If you are thinking of starting your own business or working from home, chances are that you will need a website. However, don't get confused by the $30-$100 per month business plans offered by some web hosting companies. As a small business, you can find cheap hosting!
First, if you are not collecting money directly through your Website nor selling a number of products, then you will likely not need many of the extras offered in packages that cost $30-$100 per month. These high-end accounts are usually targeted towards merchants who process orders directly or very large businesses who can afford the monthly charge.
Just because you have a small business, does not mean that you cannot go with a cheap hosting solution. As a matter of fact, many small businesses and other professionals who maintain a website to target clients, can get away with purchasing a $6-$10 per month hosting plan. This is because:
A) They have customers/clients pay them through check, money order, Paypal, etc.
B) They only have basic website pages, which usually number 50 or less.
