Web hosting is the provision of remote server storage space for a website by a hosting provider. Such storage space is referred to as web space. The provision of web space on a server within a data centre, along with all the required connections and allied services, is usually undertaken on a rental style agreement, which can be renewable monthly, annually, or longer.
UK Based Web Hosting
If your business or interest is UK based, it is common sense to have your web hosting provider and data centre servers based in the UK. This reduces the time taken for digital information to travel to the device your potential customer is using. Website speed and response times are now a crucial Google ranking element. Having your web hosting in the UK also keeps your site more secure and compliant with current requirements for GDPR etc.
What Type of Web Hosting Should I Choose?
The type of web hosting you may need is dependent on what you want to use your website for. Simple business websites or personal blogs require far less server resources than ecommerce shops and other intensive web platforms. Simply put, the more visitors and hits you get, the more resources your website will need to handle them. These resources are allocated by your web hosting provider and can usually be scaled up as required.
