Hosting and website maintenance

Small Business Webistes hosting

We offer great hosting and website support that comes as part of every website package as standard to get you online immediately.

Hosting makes your website available on the web and the maintenance we offer makes sure that it’s available 24/7, and your customers have a great browsing experience.

 

Hosting capabilities

A safe, secure, reliable hosting solution is vital for any business website and that’s exactly what we provide every customer. The servers that we use are provided by one of the few hosting companies in the UK to be ISO9001, ISO27001 and ISO14001 certified. They are protected by a firewall and we take a daily back-up of all of our customer sites.

We also host your website in the UK so that Google will give it preference in UK search results, and the site will be optimised for UK traffic so will therefore run faster.

With our hosting solution you get…

  • Safe, secure, reliable servers
  • 99.9% guaranteed uptime
  • Unlimited monthly bandwidth
  • 1GB of web space/storage
  • UK-based server location
  • Domain name set-up and administration
  • Email forwarding

 

General maintenance and support

We will…

1. Ensure your website works on most browsers at all times

We are constantly updating and checking our platform as new browsers and browser versions are released. When this happens, the way the browser reads code can change and make inconsistencies appear on websites. We promise to ensure that our websites work on 80% of browsers – the ones that are most commonly used in the UK and that aren’t years out of date, for example we won’t support IE6 when the latest version is IE11.

 

2. Fix issues should hacking occur

Your website is stored on a secure server with firewall protection. In the very unlikely event that a hacking attempt be made on your website, Small Business Websites will work to resolve all issues and do all we can to protect against future attempts.

 

3. Set up Google Analytics for your website

We will add Google Analytics tracking code to your website and link to your Google Account so you can log in and access your website’s visitor data.

 

4. Create a Google Sitemap

We will create an XML site map and submit it to Google upon launch of your site. It will automatically update and new pages will be submitted to Google following any web updates.

 

5. Verify your site with Google

We will verify your site with Google Webaster Tools once it has launched to ensure Google will crawl your website and list your website pages in its search results.
