Hosting your WordPress site to ensure it's always fast, available and secured.
What exactly is ‘hosting’?
It is important to know that every website needs hosting, just as it needs a domain name. Hosting refers to a server (similar to a computer), which physically stores all the site webpages, scripts, images, documents and database content of your website. So when you type an address in your web browser, you are actually visiting the server via the domain name, behind an IP address.
So while every website uses a domain name (e.g, a ‘www’ address), it also needs a server to host the files that visitors will see when they arrive. While there are lots of hosting companies on the market, there is a huge variation in the packages they provide; different specifications, features, security measures or monthly limitations such as bandwidth or storage. Servers are also available as shared, dedicated, virtual, cloud-based and running different operating systems such as Windows and Linux.
Help with hosting
Knowing which server type and it’s configuration can be somewhat daunting and confusing – especially for beginners or non-technical people. All my clients are certainly welcome to leave this up to me to organise their website hosting for an monthly fee or budget. I can also help / advise which would be the best hosting companies or servers that I have used and recommend for value, service and support.
