Website Essentials Part 2: Web Hosting

This week we’re covering the second essential element of website design: web hosting. If you missed Part 1 in our Website Essentials series, you can read it close-up of an Internet serverhere. If you’re ready for today’s post, read on to find out what you need to know about Website Essential #2 and why it’s so important.

Essential Part #2: Web Hosting

The data behind every website is saved on servers. Every page, every blog post, every news article, every image — it’s all saved on servers, and web hosts are the ones who provide these. They’re the realtors of the Internet, if you will; they sell you the space you need for your website.

If you’re looking for a good one, check out these hosts:

  • MediaTemple (a high end web host — the best for high-bandwith content, such as intricate graphics and videos)
  • HostGator (the most popular, and among the most cost-effective)
  • Bluehost (one of HostGator’s cost-effective competitors)
  • DreamHost
  • Synthesis (WordPress-exclusive web hosting)


Again, like domain name registrars, web hosts will often offer you a domain name and web site templates to choose from, but only use them for hosting. The domain name registrars specialize in what they do, and there are far more excellent web site design services out there, which is the third and final essential element of your website, so be sure to come back next week to learn more about it.



Don’t have time to figure all this out? We at Ready Inc. can take the task off your hands and design the site that will best represent you and your business. Contact us today.
