Website hosting is a mandatory requirement for running a website – it refers to the computer resources that are used to retain and serve your website to the world. The way hosting is set up depends on the type of website system that your business is using. We help our clients understand the hosting options available to suit their online endeavours, and configure hosting to optimally deliver their website. We also offer customised hosting packages for our clients running WordPress websites enabling the delivery of an optimal performance package for a prices.
What kind of hosting do I need?
This depends on the type of website that you’re running. Some website platforms (e.g. wordpress.com or shopify) are hosted meaning that the hosting is packaged with the website – there is no need to worry about hosting, because it is “built-in”. Alternatively, self-hosted solutions mean that hosting needs to be acquired and configured to run your website on. Examples are websites built with wordpress.org. Determining the type of hosting that’s best for your business means looking closely at the functionality that your website requires, the future of the business, and comparing the available options to find the best, sustainable approach to running your website.
Cost Benefit Analysis
Looking at the costs, and benefits, of different hosting strategies is important because changing things over after becoming established can be challenging! Hosted website solutions may have limited access to website code, or use their own proprietary code, meaning transitioning requires a studied approach. And don’t forget about email!
We provide custom website and email hosting to suit our clients. This is a great result because every website is different, and every business is different – so it makes sense to only deploy and pay for the resources that your business needs.
