Website hosting services

Digital

Hosting is something you don’t truly realise the importance of until something goes wrong. Reading this, you might not even know who hosts your site. To us, that sounds pretty risky. If your website is your main source of leads, sales, enquiries and information for your customers, you need whoever is hosting it to treat it with care.

Managed website hosting

We offer ‘managed’ hosting which means we don’t just offer space on a server; we also maintain the websites, making sure they’re fully updated on the latest versions with updated plugins to ensure the website is as secure as possible. Our managed website hosting packages offer peace of mind.

There are many different types of hosting available depending on the technologies on which the website is built. We offer hosting for WordPress and PHP based websites as well as dedicated servers if required.

Who we work with

What should I look for in a managed hosting provider?

As a general rule, the cheaper the hosting, the more likely it is that the servers will be slow, go down more often, have smaller server space and could be more prone for being hacked. Less reliable providers may also take longer to respond to and fix any issues.

With websites so critical to so many different types of businesses, it’s crucial that any problems with the site or hosting are resolved very quickly, which is why managed hosting is a great solution.

The main things to consider when choosing a hosting provider are speed, reliability, uptime, security and that the hosting package has enough resource (databases, hard drive space, RAM, etc)  for the current time and for potential growth.

Senior Digital Marketing Manager Zen Internet
We wanted a complete web refresh with additional functionality with a planned live date within 6 weeks. I had just started working with Dawn (have worked with multiple agencies) and was sceptical at to whether they'd hit the deadline but they absolutely did. Was very impressed with the service, speed and delivery. Great job!

Don't just take our word for it

Brand, Digital
& Motion

We believe every brand is a sleeping giant just waiting to be awoken. To rise up and show the world what it's made of. It's our job to chip away at the stone and realise its potential.

You need a website that does it all. That inspires and informs, builds confidence and trust. That enhances experiences and turns casual browsers into lifetime customers.

How your brand moves says things words can’t. Every movement either raises hairs or raises eyebrows. Delights or deters. It's important to make every movement count.
