Despite what you may be thinking by the title of this article, this article is not a comparison of different prices from different web hosting companies. There are a number of places where you can get that information, so it seems rather useless to just add another. Rather, what this article does is give you general information on what you should be looking for in terms of the best web hosting prices for particular web hosting packages that you might be interested in. This is useful information because it is information that you can keep in mind when you are shopping around for a web hosting package and information that you can use to determine whether or not the price you are getting is a fair price to begin with.
There are way too many specific types of web hosting packages in the world today to really tackle them all in detail, but for the most part you can actually figure out what the prices of related items should be based on the price knowledge of just two or three different kinds of web hosting. So, without further ado, those three types of web hosting are discount web hosting, Windows web hosting and Linux web hosting.
Ultimately, discount web hosting is of course going to be the most popular type of web hosting in today’s world, simply because there are so many people nowadays looking to start a business online. If you are interested in starting a business online, chances are that for the most part you don’t have a lot of money to begin with and therefore the discount web hosting plan is going to be the one for you. Discount web hosting is very cheap and for the most part very cost efficient. The cheapest discount web hosting plans are going to run you around $5 to $6 a month and at the most a good discount web hosting plan should not cost you more than $10 a month. If it does end up costing you more than $10 a month, you are likely not dealing with an honest web hosting company.
Some people might consider the above to be harsh, but really the reason it is true is because when you get to the $10 barrier, you are actually into both some Windows and some Linux hosting packages that have benefits far in excess of what you could ever hope to get from a discount plan. Therefore, it makes no sense to pay that same amount of money for a discount plan when you could simply take the Windows or Linux plans and get all of the added support that you would not get under a basic plan. Support under Windows plans includes things like support for ASP and MSSQL; things that would perhaps not be there under most discount plans. Windows and Linux plans can both be found for in the $10 to $15 range per month for their basic incarnations and then if you want more space, more bandwidth or anything else, it just increases from there.
