What is Server Hosting?

Server hosting refers to offsite management and upkeep of hardware resources that are designated for a company’s use. By enlisting the help of a server-hosting service, businesses remove the financial and operational needs for keeping server resources onsite.

A server-hosting service should have some of the following qualities to be valuable to a business. Support services are important. The offsite nature of the server host requires that a business should look for server-hosting providers that deliver 24/7 free phone support with customer service personnel who understand what the business needs and picks up the phone when the business requires.

The server-hosting provider should offer scalability. For example, while a business may be shopping for a hosting service for their current needs, they should consider partnering with a service that can scale and grow, as their company gets bigger.

The server-hosting provider should offer backup and accessibility. The business should make sure that the web-hosting service provides adequate backup, and that they do not make it difficult to make changes to the business website. The server hosts that a business chooses should give access, for example, to the server so that new email accounts can be created and changes to server settings can be made.
