From time to time you may feel the need to give your website a lease of new life. Most will do this with a new design or additional content, but changing your website hosting can provide a lot of benefits across the board.
There is a broad range of variables to consider when creating a ‘good website’. The design is, of course, a vital aspect, which is why you will have undoubtedly spent hours upon hours searching for the perfect theme. Web copy and content are both equally as important because the most fantastic design in the world is useless without the words to back it up.
Then there’s web hosting, a service many people would think is just a case of renting some web space for your site. In reality, website hosting is much, much more, and the benefits that it provides behind the scenes are essential to the success of any site. If your site isn’t currently up to scratch and showing these signs, then it may be time to switch to a more capable web hosting provider.
1. Value for Money
Whether it’s for business purposes, blogging, or just a creative platform for a hobby, a website is a venture that you invest time and funds into. That means that getting your money’s worth is essential.
Here at Cyber Host Pro, we work with a broad range of website owners, all of whom have different technical needs and varying budgets. We fully understand the importance of a business’s budget and getting value for money. This is why we offer a range of different web hosting packages to not only give our customers as much as possible in regard to services but also to make sure that they aren’t forced to overspend for a service that they have no need for.
While it’s essential to stay in the parameters of your budget, buying cheap can end up costing you in the long run. A poor-quality hosting service could lead to technical problems and, if your site experiences downtime, as a business it could also cost you money.
2. Resources of Your Web Hosting Package
Every website is different, with a variety of technical needs that require the right hosting package. For example, if you run a blog that you update a few times a month, you will need a lot less in the way of resources than that of an eCommerce site. Finding the right package to suit your site’s needs is essential for the short-term day-to-day duties, as well as long-term expansion.
If your current hosting plan is causing you problems, then it may be time to upgrade to a package that gives you more in regard to disk space allowance and bandwidth. For your site to fully flourish and make headway it needs to have the capability to do so, which in this case is a high-quality web hosting service. Check out our hosting packages to see what we can do for you.
3. Poor Customer Service
While it may not be in the realms of all things “technical”, the quality of customer services provided by your web hosting provider can have a huge effect on the progress of your site. If you run into any issues that require immediate assistance, or if your site goes down unexpectedly, you need quick and efficient customer service to get things up and running again.
At Cyber Host Pro we have a team of well-trained, knowledgeable hosting experts that are available to help you with any issues you’re having with your site. We understand the importance of a website, especially in the digital era, and having a website that’s down can have a heavy impact on a company’s ability to make money.
4. Security Issues
Cyber security is a very prominent concern in the digital era, costing businesses billions of pounds every year. Not only do hackers have the ability and means to wipe out entire companies, but websites that lack the appropriate protection are just asking for trouble.
Without any anti-virus capabilities to defend your site, you’re leaving yourself wide-open to attack. Compare it to an office or shop: you wouldn’t leave the front door unlocked and open overnight, would you? Another thing you’ll need in place are automated backups (usually daily), so if for some reason an issue occurs — security or otherwise — you’ll be able to recover lost data.
As a web-based company, we fully understand the importance of cyber-security. Our packages include email antivirus and email spam filters, as well as daily backups, to protect you from any attacks or technical issues.
It would be fair to say that a lot of people assume that web hosting has one task: to provide you with the space to create. In truth, it does a lot more. The speed, security, user-friendliness, and the ability to stay online are all thanks to website hosting. If you feel that your current service is lacking and you need a change, then now’s the time to switch.
