What is Web Hosting used for?
Without hosting, you cannot put A website, a web application, or any other digital solution online. Web hosting is, therefore, an obligation.
In addition to allowing the visibility of a site on the net, web hosting optimizes the availability and access to your resources. Therefore, one of its primary missions is to secure the data between a web browser and the hosting servers.
How does Web Hosting in Pakistan help you strengthen the data protection of your website?
Allow a site to be visible on the Internet.
At its creation, a website, an application, or a messaging system must be attached to a web identity, a domain name (name of the company, brand, or product) associated with an IP address. This name serves as an address for Internet users to visit the site via search engines.
Demanding safety criteria
There are different hosts that you choose according to your needs.
An online host stores data on servers located in a data center, data center. The storage hardware must be efficient and permanently secure the hosted sites. Therefore, it operates under 24/7 monitoring to counter hacks and malicious attacks.
Different security protocols directly protect servers from fire, humidity, etc. However, these rules also concern the environment, particularly access to buildings and data center installations such as power supply and electrical connections, which are designed as duplicates (equipment redundancy) in the event of failure of one of the systems.
Daily routines such as updates, continuous testing, and storage of activity logs in digital safes are implemented to strengthen security and data backup.
These daily backups make it possible not to lose the platform’s data and maintain the continuity of services.
A web host makes your site safer and more efficient
Internet users have acquired habits, and many are making purchases or filling out medical forms. This trust was possible thanks to the actions implemented to secure the data.
Protecting confidential and sensitive information (password, address, bank details) submitted by its visitors is therefore essential.
This is why web hosts automatically integrate SSL certificates into the hosting. This is a file that authenticates the identity of a website. It encrypts and secures communications between the remote server and the visitor through the HTTPS protocol, the “S,” meaning security. A small padlock in the address bar indicates that the site is secure.
HTTP sites are not secure and are vulnerable to third-party intrusion into the system.
The host provides optimal anti-DDoS protection.
Anti-DDoS protection enables continuous real-time analysis of data passing through the IP network.
A DDoS is a denial of service attack that renders a service or network unavailable by saturating bandwidth or exhausting system resources.
These attacks create outages that impact financially and damage brand reputation. A secure site can be perceived as vulnerable and appears less reliable.
A server outage can also affect natural referencing if Google’s crawler crawls web pages at the shutdown time.
Although the host accumulates actions to secure the data, the owner of a website is responsible for the security of confidential data that passes through its platform. As part of the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulations), it must implement protection systems (anti-virus, secure host) on its site.
Improve your natural referencing
When choosing a host, you should also consider its storage type and bandwidth performance. These elements contribute, in fact, to improving the natural referencing of a site.
An unsecured site is a penalized site. A site must guarantee Internet users the protection of their data. Moreover, a message alerts visitors when a site is not secure!
Google uses page load time and security in its algorithm to evaluate a site, contributing to the quality of user experience. It thus penalizes faulty and insecure areas. For example, pages with low traffic or an alarming bounce rate are de-indexed. This is a signal of a bad user experience (UX).
Unsecured sites rank poorly in search results and SERPs (Search Engine Result Pages) and lose visibility.
Fast page loading makes a site efficient.
It improves the bounce rate on your site. If it is too long, it affects traffic and conversion rate. Even if other factors are considered to control this loading time (image weight), the host’s performance plays a vital role in a site’s performance.
Thus the host can offer technical resources to optimize the loading time and service adapted to the site’s needs. It can provide enough bandwidth to absorb traffic, integrate caching to avoid loading scripts, and use modules to compress data between server and browser.
For a site with international ambitions, the host must have a CDN. It is a content distribution network from several servers located in different places around the world. In addition, it offers other advantages, such as distributing content locally, speeding up page loading, and securing data.
The web host helps site owners better control the risks of malicious acts. For the user experience and security to go hand in hand and be optimized, they must be thought out globally and integrated when creating the site or web application.
