Google has published a blog post on its web hosting blog about what to look out for when purchasing a web hosting account.
The post, written by Jason Toth, gives examples of what to expect when buying a new MySQL web hosting service and discusses how to manage your account, including the option to buy additional web hosting to ensure a secure site.
For example, if you are a new customer, you might want to look at the MySQL Hosting website or the Google Hosting forums to find out what other options exist.
The site also provides a handy list of security and backup options, including a quick way to restore your MySQL server if your server gets lost or stolen.
If you have trouble managing your account with the web hosting services, you can also create a backup by copying the contents of the backup folder to your own drive and then copying the file back to the same folder.
Toth also offers a number of tips and tricks on how to configure your web hosting for optimal performance and security.
For a complete list of all the web host options, head to the Google web hosting forums and search for “web hosting.”
