Web Hosting Services
Are you a start-up looking to create a website to showcase your company and its product online? Or perhaps you’re a long-standing business that’s yet to establish yourself online? Either way, if you’re new to the world of creating websites then you might be asking yourself just what exactly ‘web hosting’ is. Essentially, it is a service that makes your website available to your customers at any time.
This is the general intention of websites – to be viewed by anyone on the Internet at any time. In order for this to be the case, you need to ensure that your website is running on a computer which is connected to the Internet on a 24/7 basis. Here at Get Manic we are able to provide a reliable, affordable web hosting service to suit your requirements.
Forget Hosting your Website Yourself
Of course, the option is there to host your website yourself. However, few people do their own website hosting and this is the case for a number of reasons. Firstly, hosting the website yourself means that you will need to have the right equipment, including a web server (a piece of software that enables a website to be viewed using HTTP). Secondly, you’ll require a permanent connection to the Internet.
You’ll also need to have web administration skills such as the ability to manage and configure a web server and knowledge of patch management, firewalls and virus protection. Plus, your Internet Service Provider (ISP) may not even allow this type of usage. Even if you do have the necessary skills and equipment, it makes better sense to use a third party who’s able to monitor the website on a 24/7 basis. Here at Get Manic we’re on hand to do just that.
Benefits of Using a Web Hosting Provider
The most common choice for web hosting is to use a third party hosting provider. There are a number of benefits to using a web hosting provider like Get Manic. One of the biggest advantages is that we provide 24/7 support. This means that whenever you have a problem or issue with your website we’re on hand to help. This is important for businesses who can’t afford for any website downtime.
Of course, if your website’s down, you’re losing potential business and this is simply a disaster for any company looking to compete in a fierce marketplace where online shoppers have their pick of retailers and suppliers. Get Manic will also provide you with 24/7 FTP access in order that you can update your website whenever you choose. This, together with an online control panel for managing your website ensures that you have a high level of control over your website.
