What Is “Security-Focused” Website Hosting?

Security-focused

The Internet has changed, and so has how the majority of us use it. According to Google there are 1,197,982,359 websites in the World as of January, 2021.

When the Internet was only made up of a few hundred thousand websites it was quite easy to get people to reach your website as you had a higher chance of being on that first page of the search engine page being used. As things grew, and when their were millions of websites around the world, search engines needed to become smarter. This led to Internet marketing and Search Engine Optimization (SEO) where individuals would learn the techniques that search engines use and then apply them to their websites to ensure that they “outranked” other websites.

Today, we have over 1 billion websites around the World, and the fact of the matter is that the people are getting to your website because they either already know it, or went looking specifically for it. Many Web Hosting companies still want to sell you “Website Marketing” services and super low-cost website hosting with unlimited everything.  Unfortunately, you aren’t using unlimited. In fact, you aren’t using even close to unlimited. A medium-sized eCommerce website might use around 8.5 GB of Transfer per month, given a 100 Kb page size and 1000 visits per month.

We let you drive traffic to your website in whatever way that you so choose, while we focus on keeping your website secure and available to your customers and clients. Our professional staff of Information Security professionals have over 15 years of experience in the Technology and Information Security industry, and following the guiding principles of Confidentiality, Integrity, and Availability (C.I.A.).

Finally, we make sure that the Availability of your website is their when you need it.

Your website is now an extension of your store front. How can we help?
