Web hosting…the good, the bad and the best!


Flaky emails and website downtime are the nemesis of many a business owner. How often do you find yourself muttering at the slowness of a website when you’re trying to make a purchase? Stressing because your emails outbound or inbound seem to be stuck in an invisible queue, showing no sign of materialising?

For the uninitiated, understanding domain names and hosting and all that they entail can be as complicated as being able to speak another language. Let’s face it, as a business you want your website to be responsive and to know your emails are flying out through cyber space in the blink of an eye. How this happens isn’t really our concern – it just needs to happen. This starts with your hosting package.

Many companies offer a ‘traditional hosting perspective’, combining the hosting of your website and management of your email under one umbrella. This can cause a multitude of issues ranging from being inundated with spam emails, the ability to get hacked and 1000’s upon 1000’s of websites all scrapping for space causing a slow service and inadvertently putting your server on e-mail blacklists meaning that your e-mails go into junk or may not be received at all!

We do it differently. The servers we use are brand new and totally optimised to take tons of traffic and load website pages extremely quickly, think hyperspeed! All our hosting packages come with unlimited bandwidth and storage space.

Using Microsoft or Gmail for email brings huge benefits including a fantastic support service and the aim to keep your lights on 24/7, 365 days a year. Gmail offer a 99.9% guaranteed uptime, 0% planned downtime, using Microsoft for email gives you access to free Microsoft Office programs as well as business class e-mail service.
