Web Hosting Services Melbourne

It’s easy to think of the internet as some great omnipotent force, always accessible and answering our questions with the press of a few buttons. It’s almost supernatural, how this great invisible thing that we can access on any device anywhere at any time is just always there. Carrying seemingly all the information in the world, and all the content we could hope for. Our entertainment and our teacher. 

But where does it all come from? 

After all websites don’t just happen, and despite how it appears we know that websites are indeed something that is planned, designed, built, and then put onto the internet. But that’s the great question, what is it to put something on the internet? How does that happen? Where is the change from data within a computer program, to data within cyberspace? The answer is web hosting.

From monthly web hosting services in Melbourne and shared hosting to dedicated hosting and cloud hosting, we offer the full suite of web hosting packages that are tailored to your requirements.

What is Web Hosting?

If you’ve ever looked up “how does the internet work?” it’s likely you’ve seen an image representing the internet as a cloud. The truth is far more physical. The internet isn’t a cloud, it’s more like a huge series of hard drives all wired together. 

Internet Service Providers, or ISPs, build and maintain massive complexes known as “Data Centres.” These data centres house hundreds of super computers called “Servers,” which we’ll return to in a moment. The ISPs are also responsible for running colossal lengths of Optical Fibre Cabling either underground or under the seabed. This cabling runs to “main” hubs that are owned and operated by ISPs, which then run to local hubs that provide the nodes that connect residences and shops to the internet through modems and routers. 

So how do we access the internet? Well, the process begins whenever you put an enquiry into a search engine or website domain to your browser. From here, the computer sends a request to something called the DNS (Domain Name System), which is essentially a massive online phone book. The DNS uses the domain name you looked up to search for an IP address, which is essentially the home address of a website. Once it finds the IP, it connects you to the appropriate server, which sends a light signal through the optic fibre cabling to your router. Your router converts the light signal into an electric one, then sends it to your device either through an ethernet cable or Wi-Fi. 

It’s kind of like if whenever you wanted to visit a friend, you pressed a button that made their house sprout wheels and then drive to your doorstep. When you press the button, you’re requesting access to your friend. The request is sent to their home address and once the request is accepted, their house arrives to you in a matter of seconds, with the roads used to achieve this serving as the optic fibre cables. 

So now you know exactly how the internet works, what does any of this have to do with web hosting?  

Well, you remember those Servers we mentioned earlier. If you can picture websites as tenants, then Servers are massive apartment complexes, and the apartments are the many solid state drives that house multiple websites. 

When you construct a website, the result will be a bunch of data in one form or another, and to be accessible to the public, that data needs to be on a server. Web hosting is when a company charges a fee to allow your website to take up real estate on their server(s), thereby giving you a “place” on the internet. Until your website is on a server, it’s really just an exercise in coding and design. Once it’s finished it needs a site on the web hence – website. Without web hosting no one will be able to access your website, and bad web hosting can have disastrous results for your business. 

This is where Traffic Radius can help you out. 

Give Your Website the Right Home

Web hosting is a service that allows you to publish your website on the Internet. When you buy a hosting package, you are essentially renting some space on the web host’s server to store all the data and files needed for your business website to work perfectly.

Think about your personal computer and all the files on it. These files are stored on your computer’s hard disk. You can access these files anytime you like. A website is a file just like one of your word processing files. Just as a word processing document must be stored on the computer for you to be able to retrieve it, your website also needs a computer to store all its files.

The difference here is that websites are accessible by everyone. To be able to do that, the computer (your web host’s server) where your website is stored should be of much higher specification than your personal computer, and it must also be connected to the internet via a powerful link.

The computer where your website is stored is referred to as a web server (as it serves pages upon request to your website visitors).

In a way, a web host is the home where your website will live. So it’s important to choose the right home (web hosting service) for your website.

Web Hosting – The First Step to a Successful Online Presence

Your online presence is incomplete without a stunning website. And your website is incomplete (and invisible) without the right web hosting service.

So before you start your online business or know how to host a website, it helps to know all you can about web hosting and how the hosting company you choose can have an impact on your website and your online presence.

Your website will be visible to your visitors only if you store it somewhere. So your web host makes your website’s content visible to your visitors. However, a web host can do a lot more than that.

The right web host can ensure your website is visible and runs smoothly 24/7. Here at Traffic Radius, we assure you of 99.99% uptime, which means that your website will always be up. The lower the uptime assurance, the higher are the chances of your website not being available. And for your online business to success, uninterrupted availability is very important.

Website load time is another critical aspect that can make or break your online presence. Moreover, it has a direct impact on the user experience and determines whether your visitors will come back to your site. Every 1-second delay in load speed can reduce your conversions by 7%. Furthermore, websites that rank on top of Google search results load under 2 seconds. As the best web hosting service in Melbourne, we assure you of fast load time.

Contact Traffic Radius before buying any hosting plans.

Factors to Consider when Hosting Your Website

  • Server Reliability
  • Site Backups
  • Customer Service
  • Plans
  • Security

Server Reliability

Unstable network connections and weak servers can often result in your website going offline. That will not only have a negative impact on your sales but will affect your rankings in the search engines. A good host assures you of good uptime scores. Anything above 99.5% is good. Any uptime score below 99% is no good. Avoid such web hosting services.

Site Backups

Cyber threats are commonplace in today’s times. Hence, the smallest of website security measures can help protect your business. What if your website is hacked only to be lost forever? However, if your web host offers regular site backups, you can retrieve your website easily.

Customer Service

A reliable host is one that offers prompt and fast customer support by way of live support, chat support or social media visibility. The faster your host can respond to your technical problems, the better it is.


Undoubtedly, website hosting cost is an important consideration for most small businesses. However, that should never be the deciding factor. Instead, focus on the value the web hosting is offering. Are they able to create a customised hosting plan to suit your needs?


Your web host must invest in the latest security software and stellar firewalls to prevent a variety of online attacks.

Web Hosting in Melbourne, Trusted Australia-Wide

Traffic Radius is a marketing company, however we’re also active in the web development and design sphere, and today we are a trusted provider of web hosting services in Melbourne.


As a web hosting company, we offer the following services:


  • Content Delivery Network: A “Content Delivery Network” is a series of servers linked together. Traffic Radius has invested heavily in our very own CDN, to ensure that no matter where you are, your customers will always have access to your website with superior speed. Not only this, but with an impressive 99% uptime across our CDN, you can be assured that your website will always be up for your customers to access.


  • Managed WordPress Hosting: Traffic Radius work very closely with WordPress, so if your website was made using the WordPress CMS not only do we provide hosting, but we also take care of maintaining and managing your website!

  • Performance Monitoring: We are all about results at Traffic Radius, to this end we are continuously monitoring our websites, seeing what people engage with, what’s driving conversions, and what changes need to be made to any problem areas or pain points.


  • Security: Security is hugely important when it comes to web hosting, and Traffic Radius understands that the safety of your website is paramount to its success, and your success is always our end goal. Therefore, we have implemented only the most up-to-date and strongest security measures across our CDN.


  • SSL Certification: The Secure Sockets Layer Protocol determines whether a website is trustworthy through the presence of an SSL Certificate. Since the SSL Protocol is one of the most widespread web security measures, not having this certification is really just shooting yourself in the foot.

For this reason, when people search for a website, they instead search for the domain name attached to a particular IP, such as YouTube or Google. Traffic Radius will help you choose a domain name that will be appealing and easily memorable to your audience, and help you buy the rights to the name with a registered domain registrar.When you hire Traffic Radius not only do you get all this and more, but you hire a team of dedicated individuals working together as a cohesive unit.
