How to Upload a website

For your website you need somewhere to store all your files. Documents, Images, etc. Pricings for hosting can vary from $3.95 up to $15 or more per month, depending on a few things (Number of Visitors, large files hosted, images)

What is bandwidth?
Each hosting plan you look at has a bandwidth limit, this is normally a per month limit, if you look at bandwidth like a bunch of cars on a highway it tells you how many cars are allow to go on a highway before you need to add another lane, it also means that only a certain amount of cars can go via that highway per month. If you have big video file (a large truck) it takes up more bandwidth. Smaller files/images mean smaller cars, meaning more traffic can go through, so try making files small if possible.

What is the difference between Windows and Linux host?
When you see on a hosting website, “Windows server” or “Linux server” then its giving you the option on what programming language your website is written in. Talk to your webmaster about this. PHP programming language runs on Linux systems and ASP programming language runs on Windows systems.
