How Does Your Choice of Web Host Affect Your Site?

When looking to start a website, it’s important to choose a reliable host. In part one of this series, we covered three ways your choice of web host affects your site, including speed, security and backup, and uptime. We’ve come up with three more factors to add to the list. Check them out.


Search Engine Rankings


If you’re familiar with search engine optimization (SEO), then you know there are many, many factors at play when it comes to where you’ll rank for any given keyword. Your choice of web host directly impacts many of these areas. Choose poorly, and it can be difficult to get your site to rank. Choose wisely, and you’ll have better luck ranking higher and attracting more visitors to your site.

Here are just a few ways your web host impacts your search engine rankings:

• Speed.also impacts SEO because site speed is part of the ranking algorithms for sites like Google. It can also indirectly impact SEO because faster speeds satisfy web visitors, and if you can satisfy, it means more people will link back to you, boosting your rankings.
•    Uptime. Uptime, which we also mentioned in part one of this series, also impacts SEO. If your site is frequently down, not only can users not access it, but neither can search engines. In some cases, search engines will penalize sites that are frequently down.
•    Server location. Your host’s server location can impact your site rankings depending on which audience you’re trying to target.


If you care at all about SEO (and you should!), then be sure to read web hosting reviews to ensure you’re choosing a host that won’t lead you toward penalties from search engines.


Conversion Rates

You want visitors on your site to opt in to your offer and to buy from you, right? Then pay attention to your web host. Choosing a cheap host because of the price may save you money up-front, but it’s going to cost you a lot more in the long run by missing out on potential conversions.

You’ll notice that we’ve mentioned speed several times already in this series. That’s how important it is, and it plays a role in conversion rates as well. Users abandon slow-loading sites. In fact, for every one second delay in page speed, conversions drop by 7 percent. That means that your site has to be quick so you don’t lose potential buyers. Try to get it below one second loading time.

Uptime is also important for obvious reasons. If users can’t access your site, they can’t buy from you, and just a few minutes of downtime here and there can add up quickly.
Another way your host can indirectly affect your conversion rates is through your own reputation. For example, say your site was hacked due to security issues with your host. Word gets out, and your reputation begins to tarnish. Fewer people will trust your site’s security, and therefore they will be hesitant to buy from you.


Ability to Scale

When setting up your site through a host or through website builders, you may start out small knowing not many people will visit it at first. However, as your site grows and more traffic flows in, you’re going to need more resources to accommodate the requests to your server.

Because of this, it’s best to choose a host that gives you the option to accommodate your growing site. For example, you might start with a shared hosting package and then upgrade to a dedicated hosting package later on. A good host will help you make a smooth transition.

Now that you understand why your host is so important to your site’s success, you can move forward in researching and choosing a good web host. Already signed up for hosting? The good news is that you can always switch to a new host. Which web host are you thinking about using?



Here the Five Security options that every hosting service should provide

Choosing the best web host isn’t about who’s offering the best price for the most bandwidth. When shopping around for web hosts for your new website or blog, it’s important to consider the security options each host offers. An estimated 30,000 websites are hacked every day, and working with a web host that takes security seriously can greatly mitigate your risk of being hacked and compromising site data. Before choosing a web host, make sure you consider these five security options.

1.   Secure Datacenter
When working with data over the web, it’s easy to forget that your data is stored in a physical location and that location can affect how secure your site files will be. For example, you don’t want your web host’s data centers to be in a location susceptible to natural disasters; otherwise, the servers are at risk of being destroyed in hurricanes, earthquakes, or floods. If something like this should happen, however, a good web host will have backup power generators on site to keep their clients’ websites running during a power outage.

Natural disasters aren’t your own security concern when it comes to data centers. You also want to research hosts and affordable hosting reviews to see if your choice web host has physical security measures in place to keep potential hackers out of the data center.

2.      SFTP
FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol. An FTP client is used to upload files and publish them to your account. SFTP stands for Secure File Transfer Protocol and is the same thing, only more secure. FTP is open to vulnerabilities, and files can be intercepted with an FTP client, which means information like passwords can be accessed by unauthorized users and then used to compromise your website.
On the other hand, SFTP encrypts the files to make it much more difficult for outsiders—such as hackers—to read your files and get ahold of your passwords. Keep a lookout for web hosts that make this option available to you.




3.      Regular Server Maintenance
Maintaining quality web hosting is not a “set it and forget it” type of strategy. A good host will maintain their servers to ensure you’re at low risk for attacks. A good indicator that a web hosting provider is maintaining their servers with the latest upgrades is if they have a published security protocol. A good web host will be transparent about their maintenance practices.

4.      High Uptime
Uptime refers to how often your site is available to web visitors. If they can’t access your site for some reason, this period is called downtime. Downtime may occur due to connection issues, power failures, network congestion, hard drive failures, and more. Look for a host with high uptimes. This is a good indication that they have other strong security measures in place. Not only that, but high uptimes keep visitors coming back and can cut out some of the hassles of dealing with web hosting companies.
While no one can guarantee 100 percent uptime, several web hosts come pretty close, including eHost. When Hosting Facts tested them, they noted in their eHost review that they featured a flawless uptime over the past 10 months.

5.      Site Backup Solutions
Even with solid security measures in place, a good web host can’t guarantee 100 percent that your site won’t crash or be hacked. In case that does happen, all isn’t lost. Hope can be restored through regular site backups, which will provide copies of your site files so you can restore your site should your server fail or should something else goes awry. If you’re lucky, you won’t have to use your backup files, but preparing for the unexpected can help you get your site back up and running following a crisis.
Good web hosts include site backups in their services—and they back up your site regularly so you always have a recent file to work from. Some web hosts will include site backup options straight from the control panel, which is great to have so you can remain in control of your backups. Ideally, you’ll want to work with a web host that allows you to restore your backups yourself so you don’t have to wait around for support to assist you during a disaster.
When researching web hosts and reading web hosting reviews, check on how often the hosts back up their servers, where the files are stored, and what methods for backup they use so that you can make an informed decision.
Website security is incredibly important for keeping your site up and running properly. It’s also important for your reputation so visitors can remain confident in browsing your site and sharing information with you. While there are many areas for site vulnerabilities, your choice of web host is a crucial area to focus on because a poor web host is at high-risk of hacks and other security breaches. Start by considering these five points when researching web hosts to help you find a quality host for your site.
