Which website hosting service is best

This question is very dependent on need.

How much space do you need for your website, how many visitors do you think you will get, and what sort of support is needed for that website.

In many ways, the HostBanquet packages are intended to support the other services offered throughout the group, such as our SEO Services over at CommonSenSEO

Therefore, because the main basis of the hosting is to provide the very best of service for our internal use, this means that you can be sure that whatever we provide to you will also be more than adequate for the job.

If however you want to discuss the options, and whether another provider is actually better for your particular needs, then no worries, you are always welcome when you call (UK +44) 0800 808 5567

How much does it cost to host a Web site

There really isn’t any direct corelation between pricing and service in most cases.

We have seen hosting for as little as £1.00 a month (or even less if bought annually), right the way up to almost £150.00 a month for some of the more exclusive packages.

If you asked us what the typical price is, then again it depends, but if you are operating a fairly standard business website, it should cost in the region of £10.00-£40.00 a month.

For HostBanquet, our hosting starts at zero cost for existing paying clients, and raises up to around £25, if you have full update and backup management included.

What is the cheapest way to host a website

Ideally ‘cheap’ shouldn’t be the deciding factor, as cheap can lead to poor rankings for your website.

  • You ideally need locally based services to improve speed of load times;
  • You need SSD storage by your host provider, again to keep the speed at it’s best;
  • You need to avoid hosting used by spammers
  • and it always helps if you can reach your hosting provider by phone

HostBanquet provides all of these, yet manages to provide them at the very lowest prices

In fact, if you also work with us on any other aspect of your online marketing, the chances are, your hosting will be provided free.

Just call us on (UK +44) 0800 808 5567 to figure out what is best for you and your business.

What does it mean to host a site

Web site hosting is the actual storing and delivery of files that make up a web site.
Almost like you would store your own files in a folder on your computer, a website is also stored as files, but on a computer that is accessible from anywhere on the Internet.

For visitors to be able to find your web site, it will need to have an address, known as a Domain Name.

This domain name is purchased seperately from hosting, and wherever possible, is an asset that any business should own for themselves.
