• Subdomains. Some Web hosting companies allow you to create subdomains for your Web site, such as support.yourcompany.com or events.yourcompany.com. If your company has separate divisions that want their own sites, subdomains are a costeffective solution, since you don’t have to pay additional registration fees for them.
• Mailing Lists, List Servers, and Majordomo. Depending on your business or organization, you may want to start an e-mail mailing list. A number of methods exist for creating mailing lists, so if you think this might be a capability you need, consider finding a Web hosting company that includes some sort of mailing list capability at little or no extra cost.
• Data Transfer Limitations. Some Web hosting companies have a limit on how much data can be transferred per month. Every time someone views a page on your site or downloads a file, that visitor is transferring data from your site. Similarly, when you upload new pages or files to your site, you’re also transferring data. If your site goes above its limit (because of lots of visitors or large file downloads), you’re charged extra.
