How To Find Budget Website Hosting Packages Without Compromising Quality

It seems like everyday we can take a look either online or even offline and find a number of offers on website hosting. Some offer free trials, and others show very nominal monthly fee’s. However, how are we to choose, especially if your website is very important to you?

In this website hosting article, you will learn:
* Warning Of The Free Hosting Offers
* A Look At Budget Hosting
* Why Budget May Not Always Be Budget Website Hosting

* Warning Of The Free Hosting Offers
Quite a few years ago I needed a new hosting provider, my original hosting company was with my ISP, and as I learned, this is not the best way to go about hosting a website. I needed something more, so I looked around.

Having looked around I found a very interesting offer from a company, it showed several months of free hosting. So I took the plunge, and soon found things I didn’t expect. Costs which were not plain to see when I got the website hosting package.

This happens every day, and is something to be concerned about. Many website hosting companies offer free trials, some even offer total free hosting. But those that offer the total free, and even some of the free trials end up costing more than you expected. Though this does not usually mean that service won’t be good, it can be, so keep an eye on the total costs.

* A Look At Budget Hosting
What is budget hosting, and why can those website hosting companies offer hosting so low? After all, a little bit of research will show costly packages, and a few show such low prices, it seem unbelievable.

There comes a need to understand the basics. Website hosting companies invest in server computers which hold websites. Now, these servers can hold thousands of websites or a few. But, as you add more websites, the websites suffer in speed.

The budget hosting packages will often place a lot more websites on each server than a more highly priced package at another website hosting company. This is the gist of it; however, hosting companies may even cut back on customer service, thus making prices lower.

* Why Budget May Not Always Be Budget Website Hosting
If we consider the above points, then it would seem apparent that the main consideration is to see whether they are serving other sites well. A good way to tell both points is to try to get through to customer services or more better the technical department, and try asking a question, and see how long till you get a response.

As I often say, a website that is up, is up, but when something goes wrong, how quick till it is resolved? This is an important point, so if you can give a free trial a go, and see if it works in that time, and they offer good service, then you may have found a gem. There are many budget website hosting companies that offer packages that are just as good as the bigger and more expensive hosting companies.

You can discover some of the the best website hosting companies and budget website hosting packages, and learn more about website hosting .

Berlin (/bərˈlɪn/; German pronunciation: [bɛɐ̯ˈliːn] ( listen)) is the capital of Germany and one of the 16 states of Germany. With a population of 3.5 million people,[4] Berlin is Germany’s largest city. It is the second most populous city proper and the seventh most populous urban area in the European Union.[5] Located in northeastern Germany on the River Spree, it is the center of the Berlin-Brandenburg Metropolitan Region, which has about 4.5 million residents from over 180 nations.[6][7][8][9] Due to its location in the European Plain, Berlin is influenced by a temperate seasonal climate. Around one third of the city’s area is composed of forests, parks, gardens, rivers and lakes.[10]

First documented in the 13th century, Berlin became the capital of the Margraviate of Brandenburg (1417), the Kingdom of Prussia (1701–1918), the German Empire (1871–1918), the Weimar Republic (1919–1933) and the Third Reich (1933–1945).[11] Berlin in the 1920s was the third largest municipality in the world.[12] After World War II, the city was divided; East Berlin became the capital of East Germany while West Berlin became a de facto West German exclave, surrounded by the Berlin Wall (1961–1989).[13] Following German reunification in 1990, the city was once more designated as the capital of all Germany, hosting 158 foreign embassies.[14]

Berlin is a world city of culture, politics, media, and science.[15][16][17][18] Its economy is based on high-tech firms and the service sector, encompassing a diverse range of creative industries, research facilities, media corporations, and convention venues.[19][20] Berlin serves as a continental hub for air and rail traffic and has a highly complex public transportation network. The metropolis is a popular tourist destination.[21] Significant industries also include IT, pharmaceuticals, biomedical engineering, clean tech, biotechnology, construction, and electronics.

