Website Hosting

Top Website Hosting Australia

Your website and email hosting play a bigger role in your business’s online success than you think. Keep on reading to find out how.

What is website hosting?

When creating a website, purchasing a domain and website hosting is crucial. These elements provide your website with an online home and address.

Web hosting involves storing your website’s data online, accessible whenever someone clicks on a link to your website. These storage spaces are referred to as servers and can either be self-owned or leased from a web host provider.

A domain name is a critical component of your website’s URL that identifies your website to users and browsers. For example, in the URL, ‘yourbusiness’ is the domain name. Additionally, the URL indicates whether your website is secure by including an ‘s’ after the ‘HTTP’ if it is secure.

At Search Service, we offer a range of services that includes domain registration, personalized email addresses, local hosting, and current SSL certificates to ensure the security of your website. Contact us today to learn more about our offerings.

Can Website hosting impact
search engine results?

The location of your hosting provider’s servers can have a significant impact on your website’s page speed and ultimately affect your search engine optimization (SEO).

When a user clicks on a link to your website, their browser sends a request to the server holding your website data. The server then transmits the website information to the user’s browser for display.

The time it takes for this transmission to occur can be likened to playing catch with another person. Would the ball return to you faster if you were standing closer together?

To help Australian businesses achieve the best results from their hosting, our servers are based in Australia. By providing local hosting services, we help to ensure that your website performs optimally and delivers an outstanding user experience to your customers.

Can I transfer my existing website hosting to a new provider?

A website designer works on the visual part of your website you see, while the developer brings it to life and ensures everything works as it should.

Need faster hosting but want to keep your domain name, personalised email accounts and website data? If you have a WordPress website, all you need to do is provide us with your site’s address (URL), choose a plan and we’ll do the rest. Simple.

How much does website hosting cost in Australia?

When creating a website, it’s essential to have a website designer work on the visual aspects while the developer ensures everything works seamlessly.

While it may be tempting to opt for hosting with extremely low prices, it’s crucial to understand the risks associated with doing so. Hosting providers use servers to store website data and often offer shared hosting to lower costs, where multiple websites share server space.

Unfortunately, shared server space can leave your website vulnerable to security breaches and limit its size, resulting in slower performance and potential crashes.

At Search Service, we prioritize security, performance, and price by customizing our packages to suit your unique needs. Our packages include regular security updates and a set number of website updates per month. With our tailored approach, you only pay for the features you require, ensuring your website operates efficiently and securely.
