It’s common knowledge that whatever field you are planning on launching a business in you need to also have a website.
First of all, it represents your online presence which in our current situation can be oftentimes more important than your physical one.
Secondly, it gives you the opportunity to have a bigger reach when it comes to gathering new prospects and customers, which is always a good thing.
Lastly, if you are not online… then where are you really?
Now that we have that out of the way, besides the formalities of owning an actual website, have you ever stopped and pondered about the technical side of having one? You know… like how does it actually work?
I mean in order for your customers to access your website it needs to be first of all “accessible” and by that, I mean that it needs to be hosted on the internet somewhere which also means that there must be a computer constantly connected to the internet in order to keep your website constantly connected to the internet, and besides always being on and connected to the internet it needs fast and reliable speeds, and it also needs to be close to your customers in order to reduce that latency between servers.
So what you need is a server, because that will do the job, but how do you exactly get or make one?
Well, you’ve basically got 2 options.
Setting your own computer as a web hosting server.
The first one that you might think of is setting up your own computer as a server, although this may look like an affordable and easy option let me assure you that is far from being true.
Firstly, remember that your computer would need to be powered 24/7 and that can add up to a pretty big electricity bill, on top of that any internet instability or slowdown would cause your website to become unavailable.
Secondly, setting up a server can get tricky, do you really want to deal with all the IP addresses, DNS records, or SQL databases? No, you don’t, trust me on that!
Thirdly, location is a pretty important thing and if you are located in Europe and your target audience is in Asia, and you are hosting your website on your own computer, there might be some latency problems and you can say goodbye to a big portion of your revenues.
Now, this brings me up to a great point, internet speed and its advantages.
Let’s talk a little about one of the many important factors you should consider when searching for the right host. Quick fact, did you know that 60% of people will abandon a website that takes more than 3 seconds to load, having a fast page load time is essential for any site, especially business ones. Our generation’s attention span is so low, that any action that takes a bit longer than expected is automatically skipped. That 60% percentage is only increasing as younger generations turn into customers, their expectations are high and attention span low so they are a pretty tough crowd.
Having a slow site can result in both lower revenue and rankings, you have probably noticed how some websites are just slow and how annoying that can be. Now imagine that would be your website, you wouldn’t want that, would you?
This brings me to our next option.
