8 Reasons You Need to Host Your Website with Seven Ages Design

In Generalby Seven Ages Design

Choosing a good host for your company’s website is a decision that shouldn’t be taken lightly. The impact a good hosting provider can have on your business is much larger than you may think.

Premium website hosting services, like those offered to clients of Seven Ages Design, can ensure your website will perform optimally, keep your customers engaged, and, in the end, drive higher conversions.

Meanwhile, hosting your website with a poor provider can slow down your load times and make your website’s UX a nightmare.

If you’re still on the fence about whether or not premium website hosting services are worth the investment, keep reading as we make a compelling case.

1.) Your Website Will Be Fast

When it comes to convincing a new visitor that your website is worth browsing, there is a very small window of opportunity.
One second - that’s all the time you have.
We at Seven Ages Design understand better than anyone how important a website’s load times and performance are to guaranteeing its success.
Our holistic view of website speed and performance has allowed us to provide our clients with a hosting platform that consistently boosts their website’s performance.

Our dedication to image compression software, dedicated hosting servers, and CDNs combine to produce the number one reason clients looking to host eCommerce stores, blogs, and business websites choose Seven Ages Design to host their website: they know it will be fast.

2.) You'll Have Access to Timely and Comprehensive Support

When things go wrong, we know you just want to speak with someone who knows why the problem is happening, how to fix it, and how to keep it from happening again.
That’s where we come in.
Shortly after being alerted to a problem, you’ll be treated to our white-glove customer service as our support team troubleshoots the issue and doesn’t stop until it’s been resolved.

3.) Your Website Will Be Automatically Outfitted with an SSL Certificate

In today’s digital landscape, there are few other features that are more integral to building your website’s reputation as one that is secure and trustworthy than an SSL Certificate.

By hosting with us, you’ll have the hassle of setup and configuration taken out of your hands as we automatically fit your website with its own SSL Certificate.
Short for Secure-Sockets-Layer Certificate, this designation signals to your website’s visitors that all communication between their devices and your website will be encrypted and safe from prying eyes.

Websites with SSL certificates also tend to load 80% faster than websites without one, meaning that having one will boost your website’s performance.

This increase in performance and security also serves to boost your website’s SEO, as Google has stated that they give ranking preference to secure, HTTPS websites over their unsecured counterparts.

4.) Your Website Will Be Backed Up Frequently

Regularly conducting backups is a necessary practice to guarantee that your website is always running smoothly.

Backing up your website means that you’ll always have access to sensitive data in the unlikely event that a server crash occurs.
Furthermore, they ensure your business operations will only be temporarily affected by any possible human error.
Though our security measures guard against hacking, if your website were to theoretically be hacked, regular backups also give you access to a previous, unhacked or changed version of your website.
While the benefits are countless, they can be summarised under a single, umbrella phrase: regularly backing up your website gives you the unparalleled peace of mind that no problem is capable of permanently affecting your business.
That’s why we at Seven Ages Design conduct regular, automatic backups for the websites we host.
We’ve made it so that downloading or restoring previous versions of your website is as simple as clicking a button!

5.) Your WordPress Website and its Plugins Will Be Up to Date

If done improperly, installing updates for WordPress and its plugins can be a time-consuming process with the potential to reduce your website’s performance and negatively impact your customer’s experience.

While this might be the case for some, it’s certainly not for those who host with Seven Ages Design.

Wordpress is our bread and butter, so we know the exact steps to proactively handle issues users might incur when performing updates on the platform.

When you host your WordPress website with us, we will automatically install updates while simultaneously updating plugins and testing their configurations. That way you can spend your time doing what you do best: growing your business.

6.) Your Website Will Be Easily Accessible

Whether you’re a one-person startup or a household brand, you want people to be able to quickly access your website regardless of location.

This pursuit to make our client’s websites searchable and engaged with by the global community is why we at Seven Ages Design make use of Content Delivery Networks (CDNs).

CDNs act as storage locations for static components of your website in order to reduce its load time. This means that a European visitor to a US website won’t have to wait longer for the website’s content to load since parts of it would be stored on a server local to them.
In this way, choosing to host your website with Seven Ages Design is choosing to expand your global reach.

7.) Your Website Will Be Able to Handle Large Amounts of Traffic

Growth is the goal of most businesses - you want to grow your customer base, their interest levels and, ultimately, your sales.
Why, then, do so many hosting providers seem to punish their customers by charging overage and pageview count fees?
We don’t know, that’s why we won’t do it.
Thanks to our agile and scalable hosting platform, we encourage our customers to grow their website’s traffic to whatever size and frequency best fits their business goals.
Deciding whether or not to invest in premium website hosting is not a decision that should be brushed aside: quality website hosting gives you the power to present your website’s content safely, quickly, and effectively to your customers.
Put another way, it can be the reason your customers stay engaged with your website’s content to the very end, or it can be why they never come back.

If you’re looking to host your website with a company that enables you to consistently deliver an unforgettable website to your customers, let’s get in touch.
