What are brand guidelines?

Your brand guidelines usually come in the form of an instruction manual and playbook on how to communicate your brand.

It lays out all the visual details, as well as important notes about the company’s voice, tone, and messaging. It comes in the form of a physical or digital booklet filled with examples of what to do and what not to do.

Brand guidelines comprehensively cover a company’s brand identity, including:

  • Overview – your brand’s history, vision, personality and key values.
  • Brand message or mission statement – including examples of ‘tone of voice’.
  • Logo usage – where and how to use your logo including minimum sizes, spacing and what not to do with it.
  • Colour palette – showing your primary and secondary colour palettes with colour breakdowns for print, screen and web.
  • Type style – showing the specific font that you use and details of the font family and default fonts for web use.
  • Image style/photography – examples of image style and photographs that work with the brand.
  • Business card and letterhead design – examples of how the logo and font are used for standard company literature.

When companies take the time to create brand guidelines, it helps to ensure that their brand image stays consistent no matter where it shows up. This will pay off big time in the long run, as your company will generate the familiarity and reliability that open the doors to brand loyalty.

What is Web Hosting?

Websites are hosted on servers, which are powerful pieces of hardware that house websites and data related to those sites. Every component of your website is stored on a server and accessed through your web host. This includes elements like files, text, images and videos.

Servers are physically located in data centres, which are typically run and managed by different web hosting companies.

Web hosts provide the technology and server space required for your website to be accessed on the Internet. This allows users to search for your site and view your web pages online.

How do you know which hosting option is best for your website?

The type of server you choose impacts elements like performance, security, scalability, and management level of your website. Your decision also depends on the type of website you have and the amount of traffic you get.

For example, a small personal blog with 5,000 monthly visitors have different hosting needs than a large e-commerce site with 250,000 visits per month. It’s also worth noting that different hosting options are offered at varying price points. So it’s important that you find an option that falls within your budget as well.

Who is Shared Hosting For?

Shared hosting is a great choice for beginners and smaller websites. It’s cost-effective and doesn’t require lots of technical knowledge to get started.

I’d recommend shared web hosting to websites that are on a tight budget. Bloggers and small business owners who have simple websites are great candidates for shared hosting. Any website that doesn’t require too much on-site interaction or lots of resources will be fine with this hosting type.

If you’re not expecting more than 10,000 or 20,000 monthly visits to your website, you can save some money by selecting a shared web hosting plan.

Shared web hosting benefits:

  • Most cost-effective type of web hosting.
  • Easy to set up.
  • No technical knowledge required.
  • Great for beginners and small websites.

Who is Dedicated Hosting For?

Dedicated hosting plans are typically reserved for enterprise-level websites. That means more than 100,000 monthly visits — not to mention plenty of revenue coming in to afford the server.

Don’t even consider this type of hosting if you’re still struggling to pull in a few thousand in traffic each month.

Large ecommerce sites and enterprises should consider a dedicated hosting plan because they can have complete control over the functions of their server. Sites that require the highest levels of security, such as websites that store financial data or medical information would benefit from a dedicated server.

Dedicated servers come with varying management levels. You can look for a hosting provider that will manage your server for you, or you can manage it on your own. The downside of managing the server on your own is that you’ll be responsible for installing updates and monitoring everything for glitches or errors.

Dedicated hosting benefits:

  • Complete control over the server.
  • Not sharing resources with any other websites.
  • High security.
  • Fast load times, high up-times, and optimal performance.
