Choosing the right company to host your website and business critical applications can be a minefield. There are simply so many options all with such a diverse price range. Often many businesses opt for the first company they come across, without understanding what they are actually receiving in return for their annual subscriptions. But let’s stake a step pack and start from the beginning…

What exactly is web hosting?

Whether a large or small business, an institution or private user, anyone planning on creating an online presence will require the appropriate storage space for their future website. This is where web hosting services come into play: the provision of storage space for a website by a hosting provider (also known as a provider). Such storage space is referred to as web space. The provision of web space on a server (a computer designed for this purpose), as well as providing the necessary network connections, is usually done at a cost. To put it simply: the customers rent web space from a web hosting service provider.

How do I know which web hosting service provider is best for me?

There are a number of factors to take into consideration when choosing your provider. Look for an experienced provider that can offer you a tailor-made service for your web project that, as well as flexible booking options in case the need for system resources increases or decreases.

Your data should be stored among the most secure systems with strict data regulations. The provider you opt for should constantly invest in the security of your data and your IT infrastructure. Pay attention to transparent prices, flexible packages and contractual terms that best suit your needs.

Why does professional web hosting come at a cost?

Powerful IT resources and security measures come at a price and must always be state of the art to protect customers’ technical infrastructure and data effectively. When it comes to ‘free’ web hosting plans, we recommend proceeding with caution. First, check if there are any hidden costs. Secondly, many providers tend to display advertising on their customer websites. Even if the free basic features attract you, necessary functions or additional system resources often need to be purchased later. This ultimately results in your ‘free’ option costing you money.

You can also operate your own server but then you bear the costs of infrastructure, security and maintenance yourself. As an experienced provider with a wide and diverse range of customers, we offer a professional web hosting service at an extremely competitive price, as well as scalable services as required.
