Web hosting is a vital service for website management that allows businesses to publish a website or web page onto the Internet. A web host, or web hosting service provider, is a service that provides the technologies and services needed for the website or webpage to be viewed on the Internet. Websites are hosted, or stored, on special computers called servers. When Internet users want to view your website, all they need to do is type your website address into their browser and the businesses web files will be served up for viewing. Their computer will then connect to the server and the webpages will be delivered to them through the browser.
Does The Quality Of Hosting Matter?
While on the surface you may not notice the difference between a quality server and a discount server the goal of your website is to capture traffic that drives. A slow server may cost you valuable search engine traffic if the site is to slow to load. Most hosts don’t upgrade the server automatically which means unless you go through the process to upgrade yourself you can get stuck on old server space that is slow and outdated. Our focus is to always keep our Digital Red Zone Hosting clients on the most up to date server year after year. When we upgrade our sites to a faster machine we don’t nickel and dime you for an upgrade fee.
Think of you hosting like the engine of your car. You can have a site that looks like a Ferrari but because it doesn't have the engine it drives like a 4 cylinder pick up truck which means your customers aren’t going use it.
