Choosing the perfect web hosting plan can make a world of difference to your website. Without it, there’s a risk of having a website that loads slowly, which will ruin your rankings as well as your relationship with customers. Read on for our top 4 advantages of using web hosting services.
Your site performance will improve
Your site performance is key to your online success. The reason? You only have a couple of seconds to capture the attention of your visitor before they leave and never return. If your website takes a long time to load, then your search engine rankings will be impacted as your site will not measure well in user experience metrics.
Incredible technical support
If you’re offering any services or products through your website, then your customer support needs to be of an excellent standard. If you don’t have the technical skills and your site breaks down, every moment offline will cost you more and more sales. With a hosting provider, you don’t have to worry about this. Their support staff will quickly bring your site back online following any issues.
Improved website security
Website owners should always consider website security. Not only for your data but also for your customers who share their personal and bank details on your site. This is where a host service provider comes in. A host service provider will have a physical data centre, firewall protection, and security measures to stop other sites from using your server. You can even install spam software and security plug-ins to increase your existing security.
High uptime and reliability
Uptime refers to how often your site is online. While you may want it online all the time, most host service providers have a clause that states the percentage that your site will be online. For many web hosting companies, this is 99.9%. The small percentage of the time that your site is offline is when updates and server repairs take place.
