Why is Good Web Hosting So Important?

by | Jun 18, 2021 | Advice | 0 comments

As a design-lead digital company, we understand the importance of making everything that appears on a screen look as good as it possibly can. However, something that we also understand – and give as much thought to – is the digital backroom; with web hosting being a key component.

What is Web Hosting?

Every website that you have ever visited is being hosted on a server. When a website is created, it is basically a number of different files – images, coding etc – and these files need to be stored somewhere. Generally, customers pay a monthly web hosting fee to ‘host’ these files on their server, meaning the files – your website – is available 24/7 for people to find.

As well as hosting the files that make up your website, a web host is also responsible for regular remote backups, website maintenance, plugin updates, general troubleshooting and more – all of this is in order to ensure optimum performance from your website.

The Reasons for a Good Host

On seeing everything that a host does when hosting your website, it quickly becomes apparent why a good host is important. But how will a good host benefit your site directly?

  • Optimise website load time – Web users are generally impatient. The faster your site loads, the more likely prospective customers will stay
  • Better Security – The last thing you want is sensitive information leaking from your website
  • Increased Website Uptime – Website uptime is the percentage of time a website is available. Website ‘downtime’ can leave your site unavailable for periods of time, which is something nobody wants
  • Backing Up – Things do go wrong! A good web host will have everything securely backed up, meaning after an attack, or other issues, everything can be restored
