So you’ve got your Brand New Site all Designed and Developed, and you’re ready to make it live. Well, first of all, congratulations! Secondly, where are you going to Host it?
“Hosting” is a service that stores your Website or Online Stores’ data on a “Server”. You are paying for a certain amount of space to use that Server to keep your files there. When someone types in your Domain Name, the internet then connects them to the files on this Server and brings up your Site. The Server itself is a specialised computer. You can’t host your Website in an offline database, otherwise there’s no way of connecting Customers trying to view your Site. To buy your own Server costs thousands and thousands of dollars, so it is much more cost effective to pay for space on an existing Server of a trusted company.
But the most important thing to consider when purchasing Hosting Services is the support that comes along with it. You also want Support Services with your Hosting Services, otherwise you’re essentially paying for dead space. If something goes wrong, no one is there to help.
