Why should you chose business hosting ?

  • Everyone wants their site to go viral, but if you’re on shared hosting, it might not be the best experience. A spike in traDc could not only cause downtime to your website, but could also affect the other sites hosted on the shared server. If you’re seeing an increase in traDc or you’re considering new marketing methods (TV commercials, billboards, etc), I would recommend you move to Business Hosting.
  • Googlebots crawl websites daily, looking for updates to better your search listings, but if your website is down and a bot is sent to crawl during the outage, your SEO ranking will be impacted. Business Hosting will give you more resources than shared hosting, allowing for more traDc and consistent performance.

Business Hosting FAQs

The price is higher than shared hosting ?
