How Can Web Hosting Benefit Your BusinessOctober 26th, 2017
The term ‘Web Hosting’ is thrown around a lot in IT departments, but what does it actually mean? Essentially, web hosting is a service which allows individuals to post either a web page or website onto the internet. Websites are then stored or ‘hosted’ on computers called servers. Professional web hosting allows for technical support and increased web security which is simply not accessible with free web options. But how exactly can professional web security benefit your business?
If you were to choose a large hosting service, despite the one and only benefit of a cheap service in the short term, your company could actually be in jeopardy in the long term. This is because you the customer, are lost in a vast sea of other companies which means no one is actually looking after your site, and in turn, leads to poor service. Many times, large hosting sites are often a target for hackers as they can extract a lot of information quickly. However, with a dedicated hosting service you are less likely to get hacked and in turns this ends up with a service that is a lot more reliable.
A professional web hosting site can give you unrestricted access to how your website looks as well as what supporting technologies you wish to use. This is a great advantage to your business as you don’t need to worry about compromising on certain aspects of your site. You have free reign to create your website, just how you want it.
With a professional web hosting service, you have access to a private domain name. This may not seem like a big deal but you are able to create personalised emails and email campaigns which will contribute to increasing your brand recognition. Potential leads are more likely to use your service if they see that your email address reflects your company. This will also help maintain your work / life balance as you can now introduce clients to your branded email system.
