Why can’t I host my own website?
Well, the short answer is you can. The question you want to be asking is “Why shouldn’t I host my own website”. A home Internet broadband connection can usually host a website depending on the size. Some internet service providers try to block these home servers however. It’s also very unlikely that your home computer was built to run 24/7, 365 days a year without maintenance or damage due to overheating. It will be more expensive to replace your computer every year than to pay an annual hosting fee for a reliable service. You also don’t have to worry about paying extra in internet bills, or running out of space on your computer as your website grows.
What makes a “good” hosting company?
A good hosting company will have been in business, offering hosting, for more than 5 years. This proves that clients hosting their websites and email with them are satisfied enough to stay there.

Why do I need Web Hosting?
For your website to be available to the World Wide Web, it must be stored on a server that can be accessed 24/7 by the Internet. If your website is not available for people to see, it’s like having an “Open” sign on your store with the door locked! Web hosting in London Ontario is necessary to keep your website available to internet users . For an annual fee, SmartWebPros.com™ will host your website allowing you to concentrate on your business. We deliver superior hosting through trusted servers experiencing minimal downtime. We also host e-mail applications for companies who wish to have their own email addresses.
What should I look for when choosing a company to host my website?
When looking for web hosting in London Ontario, you have the choice between a company that supplies only hosting and specializes in mass hosting, or you may choose to go with an IT company that has hosting as one of their added services. If you have a company design your website, we recommend also having them host your website. Sometimes it is difficult for the average website owner to know if a problem is arising from a technical error with the hosting server or a programming error on the website. A web design company will reduce the number of people you have to call if something isn’t working properly on your site. Another thing companies like SmartWebPros.com™ offer is email hosting, database hosting and multimedia hosting. If you need any other these things, it’s best to keep all your hosting with one company.

Weaknesses or vulnerabilities on a different website will have no effect on your website. The benefits of having a dedicated hosting server with SmartWebPros is increased security and reliability.

As an alternative option, SmartWebPros offers shared hosting on a trustworthy and reliable server.

Although a shared server doesn’t have the same level of security and reliability as a dedicated server, it can be a good choice for budget-conscious websites or websites with extremely variable traffic.
