When (and Why) Do You Need Web Hosting?
Websites are easier to build and cheaper than ever before, and you can often get a website and hosting for free from certain providers. However, free hosting often comes with hidden issues. For example:
- Your website may not be secure.
- Your website will probably be similar to many others.
- You likely won’t own your domain name, and your domain may only be customizable in a limited way.
- Your site could get shut down at any time if the service you use goes out of business, changes policies, or just decides to give you the boot.
If you’re just getting off the ground and working on your first website ever, there’s nothing wrong with using a free service. A free site is better than no site, and in most cases, you can build a free site that will at least help you accomplish your primary business goal. Just keep in mind that you’ll have no guarantees of security, reliability, or versatility from services that provide free websites, and you’ll likely fight an uphill battle to introduce any advanced functionality.
By investing a small amount into your site and web hosting, you can benefit from much more advanced functionality, customization, and scalability.
And if you see surprisingly cheap web hosting options, you’re probably not looking at managed hosting. Without managed hosting, you’re left to personally deal with every error message, software install, security patch, site update, and random hiccup. If you hit a dead end, the hosting service will charge you hourly for help, and it will not come cheap. Unless you’re very comfortable building and maintaining websites, you’ll want managed hosting, and LaFleur is an excellent choice.
Why Get Hosting With a Marketing Agency Like LaFleur?
While most people think working with a developer or marketing agency requires that they build your site, that’s not always the case. In the interest of transparency, you should know that agencies often get discounted rates (or improved services at the same rates) compared to individuals.
In the case of domain hosting, we never recommend allowing anyone except the principal stakeholder at your business to own your domain. You can always add domain managers from within or outside your organization, but if someone else owns your domain, they can do whatever they want with it. If your relationship with them sours, they can hold your website hostage.
Always own your domain.
For web hosting, though, you may be able to get an equivalent or cheaper hosting rate with the same or better features by reaching out to an agency. In our case, we have dedicated servers at LaFleur that operate faster and can handle larger loads compared to what you would get from a basic plan with a typical web hosting company. And people hosting their sites with us get access to all the same features that a web hosting company would provide and more because we have a much larger plan to accommodate our large client roster.
One unique perk of getting your hosting services from an agency like LaFleur, especially if you’re just getting started with a new website, is that you can tap into their expertise and build a relationship with them. This dynamic is one of the reasons most agencies mark up their hosting; you may only have one quick question, but if the agency has 50 clients who each have one quick question, answering them all for free is just not feasible. Still, it’s helpful to have expert advice a phone call away, and working with an agency can pay dividends later on if you want to scale up your website and other marketing efforts quickly without straining the resources of your in-house staff.
