What is Web Hosting?

Web Hosting

Web hosting or website hosting ensures that the website is online. Compare it to a house you buy to live in. Without a house you are homeless and without web hosting, there is no website.

Without web hosting, your website is not online and not findable for your target group. Nowadays search engines find it very important that a website is fast and does not have any downtime. It is therefore also important to look for a reliable hosting provider. You can even host your own website, by means of a server at home. However, we recommend that you look for a reliable location for your server.

A reliable location often has an emergency power supply, security and service on location. Usually the risks in a data center are as good as possible excluded and everything is done to prevent fire and/or burglaries. It is also useful to choose a server that automatically makes backups.

Web Hosting and Domain

The web hosting links the domain name to the web. So with only a domain name you can’t really do anything. Often you can buy a domain name and hosting as a package, which is usually cheaper than ordering it separately. Do you already have a domain name, but no hosting? Then you can link this with a hosting. You can also run multiple domain names on one hosting package. This is done by means of a link to the main domain.

Hosting packages

With the more extensive packages, it is often possible to build multiple websites next to each other and use them on one hosting. With the smaller simple (and often cheaper) hosting packages, only a link to the main domain is possible. These types of links are useful to forward domain names that look very much like the main domain. These types of links are useful for ease of use and to exclude errors. SEO technically, these types of domain names have no added value these days.

Web hosting features

As soon as you start using web hosting, you have to take a number of things into account: for example, you can use web hosting to create unique e-mail addresses that belong to your domain. This is often more professional than the standard e-mail addresses (hotmail.com / gmail.com).

If you would like to use a CMS system (content Management System) on your website or another system that requires a database, you should also take this into account. There are hosting parties that charge a small amount per database, but for most parties this is now included in the package. If you are going to use WordPress as your CMS, it is advisable to look for special WP hosting plans. This type of web hosting is configured for WordPress website, and often has several benefits or time savings.

Moving to another Web Hosting

If you want to move a website from one hosting party to another, you can do this with an authorization code, also often called a moving token. The moving token or authorization code can be requested from the current hosting party and must be filled in at the new party.

Have been working with Ken and Michelle at FML marketing for the best part of a year now - they're a fantastic team. We've launched two new websites, 3 marketing campaigns across all social media platforms and created endless amount of additional marketing collateral like videos and infographics with their help. The communication has been fantastic, and there's hasn't been a single idea that we haven't been able to successfully implement without their help. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a creative, professional service.
