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 dedicated 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, website files, 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 affordable web hosting plans, 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.
