In order to have success online, the website needs to be available 100% of the time and respond very quickly to its visitors, allowing them to access the information they need instantly.
Web hosting is often overlooked by many business owners and most issues with websites today are related to cheap, shared hosting.
For example, in a shared hosting environment, it only takes one bad website to cause issues for other websites hosted on the same hosting server. This is due to everything coming back to the server IP Address.
An email marketing company spamming people can result in the IP address being placed on a blacklist. This then means your emails are blocked and you are unaware of any issue.
If someone decides to host adult material on a website, and Google detects it and often places the IP Address in its system as adult related, this can affect your website.
Also, with security attacks and vulnerabilities, it is vital to ensure your website is up-to-date and also that you have a backup of it.
Cheap hosting at £3.99 per month is often what is used for many websites. Quite simply, at this cost, it cannot provide what is required.
