Posted - 12:10 pm

Tech savvy individuals or businesses that are planning to publish new websites sometimes debate about whether they should use third party web page hosting companies, or set up their own web page hosting servers. Here at webdevel.com, we believe our third party hosting service offers so many advantages over self-hosting that the decision should be a no-brainer. Here are 5 reasons why website publishers should opt for our web page hosting service. 1. Web Page Hosting Security It is unlikely that any computer user in the modern era is unaware of the problems caused by malicious software.

The account owners may be totally unaware that their email accounts are being used in this way. Email addresses that are identified as the source of spam email messages can end up being blacklisted. That means that legitimate emails from them may be blocked. Another possibility is that the email address from which the spam is coming can be […]
