What is Website Hosting?
Web hosting is a service provided by Agile Digital Strategy (the web host) that sell or lease space on a server where you store the files (HTML, CSS, PHP, Images, WordPress Installtion etc.) that make your website accessible on the internet. Hosting is where the physical files for your website are stored.
If you’re planning on creating an online presence for your business, having a reliable web hosting plan is essential. Having dedicated hosting when building a website will ensure that your webpage will continue to run to the best of its ability. We have dedicated servers that provide technical support to all hosting accounts.
We can provide hosting packages to specific businesses needs. The plan you choose will depend primarily on how you plan to use your website and how much you have budgeted for hosting. Get in touch with Agile Digital Strategy today if you have any questions about our types of website hosting.
Our website hosting is suitable for brochure websites and low traffic ecommerce websites.
Short for “Virtual Private Server,” VPS hosting is significantly more robust, offering tons of features you won’t find with shared hosting. While you technically still share a server, you get a dedicated slice of it that’s just for your website. You have your own dedicated CPanel with your own individual space and memory allocation.
The majority of web designers just offer Shared hosting where they cram as many websites as possible onto the same resources. We belive that this method may have been fruitful in the past, we the reliance on speed nowadays, it no longer meets the mustard!
Perhaps the biggest issue with shared hosting is its inherent limitations on performance. Since you’re sharing a server with multiple websites, resources can become scarce.
For instance, a site using shared hosting doesn’t usually have the bandwidth to accommodate a high volume of traffic. If a page on your site goes viral and experiences a major surge in traffic, this could affect your site’s performance. An added issue is that your site can potentially be impacted by other sites in your server.
Benefits of VPS Website Hosting
This is why we only offer VPS hosting. First and foremost, you get dramatically more space and bandwidth with VPS website hosting. This is essential if you plan to generate a lot of traffic or if you anticipate considerable growth in the future.
A VPS solution offers all of the power you need for optimal performance, regardless of traffic volume. Thanks to its high-performance components, you can rest assured that your site will always have access to needed resources, helping it operate at a high level.
This ensures two important things – stability and reliability, which greatly reduce or even eliminate the threat of downtime.
