How Your Web Host Impacts Your SEO

In May 2021, Google started rolling out an update where if your website wasn’t fast, secure and user friendly, you could kiss your rankings goodbye.

There is a lot of factors on your website that can impact this, your web hosting being one of the easiest to fix. Your website hosting not only puts your business online, it can impact how fast it takes your site to load, how easy it is to hack, if elements are working as they should and more — all things Google says you need to be on top of to do well on their search results.

If you’ve noticed your website is receiving less and less traffic and you’re not sure, it could be something to do with your website hosting provider. Select ‘Let’s Go’ to request your FREE website audit and get to the bottom of it quickly and stress-free.

What's the deal with free or $1 a month hosting?

Cheap hosting is not the same as affordable hosting. While it may be tempting to sign up for cheap hosting, you’re going to end up paying more in money and time in the long-term.

Free or cheap hosting typically puts your website on shared hosting servers with as many websites as they can fit, slowing down your site and opening you up to security breaches. You’ll be allocated a tiny storage space so small you’ll only be able to put a very small, basic website online.

Affordable hosting will typically only set you back $1 to $2 a day and include dedicated server space, giving you fast speeds, security and all the website updates you need. Plus, with Localsearch hosting, you receive that top-notch customer support when and where you need it. Request your free quote today.

How Hosting Actually Works

Website hosting is what puts your business online. How web hosting works is the web host stores your website data on a server. When someone requests to access your website (such as on Google, through a link they’ve been sent, etc.), the server sends your website information to the user’s browser.

When you sign up for hosting, many hosts will place your website on a shared web server. Shared web servers can reduce your website’s speed, security and reliability, depending on how many web hosting accounts are on the same server.

So, checking out other hosting providers who specialise in business websites, like Localsearch, can help save you the hassle these problems can cause. Request your free quote now to find out more.

In most cases, you can switch web hosting providers very easily. The easiest way to transfer your web hosting is to ensure your new provider has a migration service. If they don’t, you’ll need to manually migrate your website, including exporting your data from your current hosting service. This can be difficult for those without technical training.

Where you may find issues with migrating your website is if your current hosting services does not allow exports of the data. Some Australian web hosts will require you to have a specific plan to do this. It’s best to check this before you sign up to a new host. 

WordPress hosting is specific to the requirements of WordPress websites. The configuration of the hosting allows for the custom design capabilities of the platform.

Standard web hosting refers to hosting suitable for all types of websites, typically HTML5. This hosting has basic configurations suitable for more basic hosting.

Localsearch provides web design services and HTML5 and WordPress web hosting.

Most web builder platforms will provide free basic hosting. However, this will normally be very limited in size and your domain will include the platform’s name. This will impact the trust in your website as well as what you can do with your site.

The best web hosting Australia has to offer will be from around a couple of dollars a day, meeting not only your website requirements, but also that of user experience and Google too. Most web hosts will have varying packages, so be sure to speak to someone who can guide you on what you need, if you’re not sure.

Quality website management in Australia can start from as little as a dollar or so a day. Managed WordPress hosting typically costs a little more than that for a HTML5 website due to the work required to keep the high-quality nature of the sites functioning as they should.

Website management should include making relevant platform and app updates, regular backups of your website data and more. Many web hosts offer this with their packages (like Localsearch), but check before you buy!
