Every designer or developer who has worked with websites knows the importance of hosting. Web hosting is among the top important things that you have to consider before starting the website creation. Selecting a really good web hosting company can do your half of the work.
Many people talk about how a website should be designed or how to hire the best designer but, the importance of having the best web host is often not considered an important topic to discuss.
So, why do designers and developers need a web host?

The world has gone digital and everything in it automatically follows. Jobs are no longer stereotyped to be activities where you have to sit on a boring chair all day. Nowadays, people can work anywhere they want, thanks to the Internet.
As the Internet becomes a viable option for job opportunities, conventional job seeking has becoming archaic. With that, job seeking has also gone the same. Answering job advertisements or looking at classified ads are growing less and less popular because freelancing is becoming a more viable option.
But before going full-fledged freelance, you need to remember a few things. One of these is that you should start working on how to launch your online portfolio.
Portfolios can be hard copies of the projects that you have done. Yes, some people still do that but since we are now at the digital information age, a website can be a perfect substitute.Read More
The frailty of creatives is that they never get 100% content with their creation. As Leonardo Vinci said, “Art is never finished, only abandoned.” It resounds true to most designers. There’s always a little bit of regret when closing a project they’ve spent several hours to a couple of weeks refining to the pixel. Creatives seem to have a problem on how to embrace imperfection.
As a writer I understand this too. I paint pictures with words and there are literally hundreds of ways to project an image, but only a handful of them put together will give the “right feel”.
Here are some questions for you:
- When designing, do you trust intuition or reason?
- Do you simply know what will work perfectly together or do you have a set of checklist to follow?
This article may be a bit gnomic in nature, perfect with your morning coffee when you are about to start your day with a flair but terrible to act as an “emergency” advice.Read More
