Website hosting is what allows individuals and organization to make their website accessible on the world wide web. Web servers store the website’s data, process server-side code and deliver your content to your visitors. Hosting requirements vary widely based on website’s complexity, size and traffic. Over the last few years, website hosting has changed dramatically, with cloud hosting taking over from dedicated hosting. It’s easy to end up paying too much for your web hosting services, especially if you’ve signed up for a dedicated server, as these are far more expensive to run than a virtual server.
Why host your website with Cyber Fox?
AWS cloud hosting
At Cyber Fox we use cloud hosting supplied by Amazon Web Services (AWS) who are renowned for providing businesses, non-profit, and governmental organizations with a flexible, highly scalable, and low-cost ways to deliver their websites. Some examples of services hosted through AWS include Netflix, Nokia, Expedia and Lamborghini. As we use cloud based hosting, this means that we only pay for the resources that are used, when they are used, which allows us to pass on two advantages to our customers. The first advantage is scalability; when your website is busy, it is automatically able to access more resources, and thus when it is quiet, for example overnight, it uses less. The second advantage is because of the aforementioned scalability, we monitor each customer’s usage and will offer discounts for customers that continuously use less than what they’re paying for.
AWS also boasts the following:
- AWS is the fastest growing web hosting provider
- Flexible to traffic demands and adaptable to business needs
- Lower costs passed onto our clients
- Greater reliability and data protection
- Military-level security
Our hosting is great value
Our website hosting is not the cheapest, but it offers great value for money. Good hosting packages don’t just have to be reliable and trustworthy in keeping your site live 24/7, they need to be tailored to the particular needs of your business. Many cheaper hosting providers cram too many of their customer’s websites onto underpowered servers which leads to long loading times and your customer’s getting frustrated. Not only does this mean slow websites, but also insecure ones. Having lots of websites on one dedicated server can easily lead to SPAM blacklisting, which means emails from your website will be unreliable. If one website on shared server’s security is compromised, then every other website on the server will be affected.
Any website built by us and hosted with us will be speed optimised for free but we offer free server-side speed optimisation for every website we host. We believe slow websites are a massive hinderance for both your website’s users and it’s overall search engine performance, and therefore we have gone to great lengths to fully optimise both our website development process and our server environment to ensure minimum loading times!
