Studies have shown online shoppers wait a maximum of just three seconds for a website to load. Most shared hosting services can't even provide that for a basic page, let alone a powerful ecommerce platform such as Magento.
Many hosting providers include a quick installer for Magento, but installation is only the beginning! The most important part is what happens next.
All of our services are fully managed as standard. This gives your server more loving attention from our experienced engineers for no extra cost! We continuously monitor and optimise your servers for optimum performance and reliability - proactively resolving any issues we identify for you along the way.
We rigorously guarantee every aspect of our service - and unlike other providers that even extends to our legendary 24x7 technical support to make certain that you always get timely help whenever it's needed.
Security is critical for ecommerce. Your success depends on it, as does your reputation and customer confidence.
All of our services support the latest industrial strength encryption technologies to establish maximum security connections between your customers and your website server. This is ready for you right out of the box.
To boost your sales further we recommend using an Extended Validation (EV) SSL certificate and trust logo. These are shown to increase customer confidence and reduce cart abandonment rates.
Does your hosting provider include backups with their service? Shockingly, many don't. Those that do often only backup your data once per week, or if you're really "lucky" perhaps you found a provider who takes a daily backup for you and charges you for the luxury?
That sounds nice and reassuring, but did you ever consider the impact on your business if you lost 24 hours of data - 24 hours worth of valuable sales and new customer accounts? Studies have shown that 70% of businesses cease trading after a major data loss!
We take full backups of your server every 6 hours as standard (upgrades are available). This gets you back to 'business as usual' as soon as possible if disaster recovery is ever required.
As an integral part of your security practice, you need to ensure PCI DSS compliance.
Our engineers can configure your servers to exceed the required security standards, and because your security is so important to us we guarantee to apply critical OS security patches to your servers within 24 hours of vendor release. Our engineers use specially crafted tools and techniques to do this with no downtime or disruption to your service, meaning that you benefit from the increased security as soon as possible.
