Why Is a Good Hosting Provider and Regular Maintenance Essential for Your Website?

Every business owner, whether you sell to consumers or other businesses, should have a website. Even if you don’t plan on doing any selling online, a website helps people find you in North Texas. But just having a website is not enough.

A website that exists but never changes is like a page in a very long book. When search engines try to find a website based on a set of search criteria, it thumbs through millions of pages of that book and then lists the pages that seem relevant. Search engines do this in a variety of ways, but most importantly, they offer results that have been updated most recently first.

If you create a website and never update it, you will be at the end of a very long list. 

What Does a Good Hosting Provider Do?

Good hosting providers take care of your website. When search algorithms change, your provider should change certain aspects of your website to take advantage of these changes.

North Texas Web Design does that for you. And what is better is that we are in North Texas. We know what people in our area will use for a search term. As an example, if you are in England you call gas, petrol. So, if you come to North Texas and search for a petrol station you aren’t going to find one. You have to look for a gas station. This is the advantage of using a local hosting provider for your North Texas business.

What Kind of Maintenance Is Necessary?

Technology is always changing. If you don’t believe us just look at your phone. When Apple comes out with a new phone it may interact differently with your website than it used to. The same thing happens when Microsoft comes out with a new version. Sometimes you can’t get to a website you used to be able to get to because they didn’t change it to adapt to the changes Microsoft made.

North Texas Web Design keeps track of these technological changes. It also watches the trends of consumers. For example, studies show that if your web page loads too slowly some consumers will just go to the next one in the search list. People want things now. They use their phones more than their home computers. To make sure they can find you and will bother loading your page, you have to regularly check trends and adapt accordingly.

  • We came to North Texas Web Design as a new company offering products which are most often searched for on the web. Our website has been one of our most valuable business tools, as we knew it would be. Mike and his team worked very hard to understand our business and the challenges we faced in a very competitive market. I couldn’t be happier with our decision to choose them to design our website. We’re very proud of it and they are always there when we need to add products or make any changes to the site. We made a great decision to use North Texas Web Design and it pays off for us daily.

  • We have had the great pleasure of working with Mike McLeland for a number of years now. The quality of our website is fabulous. The true test is of course, does it make the potential clients want to take the time to inquire about our services? It absolutely does this. He created it so that it is easy for that potential client to decide quickly and with ease that they want to know more about us and our services. This is rare because a lot of websites in our industry in particular are extremely hard to move around once you have arrived.Additionally, Mike has a rare quality as a Web Designer. He understands who he can send an email filled with technical terms to and who he shouldn’t. The owner of our company receives the technical emails and I get the total opposite. This makes it so much easier for us to work with him.Lastly, his level of care is, ” Off the Charts!” There I no other way to describe it.I hope a lot of other businesses use his services.
