The Web hosting industry is vast and growing -- but for potential customers, the array of choices can be mind-boggling. Faced with hordes of vendors vying to win their business, companies must determine their goals before leaping into the fray. Questions prospective customers should ask themselves, according to ebi Group senior analyst Shirley Siluk Gregory, include: How much disk space will we need for online content? What traffic volume do we expect our Web site to handle each month? How sophisticated must our database be?

Great overview about hosting. Even for smaller businesses without strong tech expertise, it's now become easier to try things out without huge or long-term commitments. Please encourage more experimentation by businesses of any size. There are many credible hosting players out there, handling large traffic and volumes to support growth. As businesses reach limitations, they can trade up without onerous switching costs.

Is native advertising good for journalism?
Yes -- It's a reasonable source of additional revenue for media outlets to support their traditional editorial efforts.
Yes -- Paid-for articles can contain useful information, but readers might bypass them if they look too much like ads.
Maybe -- But only if it's clearly labeled as paid-for content.
No -- I don't trust any information from media outlets that cloak paid-for content as objective journalism.
No -- Native advertising is confusing and devious, and it threatens the fabric of traditional journalism.
I Don't Know -- I don't understand what native advertising is.
