DNS, SSL, FTP, DDoS, VPS… We make web hosting make sense
Web Hosting is you paying or subscribing to a web hosting provider to host your website on their servers. Think of your website as a folder on your computer’s desktop filled with files that represent the pages of your website. If your computer is off you cannot access these files.
If the servers of your hosting provider are not perfectly reliable, your website can go down and be totally inaccessible to potential or existing customers. Key factors to look for from a hosting provider are:
- Bandwidth and storage
- Memory and processing speed
- High uptime and reliability
- Excellent customer support
Webstract has a multitude of options for you to select from when it comes to speed, security, and support. We have our own dedicated servers that are safe, reliable, and fast and we have the ability to set you up on your own virtual private server.
Managed web hosting is only important if you want a secure website
Things like security plugins, firewalls, and website backups are just some of the defenses against cyber attacks you should look for from a hosting provider. Cyber attacks truly have the ability to completely cripple a small business into shutting down if they are not prepared for it.
Any company can be the victim of cyber attacks. According to the National Cyber Security Alliance, about 60% of small businesses that are the victim of these attacks are out of business within six months.
According to the Verizon Data Breach Investigation Report (2019), half of all cyber attacks are against small businesses.
Good web hosting is harder that it seems
Some owners choose to try their hand at hosting by themselves and while we are still here to offer support and direction, this is a demanding and constant task to put on your plate. Professional web hosting involves patches to your OS and software, monitoring website traffic and origins, threat identification and mitigation, and dealing with compliance and reporting. And did we mention the never-ending hardware updates?
