How to Choose a Web Host For Your Website
Welcome to the 2nd step of getting your site online.
Once you have registered your domain name you're ready to find a web host.
A web host provides you with the space, email accounts, bandwidth, scripts (WordPress, forums, etc.) and customer support so you can build your website.
This is the most important decision you'll make for your site. Make sure you pay attention to the tips below so you choose a host that is right for your needs.
Host your website here and you will get my free web templates (with video instructions). So if you want to create a static website like this one, you'll have some help to get you going.
I can guarantee you that no other host is going to provide templates like this with video guidance. Please don't forget that the templates are on the thank you page immediately after you place your order.
If you choose Website Tonight, you will have access to a template builder. No software is needed. You just choose from thousands of templates, add your text, images, video and you're ready to go.
Even though this option is extremely easy and fast, I wouldn't recommend it for business websites or blogging. It's best for very simple, personal sites with mostly text and pictures.
Website Tonight is not nearly as popular as it used to be. I would highly recommend going with the regular hosting plan.
Also, if you know you want a blog, Website Palace also has a WordPress hosting option. It's really the same as the regular hosting, except WordPress will automatically be installed for you upon setup. So it cuts out some extra steps.
All-in-One Hosting Option: Site Build It
SBI! is a very unique solution. Unlike Website Palace, you don't have to register a domain name separately because everything you need is included in the price.
I want to repeat and make sure you understand....
If you choose Site Build It!, you do not need to go to WebsitePalace.com to buy a domain name, choose hosting, buy software or anything. Site Build It! takes care of all that for you.
The domain name, hosting, web page building tools, marketing help, search engine submission, ranking reports, and more all come with your monthly or yearly fee.
SBI! uses templates so no HTML knowledge is necessary. All you do is choose a template of your choice and add your text to build your website.
Don't get me wrong. You can use WebsitePalace.com's regular hosting plan for a money-making website, but you don't get the marketing help that you will definitely need if you want to draw in targeted traffic.
I would never say you must use SBI! to achieve success, I'm just saying it's the best complete system I know. There really isn't another system online that teaches you how to build your site and make money online while providing you with all the tools you'll need in one place.
After all, if you don't learn how to generate traffic, you won't make any money.
The other hosts mentioned here do not provide much guidance for how to monetize your site (if that's your goal). Of course, you can learn on your own, but if you want the hand-holding then SBI! may be the solution.
SBI! has a tool called Brainstorm It!. It takes you through a keyword research process that helps you analyze demand (what people search for online) so you can choose a topic that is not too saturated, but has enough demand to get traffic.
So many people put very little thought into choosing a topic so they end up picking something that is either way too saturated or not enough demand.
At $29/month ($299 per year), SBI! may cost more than the other hosts listed here, but it will cut out numerous learning hurdles of both creating and marketing your site.
I got to meet Ken Evoy in 2007 at the Affiliate Summit. This guy knows his stuff and it was truly an honor to finally meet him in person.
His tutorials and advice have played a huge role in helping me earn enough to quit my 9 to 5 job.
Whether you want to sell products or just create an affiliate site like I did, SBI! is a wonderful solution, especially if you've never created or marketed a website before.
You can use any of the hosts listed here to build a money making website. You just won't get the help that I believe you will need when it comes to learning how to rank high in the search engines.
Site Build It's main focus is helping you earn money.

One Final Summary of The Hosting Options
Just in case you're still not sure about which hosting option to select, here's an overview and some basic tips on choosing the right hosting option for you..
If you're looking for a quick and easy way to build a personal site then choose one of the WebSite Tonight packages. The point and click web page building tools make creating your site a breeze.
This is a great plan for simple, personal websites. A lot of people use Website Tonight for "About Me", wedding and vacation sites. It's a great choice for sites that will have lots of photos.
All you do is select a design template and then add your text and pictures. No software or programming experience necessary. Beginners who need a very simple site love this option.
The money I earn from this site is all passive. I don't sell any products directly, it's all affiliate income. What's even better is the site basically makes money on autopilot.
Site Build It! is not a get-rich-quick scheme. I didn't wave a magic wand and money appeared. I did have to read their Action Guide and work on building my content, marketing my site, etc.
But it was nice that I could focus on that while SBI! handles all the technical tasks and search engine submission processes in the background.