Modern Berlin is home to renowned universities, orchestras, museums, entertainment venues, and is host to many sporting events.[22] Its urban setting has made it a sought-after location for international film productions.[23] The city is well known for its festivals, diverse architecture, nightlife, contemporary arts, and a high quality of living.[24] Over the last decade Berlin has seen the upcoming of a cosmopolitan entrepreneurial scene.[25]

20th to 21st centuries[edit]

Street, Berlin (1913) by Ernst Ludwig Kirchner
After 1910 Berlin had become a fertile ground for the German Expressionist movement. In fields such as architecture, painting and cinema new forms of artistic styles were invented. At the end of World War I in 1918, a republic was proclaimed by Philipp Scheidemann at the Reichstag building. In 1920, the Greater Berlin Act incorporated dozens of suburban cities, villages, and estates around Berlin into an expanded city. The act increased the area of Berlin from 66 to 883 km2 (25 to 341 sq mi). The population almost doubled and Berlin had a population of around four million. During the Weimar era, Berlin underwent political unrest due to economic uncertainties, but also became a renowned center of the Roaring Twenties. The metropolis experienced its heyday as a major world capital and was known for its leadership roles in science, the humanities, city planning, film, higher education, government, and industries. Albert Einstein rose to public prominence during his years in Berlin, being awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1921.

Berlin in ruins after World War II (Potsdamer Platz, 1945).
In 1933, Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party came to power. NSDAP rule effectively destroyed Berlin’s Jewish community, which had numbered 160,000, representing one-third of all Jews in the country. Berlin’s Jewish population fell to about 80,000 as a result of emigration between 1933 and 1939. After Kristallnacht in 1938, thousands of the city’s persecuted groups were imprisoned in the nearby Sachsenhausen concentration camp or, starting in early 1943, were shipped to death camps, such as Auschwitz.[39] During World War II, large parts of Berlin were destroyed in the 1943–45 air raids and during the Battle of Berlin. Around 125,000 civilians were killed.[40] After the end of the war in Europe in 1945, Berlin received large numbers of refugees from the Eastern provinces. The victorious powers divided the city into four sectors, analogous to the occupation zones into which Germany was divided. The sectors of the Western Allies (the United States, the United Kingdom and France) formed West Berlin, while the Soviet sector formed East Berlin.[41]

The Berlin Wall in 1986, painted on the western side. People crossing the so-called "death strip" on the eastern side were at risk of being shot.
All four Allies shared administrative responsibilities for Berlin. However, in 1948, when the Western Allies extended the currency reform in the Western zones of Germany to the three western sectors of Berlin, the Soviet Union imposed a blockade on the access routes to and from West Berlin, which lay entirely inside Soviet-controlled territory. The Berlin airlift, conducted by the three western Allies, overcame this blockade by supplying food and other supplies to the city from June 1948 to May 1949.[42] In 1949, the Federal Republic of Germany was founded in West Germany and eventually included all of the American, British, and French zones, excluding those three countries’ zones in Berlin, while the Marxist-Leninist German Democratic Republic was proclaimed in East Germany. West Berlin officially remained an occupied city, but it politically was aligned with the Federal Republic of Germany despite West Berlin’s geographic isolation. Airline service to West Berlin was granted only to American, British, and French airlines.

The fall of the Berlin Wall on 9 November 1989. On 3 October 1990, the German reunification process was formally finished.
The founding of the two German states increased Cold War tensions. West Berlin was surrounded by East German territory, and East Germany proclaimed the Eastern part as its capital, a move that was not recognized by the western powers. East Berlin included most of the historic center of the city. The West German government established itself in Bonn.[43] In 1961, East Germany began the building of the Berlin Wall between East and West Berlin, and events escalated to a tank standoff at Checkpoint Charlie. West Berlin was now de facto a part of West Germany with a unique legal status, while East Berlin was de facto a part of East Germany. John F. Kennedy gave his "Ich bin ein Berliner" – speech in 1963 underlining the US support for the Western part of the city. Berlin was completely divided. Although it was possible for Westerners to pass from one to the other side through strictly controlled checkpoints, for most Easterners travel to West Berlin or West Germany prohibited. In 1971, a Four-Power agreement guaranteed access to and from West Berlin by car or train through East Germany.[44]

In 1989, with the end of the Cold War and pressure from the East German population, the Berlin Wall fell on 9 November and was subsequently mostly demolished. Today, the East Side Gallery preserves a large portion of the Wall. On 3 October 1990, the two parts of Germany were reunified as the Federal Republic of Germany, and Berlin again became the official German capital. In 1991, the German Parliament, the Bundestag, voted to move the seat of the (West) German capital from Bonn to Berlin, which was completed in 1999. Berlin’s 2001 administrative reform merged several districts. The number of boroughs was reduced from 23 to twelve. In 2006 the FIFA World Cup Final was held in Berlin.

