Three ways great website hosting can help your business thrive

Website hosting is something most business owners give very little thought to. After all, if your website is live, that’s all that matters, right? Well, that’s not strictly true. It doesn’t matter if you’re a sole trader, freelancer or you employ 500 people, if you rely on your website for leads and sales, your website hosting is important. That’s because great website hosting impacts several factors that can impact the visibility, user experience and security of your site. In this article from Black Nova Designs, we’re going to look at those factors so that you can decide if you need to reconsider your website host. Let’s kick off with a very quick look at what website hosting is!

What is website hosting

Put simply, website hosting is the service that makes a website visible on the internet. Without website hosting, your website would be invisible to the millions of people using the internet at any given moment. There’s a more technical explanation which explains how a website is composed of files (images, copy, coding) that need to be stored on a server, and that website hosts own those servers, but let’s keep it simple for now: web hosting makes your site visible to all the potential customers out there.

Three way great website hosting boosts your business

1. Fast loading
If you’re lucky to have high-quality hosting, your website should load quickly and reliably. If your website host isn’t providing a great service, your site might be sluggish to load, and some pages might not load at all. That matters because fast loading times improve user experience, reduce bounce rates and increase the likelihood of visitors staying on your site longer. That leads to higher engagement and conversions, so your website is working harder for you!

2. Enhanced Security
A reputable web hosting provider will offer robust security measures to protect your website from cyber threats such as malware, hacking attempts and data breaches. Given that cyber-attacks can dent a business’s reputation in days and/or result in your site being offline for long periods of time, that’s a business must-have.

3. Reliable Uptime
Reliable hosting comes with an up-time guarantee, ensuring that your website is accessible to users pretty much around the clock. That minimal downtime means fewer disruptions to your business operations and a digital shop front that’s always open for visitors to learn more about you.

At Black Nova Designs we’re proud to offer fast, secure website hosting with UK-based support. You’ll benefit from all reliability, fast website loading and excellent security, and one important extra feature.
