Web hosting and why it is needed

Thursday, December 24th, 2009

Web hosting is simply the concept that a company hosts your website for an agreed-upon fee. As simple as that sounds, you can find a company that can charge you huge amounts while some firms, such as Host Store, offer you affordable and efficient web hosting services.  So, why does one need this service?

A web hosting specialist will host your site on a server. Depending on the quality of the company, they will often do so on a fast server that can keep up with your websites demands. If you own a website that does receive many hits monthly, then you will require a server that can handle the data that travels to and from this server. This server therefore ensures that your website works properly, and without web hosting, your website is likely to fail.

Who should consider web hosting?

Anyone who owns a website should consider this service. However, there are different packages available and you should determine which type of website you intend on running before selecting the package.

If you own a website that is used for your small business or maybe just for personal use, then you will opt for a cheaper service as the traffic that you are likely to receive will be minimal.

On the other hand, if you have a large company or enterprise that attracts more visitors, your choice of package will be more expensive. These packages are often equipped with tools to handle a large amount of hits to your site and also include some useful additional services.

So, you have a business and you plan on taking your business to the World Wide Web. You have considered creating a website and already know how it will look, what it will contain and even plan on using search engine optimisation to enhance its visibility.

The only thing you are worried about is, who will host your site? When it comes to looking for a professional and reliable web hosting firm, you may feel overwhelmed and confused, especially if it the first time that you plan on using this service. You may not know where to start. So what do you do?

Firstly, you have to realise that there are many small businesses, large companies and enterprises who also struggle with finding a reliable web hosting service. A great start to selecting a service is to know exactly what is offered.

Basically, what web hosting service providers offer you is a space to place your website on. They also give you a domain name so that users will be able to identify you and many include additional services dedicated IP, private SSL, etc.

The ideal web hosting company

Finding the perfect company to host your site can be difficult. Here you really have to look at the company’s reputation, online and offline presence and the packages they offer.

For instance, Host Store have an impeccable reputation among clients, as well as other companies, when it comes to web hosting. There is a package for any type of website, whether small or large, and great service grants added ease for potential clients.

How to avoid deceptive website hosting companies

Thursday, December 17th, 2009

When it comes to website hosting companies, there are a lot of firms out there that make empty promises and are very deceitful. Dealing with these companies can be very frustrating. They don’t always give you what you want and are often just trying to push for extra money. It sometimes happens that clients with small websites that attract very little online traffic get tricked into purchasing huge and more expensive packages meant for large enterprises, when it is absolutely unnecessary.

Being aware of bad website hosting providers

While these very unreliable and untrustworthy firms do exist, it is your duty to ensure that you do not fall victim to their tricks and lies. It is very important that you are informed about website hosting so that you know exactly what to expect and what to avoid.

To avoid learning the hard way, ensure that you know who you are dealing with. This means enquiring about the website hosting company’s reputation and history.

Ask as many questions as you like in order to feel comfortable. A firm with nothing to hide will hide nothing. They will also be happy to provide you with references of clients that they have hosted in order for you to contact them.

Be very weary about website hosting companies that advertise using methods such as spam. Here at Host Store, for instance, we do not bombard our clientele with useless spam in order to trust our services. Rather we allow them to view our website and if they need assistance, we offer 24/7 live chat and e-mail support.
