If you’re in the market for a new website and you know you need website hosting, you’re probably keen to know how much it costs.

Website hosting can cost as little as $1/month up to $100+/month for “VPS (virtual private server)” hosting.

Cheap hosts like Host Papa try and fit as many websites as they can onto their web servers and the result is slow web hosting.

Small businesses really don’t need VPS hosting unless they’re planning on some kind of advanced web application functionality, which is not normally the case.

A good quality website host should cost around $10/month. Make sure your web host uses solid state drives, and LiteSpeed web server instead of Apache web server (which is slower than the fast LiteSpeed web server).

If you’re in Australia, Insight Hosting offer Australian SSD LiteSpeed web hosting, starting from $10/month.
