At some point between starting and upgrading your business you will be tempted by the thought of free or cheap website hosting. Some entrepreneurs prefer free/cheap hosting above professional hosting because they save a lot of money. Cheap web hosting isn’t a good choice for anyone that didn’t study IT because managing your own domain, keeping your website up to speed, upgrading the software, controlling your data and content and creating sound backups for your site is no simple task.
Using professional hosting service providers like Big Splash gives business owners a lot of great benefits and ends up saving you a lot of time and money. Some of the top benefits you will enjoy when you use our professional hosting services include the following;

We will look after your website and ensure that your site is as safe, up to date and fast as possible.
- Customer support
Customer support is one of the best reasons to use professional hosting services. If something goes wrong you don’t have to struggle to find a solution. Simply pick up the phone or send an email and an expert will fix your issue right up.
- Better control of your content
When you use free hosting options you often don’t have control over certain aspects of your website and sharing content can be hard. When you use professional hosting you have full control of all content that is shared and you can do regular website upgrades or blog shares yourself.
- Domain and email address
Domains are important for growing your brand online and using a personalized email that suits your domain alias makes your business seem much more legitimate and professional. Professional hosting services can create you a domain name and will supply you with a suitable email address.
- Website design
DIY web design templates with drag and drop features promises to enable you to create your own site for free or little cost, but what no one ever tells you is that you are greatly limited because each available design only offers so much adjustment. Professional hosting services can design you the perfect website to match your unique vibe and your services.
- There is always enough space and speed
When you use free hosting options you often cannot load much on your site because it will affect your website’s performance and loading speed since so many other users share your space on the same hosting system. With professional hosting you can invest in all the space you need so visitors can load your pages quickly and efficiently.
- Search Engine Optimized pages
Professional website hosts are experts in SEO (Search Engine Optimization). We know exactly what to do to improve your website ranking so your site will appear on Google’s first page of search results and we are familiar with all of the best SEO techniques to boost your site.
- Enhanced security
Professional hosting services gives you much more options in terms of security. You can choose private hosting packages and be ultimately secure because you are the only one on that particular server or you can use shared hosting options and share server space with others. The first is by far the most secure for your content but shared hosting can also be safe as long as you stick to the right host. Enhanced security includes protection from hacking, viruses and from loss of data.
