Why its time to move away from shared hosting and move up to the cloud?

Post by Joe

There are many reasons why you should move to the cloud if you haven’t done so already, most importantly, it will enhance your page load time with blazing fast speeds improving user experience.

We have raised many issues with cheap, shared hosting, and believe its time to move up to Google’s cloud servers.

What is shared hosting?

Shared hosting is where a single server hosts multiple sites. It’s a cost-effective way to get a site online.

Issues clients are facing with shared hosting

Low availability (uptime)

It is very unreliable because of low availability (uptime). If one website gets a lot of traffic, other websites on the server suffer due to the excessive and highly unfair allocation of server resources. We have wasted many hours fixing website issues due to a shared hosting provider.

Slow Website Speeds

Slow website speeds can cause high bounce rates and lose those vital conversions.

Lack of Security

Shared hosting servers have weak security because of delays in patching and updates.

Higher Risk of Data Loss

The server admins can accidentally overwrite a website’s backup during the upgrading of a client’s website or adding a patch. They are difficult to automate in a shared hosting environment. If this goes unnoticed, and data has been lost, there is no backup to restore the website.


How can we resolve these issues?

Having never set a website up before I needed some support and contacted Joe. I was very pleased with how easy the whole process was working with Joe. We now have a great looking interactive website that is very user-friendly. Nothing was a problem for Joe and he was always happy to make any changes that we required. Great service and now a great website.

Gareth Powell, Contar Resins.

Joe re-vamped our old website and produced a much more modern and easy-to-navigate version. He listened to our requirements and tailored the new website to meet them. Many thanks also to Joe’s colleague, Emma Wardall, who advised us on the new GDPR regulations and produced various forms for us accordingly. Joe is clearly committed to his customers and we feel confident that he will provide us with an excellent ongoing support service. Many thanks Joe.

Joe built our website from scratch for a new business we started. He listened to our ideas and made our scrapbook sketches into a professional and unique website. Nothing was to much trouble, his attention to detail and creative ideas is what made him stand out from the rest.

Total Protection is very pleased with the website produced by Joe. We were looking for a fresh and modernised version of our previous website and he has done a fantastic job with achieving this. I have already received positive feedback from some of our clients regarding the new look. I would recommend Joe to any company looking for assistance with a new or improved website.

Emma Thompson, Total Protection

The entire experience working with Joe has been excellent. Joe is talented, creative, responsive and incredibly organised. He transformed our website into exactly what we needed and did it on time and on budget. We are looking forward to continuing to work with Joe in the future as part of our creative team.
