Website Hosting Server

When most people talk about website development, they tend to think about everything that goes into building the website and how users will interact with content. However, what is commonly overlooked after the website has been designed, is where the website will be hosted. 

If you have ever owned your own website, then you are familiar with the services of a website hosting provider. Even if you have never purchased a domain name for a website, you may still be aware of the importance of website hosting. For those who are unfamiliar with what website hosting is, knowing the importance of website hosting may help you later on if you ever need to host your own website.

Regardless of your knowledge of website hosting, knowing which website hosting provider is right for your business may determine the success of your website.

How Does Website Hosting Work?

First, let’s take a look at where websites are actually hosted…in order for your website to be visible to the internet, you must host your website through a website hosting provider. As you can imagine, there are endless options for website hosting providers as there are many larger companies, as well as independent hosting providers for you to choose from. Regardless of which hosting provider you choose to host your website, hosting providers allow your website to be accessed on the Internet.

These website hosting companies store the information of a website on a high-powered computer called a server. Servers are connected to a network of other computers which allows the website information to be directed to users. When a user searches the website address, the website hosting provider will connect the user’s computer to the server where the website is stored, allowing them to view the contents of the website.

As basic as this task may sound, determining what is the best website hosting provider option for your site may be more difficult than you think – after all, there are hundreds of options for you to choose from.

With so many options how do you determine which website hosting provider is best for you?

Benefits of White Glove Hosting

In a recent blog, I go into the differences between self-managed hosting and white glove hosting providers. However, to summarize, self-managed hosting is a good option for somebody who doesn’t make many changes to their website. White Glove hosting providers offer more robust web care support and the flexibility to customize content update schedules for your website.

Regardless, both self-managed and white glove hosting providers will manage the server that your website is hosted on. For example, Prositely is a white-glove hosting provider and we host our clients’ websites through Amazon Lightsail; a virtual private hosting server offered by Amazon Web Services. Larger self-managed hosting providers generally have their own designated company servers that they use to host their clients’ websites. 

Although these larger hosting providers like GoDaddy and BlueHost offer the cheapest website hosting services to users, they are not necessarily the best option if you plan to make frequent changes or require a more personalized experience. By entrusting a white glove hosting provider like Prositely for your website hosting needs, we guarantee that our team will customize a strategy unique to your website; ensuring that your website will integrate seamlessly, launch successfully, & perform at its peak on a daily basis. 

In addition to peace of mind, Prositely also offers a personalized relationship that you do not receive from larger hosting providers like GoDaddy. We take pride in the fact that we are only a phone call or email away; so you know if you do contact us with any site issues, you won’t have to jump through the hoops of an automated call center! 

So regardless of where your website is hosted, make sure that your website is getting the care that it truly deserves!
