Web hosting is the technology that allows your website to be online. Just like you’d host a guest in your home, think of website hosting as giving your website a place to stay. Once you or a designer has created all the files for your small-business website, they need to be uploaded to a server so anyone on the internet can access it. From images to copy and maybe even a database, it all has to be stored somewhere and connected to your domain name. Using servers, hosting companies are able to store your website. Your website may share a server with other websites being hosted by the same company, or you may choose to pay for a dedicated server to meet your business needs. When deciding on a web hosting provider, it’s critical to choose reliable services like ours that keep your small business website online all the time with guaranteed 99.9% uptime.
