Hosting and storage

What is hosting?

This is basically the computer that holds or hosts your website files. It is usually handled by the company who provide your website building system.  Many domain registration agents will provide hosting services for a monthly fee of around 4.

How much storage will I need?

A club website, unless it provides a huge photo gallery, can easily work within 100Mb that most hosting companies provide as a minimum.

Bandwidth

In the web hosting context, bandwidth refers to how many bytes of information a web hosting company will allow to be transferred from the server each month. This will affect the amount of traffic you can have to your website in any one month.  A club website is unlikely to require more than 100Mb. Professional hosting companies will allow more but may make an extra charge of around 5 per 1Gb.
