Web Hosting Costs
The cost of web hosting varies depending on the needs and size of your website. We will always explain your likely requirements and find you the best package for the best possible price.
As a rough guide, monthly hosting can cost as little as £1.75 per month, (£27 a year) and offer more than enough disk space for a website with numerous pages and images and enough bandwidth for several thousand visitors per month. Paying a little extra will provide unlimited disk space and bandwidth plus facilities for databases, forums, chatrooms, mailing lists, etc.
In addition to hosting your website, most providers also offer email facilities. This may be as little 5 email accounts, or unlimited, depending on the provider. Having your own domain-related email adds a professional touch to your Internet business.
One drawback we have found with some hosts is that their email facilities do not offer the same functions and ease of use of popular email providers, (Yahoo, Hotmail, Google, etc.). To provide a better service to our customers, HB-WebDesign use and recommend GoogleMail to handle domain email. This is a free service provided by Google, but requires setting up with both Google and your web host. This service offers a simple to use admin area to add accounts, (up to 100 free), auto-responders, use one account to send and receive from numerous addresses, and many more easy to use features.
We are currently offering a FREE email set-up service for customers commissioning a new website and buying a hosting package through our website.
