Kirkcaldy, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/09/2015 -- The average British person now spends one in every six hours online, according to research carried out by the Internet Advertising Bureau and the UK Online Measurement Company. 73,000 people were involved in the study which found that people also spent an average of two hours and 51 minutes on the internet each day in the first half of the year.
Yet people are not only spending more time on the internet, but they are actively seeking the most efficient methods of doing so. For example, more than half the time those surveyed spent online was on mobile devices – often involving the quick checking of accessible sites.
News of ever-increasing internet usage is not necessarily surprising but has big implications for business. The need for businesses to be online, responsive across devices and well-hosted is now necessary rather than an option. Businesses which do not stand-out online are most likely set to lose revenue quickly, and getting into a good position online is constructed through having strong basic foundations – especially in the form of hosting.
UKHost4U is a key example of a website hosting company providing a variety of services allowing organizations as well as individuals to make their sites accessible through The World Wide Web. They uphold the importance of having quality hosting in the apparent 'internet age' and frequently comment on industry news.
A spokesperson had this to say:
"British internet usage seems to be accelerating all the time, so if you have a website, it is essential that you know how to get it into a position that will get noticed across devices. The first place to start, and yet which many people overlook, is the hosting package. As web hosts, we provide valuable server space which allows sites to be in a highly visible position – and this matters."
