web hosting

If you own an e-commerce site, you are already aware that these websites are a little bit different to normal websites and come with their own set of needs. If your website keeps crashing or customers are finding it difficult to place an order, then you will need to rethink your e-commerce web hosting and reach out to edirect.

Why you need specialised E Commerce hosting

e-commerce sites have their unique needs due to the influx of traffic being significantly higher than other websites. These sites send more requests to the server, some of which are not appropriately equipped to deal with the sheer volume, which can cause major issues such as site downtime.

Site speed is very important for user experience and the success of a brand’s online presence. If your website is slow to load, this will only drive visitors away to your competitors. No one likes to wait around – especially if you want to buy something online quickly.

Over the last few years, there has been a steep rise in mobile usage for accessing the internet. To cope with the mobile demands, e-commerce websites have to be placed onto fast servers to satisfy all visitors.

Subsequently, with the rise in visitors to e-commerce sites, hosting has to adapt to this market trend. Higher security levels are standard to protect the website and its visitors from malevolent forces. The hosting requirements for these websites have to be customised in order to cope with the visitors, site demands and many more factors.

edirect hosts numerous e-commerce websites, so we will know exactly what to consider when picking your new platform. We will take the time to get to know your company and your products for a fully bespoke hosting solution.

While there are many providers advertising hosting services with numerous additional features, many of these will not actually be useful or relevant to every business. Every brand requires a platform that will match the company’s specific needs and business objectives.

a professional business needs a professional website

At edirect, we are forward-thinking individuals and we bring this approach to our web hosting solutions. It is important to not only consider the current demand but also the future growth of the brand within the coming years.

Having an e-commerce store is a necessity in our digital age. Consumers are likely to look up several products for comparison before finalising their online purchase. This makes the method in which customers come into contact with your products the key aspect in achieving and sustaining success.

Investing in external e-commerce website hosting will be a smart long-term decision for your brand. The costs of constantly upgrading your own server hardware, software and high-speed internet connectivity can easily stack up as customer demand for your products increases. The website has to be running fast at all times.

Our technologically advanced world is ever-changing and keeping up with the latest developments takes knowledge and skills. You and your team members will not have to worry about that when enlisting the expertise of edirect for your website hosting. We will ensure that your e-commerce website runs optimally at all times across all available platforms.
