What Are The Pros And Cons Of Going With A Local Web Hosting Provider in Maine?

Ultimatlely that decision is up to you, but your initial consideration as a website owner in Maine is to determine if the local business can meet your needs. A local web host does have its benefits, such as reliable customer service and personalized interactions. However, local businesses in Maine do not always have the resources to be as reliable and efficient as some of the national website hosting providers.

For your website to succeed, you need to find a hosting provider who you can feel 100% confident in if there's ever an emergency. We host our websites with large, national providers because of their vast network of resources, but we wouldn't hesitate to host with a local business if they could offer similar services along with personable customer service.

What Services Do Website Hosting Providers Usually Offer?

Hosting companies usually offer a package of services in addition to website hosting, including CDN, SSL, automatic backups, and more. A Content Delivery Network, also known as a CDN, takes the information you publish to your website from Maine and spreads it out to a worldwide network of servers, which helps improve user experience on your website.

If you're running an online business, you'll need an SSL (secure sockets layer) certificate to keep your website safe and to protect the personal information of your customers. Every reputable hosting company also provides a way to back up your website, so when something goes wrong (and it likely will at one point or another) your information will be safe Sometimes, web hosts will give you the option of having your own, custom email address. This will help you connect with customers in Maine and web traffic from around the world.

What Will A Good Web Hosting Provider Do For My Website?

When we discuss web hosting with clients in Maine, we generally stress that speed, security, and reliability are of the utmost importance. If a website doesn't load in just a few seconds, people "bounce" — that is, they abandon the website without visiting any other pages. It's also important to make sure your website is secure, whether it's hosted in Maine or in a data center run by one of the larger companies.

When web hosting providers talk about "uptime", what they're really talking about is reliability — and yes, it's important. We usually recommend national hosting providers, even for small businesses based in Maine. It's simply because they tend to have the infrastructure necessary to maintain close to 100% uptime and keep hackers at bay.
