Important Considerations when choosing Web Hosting
The type of web hosting you have can have a huge impact on the success of your online business.
If your online business is local to the UK it is important that it is hosted on UK servers. This has an impact not only on the performance of your website in terms of speed, but also with Google search. With all other ranking factors being equal, a UK based website will rank higher than one hosted overseas.
Sometimes things can go wrong! You may have made a change on your site which breaks it, you may be having email issues, or your site may have been hacked. Your first line of support is us at CGain via email or telephone. In turn we are backed by our hosting provider with 24/7 support for all our clients.
We use one of the UK and Europe’s top hosting platforms for web developers. Whilst this does not come cheap, we are confident that we have the best possible technical infrastructure available. This results in faster performance and minimal downtime. SSD ‘solid state drives’, for example, come as standard. Typically, our websites run up 100% + faster than those of our competitors.
Most of our clients happily host their websites on standard business shared-hosting servers. As your business grows you will benefit from scaling up to VPS (Virtual Private Server), Dedicated or Managed Hosting platforms. Upgrades and downgrades can be performed at any time to suit your needs.
