What Is A Website Hosting – A Great Start To Having Your Own Home Business

Updated 21st September 2019

Creating A Website – Hosting Service For Your Website


After reading number six of my series on creating an online business, I hope you found it informative and you are ready for number seven.  This will be about choosing an Internet Hosting service for your website and domain names.  Now remember it doesn’t matter if you have created a website for a home business or one that you need for work from home jobs.  You need to have that website hosted on the internet for you.


So what is a website host? Well that is where your finished web pages will reside so that when someone types in www.yourwebsite.com they will actually see your web page displayed on their screen. They will actually be pulling the web page up from your Host.  This is the company that will store a copy of your website and pages on their servers. When you acquire the name for your website it will more than likely be through them.


How To Buy Domain Name

Let’s take a minute on website names.  Its always best to buy a domain name, and I strongly recommend that it be a name that coincides with the type of product or service your visitor is looking for. Why?  Because it reaffirms them that they have landed on the right site for what they need. I hope that makes sense. Feel free to take a look at this one of mine as an example of what I’m talking about.  Its all about earning an income from the internet from home.  Get the idea?


Best Domain Hosting Service

Now back to the Hosts. What do you want in a host? Well here a few things I used to look for:


  • Good track record with current users in regards to uptime


  • Reasonable pricing for the amount of bandwidth you get (min 100GB)


  • 24/7, 365 days support


  • Step-by-step guidance if required


  • The ability to put a blog on your site is a plus


  • FREE domain name included with them doing all the setup work


  • Ability to have more than one email address


  • A wide selection of themes to choose from is another plus


You can also read some web hosting reviews and see what other people are recommending, but I think if you find the above items in a host you are off to a good start.


The cost per year is usually pretty reasonable and under $20 for a year. My host is currently offering this service for only $13 a year for your own Dot Coms. There are good deals to be found folks, so look around. The most important thing that a hosting company should be offering you is practically no down time. You need your page to load fast when a customer wants to visit, so always look for the best high speed internet providers.


This is an important step to your success, because if people can’t get to your site and get there quickly you are not going to make any money. You don’t have to spend a lot of money, but you do not want to go with the cheapest host you can find. If your site comes up quickly, presents itself well and takes your potential customer to exactly what they are looking for you will have a much higher chance for success.

I did mention the company I’m with offers a pretty good deal on Hosting.  Well I didn’t tell you all that it offers.

  1. Thank you for explaining it so simple! A friend of mine was telling me that she has no idea about these things (I am also learning them step by step) and this was somehow stopping her to take the next step and start to really explore the possibilities that internet offers nowadays. I will send her the link to your article: one more proof that there is nothing to be afraid off and, indeed, there are really good offers (when you look for them).

    1. Hello Ina and thank you for taking the time to read my article on Hosting.

      Hope you read some of the other articles in the series as well as they are all relevant to creating and making money from an internet business you can run from home.

      Perhaps your friend will find the information useful as well if she is giving some serious thought to starting a home business.

      Its always best to start and take something new step by step.

      You must fully understand one step before moving on to the next.

      This is simply because if you are new to it and something you have absolutely no previous experience of then you are sure to make mistakes.

      Of course being new to it you will not realize you are making mistakes and could mess up big time.

      I always advise my readers to join an online company such as the one I’m a member of where they will get that Step by Step training.  Being online they can keep going back to the lessons as many times as they want to until they fully understand what’s required before moving on to the next step.

      By the end of a lesson they will be able to continue through a course or training and get it right but what’s more to the point, get it right first time so they don’t have to go over it again.

      So my advice to you Ina and your friend that slow but sure wins the race  –  remember the story about the tortoise and the hare.

      There are of course lots and lots of programs out there that will promise you will get rich overnight.

      Do NOT believe all that you read and look around until you have found one that you have heard great things about.

      If you or your friend are looking for such a program then look for reviews on Wealthy Affiliate.  I think you will have a hard time to find a bad one.

      That is my recommendation and follow it if you want to but no worries if you don’t.

      I just don’t want you or your friend throwing your money away on a piece of crap when you can get great training and lessons with WA and for free.

      To your eventual success Ina if you want to earn an income from the internet.

      Have the most fantastic day wherever you are in the world.

      Warmest Regards.

