When edirect host your website, you will also benefit from unlimited emails. This means you won’t have to periodically delete emails to save space, which is handy if you need to store past emails for reference purposes.

It also means that you can email as many customers as you require. We also provide round-the-clock email support to help you with any issues that you may experience.

e-commerce website hosting

If you own an e-commerce site, you will find that these are a little 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.

These sites have their own unique needs due to the influx of traffic being significantly higher than with other websites, resulting in more requests being sent to the server. In some cases, these servers are not equipped to deal with these requests and it can cause major issues such as site downtime.

Site speed is important for user experience and the success of a business’ online presence because no one likes to wait, especially if they are wanting to buy something online quickly. If your site is slow to load, visitors will be tempted to turn to your competitors.

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

With the rise in visitors to e-Commerce sites, hosting has to adapt and higher security levels are standard to protect the website and its visitors from malevolent forces. The hosting needs for these sites have to be customised to cope with the visitors, site demands, and many other factors.

By choosing edirect to host your e-Commerce site, you will get a fully customised hosting package for your website, using high speed and reliable servers that can host shops built in PrestaShop, Magento and Woo to name a few. Every website will be placed on a secure server with little to no downtime and SSL integration as standard.

SSL integration

An essential element of the modern web is ensuring that your website is protected securely, as hacking that is aimed towards stealing personal and confidential information is becoming far more frequent. If your website has an element of data transfer, the installation of an SSL certificate is recommended for this.

SSL certificates are small data files that, when installed on a web server, activate the padlock and the https protocol, allowing secure connections from a web server to a browser.

They are normally used in order to secure credit card transactions, personal details, data transfer, and logins. Here at edirect, we can offer a number of different SSL certificates based on the needs of your website and we can recommend the ideal solution for you.

Whether you need basic protection or a strong SSL certificate with high levels of insurance, we will provide the full registration and implementation on your behalf.

Dedicated server hosting

With any website design and development services, we provide you with the option of website hosting on your own dedicated server, allowing you to have full access to the server environment. This means that you will reap the benefits of very high levels of storage as well as ultra-fast site speed.

With dedicated server hosting, your site speed will become more consistent, as it is unaffected at busy periods by other sites hosted on the same server. This solution is more commonly applied to eCommerce sites and bespoke applications as these require a larger capacity and more specific hosting requirements.

Here at edirect, we deal with many different hosting environments and are able to ensure that your site is hosted appropriately, in response to the required environment. Also, our hosting service is not exclusive to our own web developments.

Optional website management service

If you need to focus on more important matters than running your site, then we offer an optional website management service you can benefit from. Our team will ensure that your website is kept up to date and take care of all the little things such as updates, so that your site converts business at the highest possible level.

Right now you may have the most up to date, effective and impressive website available, but the internet world moves incredibly fast and design, development and marketing techniques are improving on a monthly basis. If your business does not keep up with the trends, you can be sure your competitors will, giving them the potential to outshine your business. Companies that are signed up for website management services with edirect will be advised of potential website improvements, and we will also be able to provide the necessary improvements.

Additionally, most companies need to evolve over time, from offering new services or products, providing new information based on customer feedback, undergoing rebranding changes, updating your logo for a more modern look, to updating prices and packages to fit with the current market or moving location.

Every time your business makes a change, your website will also require a change and at edirect, we understand that many business owners may not have the time or the knowledge within their company to implement the necessary updates.

Whether you are looking to make just one change on an ad hoc basis, or you would like a monthly service to keep your website up to date at all times, we are happy to offer this service to existing and new customers alongside our website hosting services.
