This is a guest post by Sathishkumar, who is the editor of TechieMania. It’s an obvious fact that you will need the features of a web hosting service if you want to get your website online. Web hosting services can be and normally are used for a wide range of purposes including personal sites, blogs, social networking sites and even e-commerce sites. However, what is not very obvious to many people is the important role a web hosting service plays in the website’s search engine optimization (SEO). This is one area you must be definitely aware of as being proactive about this can lead to significant gains in incoming traffic from search engines.

Domain and URL Structure

Before you even create the actual website, you will need to choose a domain name. It’s probably a good idea to get a domain name well before finalizing a web hosting plan. This allows for a fresh beginning and squeezes out any room for problems. If, however, you have already registered a domain name with another web host, then you need not worry as transferring the name to a new host isn’t very difficult. However, take note that there are some exceptions.

The domain name you choose and the structure of your URL play a very vital role in the SEO of your website. In case the domain name includes a keyword that is associated with your niche, then it will be a major advantage when it comes to search engine rankings. Your URLs are just as important and most web hosting services allow you to build custom URLs. When used in the right manner, this combination is a fantastic way to increase the visibility of your site among search engines.

Search Engine Friendly Features

With more and more people realizing the benefits of SEO for their websites, a lot of web hosting companies have begun offering features and tools to help you with the same. A few might offer you tools for your keyword, so that you can correctly optimize every page of your website. Another very common feature is the stats program, which allows you to see the number of people and their respective nationalities visiting your site. These tools also give out information on the search engine spiders that visit your site and their recent frequency of visit. Some may also offer you free marketing credits, free search engine submissions and a lot more. Even the most basic web hosting packages are loaded with an array of tools that help in your website’s SEO.

Picking the Correct Solution

Although a webmaster exercises the maximum control over a website’s SEO, the importance of web hosting in the same cannot and should not be underestimated. This makes it doubly important to find a reliable and yet cost effective web host. With so many service providers out there, finding a good and yet affordable one is no longer that hard. When finalizing a web host, remember that you are basically trusting that company with your website’s search rankings and thereby your website’s fate. A high level of research is thus necessary as picking the wrong one will surely do more harm than good.
