Dear Business Owner,
I get the desire at times to just set it and forget it. You have already exerted a lot of effort in getting the website developed, and the easy option is to go with whatever the developer recommended for webhosting. Pay the bill as it comes in and focus on everything else. That works … until it doesn’t.
What would happen to your business if you could no longer send emails, you can no longer take payments or bookings on your website, or your website is hacked, and your customers are sent fraudulent invoices. How will that impact your reputation? Your relationship with your customers? If you owned a store, you would insure against that – have you done that for your website?
The move to online presents exciting new opportunities, but also a whole new world of risks. You do not just need a web hosting provider. You need someone to reduce your risk, and keep you informed on website performance.
So ask yourself … why do you keep spending your hard-earned dollars on a no-action, standard website hosting provider, that only promises speed and bandwidth, but takes no steps to keep your website up-to-date and secure?
We are here to help.
We have partnered with leading web developers and marketing professionals on the Sunshine Coast. We asked them what they needed in a website host to support their marketing campaigns. They asked for the following:
- Fast, secure, webhosting, that adapts to changes in webtraffic
- Google webmaster tools built in and set up for easy review and reporting
- WordPress and WordPress plugins updated regulary
- Regular back-ups of website
- Secure hosting, with smart anti-hack and anti-spam technology
- Professional, responsive websupport. Emails responded to within 24hrs.
- No surprises. Any downtime quickly reported and fixed.

Our servers are local, fast and secure.
We use Cloudways High-Frequency Vultr. Cloudways provides exceptional customer service, so our developers get the help they need, as they need it. The platform offers an innovative control panel, managed security, 24/7 real-time monitoring, automated back-ups and scalability of resources. So, we can adjust your website’s bandwidth to meet growing demand. The High-Frequency Vultr servers promise 20-50% improved performance and stability over standard servers, ensuring faster load times. To learn more of the differences, check out this article here.
Why does this matter? Load times are one of the most important factors in your website’s ranking on search and overall user experience.
We keep your networks secure, fast, and reliable
We use Cloudflare. Cloudflare offers DDoS protection and traffic acceleration for all your network infrastructure. This is important for managing your emails and how your website connects to your domain host (i.e. DNS).
Why does this matter? Makes it easier to securly manage what has access to your domain to prevent cyber attacks and fraud.
We keep your WordPress site up-to-date
We use ManageWP. Your website is built using a variety of applications. Just like your smartphone, they are regularly being updated to keep up with new technologies and risks. Every one of our packages includes monthly updates of WordPress and all your plugins. We check to make sure the updates do not effect the performance of your website or create unexpected crashes. Manage WP also supports regular backups and easy recovery. So, if you accidentally break your website during an update (it’s ok, it happens to the best of us), we can quickly restore it.
Why does this matter? The older your website, the higher the risk of a successful cyber attack. User experience is improved with a faster, more stable website.
We provide 24/7 uptime monitoring.
We use Better Uptime. One of the fastest uptime monitoring platforms available. If your website goes down, for any reason, even for a few seconds, we will know as soon as it happens. The platform provides easy debugging tools and reports so our developers can more efficiently identify and fix any issue with your website.
Why does this matter? If your website is prone to downtime, Google and Facebook will penalise you with higher charges for your ad spend.
We keep your website safe and secure
Our developers use a host of tactics to reduce the threat of cyber risk to your website. The tactics include creating an unique login page for your website; captcha for webforms; and a variety of plugins designed to protect your website, PLUS all our websites are SSL certified (at no additional charge).
We also have full cyber insurance for all the websites we host.
Bonus – Google SiteKit set up for FREE
We install and set up Google Site Kit for all our clients. Google’s official WordPress plugin. When you login to your website, you will get insights about how people find and use your site, how to improve website performance. Google SiteKit connects your Google Analytics, Google Search Console, Google PageSpeed, Google AdSense and Google Optimise, into one easy to use dashboard. We will connect all your Google webmaster services. We will even provide basic Google Analytics customisations, to track website performance, beyond just traffic. We will set up your first website goal.