Outside of the Jewish Museum view
The Jewish Museum Berlin (Jüdisches Museum Berlin) is one of the largest Jewish Museums in Europe. In three buildings, two of which are new additions specifically built for the museum by architect Daniel Libeskind, two millennia of German-Jewish history are on display in the permanent exhibition as well as in various changing exhibitions. German-Jewish history is documented in the collections, the library and the archive, in the computer terminals at the museum’s Rafael Roth Learning Center, and is reflected in the museum’s program of events. The museum was opened in 2001 and is one of Berlin’s most frequented museums (almost 720,000 visitors in 2012).[1]

Opposite the building ensemble, the Academy of the Jewish Museum Berlin was built – also after a design by Libeskind – in 2011/2012 in the former flower market hall. The archives, library, museum education department, and a lecture hall can all be found in the academy.[2]

Princeton economist W. Michael Blumenthal, who was born in Oranienburg near Berlin and was later President Jimmy Carter’s Secretary of the Treasury, has been the director of the museum since December 1997.[3],_Berlin

How to Find the Cheapest Website Hosting For Internet Marketing Websites

Need cheap hosting? Learn how to find the cheapest website hosting for Internet marketing or any online business. Tips and resources for finding the cheapest website hosting online.

In the world of Internet Marketing, there are literally thousands of website hosting companies to choose from. Each hosting package offers something a little different than the other. Depending on your needs, finding the perfect hosting package for you can be hard at times. Below are tips for finding the cheapest hosting and still maintaining a great level of quality.

1. Determine how much website hosting you will need – Do you need hosting for 1, 5, 10, or hundreds of mini-sites? Of those websites, how large are they going to be? These are really important questions to ask yourself when you decide to purchase website hosting. On one hand, purchasing shared hosting for just 1-2 websites may serve your website injustice as shared hosting can sometimes be on the not-so-good side. On the other hand, if you have 10+ websites, paying $ 5 a month for each may get very expensive, especially as your number of websites grow! Be sure to only purchase what is right for you.

2. A wise Internet Marketer never puts all his or her eggs in one basket. Diversify your hosting, even if it between two hosting companies. Putting all your websites through one hosting plan isn’t going to help you decide if it is right for you. Split-test, and if one of the hosting companies should fail you, then you have immediate back-up. NEVER put all your eggs in one basket. This is also an “age-old” SEO method for inter-linking of your own websites.

3. Cheaper is not always better… and More expensive doesn’t always mean “high quality”. Keep this in mind and read reviews online. Carefully decide how much you want to spend in comparison to the quality of hosting you want. You don’t need hundreds of gigs of server space for a little “content website”.

4. Bundle! Sometimes you can find Internet Marketing communities that, as part of their subscription, offer FREE website hosting! This is a great way to bundle and save. This way you can get free software, articles, tools, e-books and more… then to top it off with Free website hosting makes the deal about as sweet as it can get. This is probably the best method to go for Internet Marketers who need tons of hosting space and a little somthing extra.

5. Look for cheap web hosting reviews online. Find out what others think about a certain hosting package. Believe it that people are not shy when it comes to bad service. If a hosting company has ever displeased someone, you’ll definitely hear about it online.

6. Have a question? Contact their support! By doing this, it shows the responsiveness of their customer support. If they take two days to get back to you, then you probably don’t want to use their service. If they rapidly and clearly handle all of your website hosting question, then you know what you can expect from the rest of their service. This is a great method to test the quality of their service.

7. Judge the ease-of-use of their own website. Is it easy to navigate? Does the website have testimonials from other clients? Can you find any cheap website hosting reviews on the particular company you are looking in to? Do some thorough investigation of clues that may indicate their committment to quality.

These general rules can help you get the most perfect and cheapest website hosting available. Do your homework, do your research and you really can’t go wrong. When it comes down to it, it’s all a matter of your specific needs as an Internet Marketer or Business website owner.
