So now you have your domain name, where are you going to host it? Well, once again, there are a few common pitfalls that people fall into, so again, our advice is - to seek advice … before you sign anything. Ideally, the person to ask for advice about hosting would be your web designer, simply because he has created it and he should know what the server needs to ensure the website performs as it should. We regularly come across small businesses that have paid good money for a good website only to come unstuck when their server can’t cope with the load or support languages or platforms upon which the website is based. Besides selecting a server that is equipped to handle your website, you also need to consider things like access, security and reliability – take a look at their redundancy capabilities (if you are planning to host you website outside of your company) and make sure things like data are backed up regularly and securely.
A lot to take in we know – but guess what? Advice on domains and hosting is free when you pick Saxon Websites™ to develop your website. We can walk you through the entire process quite painlessly, so no need to worry. Over the years, we have gained quite a bit of experience in choosing the right domain and selecting a hosting company – we can even help you set up your own server in order to host the website yourself … we have a number of Microsoft Certified Professionals
