Hosting

I know that this may sounds like very simple to some people but believe it or not, there are many people that I have met over the years that have no idea on how to do it. For those of you that do not know what is hosting; it is a server where you place all the content of your website.

Choosing a good hosting company that suits your need is sometimes quite tricky. No matter what people tell you, each company has their own advantages and disadvantages in different areas. In other words, there is no such thing as a perfect hosting. Over the years, I have tried several hosting companies; from local to the world-renowned hosting companies.

For some people, choosing a hosting company is a big dilemma because there are many things that need to be considered. Well, I’m one of those people too. It’s not just about the cost, reputation, support, quality of service, etc but also you need to know whether it is the best solution for your business.

I used to think that all hosting companies are the same but the more I looked into it, the more differences that I found. One of my major concerns when it comes to choosing the right hosting service is whether it has any effect on my traffic. Some experts claim that your website will be ranked better on Google depending on where you hosted your website. If let’s say your hosting company is in Helsinki, your website will be ranked better in Google Finland.

When I started my online business, I had no idea whatsoever about this. So, I bought a local hosting package for my first website. Few months gone by, I started to notice that most of my traffic only coming from my country although I was actually targeting the U.S market.
