Put simply, website hosting is where your website lives. In many cases the choice of where to host your website can be overwhelming. You can have your website hosted in very large datacenters or on an old computer in a basement. As a business owner it is not your responsibility to understand the details of website hosting, however it's important to understand the basics so you are not fooled buy cheap website companies.
Our Townsville web design gurus make it nice and simple for you to decide. Option one, we look after all of the hosting for you and you have peace of mind that it is hosted in a data center also used by Microsoft and Telstra. Option 2, once the website is complete we can pick it up and put it wherever you like. In most cases option two has more risk because managing a webhost is very complex and should be left to specialists. We have also done countless hours of research into webhosts and we know which ones work and which ones don't. You might think that where the website lives doesn't really matter as long as everyone in the world can see it, however this is not the case. Research shows that if your website takes more than two seconds to open you could lose up to 20% of your visitors. We have taken this and many other variables into account when we decide on where is best to put your website and rest assured that you along with all of our other customers are hosted in the data center where it's secure and seriously fast.
So to put it simply we look after all the infrastructure and web hosting for you, but should you have any questions our team love to talk tech so we would be more than happy to have a detailed conversation about this.
