All website need to be somewhere so people can access them. Hosting acts as the home where you website lives, and when people want to visit your website they type in your web address (e.g. yourdomain.com).
So with hosting you are effectively paying rent for the home where your website will live. Our website hosting, maintenance and support package includes basic shared hosting. Should the size or traffic to your website increase to a level where more premium hosting is required there will be an additional charge.
Hosting prices differ because, like houses, they are all different. If you have a big website then you will need hosting that can accommodate your website, much like if you have a big family you need more than a one bedroom flat. For the vast majority of small businesses basic hosting will be sufficient which will usually set you back between eight to ten pounds per month. We use and personally recommend SiteGround but there are many other hosting providers you can use such as GoDaddy, WPEngine, 123-reg and others.
Website maintenance can mean a lot of different things so it is always worth checking with your web design agency exactly what is included within their website maintenance service.
