Website Hosting & Maintenance
Website hosting and maintenance is just part of life when it comes to having an online presence. You see, good quality website hosting ensures your content gets delivered to your audience in a speedy manner and also considers security and privacy. We like to think that as well as being the best builders to create your website, we are also the best caretakers of it once it’s up and running.
No-Brainer Website Hosting
With our years of experience and know-how we can expertly take care of your hosting and website maintenance needs. Our packages offer quality security measures, regular back-ups and ongoing tweaks to your content. Basically, we’re your one-stop-web-shop from your initial website idea, to the build, the launch and right through to the ongoing nurturing of your online presence. After all, getting you noticed on the Internet is our mantra.
Hosting You Can Rely On
Owning a domain and hosting your website are two of the most vital things you must have to build an online presence.
Letting us handle this for you means you’ll be safe in the knowledge that we are providing you with the best website hosting platform for your requirements.
Our hosting service is built on high spec, fast, UK cloud-based servers, and comes feature-packed to give you a premium service as standard.
When we think about having a top-notch website, we also think of speed and website speed is a strong SEO signal for Google – more to hosting than meets the eye, you see.
Once your website is hosted on a great platform meaning it’s always there and always fast when people visit it, who’s going to look after it?
Websites are not set-and-forget, they need to be maintained, especially when they are built on the most popular CMS (content management system) in the world, WordPress.
More than 32% of the Internet is now based on the WordPress CMS. We develop all our websites for our clients on this platform.
To counteract cyber-security threats we implement measures to keep your website safe and protected. We keep all our clients’ sites up to date with the latest version of the CMS and all the relevant plugins to keep any potential vulnerabilities to a complete minimum.
All this means you can sleep soundly at night knowing your website is protected and we’ve got you covered.
If you require email addresses at your domain name and are not currently using any 3rd party services for this such as Microsoft Office 365 or Google’s G-Suite, then we can also supply you with email addresses and help you to configure them on your devices.
This means you can go about your day-to-day business with the knowledge that your email is hosted in the best possible environment and you have support when you need it from the team at Website Energizers.
You don’t need to understand the nuts and bolts if you don’t want to as we take full ownership to give you total peace of mind.
Maintenance Made Easy
Our website maintenance service includes the implementation of all necessary security measures to keep your website safe and protected. Our service also includes daily backups of your site so if in the highly unlikely event there was ever an issue, we can have you back up and running again in no time.
We are also here to help you with any minor tweaks to the content of your website. Maybe you want a blog posting to your site or you want some words changed on one of your web pages. Perhaps you’d like to add a new image or update an existing one. We do all these kind of changes for you as part of our website hosting and maintenance service. We are available Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm to take your call or you can send us the information via email and we’ll get on to it as soon as possible.
The only thing left for you to worry about is renewing your domain each year in your domain registrar account. If you want us to take care of this as well we can do, giving you 100% confidence that your website is fast, secure, always online, never expires and always looks great!
Hosting & Maintenance Packages
We don’t think it’s fair to charge everyone the same for hosting and maintenance of their website. Some people know what they are doing and so only need hosting space whilst others don’t understand the world of websites at all and so want everything done for them. With this in mind we have created three separate hosting packages for you to choose from:
This one is good if you just need your website hosted, you know your way around a website and are happy to handle all updates yourself. You’ll also need to do your own backups and ensure your website is secured against potential cyber-attacks. Our Bronze hosting package allows you to have up to two email addresses hosted on our server if you don’t already use another email provider.
If you don’t have the know-how when it comes to backups and security, this could be the package for you. In addition to hosting your website, we backup your site every day and install security features to protect you from those nasty cyber-attacks. You can have up to 3 email addresses on this package if you need them. When it comes to website updates and content tweaks, you’ll need to do them yourself on this package or we can do them for you on an hourly rate.
Gold Hosting and Maintenance
Our most popular website hosting and maintenance package gives you complete peace of mind. We host your website and look after everything for you including backups, security, updates and content tweaks. You can have up to 5 email addresses on this package and we can even look after your domains for you, renewing them each year so you really don’t have to worry about anything going wrong.
We don't hold you to any contracts so you are free to leave whenever you want to. Although we'd hate to see you go!
We offer pay-monthly options to spread costs and help your marketing budget go further.
Common Questions Answered
It’s not easy to understand all this website hosting and website maintenance lingo so we’ve answered some questions you might have below. If you’re still a bit puzzled, don’t worry, we are here to explain and take the headache away, just get in touch!
What does it mean to host a site?
Can I buy a domain without hosting?
Why do we need website maintenance?
Having a faulty website means that less people will use it, and so this means less customers. Website maintenance is crucial to ensure the upkeep of your website and guarantee that it runs smoothly. A fully functioning website channels more customers towards it than a broken one, so we make sure we are on top of maintaining your website’s quality.
Technology advances more with each day that passes, and so website maintenance can guarantee that your website is up to date. Websites need maintenance in the same way a car needs regular MOTs: having your website maintained will highlight any issues or faults as they arise meaning that we can fix the issue quickly and promptly.
Can I do my own website updates?
Whenever we create a website for our customers, we always make sure you can have complete access to it. If you feel comfortable to make simple content changes then go ahead, it’s your website. When we give you the keys we do show you around and explain what’s what. However, if you don’t have the time or inclination to make changes we would suggest our Gold hosting package which means you only have to let us know what you need changing or tweaking and we will get right onto it for you.
It’s also worth saying that the updates we’ve been talking about are minor content changes. Anything bigger or more substantial, then it’s best to have a chat and let us know what you want to do so we can sort it for you. We wouldn’t want anything happening to the website you didn’t mean to happen.
What happens during website maintenance?
Websites are not set-and-forget, they need to be maintained, especially when they are built on the most popular CMS in the world. Its success means WordPress is constantly being tested for vulnerabilities by hackers performing different types of activities such as taking websites offline, injecting bad code into them and stealing data. We don’t worry too much about the hackers though, because we always implement measures to keep them at bay.
We also keep all our clients’ sites up to date with the latest version of WordPress and all the relevant plugins to keep any vulnerabilities to a complete minimum. We are all used to making sure our security is up to date when it comes to having Anti-Virus software on our computers and being careful online. Websites are no different and we should make sure they are secure.
