What is Website Hosting?
Basically put website hosting by Milton Website Design allows individuals and businesses to make their website accessible via the World Wide Web 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. A web hosting company like MiltonWeb provides space on their server owned or leased for use by clients, as well as providing Internet connectivity, typically in a data center. MiltonWeb website hosting provides our clients with web space, connectivity, bandwidth and 24/7 connection to the internet so that your website will be active all day every day.
The scope of Milton Ontario Web Hosting services varies greatly. Our normal service provides small businesses with space on our server where files can be uploaded via FTP (File Transfer Protocal), a limited number of databases (MySQL) and a control panel (CPanel) where everything can be managed. This service also includes extras such as email addresses and website statisitcs.
The above mentioned hosting is generally sufficient for most websites for personal or small business use. There are however situations that call for a more complex and comprehensive package. A complex site calls for a more comprehensive package that provides database support and application development platforms (e.g. PHP, Java, Ruby on Rails, ColdFusion, or ASP.NET). These facilities allow customers to write or install scripts for applications like forums and content management. Also, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) is typically used for websites that wish to keep the data transmitted more secure.
Each website is unique and varies in requirements. As such it is important to carefully assess individual needs and decide upon the best fit for your business. For the VAST majority of clients a small hosting package is all that is needed. For informaiton please contact us.
