have extra disk space and bandwidth available. This means that the no-name hosts that don't have reputation will likely be less appealing than the mainstream hosts.

It is also possible to get huge discounts on hosting bills if one agrees to submit to certain omissions of services. One example of this is the fact the cPanel, a popular webmaster management software, will charge licensing fees to hosts. Many hosts will charge webmasters with a portion of the costs so they don't have to pay it. But some hosts will allow users to use free web administration panels, and thus enjoy lower costs.

It isn't always about how much one saves, but rather how much they obtain by purchasing a larger hosting plan. While one may get a cheaper deal on a small plan, they will usually pay more per megabyte of disk space and bandwidth than those who opted for the larger plans. It may cost more, but for those who have popular websites, it's the better deal.

Making a commitment to a webhost is also a great way to enjoy vast savings. Some webhosts will offer a yearly plan that is heavily discounted- but the drawback is that the webmaster is paying for a full year of service. If the funds permit, this is a very good idea since the price will commonly be discounted to the point where there will be a few free months of service.

Cheap webhosts can also be obtained through other types of efforts, although it'll take more time and patience. The first way is to simply place ads on one's website that link back to the webhost. This will require an "under the table" deal with the webhost, who will agree to offer a discount in exchange for the links. Other things, such as forum posting, referring sales, or even completing offers can help reduce a payment each month.

In Conclusion

Cheap web hosting isn't hard to find- one just needs to search for it! One can always find huge discounts from buying in bulk or by committing to certain length of service agreements. If cheaper routes are necessary, it is usually best to go with established webhosts. Also never hesitate to make use of free storage websites for images and files, as they can save a heap of money in bandwidth and disk space costs in the long run!
