Finding good web hosting should be a high priority when you are building your personal web site. It is important to find a service which will fit for you. If you know HTML and want to build your site from scratch, you need a service which provides FTP access. If you have never built a site before and are a little intimidated, find a web host which offers pre-made templates so all you have to do is add your information and photos. Affordable personal web hosting is widely available so you don't have to pay much to have your own website. You should expect to pay from $3.95 to $6.95 per month for a good, reliable service.
