Proactive Hosting & Security
At Business Refinery we provide pro-active hosting which mean we regularly check your websites for any issues, update all your plugins which keep your security intact and also keep you informed of any anomaly. See below for more information on the service.
Website hosting is the place or server where your website is hosted or stored. Hosting is related to the backend storage and management of your website and is different than Web Design / Development.
Your domain is pointed/directed to your hosting. So, when someone types in your address online, say www.google.com, the internet then goes and find that server where your website is stored and display the information.
Its basically like saying why is a good foundation for your house important. If the hosting is not good (which means your website is not stored on a good server and crammed with another 100 websites within a small storage space). It will significantly impact your website performance and this in turn makes your website slow and people will get frustrated and leave your site to find someone faster.
Yes, absolutely! Having a good and premium hosting helps your website speed. Website speed is considered one of the top factors that affect SEO performance.
Remember, you get what you pay for. When the hosting is cheap it is because your website is crammed with another 100 websites in the same small storage space online. You will realise that over a period your website starts to slow down and starts causing issues. Website hosting is directly related to your Google rankings, so when your website speed is slow you will start losing leads and eventually get pushed back in Google rankings. Hence we provide only the best hosting possible for your website.