  2. Hi, Robert. Thanks for the post on website hosting. You provide good information.
    For the beginner who wants to get started online, do you think that they should start with just one website or more than one? I guess my question is, do you need a separate website for each subject you are pursuing online or can it all go in one site? Maybe that depends on how you set the site up.
    Anyway, thanks again and thanks in advance for your input. Take care.

    1. Hello Grant

      Glad you found the information in my article helpful.

      For people who have no previous experience of working from home with a business or even work from home jobs then I would advise them to stick to creating one website.

      In fact I would advise them to join a company such as the one I’m with and create a Test Website to practice on.

      Once they have gained some experience and knowledge then it would be safe to take it a step further and try for an actual website they want to make money from.

      As I say in my article this company gives free members twenty five websites so plenty of scope for getting it right.

      The company also gives free hosting and domain names, so again plenty of room there to get a good website up and running.

      Saying all the above your second question should be answered yes.

      Start with one website with one product or service you can promote on it.

      You don’t want to be confused and you certainly don’t want your site visitors to be confused with a lot of different products and or service advertised on the one site.

      You create and build out a site with just one product or service.

      You learn as much as you can about it.

      You become knowledgeable so you can write with some authority.

      People will then become to trust your opinion and keep coming back for more information.

      Making an income from the internet will not happen overnight Grant.

      It takes time to build out a website.

      It takes time to gain the trust that you need in order to achieve success.

      It can be done, I and another million members of the company I’m with can vouch for that.

      perhaps you should think about joining our happy community.

      If you do then you will get all the help and support you will need to achieve that success.

      Thank you again for reading my article and please come again.

      Have a great day.

  3. Robert,
    Been looking to start an online business and you helped me with a clear understanding of having the right host.
    I just haven’t decided on what my site should be about or a niche I think.
    I have to give that some thought but I think I have found the right place to sign up when done.
    Thanks for taking the time to present that information in a way I can understand. I will be back.

    1. Hello Doug and thank you for reading my article on Website Hosting.

      Its good to know from comments such as yours that I am indeed giving the information that people are seeking.

      For most people who want to earn an income at home from the internet deciding on a Niche seems to be their major obstacle.

      This is simply because they believe they don’t know enough about anything in particular.

      I don’t know who you are, where you live or what work previous experience or knowledge you have but you must have something you are interested in.

      Something that you like or even have a passion for.

      This could be a hobby or a lifetime interest but you do know a lot about it.

      Make this your starting point, your Niche.

      Once you have the beginnings of a website you can then start to think about what products or services you could promote that are relevant to that Niche.

      You then join affiliate programs and choose from whatever is available and when you send people to the merchant or vendors site and they get sales you get a commission.

      Pretty easy money when you think about it.

      You say you have found the right place to sign up so I hope you have chosen wisely.

      Perhaps it was Wealthy Affiliate and if it was then be sure to look me up and I will always be happy to point you in the right direction.

      To your eventual success Doug and yes please visit again and I’m sure you will go away with even more tips and advice that will help you achieve your dream of making money from the internet.

      Sincere Regards.

  4. I found your explanation very clear and to the point. It’s very simple to understand. It would be ideal for any beginner to grasp the concepts and understanding of why it’s important to have the right hosting company supporting your online business.

    I took a look at the translation for Malay, since I’m in Malaysia ( I got my wife to have a look at it). Her feedback is that the general meaning is clear but the way Google translate works, it doesn’t get the grammar quite right.

    I will come back to the site to look at more of your articles.

    Good job 🙂

    1. Hello Abdulsalam Grren

      Thank you for reading my article and yes be sure to return and browse the other articles in the series.  I am aiming for ten altogether.  Hopefully they will cover enough aspects of marketing online from home that will enable even the complete novice to grasp the principles.

      I do try to make my explanations as clear and concise as I can because a lot of my readers will be Newbies.

      Its a bit like going into a particular classroom for the first time.

      You learn as you go along but the initial lessons should at the very least cover the basics and I believe I am doing that with this series.

      Not all translation functions are 100 percent at translating the content of anything on the internet.

      This is simply because other languages have their own consonants and vowels that do not absolutely translate from English.

      Of course there atre other differences but at least Google gets it right most of the time.

      Other marketers I know have their content on their own language and when its translated into English some parts don’t seem to make sense either.

      But if readers get the gist of whats been said then that’s as much as we can hope for until a better translation system comes along.

      Hope you went away with a tip or two and the advice within the article will benefit you and anyone else who does want to create a website for a home business.

      If this is you then I wish you success.

      have a great Monday.


      Robert Allan
