Tired of the 9-5 grind, answering to a boss who knows less than you do, and never getting to spend time with friends and family? Did you decide it’s time to work for yourself? Not everyone may think this is possible, but in today’s world, it’s easier than ever to do.

In order to have a successful business, your products/services need to be solving a problem for your customers. There are many ways to advertise these products/services offline, but for optimum advertising, it’s smart to have a web site. Here, potential customers can look at your products/services and decide if you are offering something that is going to “solve the issue(s) they have”. You have a better chance of your customers shopping both in your place of establishment AND off your web site.

To start, there is the domain name, the web hosting, the web site design, and the list goes on. The first step in starting your web site is getting a domain name. Once you have this step completed, it’s time to get your web hosting. There are many web hosting companies where you can do both of these steps all on the same site. Some think you have to pay a crazy amount of money in order to accomplish this. This is simply not the case. You can set your site up on a shoe string budget.

Don’t be confused. There is a difference between “cheap” web hosting and “affordable” web hosting. You want web hosting, but you want someone that’s going to be reliable. If your site happens to go down for any reason, you need to know that you will be able to contact the company and get your site up again quickly. One of the best web hosting companies is HostGator. The wonderful thing about this company is that they do not require a long term contract. You are able to use their services month to month. They also have a free site builder, unlimited bandwidth, unlimited space, and, for a limited time, programs starting at only $3.95 per month.

There are MANY web hosting companies on the web fighting for your business. Make sure to research these companies. Although there are many GREAT companies out there that will make your experience extremely easy, there are also those that are saying what they know you want to hear in order to cheat you out of your money. You need a company that’s going to offer you what you need, but will also be reliable at the end of the day.

A great site that compares four different reliable and AFFORDABLE web hosting companies is Your One Stop Shop. It is a very informative site (describing each of the companies) and contains convenient links in order to quickly navigate to the company of your choice.
