How Did 4DP Help
Lismore Bathrooms contacted Four Drunk Parrots because they wanted to change the phone number on the website.
Sounds easy right?
Well, little did we know that this was a bigger job than we had anticipated.
How did we do it?
Glenn trusted us with his website changes, but he had no record of any details from his hosting. At this point, we were not able to access his website. All we needed to do is was contact his web designer or web host. Easily said but there was no sign of either of them. The solution was to clone his website. In that process, we redesigned and started hosting his site on our server.
What is hosting and why is good hosting so important?
Web hosting provides the technologies and services needed for the website to be viewed on the Internet. Websites are hosted, or stored on servers. But why is good hosting so important? The choice of the host has a significant influence on your overall success.
Here are some important facts when choosing the right host for you.
Have your security in mind
A quality host will take care of these things. They will look after regular website backups, firewalls, and other methods to protect the webserver and the datacenter as a whole.
Support is everything
Imagine something on your website breaks or you have an error message you don’t understand. Well, many things can go wrong, and there is nobody you can ask for help. With the right support, your website can be restored to its fully-functional state.
Minimise the loss of sales
Do you rely on your website to generate leads or are you selling products? Let’s be honest every minute offline will cost you money. Your host does have an impact on something called uptime. Uptime is how often you can expect your site to be online. A high-quality host should have an uptime guarantee of 99.9%, which means your website should be online 99.9% of the time.
Boost performance and SEO
Your sites loading speed and its overall performance have an impact on how you are ranking. Your website takes too long to load, which will lead to a high bounce rate and also relates to poor user experience. Take the time to optimise your site with your host.
Have secured site content
File loss does happen due to a failed backup, or the host you have chosen is going out of business. You might save a little bit of money upfront but make sure you have a trustworthy and experienced web host.
We can help you if you are unable to contact your host, your web designer or you need support doing changes, or you have a reoccurring error message on your website. We offer secure hosting, and you can rest assured that your website is in safe hands.
