Cheap hosting should mean just that: no hidden agendas and no lengthy delays and application processes. Although the service is cheap, you will still need to know a few basic facts. There should not be a sudden fee thrust upon you in 12 months’ time, but the quality of service should not be diminished due to the low cost.
In order to build a good website, you will find that, roughly speaking, a web page complete with text and images comes to about 100KB, so it is important to ensure that any web hosting service you are using has adequate space for many pages. It is equally important to check that you have a large web traffic allowance for your site. You will find that each time your web page is viewed in the month; it counts towards whatever your monthly quota is, and having a low quota means that you will be liable for costly fees if you exceed your traffic allowance.
