Why choose Website Hosting from the Smart Domain Group?
Quality Website Hosting is Vital:
The quality of your website hosting isn’t just a question of whether it’s online or not. The speed of your site has a massive impact on customers and whether they’ll stick around or get frustrated and leave.
And search engines such as Google are increasing the importance of loading times for search engine rankings, in addition to where your web host has their servers, who else is located on the same shared servers and other factors. You can rest assured that if you are on a shared server with us, you’re next to reputable and established UK businesses.
Our servers are in a large data centre in the UK (Google love that) with world class encryption and massive bandwidth capability, so your website will never be slow and we monitor your site 24/7, 365 days a year.

What is Website Hosting?
If you want people to be able to visit your website, then the files which power it need to be accessible on a computer connected to the internet. But if you did this on your home laptop, it would have to be on 24/7, and you’d need an expensive internet connection to avoid the site slowing down or failing completely.
That’s why websites are now hosted on dedicated hardware, known as servers. These servers are located in secure data centres with incredibly fast internet connections. Not only that but hosting companies also plan for safety and back-ups in the event of an emergency or outage, so your site will be accessible 24/7.
Why is Website Hosting Important?
The obvious reason is that choosing an unreliable hosting company can mean your website is unavailable when customers try to visit it. But there are also other factors to take into consideration. Bad hosting can mean a slow loading website, which will have a negative impact on customers and search engine optimisation. And search engines also take into account where a website is hosted, and what other websites may be hosted on the same shared server.
