  • Hosting for a small business start up - digital audio file and CD

    Hello and thanks so much for your time.

    Along with a business partner I will be looking to open up a website for business come this spring/summer. I have many questions regarding the type of hosting that will best suite the needs of making our product available to the public. (as well as payment gateways, etc...)

    Wordpress will be the content management system (unless reasons to change develop) and the product for sale will be both a digital audio file and/or an audio Compact Disc. This product is a safety guidance audio soundtrack for specific machine operators.

    Its difficult at this point to judge what the level of traffic or sales will be out of the gate, for there isn't really any other product that addresses the issue that this does. It is however a "HUGE" issue it addresses and there's no telling what to expect. I would rather prepare for a great deal of traffic than to set the bar low as in a typical shared hosting, and find out we need to move up into VPS or dedicated. Where neither my partner nor I are very computer savvy, we may be looking at a managed hosting service and would expect to pay more for this. I know there is no cheap way toward a good reliable service that will offer a high level of optimization, speed, protection and non-interruption of service.

    So, this begins our process of discovering what we are going to need, and where and how to go about meeting the requirements. I'm very excited about this venture, and hope some of you may help to guide me along the way toward an appropriate hosting provider and service for out new upcoming business.

    Any information on web hosting service? Where can I read customer hosting reviews about them?

    Thank you very much!

      You can send an email to a potential web hosting service and judge their customer service, firsthand.

        I want a hosting service for my Magento e-commerce website. What hosting site you guys recommend. I'm looking for a Hostgator. Is it reliable in terms of customer support? And any discount on Black Friday sale or any coupons (i.e. Black Friday coupons)

          Prices are really good, hosting is just INCREDIBLE in features.
          Personally I like cpanel web host and can highly recommend to other webmasters who want to run blogs, forums, e-commerce web sites fast and efficiently.

            If you want to stream audio or video through your website, a VPS or dedicated server is the ideal option. If you buy a server elsewhere and contact me, I'll offer you a dedicated support team.
