Website server space
All websites require and use server space allocated to them via plan. Large sites such as ecommerce sites usually require more server space than a standard brochure site.
Over time, all websites grow in size as you add more content, receive form enquiries and orders etc. For a website to continue to function correctly it will need adequate space to store files, folders, database and have enough additional space to create the website backup file which will be saved off the server.
If your site is getting close to the server limit we will notify you and upgrade your site to the next available plan.
Keeping within your plan
It’s important that images are sized correctly and optimised before uploading to your website. This helps to keep file sizes small, stay within your web hosting plan and improve website page load times.
It’s important to keep your website operating system and plugins up to date. Operating system and extension updates improve your sites functionality and address known vulnerabilities that hackers have exploited. Your website is an investment for your business. In some cases it’s the only ‘store front’ a business may have. Therefore your website is much more than just a branding exercise. That’s why we maintain and look after your website on a regular basis.
I’ve found cheaper website hosting. Can I move my site away from you?
Yes you can. If you decide you want to move your site away to a cheaper web hosting platform you are welcome to do so. Your new provider will assist in moving your website for you.
Before you move, please reconsider! As mentioned above, we provide more than just web hosting. Through our managed website hosting service we provide you security and peace of mind, knowing that your website investment is well taken care of, and should something ever happen we have your back covered with free website restoration to a working backup. If you still decide to move your site away to another host, this responsibility will be yours. Please note:
- We cannot guarantee sites moved to other hosting platforms will continue to function correctly.
- Nor can we provide support for sites hosted on other platforms.
