Before we tell you why you should choose us as your ‘Web Hosting Company’ in South Africa, let us first understand what Web Hosting is & why is it important to choose the right company for hosting your Website.

So, what exactly is ‘Web Hosting’? Simply put, ‘Web Hosting’ is a service that makes your website available to your users. Once you have developed your website, you would require to ensure that your website is available to the users globally 24 X 7. This essentially means that your website should be continuously running on a computer that is connected to the Internet so that any user from any part of the world can access your website at any time of the day. You have two primary options for doing this:

1) Host the website yourself – Hosting your website by yourself means that you will put all the data related to your website on your computer that is connected to the Internet permanently and you have configured a web server. There are a few glitches to this idea. Firstly, not all Internet Service Providers (ISPs) allow this type of continuous internet usage. Secondly, anyone who would like to host their website on their own would also require a set of technical skills to be able to manage & configure a web server, firewall setup, virus protection, patch management, etc. which may not be the case for everyone. Due to these reasons, most people prefer to go for Option-2, i.e. hire the services of a third party for their web hosting requirements.

2) Find a Web Hosting Company to host your website – This is the most commonly used approach for hosting your website. Hire a good Hosting Company to ensure that you do not have to worry about your IT infrastructure or the technical skills required to keep your website virus-free & online 24 X 7 as they will monitor it for you.

A good web hosting company should provide the following services as a minimum:
* 24 X 7 technical support
* 24 X 7 FTP access for updating your website
* Email accounts, i.e. yourName@yourDomain.com
* Online control panel to manage your website
* Online traffic statistics for you to analyse the traffic data for your website
* A robust database management system, such as My SQL or MS SQL so that you can add your own database if required.

Different Web Hosting Companies provide different options for hosting your websites. You can choose a package (server type & space) that suits your requirement the best. The most common server options available are:
* Linux Server Hosting
* Windows Server Hosting
* Cloud Server Hosting

Choosing a good web hosting company is imperative because if you choose a company that makes a lot of promises, but is unable to ensure nearly 100% up-time of your website, there is a high chance of you losing out on the traffic & hence the business that you would be able to generate through your website.
