What is Website Hosting?
Website Hosting is the process of safely storing a website and accurately serving its web pages to a targeted audience online. A website is hosted and stored on a special computer known as a server.
In order for your targeted audience to access your manufacturing website through the internet, it must be hosted on a server following its launch.
What is Website Hosting?
Driven Digital is a web hosting service provider that offers the technologies and services necessary for a website’s pages to be successfully viewed online.
There are an infinite number of hosting services available. However, these “big box” hosting sites often host hundreds of websites on just one individual server. As a result, it can cause a website to perform slowly, poorly or even crash completely.
Shared hosting negatively affects your online presence as a manufacturer, by:
- Blocking Site Access
- Lacking in Security
- Increasing Downtime
- Providing a Higher Risk of Data Loss
Your website is the face of your manufacturing company.
You simply cannot afford for it to not run smoothly day-to-day.
Website Hosting Must-Haves
Isolated Software Containers
Here at Driven Digital, each manufacturing website that we host is isolated.
Every website that we are hosting is currently being hosted on its own individual server. As a result, access is available to all of the resources that are necessary to efficiently run a site and each of its web pages. Hardware resources will, also, be automatically allocated.
Website security is vital to the success of your manufacturing website.
It is essential that your website safely secures your and your customer's essential data and information. Cloudflare DDoS Protection and SSL security will efficiently secure the data that is accumulated through your web pages. It is critical that your site is hosted on a server that offers quality assurance in a hack-free website hosting environment. If your site does get hacked, having a website security plan can be a lifesaver - making certain that your web pages continue to effectively run.
24/7 Uptime Monitoring
Driven Digital will provide your manufacturing website with 24/7 uptime monitoring.
A website’s uptime is known as the average period of time that a website remains accessible online. The average uptime is crucial to how much traffic your web pages receive. A website that is not accessible online, for even the smallest period of time, will miss opportunities to generate quality leads and gain potential buyers.
Driven Digital provides the resources that are necessary to provide a 99.9% uptime guarantee, continuously monitoring all web pages.
Daily Site Backups
A daily website backup is a process of analyzing your site and generating a duplicate version of your web pages. Thus, producing an exact copy of your manufacturing website.
You put a lot of effort into your manufacturing presence online. A daily, automatic backup will make sure that your website continues to operate smoothly and efficiently. If something unfortunate were to occur, a daily backup will ensure that you have full access to the most recent progress done on your web pages. For instance, misplacing your manufacturing content or even losing track of essential lead data that is generated from form submissions. Driven Digital will backup your web pages automatically and on a daily basis. This will make certain that your site can be quickly and simply restored if needed.
