Whether you have a single small business website or you run a large corporation with several subdomains, you need a place to park your site and all its content. That’s where our website hosting service packages at Piedmont Website Designer can help you!

What Is Web Hosting?

All business website data, including the following, takes up space:

Cascading style sheets (CSS)

Videos

Hypertext markup language (HTML) files

Photographs

You need a place to store data and other critical files that comprise your website. A web host is where that information resides. 

A reliable web hosting service, like ours at Piedmont Website Designer, connects internet users with requested information when they search for your site. Your website wouldn’t have any online presence if it weren’t for a website host. 

Web hosting can also affect your website’s load speed and security, thus impacting your search engine optimization (SEO) performance.

Factors To Consider When Choosing the Right Web Hosting Provider for Your Website

One mistake businesses make is they just go with the first web hosting service they find. However, that’s not always the best choice. Factors you should consider when weighing the best web hosting solution options for you include:

Hosting server uptime and reliability:

Each website hosting service company makes different guarantees about uptime, which refers to an expectation of reliability of access to your site. Downtime refers to situations in which your website is unavailable to the public and can affect your site traffic and ability to grow your business.

Limitations that apply to your account:

Bandwidth refers to the flow of traffic that passes through your server. Videos can consume a lot of bandwidth, causing buffering if multiple people view them all at once. You’ll want to ensure that whatever hosting plan you choose, especially if it claims to offer unlimited bandwidth, can actually accommodate your site’s anticipated traffic and use.

How you use your website:

If you run a content-rich site, such as a WordPress blog, you may need to find a web host that can offer a content delivery network (CDN). If your site serves as a repository for a lot of video or images, for example, you may need to ensure the host you select offers ample space to accommodate that type of content. Also, if you plan to run an e-commerce store, you’ll want to ensure your web host has built-in security measures, such as secure sockets layer (SSL) certificates.

The above-referenced concerns are three of perhaps the most important to consider when deciding on website hosting solutions. Next, we will highlight our different web hosting service tiers at Piedmont Website Designer. 

Our Greensboro, NC website hosting company offers three different service packages to choose from, including the following:

Basic Web Hosting Package

  • Local Storage Allotment: 5GB
  • Maximum Monthly Visits: 15,000
  • Monthly Bandwidth: 25GB

We also refer to this web site hosting option as our starter plan because it provides you with all the basics you would ever need to ensure and manage your company’s online presence while also giving you access to additional resources and tools as it scales. Here’s a quick rundown of some of this basic hosting package’s specs:

  • Full hosting support
  • Daily comprehensive site back-ups and retention for 30 days

E-Commerce Hosting Package

  • Local Storage Allotment: 10GB
  • Maximum Monthly Visits: 25,000

If you run an e-commerce store, then you likely experience a higher traffic volume than a non-retail site. You probably require a lot of storage to list your various items and their related images. Additionally, your customers expect your site to be up all the time. This e-commerce web hosting service package allows you to accommodate more visitors, store more data and gives you the bandwidth needed to ensure your customers experience a seamless browsing experience. This web hosting tier includes:

  • Free Cloudflare installation and setup

If your company has needs that exceed what your current web hosting service providers offer, you may want to consider this plan. It’s also ideal if you want the same host for various sites or you’re looking to grow the size of an existing website. This enterprise-level web hosting tier offers additional storage, visits, and bandwidth over our other Piedmont Website Designer tiers, thus ensuring more reliable availability and scalability of your business.
