Web Hosting Services for Startups

Giving your business an online presence is crucial. Your business’ website elevates your credibility and is a valuable marketing tool to showcase your products or services. To get your website up and running, you’ll need a web hosting provider. Their job is to provide a server to store your website’s files and make it accessible online. They’ll also supply you with a domain name - with BSC, your domain is only £7.50 for the first year!

Comparing web hosting packages

When searching for web hosting in the UK, you’ve likely come across endless providers and services which can make it tricky to compare them. Finding a provider you can rely on is crucial - after all, if your customers can’t find you online they’re unlikely to convert offline. 

When comparing web hosting services, it can be helpful to consider the following factors so you know what good service looks like: 

Uptime Guarantees

Make sure you know what your web hosting provider’s uptime guarantee is. This is their promise that they won’t dip below a certain amount of downtime every month. Should your site be down longer than this, they’re likely to offer you an incentive such as a free month’s service. 

SSLs

Make sure your web hosting provider provides you with an SSL certificate (Secure Socket Layer). An SSL certificate enables an encrypted connection and authenticates your site’s identity. By using encryption algorithms, it prevents hackers from reading your sensitive data. Many web hosting providers will include your SSL certificate for free to keep your website secure.

Bandwidth

You’ll need to decide how much bandwidth your business’ website needs. In simple terms, your bandwidth is your site’s ability to handle traffic. The more bandwidth you have to play with, the more visitors your site can handle without crashing! This can significantly impact user experience, so make sure you choose a host that offers enough bandwidth for your needs.

Domains

You can think of your domain as your digital business address - it directs people to your site’s location. Many hosting providers will come with a free domain.

Why does your web hosting matter?

You could spend significant money on your impressive, new website but without a stable and reliable hosting package, all your hard work could effectively go to waste.

Here are just some of the reasons why your choice of web hosting matters:
