Why do I need website hosting? What is that?

Without a website hosting solution, your website has no “home” and won’t be accessible to users. Think of web hosting as “rent” for your website home.

VPS Hosting: Virtual Private Servers provide client websites with dedicated space and resources on a web server machine. We highly recommend a VPS solution for any client that wants excellent performance.

A vast majority of websites are on “shared hosts” and that’s how prices are kept low. The liability of this configuration is that your website is probably sharing server space and resources with many, many other websites and should one of those sites tax the system, all the other websites sharing that space can be adversely affected.
