Quick Facts Here are some quick answers to questions about why you should choose Web 66 for your Web Hosting Service Provider.
THE BIG QUESTION : Will 200 MBs be enough? Most (97%) Web Sites require less than 10 MB! Why pay for storage you will never need. Other services offer huge amounts of space at higher costs because they know their clients will never use that much storage. AND they include the storage of your access log file in the quota. This log file can easily surpass the storage needed for your entire web site in just a few months.
Also remember, you DON'T want large files on your Web Site because such files will take forever for your visitors to download. A typically long Web Page is only 10K. This means you can store 10,000 web pages on your 200 MB site. An average logo for the top of a homepage is 15K. This means you can store over 5000 logos on your 200 MB site. Finally, an average icon/button is 4k. This means you can store 12000 such icons/buttons on your 40 MB web site. Now you decide - just how many pages/logos/buttons do you need? If you keep your site well maintained, and remove outdated files and materials, you will probably never need more than 200 MBs.
You can register your domain with us for $20 per year in order to use your own domain name (i.e., Your_name.COM). (This covers the Internic domain registration fee.) You may also choose a domain name such as Yourname.Route66.NET or Yourname.Web66.COM to avoid Internic charges. There is no charge for these domain names because NSSB has already paid the fees for Route66.NET and Web66.COM. You can also register your domain with another registration service. Just be sure to set your domain servers to be ns.route66.net and ns2.route66.net.
