Small business web design begins with web hosting. In order to have your own website you’ll need a web host, but not all hosts are created equal. Depending on your needs, you may want dedicated hosting or you could simply need shared hosting. Some small businesses find it beneficial to host their websites using cloud computing. Or you might benefit from a virtual dedicated server or a managed server. There are plenty of options when it comes to hosting and you’ll need to do your research.

Most small businesses just go to a host and pay based on price. But you should consider your business’s needs before deciding on a hosting plan. If all you want is a five-page business site that you build from an off-the-shelf template then the shared hosting plan is probably right for you. But if you have deeper security needs with a thousand page shopping cart, a blog, a forum, and several tiers of protected areas for members then a dedicated host is probably best for your business.

So what does hosting have to do with web design? The capabilities of your host are important to consider so that you can ensure that you get the right hosting product for your website based on its design and security features. If you need a consultant to help guide you through the web of hosting products then call us at Reciprocal Consulting.
