20 Feb What You Need to Know About Hosting
Finding the right hosting platform is essential to a successful website. If your host isn’t reliable, secure, or efficient, you will run into problems. Social Spice Media offers a couple of different hosting packages, but before we tell you more information about them, we want you to understand a few things about hosting.
Efficiency is key to success
If your host is reliable and you know you can count on them, then chances are when something goes wrong with your website, they’ll be able to get it up and running properly without taking days. You can’t sell to your customers or pick up new clients if they can’t successfully navigate to your page. An unreliable host makes for an unreliable website, which unfortunately means you could lose business and customers.
Reliability is a no-brainer
You need to be able to rely on your host and know that they’re dedicated to doing their job so you can do yours. It’s your job to operate your business, which means you shouldn’t feel the need to constantly be checking your website to make sure it’s working. A good host holds themselves accountable so you can do what you do best.
Your search ranking could suffer
You want to be on the first page of Google and within the top spots so searchers can easily find you. We’ve blogged about how second place search results
could affect your business, which means choosing the right host is more important for your search ranking than you may think. If your website is constantly down and not working, then your search ranking will be affected. Some web experts have been saying that slow speeds can also affect your SEO. We think it makes perfect sense; no one wants to spend time on a slow website. Google helps users discover pages that work well in placing them higher.
Because your website host can affect SEO, how your site performs, and much more, it’s crucial to consider how this can affect your business’s reputation. With a consistently slow website notorious for it’s unresponsiveness and downtime, your company’s reputation could directly be affected. You want your company to be seen as reliable and know that your customers can peruse your website without difficulty. A bonus tip from Social Spice: another excellent element to add to your website that will bolster your reputation is a testimonials page.
Room to grow
Even if you’re a small business or startup, we think it’s safe to say you’ll want to experience growth in the future. Whether it’s the scope of your business that changes or the size of your company, your host should be able to accommodate your business’s needs. With increases in traffic to your site and the need to expand, scalability is quite important. Find a host that won’t be baffled when you tell them you need to make big changes.
It shouldn’t solely be about cost
We understand that, as a business owner, you need to consider costs. We also want you to understand that sometimes offers from other companies are too good to be true. You may not receive the best quality or work ethic depending on the price. We’re firm believers in “you get what you pay for,” which is why we strive to be dedicated, reliable, and efficient when it comes to doing our job.
