Deciding where to host your website is not a trivial decision and, as with most things, you do get what you pay for.
There are a number of things to check when deciding on a hosting company:
If you want to make the decision on where to host yourself, we advise you to research your shortlist of hosting companies thoroughly. One can’t always take what a company’s website say at face value, quite often it is an idealised truth and the reality is often far off the mark!
There are however a number of independent and reliable review websites1, where customers of hosting companies can post their gripes or praise. We suggest you look at several of these sites in order to distill the truth. But beware: we’ve seen one such website with glowing reviews for a particular hosting company, only to discover later that the site was in fact sponsored by that hosting company!
A word about scripting or programming support: The majority of modern websites rely on at least some sort of programming and although most hosting packages offer this facility, it usually comes in two flavours and you need to choose between these:
If you don’t know anything about scripting, we advise you to speak with your website design company first to establish what they prefer. We endorse the open source4 philosophy and recommend our clients to choose a Linux solution.
For the UK, we recommend Seiretto5, a small company backed by big players, with a service and support record second to none. We use them and are very happy with their service.
If you’re uncomfortable negotiating the hosting maze, we can provide you with managed hosting or set up a hosting agreement with your preferred supplier for a small fee.
With your domain6 names and hosting taken care of, it's time to design7 and publish your website!
