Why Where You Host Your Website Matters

Website hosting for your company may not seem like a top priority when it comes to your marketing plan and budget. However, reliable and fast website hosting makes a big difference when it comes to your site’s performance. Sometimes people make a decision of where to host their website purely on cost, rather than the overall value.

It’s important to consider where you have your website hosted for several reasons:

 

1 Speed

Google judges sites based on how fast websites are served up to visitors. LAB’s servers are designed to be blazing fast and employ a Content Delivery Network (CDN) to cache and serve up sites even faster.

 

2 Security

We provide a complimentary SSL (picture the locked icon that appears in the browser next to your web address) to all of our hosting clients. Our platform also scans for malware and security issues, giving your site visitors peace of mind that their privacy is safe.

 

3 Reliability

Uptime, the amount of time that a server has stayed up and running, is critical. Uptime is a great measure of how good a web hosting provider is at keeping their systems up and running. LAB’s hosting platform has an industry-leading 99.95% uptime.

 

4 Management and Maintenance

The servers on which we host our websites is constantly being monitored, and there are redundant data centers and power supplies for our servers. LAB also maintains all of the WordPress sites that we host and each month, we ensure that the core of WordPress and all of its plugins are updated and functioning properly.

 

Worried your site will go down? All sites hosted on our platform are automatically backed up every night (think of Apple’s Time Machine, but for a website). Should anything go wrong with your site, we can restore it within minutes.

 

As you can see, there is a lot that goes into properly hosting a website to not only optimize its performance for visitors, but to keep it safe from hacks and downtime.
