A website is made up of a combination of files. When someone comes to your website they need to be able to access those files. When we talk about hosting, we’re talking about space on a server that stores all of your files so people from all over the world can access them when they visit your website. Every website in the world, bar none, has to be hosted, for it to become a viable, working website.
Why Our Clients Like Hosting with Us.
Just because we build your website doesn’t at all mean you have to host with us.
But here are some of the reasons most of our clients like to do so:
Personal Support – You’ll have our office phone number and our support email addresses. If you ever need support, you won’t be sitting on hold with a large hosting company; you’ll be talking to us.
Email – we set up, maintain and manage all your email requirements. We also offer remote support to help you set up/configure email accounts, and to trouble shoot any email issues you may have. (if you wish to have external Email arrangements, that is fine also, we will work with your Email client to ensure your website mail is correctly routed)
Regular Updates – Your hosting will be periodically updated to improve both security and performance. We include the cost of monthly security and performance updates in the price of our hosting to ensure you’ll always be running the most up-to-date hosting for your website available.
Website Backups – We understand the peace of mind that comes along with knowing your data is backed up. That’s why we store database backups including full site backups (including your files and database).
Know Your Hosting isn’t a cheap package – we can ensure your website isn’t sharing space with any shady or risky websites, and your hosting solution is not a cheap deal with low bandwidth and poor control panel functions.
99.6% Uptime – In the last 12 months, we’ve had 99.6% uptime. We monitor our websites and, in the rare event our sites go down for whatever reason, we’re on the phone with our hosting partner typically before any of our clients realise something is amiss.
Scalable – if your website changes, maybe has extra functionality added, we will ensure your hosting is scaled to match its requirements. You won’t need to worry about arranging this. We do all the work for you.
Last, but by no means least, speed & reliability of access – We prefer to host your website because we know we can access the files, data or anything else we need to quickly and without any fuss. We are also very familiar with your hosting software and functionality. This means any website updates you request will be carried out swiftly and without hitches.
