Have you ever noticed that the majority of websites lose their attractiveness a few months after their opening? Yes, it happens with 80% of Internet resources around the world. The guilt in this is not design or content. The main reason is the lack of qualified support for the site. The laborious process of creating a site is already completed! However, it is not enough just to create a site and leave it unattended – any Internet resource needs care. Since usually if you do not care about the support of the Internet resource, the money invested in it, time and effort will be wasted, and your site will quickly lose its high position in search engines. So you doom your own Internet project, if not for the final failure, then for a miserable lifeless existence. For the proper existence of websites a necessary condition is an element of information support.
If eyes are windows to the soul, then websites are windows to your business.

Storage allows your website to store files such as images, text, PDFs, videos, music and other files.
The more bandwidth you have, the more website data your visitors will be able to view. The technical term we’re referencing here is a little backward – data sent to your visitors; what this means in layman’s terms is “visitors requesting data;” and by requesting data, we mean visiting your site.
It simply refers to the amount of time your website is “up” or “online.”
What is an SSL? SSL stands for “Secure Sockets Layer.” SSL is a security technology that’s widely used for establishing encrypted connections between a server and client.

“Responsive Design (Mobile Design)”
Responsive design is a web design approach that makes use of flexible layouts, flexible images and cascading style sheet queries. In other words, it’s a design technique that allows a website to shape-shift and adjust it’s layout and size to best fit whatever screen size is trying to view it.
