What is Web Hosting?
A web hosting service allows individuals and organizations to make their website accessible via the World Wide Web.
The scope of web hosting services varies greatly. The most basic is web page and small-scale file hosting, where files can be uploaded via File Transfer Protocol (FTP) or a Web interface. The files are usually delivered to the Web "as is" or with minimal processing.
Single page hosting is generally sufficient for personal web pages. A complex site calls for a more comprehensive package that provides database support and application development platforms (e.g. PHP, Java or ASP.NET). These facilities allow customers to write or install scripts for applications like forums and content management. Also, Secure Socket Layer (SSL) is typically used for websites that wish to keep the data transmitted more secure.
Why is it so important to get reliable hosting for your website or online files?
Most smart business owners utilize websites and blogs to keep in touch with their existing clientele and reach potential customers. while most business owners see the value of creating awesome content, the importance of selecting a good web host often takes a back seat.
What happens when you make the wrong hosting choice?
As a business, one of your most important priorities is maximizing profits. if you think choosing the wrong web hosting can't have a negative impact on your income, think again. Here are some bad things that can happen when you do not choose the best web hosting for your needs:
Loss of revenue If your site goes down, your potential customers will not be able to view your blog posts or learn about your products and services. Even worse, if you host an online store you will lose on potential sales and income. Amazon recently had a 40 minute outage which cost them about $5 million dollars. your loss might not be as big, but it's still a loss of revenue.
Negative effect on your SEO ranking Your goal with content marketing is to rank high in the search results so customers can find you easily. if your site is down repeatedly when search engines are attempting to visit, then your ranking will be adversely effected. Many SEO experts believe that slow websites can also hurt your rankings.
Security and Malware Attacks There is no perfect solution for keeping your website secure. However a reputable web hosting company will backup your data to a remote server and make it easy to restore in case your site is hacked. they will also assist you with technical support, maintenance and security issues 24 hours a day.
How do I choose the best web hosting provider?
It's critical to choose a reliable web hosting company to ensure that your website remains safe and accessible all year round. if you are having problems with your existing provider or have no idea what needs/features to consider, here are some tips:
Understanding the different hosting options available There are various web hosting options available such as Shared, VPS (Virtual Private Server), Dedicated and Managed Web hosting.
Excellent customer support is a must The internet never sleeps, look for a provider who offers excellent customer support. Hosting providers may claim that they offer 24/7 support, but this will not guarantee you will receive fast knowledgeable service. Test the response of the customer support staff before committing to any long term hosting contract.
Choose a host with an excellent uptime track record The hosting provider you choose should take every precaution to ensure maximum uptime while no web host can offer 100% uptime, it should offer at least 99% uptime.
Cost should not be your only consideration As the saying goes "you get what you pay for". As a business you can not afford to experience extended down time. basic shared web hosting is great if your site is generating only a small amount of traffic. On the other hand if you're in business of selling products or generating a large amount of traffic then a dedicated or managed hosting provider is a far better choice. It will cost more upfront but will be more reliable in the long run. The level and quality of technical support will be better too.
Ability to scale As your business grows, your website will tend to generate more traffic. The ability to scale will be increasingly important. Your web hosting provider should be able to upgrade and scale to accommodate your traffic growth.
Good reputation is essential Once you have narrowed down the list of important features you require, the next step is to find a host with a top-notch reputation.
- Do a background check, find out for how long the company has been in business.
- Check maintenance schedules and general down time statistics.
Remember that choosing a hosting provider solely on price is not worth the hassle and headaches if your site goes down.
