ISP (Intrnet Service Providers) and Hosting

Do not confuse the Internet service provider (ISP) which provides you with a connection to the Internet and the host who hosts your site on its server. Although some ISPs also offer hosting, it is often cheaper to do business with two separate companies. There are free and paid hosts.

ISP (Internet Service Providers)

How to choose your Internet service provider?

The variables are:

Does it offer high speed? With the exception of specialized companies with RNS lines, Videotron is faster than Bell-sympatico high speed.

Reliability: Check with subscribers.

– Is the ISP server often down?

– Does it have enough lines to support all of its subscribers.

The cost? Compare.

If the content is just as important as the container for the success of a website, we sometimes tend to forget the fundamental role that the quality of hosting plays. Poor connectivity, poorly exploited or malfunctioning technology, and your losses (in terms of audience and therefore often money) quickly add up significantly. The first rule to observe is to “plan wide”. Undersizing your accommodation, or evaluating it too tightly, is a mistake. Surprises are often unpleasant and costly when your traffic exceeds your forecasts, and the bandwidth quota allocated to you explodes under the yoke of your visitors. (…) To read more in 2001.txt
