Finding a remote server for files of our site. Web hosting service.

To make our site accessible for the Internet community, we need a connected to the network computer running a server program. You can, of course, run a similar program on your own machine, but, among other things, you will have to keep your computer constantly turned on.

So we need to find a host (or hosting), a computer that will provide us with some space for storage and will make our files viewable on the net. In this case everything is much simpler then in the previous one, probably because the possibility of reselling our own precious domain name back to us through an auction (for how much fantasize for yourselves, figures can vary greatly) is not involved.
But, nevertheless, the license agreement is worth to be read, you will not be very happy finding that your site is offline while the hosting is paid for in advance and on your complaint receiving from your hosting provider a link to a license agreement, where it is written in black and white (and, believe me, it was written there) that your site and its functioning is none of their concern.

Usually it goes like this: "A host is not liable for any errors or interruption in service, whether within or outside of the host's reasonable control. Client understands interruptions may or may not occur and Client will hold the host free and harmless from any damages incurred in any event of any time of loss... In no event shall the host or any of its officers, contractors, or employees be liable for any loss of profit or revenue by Client or for any consequential, incidental, special or exemplary damages incurred or suffered by Client" and so on. In fact, this kind of license agreement will be readily processed in a court with a resulting verdict almost certainly in your favor, but is it worth time and effort?

It must be said that recently hosting providers mainly rewrote their license agreements in a more agreeable forms.

But in this section we can already begin to talk about really nice things. At the moment it's possible to find a fairly decent free web hosting without any additional advertising on your pages, with fairly large amount of disk space and monthly traffic :o). In the future, you can change your relations with the chosen company and begin to pay for their services (getting a significant increase in traffic and disk space as well as access to many of additional services).

How to find a suitable host? Just google-it (address of the search engine GOOGLE -, if someone does not know). Moreover, a lot of sites specialize in comparing hosting providers, and the best of all - there you can read reviews of their numerous customers. For example, here's a link to - a list of free hosts in the site directory, sorted by the date they were added to the website . Look around, read reviews, choose! You'll see that everything is not so bad. Although problems with the site may occur. And sometimes for totally unknown reasons. For example, there were two more or less equal sites on the same host. With one of them during some time there was a lot of various problems, while the other one was continuing to function smoothly.
