E-commerce has completely revolutionised the retail industry and opened the door for a new wave of small businesses. Your choice of web hosting is essential for any website, but for e-commerce, it will have a direct impact on your ability to make money.
The introduction of the internet and the way it’s been implemented into the business world has been nothing short of amazing. In regards to the many tools granted to us by being ‘online’, e-commerce has certainly been one of the most revolutionary. If you’re a business with an e-commerce website, quality is everything, and since every site requires web hosting, it’s safe to say that you should choose wisely.
To help you make the best possible choice of web hosting for your site, we’ll take a closer look at the needs of e-commerce websites in regards to hosting.
High-Performance Web Hosting
As the digital age has evolved and the technology involved has advanced, people have become accustomed to a certain level of quality. When it comes to websites, everything needs to be top notch — especially if you want customers to spend money. This means that not only does your e-commerce site need to have a professional, user-friendly design, but it also needs to perform efficiently.
As modern technology has improved, consumers’ tolerance for slow-loading websites has withered. A slow site will frustrate your visitors and give them a good reason to purchase items somewhere else.
With Cyber Host Pro, you’ll have access to a range of the most advanced web hosting technology (such as VPS hosting and dedicated servers), which can be scaled to suit your needs and increase the performance of your website. So if you notice a considerable spike in your traffic, you can easily upgrade to keep your loading times up to speed. Your sales could depend on it.
A sense of reliability is something that’s vital in any business. With e-commerce, your customers are relying on you to provide them with a fully-functioning website that allows them to make quick purchases. To achieve this, you firstly need a high-performance website hosting service as we mentioned above, but also one that has the memory and bandwidth to keep your site online at all times — despite any sudden large influxes of traffic.
In this instance, a lesser web hosting service would buckle under the pressure and cause bouts of unexpected downtime. That prospect is terrible for any website owner, but when it comes to e-commerce, the losses of having a site offline could be huge.
The digital age has given birth to many magnificent and beneficial things, but unfortunately with the good always comes the bad. And in the realms of the internet, the bad comes in the form of spam, viruses, and other cyber-security issues. As a society that now relies so heavily on technology, cybercrime is no laughing matter and can cost businesses a lot of money.
To make sure your website is protected from viruses and email spam, your first line of defence should always be your web hosting service. If this is compromised, your data (including customer information) and other aspects such as design could all be vulnerable. A cyber attack will damage your reputation as well as make customers steer clear of your site in case they also get a virus.
Here at Cyber Host Pro, ALL of our web hosting services include anti-spam and antivirus software. This means that no matter what hosting plan you decide to go with, you can rest assured that you’ll always be protected.
Quick-Response Customer Support
At Cyber Host Pro, we pride ourselves on providing customers with the highest possible quality customer support. You could have the best web hosting services in the world, but that becomes obsolete without the necessary customer support to keep everything in check. If your site suddenly goes down and you can’t fix it yourself, then you need a professional who can get to work ASAP and get you back online.
It’s for this reason that we’ve taken the right steps to make sure that if any issues should occur with the hosting services we provide, then you have multiple ways of contacting us to fix the problem. This includes a live chat that’s operational 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. All you have to do is visit our site, send a message, and we’ll take it from there.
Is your current web hosting service satisfying your e-commerce site’s needs? Here at Cyber Host Pro, you’ll have access to the most advanced technology to give your customers a quick and efficient online experience, as well as valuable customer support to make sure you are taken care of in times of need.
