Forward Looking Webhosting Plans
Having a business means wanting it to grow. If the business is web-based, having a web host who offers the capability for their clients to expand their hosting packages as their business grows is essential. Even without dedicated hosting, it is easy to find hosting packages that allow this sort of flexibility, oftentimes in a more cost-effective way than with dedicated hosting.
Shared hosting, where several different sites share the same server machine, provides a good option for flexible storage and bandwidth needs. These packages are usually offered at several different levels of service. Generally, moving one or two notches higher on the service level doesn’t entail a great deal more money for the added service.
If one’s website is being expanded, changing from 5GB of disc space to 10GB of disc space is usually only as complicated as upgrading your subscription online or talking with a customer service representative. There is the possibility that your site will be transferred to a different server to accommodate such changes to service, but the process of transfer is usually painless and quite frequently requires no user intervention. In some cases, the user won’t even be aware that they’re now located on a different machine.
Bandwidth generally scales with disc space, so increasing one will usually entail an increase in the other. The more files you have on your site, the more bandwidth it will require. Webhosting companies keep their packages practical by tying one need to the other.
