If you own a business and don’t have a website, it’s time to get with the plan. You may already have someone to design your site and a domain, but what about business web hosting?
For most small business websites, shared hosting is more than adequate. If you have a simple HTML site and don’t plan on receiving much traffic, you should not pay more than £7 a month for a hosting plan.
If your site uses a content management system (CMS) or has a lot of Flash content, a VPS would be a good investment if you will receive more than 400 visitors per day. Busier sites might need a dedicated server.
There are many hosting providers out there that offer “business web hosting,” but any web host will work just fine. Just make sure you are comfortable with the level of support offered. Medium and large businesses often host sites in-house.
