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.

Guy George of Butterfield Stage
Over the past 30 years of my career I have had the opportunity to work with a number of IT professionals. I have never worked with someone as good as Mike. He is incredibly responsive even for the smallest requests and makes major changes happen at a very fast pace. I am, repeatedly, impressed every time I have an interaction with him. He is so respectful of his clients and understands, especially with someone like me that has limited IT knowledge and capabilities, how to speak my language so that I understand what is going on. I would highly recommend him for anyone looking to drastically improve their IT capabilities and web design whether it be a small company or a large one.
