What You Need To Know Before Choosing A Web Hosting Package

When setting out to find a new hosting package, you will find that there is a multitude of options, which can be confusing. It can be hard to know how much disk space, bandwidth, and add-on tools you will need. Take a look at WestHost web hosting packages and the differences between them to choose the perfect hosting package for your project.

What’s in a web hosting package?

Web hosting packages follow a pretty typical format but add additional space, resources, and tools as they scale up. For example, WestHost web hosting packages include:

Website Space

The number of websites you can host with the package. Ranges between one and unlimited websites.

Disk Space

How much storage your hosting packing includes. Ranges between 50GB and unlimited.


The maximum amount of data your website can send. Ranges between 1000GB and unlimited.


The number of databases you can host with your web hosting package. Ranges between one and unlimited.

Additional Features

WestHost offers free setup with each hosting package. Some also include a free domain, unlimited email hosting, a dedicated IP, and an SSL Certificate. You can see a detailed list of WestHost shared hosting packages here

Choosing your web hosting package size.

You know best what you will need for your web hosting. For example, if you need two websites but not an SSL Certificate, then you will want to choose the Preferred Hosting package. However, if you are making a simple site for a digital resumé, then the Personal Hosting package will suit your needs. For complex websites or ecommerce websites, we suggest choosing the Business Hosting package.

How to get started:

To get started, choose the web hosting package from WestHost that you would like and click ‘BUY NOW’. Next, choose how long you would like to secure your hosting. Remember: the longer you purchase upfront, the more you save. You can choose between 3 and 36 months.
Choose which additional features you would like to add, i.e. SiteLock security tool or Cloudflare CDN. Then click ‘CONTINUE TO CHOOSE YOUR DOMAIN’. You also have the choice to use a domain that you already own. All that’s left is to review your shopping cart, enter the necessary information, and complete your purchase. Once the checkout is complete, you will receive login details for your new web hosting account.
