Tips & Resources

Hosting & Registration

Hosting

As the proprietor of an online business, you need to make some important choices about hosting your website and in order for your website to appear on the internet you need a web server. Owning a web server can be very expensive and requires technical expertise and budget that most businesses don’t have. This is where web hosts or ISPs (Internet Service Providers) come in.

 

Hosting companies provide the equipment and other technical resources you need without the pain and expense of having to do it yourself. A dedicated server is one in which the entire server is dedicated to your web pages. Although it means there will be no other users draining your resources it also means you will pay a considerable monthly sum.  The norm for most businesses is a shared server solution which is much cheaper, but as the name implies, you will be sharing the server and its resources with many others.
