Hosting Costs


What are hosting costs?

There are many terms that you will have to become familiar with when you begin to consider operating an online business. One of them is hosting costs. When you start a website there is a third party that is supporting the traffic that goes to your website by purchasing the bandwidth from internet providers. The amount that this costs for them is marginal depending the traffic you generate on your site and how much bandwidth and how graphically advanced your site is.

Ultimately you will need to pay for these costs which are known as hosting costs. Expect the costs to fluctuate based on the traffic on your site and for there to be volume discounts offered once you become a certain size. Hosting costs for basic sites with limited traffic can be free but you may need to provide third party advertising to the hosting company as a result.
