Maybe you have a great idea for the next great website. You have determined what the market is for your product or your site. Perhaps you have the game plan and a basic layout for the site all in your head. Perhaps you are already dreaming of ways to take the Cyber world by storm. Your ambition should be applauded but that doesn’t mean everything is ok. What you think is just an easy path to riches and fortune and the envy of all your friends could mean a lot more of something you weren’t anticipating. That something is money and unless you are ready you might buy the domain and not have the bandwidth to promote it.
Here’s the thing about a website: it’s a lot more money than you might think. The cost to buy a website it pretty simple and inexpensive but the cost to use that website to it’s fullest might be more than you bargained for. A site like youtube cost’s a lot more money than your average site. When you buy a website you are buying the domain name. What you are not buy is the bandwidth and the space it takes to run that site effectively. A website, like the aforementioned Youtube, takes a massive amount of bandwidth because those videos are big and it requires a big processor to fix them. This doesn’t mean that your website is going to cost what other websites do it’s that you should be prepared.
Look into the prices of bandwidth before you agree to do anything. Whatever it costs make sure that you have the money to cover the expenses of it for a year or even longer. It won’t be more than a few hundred bucks but that doesn’t mean you have the money to afford it. Get that straight before you buy anything.
