I get frequent requests by e-mail, which offer hosting service for podcasters. I got the hosting provider used most frequently, in the listed podcasts, picked out (where these are identified by the URL) for this blog entry. I attach here a special focus on free or low cost offers. The willingness to pay for a service that is rather low, as I could see the mails.
A hosting service should be characterized by a high level of availability. Nothing is more corrosive than when the podcasts are not available just at the moment you would like to use them.Unfortunately, I can`t do availability measurement in the scope of this article. It helps to ask other customers about your experience, or to read advices in relevant forums.
Normally, the amount of data stored podcasts is steadily increasing. Ideally, either the package continues to grow and the basic package is big enough to upgrade to more storage is feasible or there is absolutely no limit to the stored data.
The traffic is included with all offers in the price package. Then you should pay particular attention to “normal” webspace.
Researched and tested I have four German-speaking Podhoster and two free hosting. The Podhostern is Libsyn, podzilla, Save Cast Casting and Sound. The Free hosters that are web hosting providers are at zero cost with a round-offer.
For intermediate and advanced deals there is a rule:
an automatic spam and virus protection
A back-up system included.
Other factors to which all users should pay attention to the experience and reliability of the supplier are:
Security (Are there, for example, protected data center for web server?)
Demonstrably well-functioning technical processes
An easy accessible, competent support
There are usually offers four web hosting packages, which are graded according to the needs of different target groups. Even in the best variant starting 4.0 correspond to the packages professional standards – including 5000 MB disk space, up to 500 e-mail mailboxes, PHP and MySQL databases. Start Plus 4.0 is the check-domain solution for all self-employed, small businesses and associations.
Even more services offers Web Hosting Package Premium 4.0, among others, included five domains, 25,000 MB storage, Traffic Flat, E-mail Flat, 75 times MySQL and many other features.
Especially for large companies, the Business package has check domain 4.0 designed – with ten inclusive domains, 75,000 MB of web space, traffic and e-mail-Flat, comprehensive spam and virus protection, SSL certificate.
In the network there are many services for free or for little money. But often these deals have blemishes. In the field of web hosting which can for example be shortcomings in the technical reliability and safety, but also a difficult to reach support. Before choosing a provider Internet users should be determined by a number of criteria examine the benefits and how to find the optimal solution for their needs.
Space and domain: The basic for beginners
Web hosting is usually offered in a package that includes, among other things, your own domain, space and e-mail mailboxes. Where: The larger a parcel is, the more it costs. If you want to build as a beginner such as its own website, you need to have basically only a domain and of course memory to store its website explains Johannes Herold, Managing Director of the company check domain from Lübeck.
Useful are e-mail accounts that are more suitable for the domain. Furthermore, customers should make sure that they can use a name server. This is needed to set up a mail server and subdomains for a blog.
Another important point is the amount of data: How much traffic is already included in the price? Ideal is a Traffic-Flatrate. It prevents unpleasant surprises afterwards.
