So what are your hosting options?
Once you've made the decision to create an on-line presence for yourself or your business and have a website built, you'll need a place to store the collection of files that make a website function and a way to make those files accessible to other people connected to the internet. A web server, through web hosting, provides these critical functions.
Whilst every website needs hosting, there are a number of ways that website hosting can be done. The type of hosting you need will depend on your websites size and complexity, as well as the resources and technical expertise you have at your disposal.
Whilst thesmarthand.co.uk doesn't currently offer directly supplied Web Hosting services (something we may do in the future), we will be happy to discuss these options with you and help you make an informed decision based on the type of website you require.
