When you website is ready to be launched you will need to host it on a server.

The typical process looks like the following:

  1. Purchase a Hosting Plan
  2. Publishing Your Website (FTP)

What to look for in a hosting service

Speed, Service & Pricing

Pricing is certainly the most eye catching portion of most hosting advertisements, but it is certainly no where near the most important. “If the price is low, but your website’s slow” then you may find yourself regretting the decision later on.

Unless you are very familiar with servers then I would also recommend getting a company that offers great service. Not just great in that they are polite, but one that is open 24/7, offers service with technically savvy workers (not just ones reading a script), has been around a while, and has a great inventory of tutorials.

Shared vs Dedicated

The average size of most RapidWeaver websites are not extremely large, in which case you would need a dedicated server. Most websites do not need a dedicated server and can be hosted on much less expensive Shared Servers. However, I find clients often want to start small and possible work their way big later on. For that reason I would recommend finding a company that offers both.
