Web hosting is the technology that allows your website to be online. Just like you’d host a guest in your home, think of website hosting as giving your website a place to stay. Once you or a designer has created all the files for your small-business website, they need to be uploaded to a server so anyone on the internet can access it. From images to copy and maybe even a database, it all has to be stored somewhere and connected to your domain name. Using servers, hosting companies are able to store your website. Your website may share a server with other websites being hosted by the same company, or you may choose to pay for a dedicated server to meet your business needs. When deciding on a web hosting provider, it's critical to choose reliable services like ours that keep your small business website online all the time with guaranteed 99.9% uptime.
There are many differences between companies that offer website hosting to small businesses and those that offer more complex hosting services. Some hosting providers expect you to know a lot about website development and maintenance. If you don’t know what a port is, or you don’t know anything about FTP, a bare bones hosting provider isn’t for you. Choose a hosting service that makes it easy to adjust your website information without FTP, database changes, or other complex website-related tasks. A provider offering not only free hosting but also free website builder templates simplifies both hosting and design.
When it comes to hosting, remember to focus on services provided instead of just cost. If you choose a cheap option that provides no support or maintenance assistance, you’ll just end up frazzled and confused whenever there’s an issue. Find a provider at an affordable cost, who has plenty of services provided, and quality customer service. You want to know your hosting provider won’t suddenly disappear or go out of business, and you need to feel confident they provide exceptional customer service.
You have many small-business web hosting options, ranging from purchasing your own server to reserving a dedicated server for your site in someone else’s data center. The right choice for you depends on your site’s traffic levels, your IT "savviness", and your tech support needs.
