Having your own web site is something you can do. This will allow you to promote your product or business in a much easier and more extensive way since you are in the world of the internet where everything now happens and if you are out of that world it means that your brand or your business practically does not exist and you are missing of a huge opportunity to take your business to very high levels of performance but probably if you do not have much experience in this you will ask dome works all this, well, the basis of everything is web hosting.
For a page to work and be available to internet users you first need a place for the page to exist. Basically that’s what web hosting is for; it’s a place where all the necessary codes and data for a web page will be stored. These storage sites are called servers that are in simple words, large computers with huge storage spaces.
The owners of these servers are usually transnational companies and to access their servers to have a space to store your web site you have to pay a membership whose rate is defined by the company itself. You can choose monthly or even annual payments. There are many options that you can look for.
- You can save any file you want to be available to users, from simple texts to images, audio and videos.
- Your page can be informative only or you can also make it available for download any file you want.
- The web hosting is not officially classified as a service but it is a huge business that moves millions per year for companies that have the technology to offer web hosting.
There are many types of web hosting that you can access, it is also possible to find a free service but it is extremely limited when compared to the web hosting service in which you have to pay for your membership. Free web hosting sites have too many ads, a very slow upload speed and very limited available storage space. If you want to give a good image to your customers and be attractive to the market, it is better to invest in a quality paid service that has technical support and ensures that all the information you want to place in the cloud will be available without any major setback and so you can provide a high quality service.
There are managed and unmanaged web hosting services, this means that if you hire a service not managed with any company you will only be granted the possibility of connectivity, resources, control panel and the basic tools necessary for your page and contract plan but they will not have the obligation to grant you assistance when there is some type of failure, your page is deconfigured or any other error that is caused by the web application that you execute, for which all this work will fall on you, it will be completely your responsibility.
