How do I choose the right company to host my website?
One of the toughest decisions to make when you are launching a website for your small business is choosing which provider to host your new website. This is made even harder when there is a wide range of different price points between companies that offer exactly the same features. Some cheaper companies will overcrowd servers with thousands of websites resulting in downtime without you even noticing. Should Australian small businesses use hosting that is within Australia or overseas? Caffeinated Marketing will try and break down the complexity of different types of website hosting and help you choose the best plan for your business.
How much resources does my site need?
This is one of the toughest questions to answer. For a well optimised website. even a large E commerce store that has hundreds of visitors per day can run smoothly on only 2 cpu cores, 2gb ram and 10gb of storage. A website that has been poorly put together on un-optimised hosting can suck allocated resources like no tomorrow. This is one of the reasons why it is important to hire an experienced web development company to build your website.
Why Speed Matters.
Our Biggest focus as a web hosting provider is to provide the fastest servers possible to our customers. Generally lower cost ” budget ” hosting companies will over crowd servers with thousands of websites. Unfortunately this can result in websites taking forever to load and turn customers away. 40% of people will leave a website if it takes more than 3 seconds to load, the frustration of your visitors can be compounded by every page taking forever to load. Amazon found that every extra 100ms in load time costs them 1% in sales. Although your website may not have the vast number of visitors that amazon has. Your website can still benefit by being optimised for speed and a high quality hosting provider.
