For your business to have an online face, you need a name and address (domain) and a virtual space to keep all the content—the images, videos, text, forms, downloads, client data, etc.—that users see or access. That virtual space is where hosting comes in. provides hosting service and manages service for websites hosted by other companies. No matter where your online content is kept, helps you keep it secure, backed up and easily accessible.

What Is a Website Host

A website host is a company that provides the virtual space—i.e., storage—for all the files you need to create and maintain a live website. For a fixed monthly fee, hosts allocate space on their servers to save (and access) the files that make up your website—your content management system and actual data files.


In theory, any company could host its own website—all you need is a server. But server maintenance is costly in terms of time and money. Hosting service, on the other hand, may cost only a few dollars per month.

How to Choose a Website Host

There are dozens of hosting companies, but not all of them may be a good fit for your company’s website. In order to find the best host, you need to consider:

  • Security—you need a host that safeguards your website from hacks
  • Up-time—you need a website host that can prove they have a solid infrastructure and redundancy so that you do not suffer frequent and/or lengthy outages
  • CMS support—you need a website host that supports your preferred content management system (if applicable)

You also need to consider cost and value. Looking only for the lowest monthly rate could result in choosing a hosting provider with limited capabilities or one that delivers poor customer service.
