What is Website Hosting?

Website hosting is the process of storing a website on a server, including all of its associated files, assets and data. This allows people to access the website from any computer or device with an internet connection.

The right web hosting partner can make a huge difference in how successful your website is. Different hosting services offer different levels of storage, security, performance and control over the server environment. For example, shared web hosting lets you share resources with multiple websites, while dedicated hosting gives you exclusive access to a physical server. Additionally, virtual private servers (VPS) provide enhanced security and stability compared to shared hosting, while cloud hosting allows for greater scalability.

Let’s evaluate your needs and find the right hosting solution for you.

Business Website Hosting Services

Small Business Website Hosting

If you have a website for your small business that is not built on a DIY website builder like Wix or Squarespace, you’ll need a hosting platform to properly support the website. Like any website, a small business website requires a secure server where content can be backed up and accessed quickly by users. The ability to access a website quickly can help turn visitors of your website into customers.

A dependable small business website hosting solution is also important to your website’s SEO. Google is not shy about rewarding websites with fast experiences and part of the speed of a website comes back to its hosting.

E-Commerce Website Hosting

Any website that sells products online is also in need of reliable hosting. You need customers to be able to access product information and make a purchase without any hiccups in the process. E-commerce websites also require an extra level of security since a financial transaction takes place.

With our e-commerce website hosting options, we ensure your website is ready to handle traffic from shoppers looking for your products and we leverage security features. Our hosting is also scalable, so we can quickly implement new resources as needed.

Host your e-commerce site with us and you’ll notice the difference in no time.

Enhanced Security for Your Website

Security is one of the most important factors you can look for in a website hosting provider. Not only should you have a hands-off SSL certificate (what makes the site load in HTTPS instead of HTTP) that ensures data transfers securely, your site should also have malware protection, frequent software updates (including plugin and theme updates) to guard against vulnerabilities, firewall protection to block potential threats, and regular backups for data recovery.

Websites that overlook security measures can be compromised, leaving your website vulnerable and a poor experience for your visitors. Protect your site with the right hosting solution that prioritizes security.

Wordpress Icon

WordPress Hosting

Most small businesses use WordPress as their website backend and content management system. Although WordPress has a lot of robust features and customizable functionality, a WordPress backend also needs a hosting platform to sufficiently manage its features. And, you need to ensure your WordPress-powered content loads as fast as possible for both users and search engines.

Our dedicated WordPress hosting allows us to manage your WordPress environment so you don’t have to. We provide a secure and reliable hosting platform that helps ensure your website runs quickly, efficiently and securely. Plus, our team of WordPress experts are always available to help you with any questions or issues you may have.

Google Workspace Support

One key aspect of running a small business is being able to communicate with customers through a professional email service. Google Workspace, a preferred choice for many business owners, gives you the ability to manage email through a Gmail inbox, storage through Google Drive, appointments through Google Calendar, virtual meetings through Google Meet and so much more. 

Much like website hosting, you don’t want to spend time trying to troubleshoot Google Workspace issues while trying to run other areas of your business. Through our Google Workspace support, we’re happy to help diagnose and resolve any issues you may be facing with the platform.

Frequently Asked Questions About Website Hosting

Do I need website hosting?

Every website needs a ‘home’ on the internet – a place where its files are stored and can be accessed by visitors. That’s what a web hosting service provides. Without it, you won’t be able to publish your website live online.

What are the different types of hosting?

There are several types of web hosting, including shared hosting, dedicated hosting, VPS (Virtual Private Server) hosting, cloud hosting, and managed hosting. The best type for you depends on your website’s needs in terms of storage, speed, reliability, and technical control.

We offer cloud-based hosting through Cloudways.

What is a domain name? Is it different from hosting?

A domain name is your website’s address on the internet. It’s what internet users type into their browser to access your site. For example, “www.yourbusinessname.com” is a domain name.

A domain is different from hosting – it is the address you register for your business, but not where your website actually lives.

Do I need to purchase my domain and hosting from the same company?

No, you don’t have to purchase your domain name and hosting from the same provider. However, doing so can make managing them simpler.

Can I move my hosting from one company to another?

Of course – you can move your website from one web host to another. This process involves transferring your website’s files and databases to the new web host. This process is a bit complex and typically handled by a web development company.

What is uptime in hosting?

Uptime refers to the amount of time that a server is up and running. It’s usually listed as a percentage, like 99.9% uptime. The higher the uptime, the less likely your website is to experience downtime or unavailability.

What is bandwidth in hosting?

Bandwidth refers to the amount of data that can be transferred between your website, its users, and the internet within a certain period. Higher bandwidth can accommodate more traffic without slowing down your website.

Do I need an SSL certificate?

An SSL certificate is a digital certificate that provides authentication for a website and enables an encrypted connection. It’s crucial for protecting sensitive information like customer data.

An SSL certificate is very important for trust of users and search engines. Without it, your website could appear as insecure.
