In short, yes. A website is not set and forget and they are prone to attacks and hacking. The way to combat that is by making sure your website is regularly backed up and updated. Your website also requires ongoing performance scans and optimisations, uptime monitoring. From experience with our clients, we guarantee you will also make use of the unlimited support that comes with your care plan!
Website care is like servicing your car – if you don’t have regular maintenance carried out, your car will stop working properly, you will damage it and run into problems that cost tons to fix. Just like a car, your website needs regular care to keep it working 24/7 and insurance to protect it.
We take a proactive approach instead of a reactive approach with our care plans to make sure your website is safe, secure, and up to date. Read more about what you get and why it's so important on our website hosting and care page
Many hosts and don't meet our minimum standards in terms of speed, security and uptime. Most web hosts are charging too much to provide you with an old technology called 'shared hosting'. This means your website shares space on one server with thousands of other websites, increasing their profits, whilst drastically slowing down your page load speeds and causing other issues. As a result, you get slow load times, visitors abandoning your website, poor search rankings (Google punishes slow websites) and lost business.
We cannot deliver the results that we promise on substandard hosting and only work with businesses that are serious about their website's performance. We will build and launch your new website on our state of the art 'cloud' hosting. And, you pay less than you would to these other dubious web hosts.
Even better - if you are on a website care plan, you get our hosting thrown in for no extra charge.
If you have a domain name, great! You don't need to change anything. We can get your site set up with what you have as your domain name provider does not have any affect the performance of your website. If you need us to register a domain name for you, we can take care of this.
