Web Hosting

 

Here you will find out many reasons why you should invest in good web hosting. Below outlines not only the good points about effective web hosting but also the drawbacks of poor web hosting. Read this to find out how to make your online presence more appealing to potential customers.

 

Decrease Website Load Times

 

When potential customers click on your website, they don’t want to wait for the page to load. Studies suggest that the average customer will wait for no longer than two seconds when waiting for a page to load. Having adequate web hosting will keep customers on the site to make the purchases you need. Having a more responsive website will make the business seem more professional and trustworthy.

Better Security

 

Speaking of trust, security is very important these days with more people understanding the ramifications of poor data management. A good web hosting service will help you on your way to enabling HTTPS. Having SSL (Secure Socket Layers) for your site is a must. This means that all sensitive data that passes through your site will be encrypted. Any hackers that try to get into your site won’t be able to get to your data.

Website Down Time

 

If you have poor web hosting, the website is more likely to have downtime. First

impressions matter and if a customer visits during downtime they are unlikely

to return. Better web hosting will minimise the downtime as best they can.

 

Business Email

 

Many web hosting services will have an option to provide the business with emails

utilising their business name such as ‘[email protected]’. This makes the

business look more professional by using a business email.

 

WordPress Support

 

WordPress is used in some variation by more than a quarter of websites worldwide. It is a very convenient piece of software to have. It can help with many kinds of website whether it is a blog, online store or commercial site. Most of the time it is included in the web hosting package you purchase. 

Local Servers

 

If your business is located in the UK, you will want web hosting from a UK located

business. This will make the website more responsive when transferring data.

Even though international data transfer has got faster over the years, having a

local host will maximise efficiency by preventing lag for the customers and

improving overall speed. If the servers that you have hosted are local,

help will always be on hand. If you have international servers, if and when

your servers become faulty; it could be outside of their business hours. 

If you are going to be transmitting data through this server, you will want to make sure that the data doesn’t leave the UK. If data does leave the UK, it will complicate matters when dealing with GDPR. Any data that leaves the UK needs a pass from UK GDPR. This is why you need to be careful when selecting your web host.
