Managed Website Hosting

Website Hosting Choices

The main decision factors around website hosting is speed and capacity. A slow site is a site that will be visited less and less. SbOGB offers several managed hosting solutions that balance speed, capacity, and cost. Unlike with Domain Names, Website Hosting can be signed up by you or your business, or provided by a service provider like SbOGB. By securing your Domain Name as the Registrant you ultimately have the power to host your site anywhere you like. The two main questions to answer for Website Hosting are:

  1. Who will Manage and/or Own the hosting account? i.e. pay the hosting company, take care of renewals, and/or configure the account?
  2. Which type of hosting will be needed for the appropriate speed and capacity?

Call (866) 220-4777 today… we’ll walk you through your options!

Let’s briefly consider question (1) by looking at the difference between “Owning” the account and “Managing” with the options below:

OPTION 1: You Own and Manage

This is the default when you browse to a website hosting company like GoDaddy and sign-up directly. Once signed-up you can log into the control panel (i.e. cpanel) and change the configurations and hosting settings for your account. If you do all of this yourself then we refer to your Website Hosting as self managed.

  • Recommended Service Choices – If you are not an Information Technologist, for ease of use choose any Shared Hosting plan available on the web from a known good provider.
  • Advantages – Low Cost, and changes as quick as you can make them.
  • Disadvantages – Phone Support usually with a Phone Center, Multi-step Process to Get Real Technical Support, Billing and Renewal Management, More Time Consuming, Limited by Your Technical Expertise, Typically Shared Hosting with 100’s or 1000’s of other websites, Less Technical Options tend to provide overall slower website response time.
