Why you need web hosting
The aim of web hosting is to make all the means available that are required to make a website accessible on the Internet. More technically demanding and complicated ways of getting content up onto the Internet also exist. Unless you are ready to have a server standing in your premises and you are interested and have the skills to configure the name server, etc. then you need a web hosting service. This is also what the majority of domain owners choose to make use of.
Domain, email and website
The core service in web hosting is to get the website onto the network so that everyone with a connection to the Internet can see the page on their computer. The best thing to do is to have your own domain so, for instance, visitors only need to write example.com to find your personal website.
Another just as important part of web hosting worth mentioning is email. With email you have access to an incredibly effective and time-saving means of communication. And with email on your own domain, you emphasise your personal identity in a more complete way than with a free email provider.
In addition to web hosting usually containing a domain, a certain number of email addresses and a specific traffic volume, you will also be able to use a number of associated services from a web hosting provider. For example, many web hosts offer a form of protection against spam and virus, visitor statistics and possibly a database for the web space.

Why you should pay for web hosting
There are various forms of "free web hosting" on the market. However, as a rule these are product packages with strictly limited functionality and size. Moreover, these types of web hosting are based on servers with low performance and poor stability. If you are willing to accept the disadvantages and you are ready to manage without support on the product, then free web hosting may perhaps cover the need for a limited period.
But if you prioritise stability, security and user-friendliness and if the quality of your web hosting is important to you, then in the majority of cases a paid web space would be the only right thing. This must also be seen in the light of quality web hosting at One.com not needing to cost more than 1,25€ per month.
Significant differences to web hosting
There is a significant difference to what you get for your money when you buy web hosting. As a basis, with many providers you will only be allocated a single or a few email addresses; other places will give you so little space that files will need to be constantly deleted in order to have enough megabytes available online.
On the day you may need a database or more email addresses; you will most likely be billed a separate charge for this. The same applies to traffic to the web space. It is a rare thing that web hosting includes free and unlimited traffic to a web space. The majority of providers bill a separate charge for traffic that exceeds a fixed limit for traffic volume. This is despite the fact that these providers are often already more expensive than One.com.

It is worth your while to note that One.com supplies complete web hosting to all clients. This means that all functions are available from day one and so saying, we also mean everything from gallery, blog, website programme to an unlimited number of email accounts. Furthermore, we have unlimited traffic so you never need to think about whether an unpleasant extra bill will arrive because your web space has exceeded the allocated traffic consumption.
