We’ll handle the 100 little technical things to give you the edge

Having built 76 websites over the years I know a thing or two about building stuff on the web.

However, with just 35 websites in my supported web hosting portfolio I’m able to provide the personal touch. You’re not just a number and with one of my supported WordPress web hosting plans – your website will get all the attention it needs.

Our hosting is super fast, UK based and committed to great customer service. Oh, and it’s totally eco friendly.

Your website will be properly cared for

Our hosting is more extensive than the “set it and forget it” hosting of many providers, with which after they upload your website you’re on your own.

We won’t let things run out of date. For each of our hosting packages we’ll keep your WordPress installations, plugins and themes up to date (subject to the continuing validity of pro licences for any software you introduce).

Your website will be local

Our web hosting is local too, which means your websites can be served quicker to visitors in the UK. No transatlantic internet traffic slowdowns to contend with.

Your website will be green

This doesn’t relate to the style of your website! All our data centres are powered by 100% renewable energy from the sun, wind and sea.

You'll enjoy priority customer service

Over the last few years there’s been a bad trend in web hosting: literally hundreds of hosting companies have been gobbled up by two big-hitters called EIG and GoDaddy.

They buy small, dedicated hosts and “optimise” them for profitability, squeezing their customer support down to a bare minimum and moving on. Interestingly, they keep each acquired brand separate, so when people get dissatisfied and switch hosts they could well end up moving to another host owned by the same monopoly, only to experience the same problems.

Our hosting is backed by Krystal, who have a fundamental commitment to remain fully independent and customer-focused. They’re a family owned business but they’re also the largest independent UK hosting company. This means they hit the sweet spot of being large enough to be rock-solid reliable but also independent enough to provide great customer service.

Why does my website need to be maintained?


Maintenance boosts your website’s performance

Website speed is important. It’s not just about convenience, it makes real-world difference to the effectiveness of a website. Search engines now consider the speed of a website in their search results ranking, so a slow site is likely to get demoted in the Google search result rankings.

The experts say that as the load time of a web page increases from 1 second to 7 seconds, the probability of a mobile visitor giving up and bouncing out increases 113%. [Source: Think With Google].

One of the best ways to make sure you’re meeting your visitor’s expectations is by ensuring your website is kept up to date and in optimum working order.


Maintenance boosts your security

They say prevention is better than a cure. Of course you could simply put your website on a cheap hosting package and hope for the best, but if things ever go wrong in future you may end up paying out more to a developer to fix things. Supported hosting will make sure things are kept running shipshape.

The internet is a rapidly evolving place with new opportunities and threats popping up all the time. Keeping core files, themes and plugins up to date is essential for keeping your business and/or visitor’s data safe. Of course this is especially important for e-commerce websites that handle customer information.

The difficult part is that updates to several interlinking technologies may introduce new incompatibilities. Our experience managing a wide variety of WordPress websites over the years puts us in a good place to spot and solve issues, potential or developing.

We keep up to date with threats in the industry and respond to any vulnerabilities fast. This means peace of mind for you.


Maintenance boosts your content

They say content is king, and it’s true. Regular updates to content is key to attracting customers through search engines and providing them a helpful service. 

Supported hosting means we’re on hand to update your content. Whether it’s just small changes to text, photos, videos, links or other media, or more extensive edits like new pages, blog posts or products, our bronze, silver and gold plans allow you to send us new content and we’ll manage edits for you.

Of course, if we’ve built the site we’re the best people to manage its content as we’ll know all the ins and outs of your website, making our work efficient and cutting out hassle for you.

Do you already have a WordPress website?

I can move it to your new hosting account for you.

Ask me about migrating your website. I’ll do it with no downtime and all within 48 hours. Only £50 with the purchase of the bronze hosting plan or FREE with the gold or silver plans.
