Find your piece of online real estate.

There are a few steps you must take to get your website on the internet, and one of those crucial steps is finding website hosting. Website hosting is your piece of online real estate. It’s where all the data for your website is stored and then served to your visitors.

But why is it important to choose the right type of website hosting and the right host! Well, let’s imagine that your future website is a physical store at a shopping centre.

The floor space of your store plays an important part in your stores’ success. Whether you need a vast showroom or a smaller, accessible shop front, your space needs to suit your store’s intention. You can’t fit a David Jones in a food court!

Much like website hosting, it’s crucial to select your web space to suit your website’s needs. If you’re planning for a large eCommerce store or a small brochure website, you need the right hosting plan to run your website. Luckily, online real estate comes with a lot more freedom and flexibility.

One of the great features of hosting your website with VentraIP is all shared hosting plans run on our Select Hosting Platform. This might sound fancy, but it means that you can easily customise the features of your hosting plan at any point in time. If you require more power, want less space or need faster performance, you can adjust your hosting plan easily. Check it out for yourself with our custom cPanel hosting plan.

So what about choosing a web hosting provider? Why is that important? Well, back to our store in the shopping centre, imagine the building where your store was located wasn’t well maintained. If your store had structural problems or emergency maintenance issues, you would need to rely on the centre to provide the proper support in resolving these problems. In those scenarios, if your experience is any less than excellent, it may harm your business.

Web hosts are no different. When it comes to customer support, infrastructure, and development, their performance can negatively or positively impact your business.

Selecting a Web host with a proven track record for creating an excellent customer experience is a surefire way to get the most out of your online website. At VentraIP, we’re pretty well known for having excellent service. Thousands of Aussies would agree that our customer experience is second to none.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact our Melbourne based customer support team, who are available 24/7 to help answer any questions or resolve any problems you might have.
