10 WEB HOSTING ESSENTIALS

Currently, there are around 1.14 billion websites in the World according to siteefy.com

What is “Web Hosting”? Simply put, web hosting is needed to get your website online and presented out to the world.

Web hosting is typically provided by web hosts, which are businesses that maintain, configure, and run servers that house websites.

At NT3CH web hosting is one of our passions, we take great pride in offering full hosting solutions with a focus on uptime, performance and search engine optimization (SEO).

WORDPRESS POWERS AROUND 43% OF ALL WEBSITES

NT3CH web hosting packages offer all of the below essentials.

1. UPTIME

We would all love this to be 100% however that’s an impossible target. The majority of hosting providers state a 99.9% uptime, any lower than this could be a cause for concern.

2. SPEED

Page load times are vital to ensure a great user experience and imperative for optimal rankings in search engines.

The platform should be built for performance, like ours which is utilizing Google Cloud infrastructure with multiple custom speed optimizations.

3. STORAGE & BANDWIDTH

You will need sufficient storage space to accommodate all your content and for the best page load times, SSD-based storage is ideal.

Having no bandwidth limitations ensures your viewers will never not be able to navigate to your website.

4. SECURITY

A best-of-breed WAF (Web Application Firewall) that is constantly being reviewed and evolved so that identified-yet-unresolved application vulnerabilities are blocked.

Content delivery network (CDN) to block DDOS attacks while also offering outage protection and performance optimizations.

Included SSL certificates to create trusted secure connections to your website.

5. BACKUPS

If you ever suffer corruption or accidental deletion a solid backup strategy will ensure swift and easy recovery back to a point in time.

6. SUPPORT

Having dedicated support teams will empower you to get access to the experts to resolve your issues ASAP.

7. DOMAINS

Every website needs a domain, ideally a custom one which represents your brand. Having a web host which provides these will make your life easy and offer superior integration to security and CDN offerings.

8. CONTROL PANEL

Being able to control and administer your own website is extremely handy for quick changes. It also allows you to see what’s going on behind the scenes.

9. WEBSITE BUILDER

Don’t know how to write code? No problem with integrated website builders you can do this yourself with a WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) user interface.

10. ADD-ONS

Add-ons will allow you to enhance the features and functions of your website.

With just a few clicks you can install plugins that will suit your needs without having to write a single line of code.
