When you own a website, it has to be hosted somewhere so that all of the files are available on the world wide web. There are many types of hosting, and thousands of hosting providers who can help you do this, but is yours doing its job as well as it could be? It’s often easy to overlook the quality of your hosting because…as long as my website is available on the internet, that’s all that matters…right? As you can tell from the title, that’s not exactly the case, in fact, far from it! So why is good web hosting quality important?Contact Us
Faster Response Times
Whenever somebody wants to use your website, they’ll click a link and your page will begin to load. However it only starts to load after the hosting server has received the request and responded – so the response time essentially controls how fast your page can start to load.
Standard hosting can often have response times of up to 1-2 seconds, which in the internet world is incredibly slow! A great website host will have response times of well under 200ms, allowing your site to be much faster on initial load and preventing users from leaving as a result of waiting time.Contact Us
Over 30,000 websites are successfully hacked every single day, often stealing customer or company data and destroying the use of the website. Keeping your website safe is paramount, and one of the best ways to do so is with a good quality host.
Different web hosts use different software and security measures in order to protect their sites. Shared hosting servers are considered weak in terms of security, whereas high quality dedicated servers are much more effective at preventing widespread threats. Premium hosting providers will also create network-level firewalls which keep your site protected from attacks, and will carry out frequent, in-depth malware scans.Contact Us
Better Overall Load Speeds
The speed of your entire website is one of the most influential factors when it comes to keeping your users onboard. For every extra second that they have to wait, your conversion rates drop by an average of 4.42%! How can you keep your website lightning fast? You guessed it – better hosting!
Premium dedicated hosting servers are able to serve up each page rapidly and massively reduce the load time versus low quality shared hosts. It’ll help you to provide a better user experience that will result in more conversions and happier customers!Contact Us
Low quality or shared hosting servers are prone to going down – with the high quantity of websites on their shared servers and weaker software, problems are more likely to occur and will result in downtime. Your website stops working and isn’t available to users.
This could cost you valuable sales that you may never be able to recover – after all, 42% users who have a poor website experience will never return! High quality hosting providers have virtually no downtime thanks to their reliable dedicated servers that focus on keeping your website live. Always.Contact Us
Every business wants to rank highly for key search terms that help them to land more customers, but it’s not always that simple. Even if you’ve optimised your pages perfectly for your target keywords, you could still struggle to reach page one without a great host.
Google ranks your site on how well it can provide users with a solution and one of these factors is site speed. As already mentioned, premium hosting can be a massive contributor to faster load and response times, so it can help you rank higher for those all-important keywords.Contact Us
Isn’t it nice to know you’re in good hands, especially in the unfortunate event that something does go wrong? With poor web hosting services, you often won’t receive any real support. If something goes wrong, or you’d like to change something then you’ve got to sort that out yourself.

You’ll be free from the stress of solving complex problems on your own that could make the difference between your site working or crashing!Contact Us
