WordPress Website Hosting
Fast, Reliable and Fully-Managed WordPress Web Hosting
A business website is only as strong as its web hosting provider. Without a website, business and commerce comes to a grinding halt.
Your company needs a hands-off web hosting plan to keep your customers and your website visitors happy – and sales coming in.
Since you’ve decided to create a new website and you know you want it built on WordPress, now you need to think about who will host it and where it will live.
Finding dependable web hosting is a vital step in building a successful website. How your site is hosted directly affects how information is delivered to your current and potential customers. Customers are looking for speed, secure browsing, a good experience – and a site that works 24/7.
As you begin to research WordPress secure web hosting options, you will discover there are countless web hosting services available that meet the WordPress minimum requirements for hosting. With all those choices, it may be difficult to narrow down which host is best for your business.
At AKEA Web Solutions, we believe our hosting services are an exceptional option. We offer benefits for companies beyond hosting and our available support can help you drive your business.
Added Protection – Security for Your Customers
Businesses need to protect their data and their customer’s data online from cyber-attacks and vulnerabilities. A standard approach to this is to use SSL, or Secure Sockets Layer, as a standard security protocol for establishing encrypted links between a web server and a browser. This means the data that transmits between the two is protected by the SSL. When you see HTTPS and/or a padlock icon in your address bar, you’ll know you are on a secure website with SSL configured.
Here’s how it works: information sent by a user on the Internet is passed from computer to computer to get to the destination server. If it is not encrypted with an SSL certificate, any computer in between that user and the server can potentially see private information such as credit card numbers, usernames and passwords and other sensitive information.
When you work with AKEA, we will configure SSL for your site and then monitor and maintain it. An essential step in securing your site.
2 Separate Hosting Environments – Live Website and Staging
With AKEA, you will have access to two hosting environments. One is a production environment, or where the live site sits – this is the website available to your website visitors. The production environment is separate from the Development or Staging environment.
The staging environment could be considered a sandbox where a duplicate of your live site is available for you to add new content to preview and test new potential features and functionality. This provides a true basis for quality assurance testing, allowing developers to clearly understand how updates will appear and function. Our technicians can help you as you navigate and experiment with improving your site.
