Can I just host my website myself?

Yes, hosting your own website is possible, but it can be more expensive and time-consuming than you think. You will need to purchase costly hardware and software and may also need to hire an IT technician.

Hosting your website also means taking responsibility for your server security and ongoing server maintenance. You’ll also have to invest in the infrastructure required to maintain constant power and network connection.

As your business grows and requires more bandwidth, scalability becomes an important factor. Upgrading your in-house servers can be time-consuming and costly. In contrast, web hosting providers can often provide an instant bandwidth increase with just a plan upgrade.
