Website services

WordPress runs over a quarter of the world’s websites for a good reason. WordPress is the #1 platform for small and medium sized businesses to showcase and sell their products and services.

Secure web hosting

We place your WordPress website on one of our Katapult high performance SSD Linux cloud servers in London. These servers run the latest versions of Ubuntu with nginx 1.18 and are regularly updated and continually monitored for availability, security and performance. We deploy LXD containers to ensure complete isolation of each website as a managed entity.

TLS/SSL certificates

We protect your data with TLS (SSL) certificates. We use Let’s Encrypt, a free, automated, and open Certificate Authority providing TLS certificates to 225 million websites. Unlike many other hosting companies we do not make an additional charge for this service.

Backup and recovery

Our servers are automatically backed up on a rotating basis. As an additional measure all site data, including configuration and media files, and databases are incrementally backed up to our cloud storage located in Switzerland. We regularly test physical recovery of all backup data for your peace of mind.

24/7 uptime monitoring

We monitor every website to check that each is running 24/7 and serving up pages correctly. Our monitoring toolkit includes the Uptime Kuma web service, a best-in-class monitoring service. We respond proactively to any problems identified, typically in advance of a client being aware of any issue.

Creative digital design

One of the many reasons to choose WordPress is the huge range of themes available to help design your website in the manner best suited for your business. Themes are customized and adapted to meet your personal needs. We recommend the built-in Twentytwentytwo theme, or the excellent Storefront, Chaplin or Customizr themes, all perfectly designed for every digital platform, whether mobile, tablet or desktop.

Email marketing

If you already use the email marketing platform, Mailchimp, we can connect your website forms to your subscriber lists. As an alternative we offer our own Mailing List service based on open-source Listmonk where we host and manage on your behalf your own dedicated and cost-effective unlimited white-label solution.

Sell online

Adding an online shop to your website is an obvious next step with WordPress. We work with Woocommerce, the most popular ecommerce platform on the web. It’s a simple matter to post up your services or products, whether shipped or downloadable, and to showcase your online shop with easy-to-use cart and checkout. We offer our Ecommerce service as an extension to your hosting, based on Woocommerce to get you started and give advice on the way.

Payment processing

Getting paid online is not the simplest thing to set up. We can advise, help and guide you to get started on the Stripe online payment platform as part of our Ecommerce service. We can also assist with international direct debit payments via GoCardless. We link your website to these payment processors enabling you to accept secure payments for your products or services with either PayPal, debit or credit cards, or even direct debits.

Membership and subscriptions

Manage your subscriptions and membership lists direct on your website. Offer access to restricted content and other member benefits. Automate membership renewals and sync membership lists with your email communications platform. Our Subscription service is an extension to your hosting plan.

Events and ticketing

Placing an event calendar on your website shows your audience just what you’re up to and invites them to attend and participate. We recommend the Event Calendar plugin that integrates perfectly with the rest of your site. Additionally with Event Tickets Plus your clients can purchase tickets to your events using the Woocommerce shopping cart and payment processing options described here. Our Bookings service is an extension to your hosting plan.

Website pricing

Our pricing is by monthly subscription. We charge for website hosting plus maintenance and support. Extensions require subscribing also to the base service, unless this has been subscribed to previously. Add-ons can be purchased as additional subscription items and multiplied as needed.
