In today’s post our author Lucas Johnson covers some of Aussie Hosting’s hosts. For the last twenty years, Johnson has been reviewing and testing various servers throughout Australia to help people find the best quality info.
Today he wants to cover the top kinds of hosts for any new business looking to up their online footprint and make money via their website.
Business Hosting in Australia
Business hosting in the land down under is like anywhere else. You’ll need a quality host that isn’t absolute garbage, one that can get you results and stay connected all the time. What you need to look out for is downtime and uptime. Downtime is the amount of time a server spends “down” or unable to be accessed. Uptime is the amount of time a server is up and accesible by web visitors.
To any business a down website looks extremely unprofessional and also you’ll lose sales. Without a stable platform to operate your business on there is no possible way you’ll be able to maintain your business’s online integrity.
Ecommerce sites also run into the same issue as small business hosting. You’ll need a web host that is stable and doesn’t go down rom time to time. A lot of newer online vendors tend to choose cheaper ecom solutions which I wouldn’t recommend.
It’s important to think that ecom businesses involve tons of images. Images are big and often require a lot more space on the server. More space = slower times. This is why getting a fast hosting company is imperative.
Now this is what i recommend for any Australian looking to get web hosting in either Sydney, Camberra or Melbourne. You will get a host that is not only fast but very reliable. It will also decrease the cost of the hosting by a significant amount as well.
Think of shared hosting like an apartment building. The building itself is the host with multiple units sharing the same area together. This is the same way that shared hosting works, people can share the space together instead of keeping the entire unit to themselves. It’s basically sharing for web resources.
Don’t Get a Cheap Host!
I advise anyone who is looking to get a website server to AVOID cheap hosting. In the end you’ll end up getting bad service and have to pay a ton of money in upsells and other modifications. If you ever have to shift your server elsewhere you’ll also be paying a ton for switching fees.
My Final Thoughts
Getting a new host should be something that you spend some time and energy considering. I wouldn’t suggest going for the first option that comes up. Take your time and do your research and make sure that you whatever host you use will be one that is great quality for you and your customers.
