Website hosting is probably the first thing you will hear when you are interested in getting a website, because that is one of the most important components.
Unfortunately this is the one thing people neglect. People usually want the cheapest or easiest, you need to get the best for your website. I think when you’re making the big step into the online world, you need to get hosting that suits your website.
If your hosting is on a windows server and website is written in php(a linux language) , they will be in constant conflict and nobody will be able to access your site. This is bad for business all round. If a client suddenly cannot find your site, he might imagine all sorts of bad things.
When looking for website storage it is always a good idea to ask your website developer what kind of hosting do you need. How much space do you need?
How much traffic does your site have? Where should I host? These are cardinal questions that should be asked. Your website developer will probably be able to assist you with where, because as developers we get to work with all the hosting companies.
We know what kind of Consoles they are using to manage the data, we also know how cost effective they are.
Website hosting in my eyes are as important as finding the right website developer. If you have a great developer, but the way you store your website is not right for your website, your site will fail. If you have great hosting, but not so good website developer your site will also fail.
In short you need good website storage to have a successful website. You also need to speak with your website developer before getting hosting. Otherwise you will pay for hosting that will not work with your website.
