If your business relies on its website for ecommerce or for generating business leads, it’s vital to have a fast and reliable web host. Google will even penalise websites that are too slow, especially on mobile devices.
What should you look for?
There are a lot of web hosting providers out there, and most of them are relatively inexpensive. The most important thing is to choose a provider that ensures great performance, based on the volume of web traffic you’re expecting.
We always recommend using an SSL Certificate for your website. This protects sensitive data like credit card transactions, data transfer and logins, by allowing secure connections between a browser and web server. It also gives visitors extra reassurance that your website is genuine, since they’ll see a padlock and “https” in the URL. Although primarily a security protocol, SSL is rapidly becoming a necessity for all websites, since it’s favoured by search engines like Google.
How Dr Logic can help
We offer an affordable web hosting service, and if you’re switching from another provider we can also manage the migration process. We’ll handle all the associated admin, including the renewals process for hosting and SSL certificates, so you don’t need to worry about suddenly finding your website unavailable. We bill monthly for this service, alongside your regular support contract.
Domain name management
Your domain name (your company’s internet address on the internet) is a vital asset both for your business and your brand. It’s a digital reproduction of your brand so must be protected. Your current domain names are probably already registered with a provider, and will renew annually. However, it’s important to keep track of these renewals, so you don’t accidentally allow them to lapse – for example, if someone leaves your company, or a credit card expires.

Maintaining domains can be a time-consuming administrative task. We can manage the end-to-end process for you, ensuring that your domains are proactively managed and simplifying the billing.
In today’s digital marketplace, a website or web app is often a client or customer’s first – and in some cases only – point of contact with your company. So you need it to create as good an impression as possible – to be beautifully designed and user-friendly, as well as stable and secure.
But hiring your own in-house web development team is expensive – not just in terms of salary and recruitment costs, but all the hardware they’ll need. And if you can only afford one or two developers, will they be able to produce a fully functional and tested site or app as quickly as you need?
That’s why your best bet is often to outsource the project – for example to a web development house. But however technically skilled they are, how can you be sure that they’ll really understand your particular business needs? Or that your new site or app will work seamlessly with the rest of your IT systems?
