Website Hosting: You Get What You Pay For

Do You Know What’s Included in Your Website Hosting Package?

Web hosting is simple, isn’t it? Hosting for a website. What more could you need?
Possibly more that you think….

Opting for the cheapest hosting package you can find might be great for the cash flow but he is what you are likely to get:

  • The Basics

    Basic web hosting can be found cheaply… very cheaply, in fact. Most likely, the cheapest web hosting package will give you somewhere to upload your website’s pages to, with a few images included. If you try to do more than that, for example add a video (and we all know how important video marketing is today… it’s estimated that more than three quarters of internet traffic will come from video by 2022!) you may well find that you run out of space. And what do you do then?

  • High Traffic

    Things become even more challenging if your site becomes massively popular (which is what we aim for here at CMS Live). The server your website is on can easily become overloaded and your site, along with 10,000 other equally underpowered websites, could begin to slow down or face network issues. Taking this one step further, if you go viral, your hosting provider could take your site offline completely to protect the other sites that they host. Not exactly what you need during your moment of glory!

  • Complex and Exciting Websites

    Not to mention that if you want to do anything more advanced than basic pages, your cheap web hosting package probably won’t include the features you need. Scripting and databases, for dynamic site and content-management systems, might be paid add-ons, or simply unavailable from the host altogether. Support for SSL certificates, vital if you want to do anything related to eCommerce, are another commonly omitted feature.

Our hosting packages are different and have been designed with only our clients needs in mind
