First things first, what exactly is hosting? Well, simply put, hosting, or web hosting, is a service you need to store data and make your website accessible online.
Hosting is a service you buy from a company. To make the best decision possible, you have to understand what various hosting packages contain and how they affect your site. In some cases, this includes only the bare minimum, really just a publicly accessible place to store your website online. Other packages may include features that include security, performance, and general site management.
To be accessible online, every website needs both hosting and a domain. Hosting is like the building you rent to house your business where the domain is like the sign that goes on the front. We host all our websites on our server and manage them for you.
Why is this important? While you CAN buy your own hosting from a lot of different places, there are things you might not necessarily get. These in include regular backups, website updates, security and hack prevention, SSL security certificate, and the ability to call us if you see something that doesn't belong or function correctly. We keep the stress of website maintenance on us so that you can focus on running your business!
