Before you start a new website project you will need to register your domain and choose a hosting company. Woland Web offers hosting in a secure, US based server where you do not need to worry about downtime. When searching for a hosting company follow the steps below.

How do I find the best place to host my website?

Just as with any other product, there are many options to choose from. Be sure to find out what type of server management comes with your managed hosting.

Why is server management important?

Find a company that will not only fulfill the minimum requirements you need for your website, also choose a company that provides the support and tools that will add value to your business.

What is the total cost of the hosting service?

The cheapest web hosting may only offer bare-bones service and usually does not include features like firewall protection and a back-up of your website files. Price these add-ons that you will need before deciding on a service.

What else should I compare when choosing a web hosting service?

Google the hosting company to find out if they have a history of being down for periods of time, have incurred data breaches and if they offer 24/7 support. According to Kissmetrics, 40 percent of consumers abandon a website that takes more than 3 seconds to load. This could be the difference of a new client to your business.

An organization needs to install the SSL Certificate onto its web server to initiate a secure session with browsers. Once a secure connection is established, all web traffic between the web server and the web browser will be secure.
