    Is your website mobile friendly?


    If not, you should be aware that Google has recently released a mobile algorithm update that will reward mobile responsive websites with higher search results, while penalising mobile unfriendly websites by burying or removing those sites entirely from the mobile search index.


    All the sites we build are mobile friendly as standard.

So what are your hosting options?

Once you've made the decision to create an on-line presence for yourself or your business and have a website built, you'll need a place to store the collection of files that make a website function and a way to make those files accessible to other people connected to the internet. A web server, through web hosting, provides these critical functions.

Whilst every website needs hosting, there are a number of ways that website hosting can be done. The type of hosting you need will depend on your websites size and complexity, as well as the resources and technical expertise you have at your disposal.

Shared Website Hosting

Shared hosting is the hosting of multiple websites on the same web server. With shared hosting, a web hosting company allocates the user storage space and makes the website's files accessible to other users through the internet. The web host also maintains the server and provides technical support for it. For those who are not technically minded or have access to their own technical support staff, having a web host to manage this is a very good option.

One of the major advantages of shared hosting is that it costs much less than most other types of website hosting due to the efficient use of the servers resources. The web hosting company has the experience and resources to provide first class reliability and technical support for your website ensuring that your site is kept running at all times and serving quickly.

Shared hosting is perhaps most suited for individuals and small to medium sized business websites.
