    Your small business needs a website. Nowadays, it's as essential as any other kind of presence like a physical shop or your business phone line. A business website doesn't necessarily need to be expansive, complicated, or even expensive to launch, but you do need some kind of web presence.Web hosting is, as the name suggests, where your website is hosted. It's the home of your site, which means the speed of your site and its reliability depend upon the web hosting service you choose

    There are a number of aspects to consider for getting web hosting from your home also reliant on the kind of website you will be running, below are general factors to look for when selecting the right web host.

    Lots of Bandwidth: Bandwidth is the amount you have accessible to transfer web pages from the web server to the browsers of visitors to your site. As a business, you will intend to have numerous visitors to your site, and that needs a lot of bandwidth. Even more so if you site offers audio and video downloads.

    Uptime: Selecting a business web host that assurances uptime is also a vital requirement for business websites. 99.9% uptime is one of the features presented by web hosting companies these days. Find out how true their claim is by asking what they really do to maintain that 99.9% uptime.

    Speed: The best web host for businesses will have ideal speed to make sure that your visitors will not have to wait for your web pages to load, or they'll leave your site halfway.
    Cost: No doubt cost is also a significant factor to consider, as it eventually affects the company's profit margin. The low-priced plan available will not help a business to run properly, and the most costly plan doesn't necessarily mean that it's the best.

    Customer Support: Every web hosting company these days will claim that they have 24/7 client support, but chances are you may be put on hold through if you try calling them late at night, or during the weekend.

    Test your server from another server that is not connected to your home network. This will help you to understand whether you have followed the steps correctly to start web hosting business of your own.

    the simple way would be affiliated with other big web hosting providers and we just need to act as middle man. we just need to buy reseller hosting package and get clients and sell the share of our hosting package. this way will help us a lot than starting webhosting in our home.

    The first thing you will need is an internet connection that is able to handle your traffic load. When hosting from home this will be your biggest obstacle. The cost of a very fast internet line will very often be a barrier. As a result of this connection speed will very often be your bottleneck.

    To make an attempt at true hosting you will also require a fixed ip address. A fixed ip address is an ip address that never changes. some services provide this at an extra charge. Be sure to ask your provider if this is available. It has been knows for some providers to allocate the same ip address to users for a period of time then suddenly flush their ip configuration and allocate different ip addresses to their users.

    A static ip address is one of the most important factors to take into account before you even think about hosting from your own location. Another important piece of information you need to find out from your provider is do they block ports. A port is almost like a data stream. For example the default port for web traffic (http) is port 80. If you later found out that your connection provider was to block port 80 you would not be able to serve any web pages on the default port. It is still possible to serve page an another port but it is always the preferred option to provide services on the port they where designed for.

    There are various other ports that you may need. email, ftp, ssh, https to name but some. We will not go into these other service ports in any great detail here. But ideally you should look into using a connection provider that does not block any ports. You should also email any potential providers just to make sure "Am I allowed to use your service to host a web server?" if they say no then you have just saved yourself having your service terminated for abuse. It is very important to adhere to your providers terms and conditions at all times.

    Web Hosting from Your Home

    Several things are needed to start web hosting from your home. Technically, you must acquire or build a computer that can be used as a server. You can install any good operating system and server application to make the process smooth. You will definitely need an Internet connection to start the business of web hosting. The cost of high speed Internet connection may often become an obstacle.

    To establish yourself as a true web host, you need a fixed internet protocol (IP) address an address which never changes. This IP address must be local. You must also need a router to start web hosting business from your home. The main advantage is that for each component, you do not need a separate unit.
