Frequently Asked Questions
What is web hosting, and why do I need it?
Webhosting is a service that allows your website to be accessible online. When you pay for web hosting, you’re essentially renting space on a physical server that belongs to the web hosting provider to store all the files and data needed to make your website functional. When someone tries to access your website, their browser sends a request to your web host’s server. The server then retrieves and displays your site on the user’s end. Without the web hosting service, your website wouldn’t be accessible. Picking a reliable web hosting provider affects how fast your website loads and how often it goes down, so it’s no small decision.
What is uptime, and why does it matter?
Website uptime is the amount of time your website is “up” and accessible and functional for users. It’s a business-metric, because having good uptime and response time improves productivity and profits. Having a consistent and reliable website strengthens your online presence, reflects well on your business and can also help increase profits – especially if you have an in-site shopping function that needs to be dependable. No website has 100% uptime (99.9% uptime is about 9 hours of downtime a year), but having your website up as much as possible should always be a priority.
What’s the difference between web hosting services and web maintenance services?
When you pay for web hosting, you rent space on a server that stores all your data and allows it to be transmitted to the end user. On the other hand, website maintenance is an ongoing service to ensure your website is up-to-date, secure and otherwise ensure that it’s always working as it should. They’re two separate but equally necessary services to ensure your website is operational and accessible.
Does web hosting affect my search engine ranking?
Yes, choosing a reliable website hosting service does affect your search engine ranking. The Google algorithm favours websites that are fast and reliable, and the provider you choose to host your website directly impacts this. Websites with good “up-time” are also more likely to advance in search engine rankings. So, if SEO is your priority, choosing a high-quality web host and a plan that suits your needs is essential.
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.
