Is your hosting letting you down?

Posted on December 18, 2021 at 3:41 pm

Every website that is built needs to be hosted somewhere. Websites are hosted on servers and it is where all the files are stored. When someone visits your website, the server is called upon to access the files which contain information as to how the website looks and functions as well as all the content. The hosting can either be on a physical server located somewhere or up in the cloud meaning the website is called from different places as and when needed. You can opt to have a dedicated server which only contains your website or sites on or your can have a shared server where other people’s website may also be hosted. There are advantages and disadvantages to both and a dedicated server will of course cost more but you may have more control over it.

If you find that your website keeps going offline for no apparent reason, it is likely to be your hosting. You first need to check why it is going offline. It may be that the site is receiving a lot of traffic and the server can’t cope. If this is the case then cloud hosting may be what you need.
