Building a website for the first time is an exciting journey, which will inevitably see you go through some essential steps. You have to start with choosing a provider, defining the best type of hosting, and then picking the most cost-effective package.
According to the latest statistics, over 81% of online consumers purchase products and services based on trust. When shopping for a TV, for example, you are much more likely to choose a Sony or Samsung, instead of an unknown local brand you know nothing about.
Many years have passed without anything major happening in the web hosting industry. The most pressing issue for websites in the last 8-10 years remains security and speed.
