Web hosting makes it possible for you to store all of your information for your website on a server so your data is available for those browsing the Internet. One of the biggest misconceptions is that web hosting is only for small businesses who cannot afford to have their own servers on site with an appropriate firewall to protect the data.
The security of the data stored on a web hosting server is one of the biggest reasons why businesses can benefit from it. These web hosting sites make it their business to protect your information from hackers by constantly testing the server for threats and vulnerabilities. Firewalls help protect information and keep unauthorized users away from sensitive information.
Another reason it is a good idea for big businesses to use web hosting is the ability to enjoy better bandwidth. Sites crash all the time because there is more demand for the website than the bandwidth can allow. Rather than having to pay a lot of money to expand the bandwidth of your server, it is possible to just use web hosting. Even if you are only using the server to cohost your data, it can offer the protection your website needs from a possible crash down the road.
Liability is a big reason why many big businesses tend to let web hosting companies host their information. If they are able to show investors they did their due diligence with a web hosting company that promised to protect data, the web hosting company will be held accountable. Lawsuits will not be levied against the business. Instead, they will be levied against the web hosting company for failing to protect against hackers gaining access to the information on their servers.
