Top 2 Reasons to Choose Google Cloud Hosting
Good web hosting is the backbone of a business website. For example, a mid-size and growing e-commerce store might struggle with slow server load times — and if your site's load times are slow, it can be difficult to win over potential customers. Investing in good web hosting is essential for building a successful e-commerce brand.
Choosing a web host is an important step in launching your own business website.
Your website is just as important as your products. It’s an extension of your brand and a sales tool. A web hosting provider will not only provide you with the necessary tools to get your website up and running, but also control how it works and how it responds to visitors. It can control load speed and availability and security — which all impact customer experience and the success of the site.
The Google Cloud has been a big player for over a decade. Here are the top seven reasons why we think the Google Cloud is currently the best service provider on the market.
1. Outstanding Availability and Uptime
Your website is the cornerstone of your business. If visitors can't access it, even your best products or content won't matter. A fundamental factor in the success of your website is its availability. That's why uptime is so important.
With our managed cloud hosting, you'll have a system on standby, ready to take over should anything go wrong. Our service monitors your website 24/7, and will bounce it over to the backup server in no time if your site goes down. We provide a 99.9% service level agreement, which means that your website will be up and running for almost all of the year.
Your hosting provider should provide reliable, fully-redundant uptime. Ultimately, your website should be available all the time because it's your first line of communication to your customers. You can't increase uptime on your own (you're reliant on your hosting provider), but you can avoid errors in your code to decrease downtime.
2. Live Migration of Virtual Machines
Let's be real here: your online business depends on Google Cloud. Google Cloud Hosting integrates the best of public and private cloud computing, so you can focus on building your digital presence. With live migration, you'll never have to worry about downtime again — Google Cloud can seamlessly migrate your CMS-driven website to another host machine if anything goes wrong. This way, you can maintain your website's availability without noticing any performance degradation at all.
