Domain & Hosting.
At Digital Sprout we pride ourselves on only working with the best hosting providers in the industry for WordPress sites. We are currently partnered with WPEngine. You can find out more about our partnership with WPEngine by visiting the WPEngine Partnership page.
When you choose to work with us on your website, you can be assured that you are getting the best hosting available. We only work with hosting providers who specialize in Managed WordPress Hosting. What is Managed WordPress Hosting?
Take the guesswork and stress out of maintaining your website with managed WordPress hosting. From monitoring and security to server upgrades and troubleshooting, managing your own WordPress hosting means taking time and energy away from other important projects.
With our hosting, we will give you the freedom to create amazing digital experiences online, without worrying about your tech stack, server security, updates, or server-side optimizations. With our managed hosting services we take care of the technology so you can focus on what’s important to your business.
What Can You Expect From Our Hosting?
Blazing fast site speed
Don’t think site speed is important? Think again. If your pages take more than a few seconds to load, visitors will have already moved onto the next site on the list.
Why buy cheap, shared hosting packages with poor support and expect them to care about your site speed?
With manged hosting, you get the best servers, fully optimised and a massive boost in site speed as a result.
Combine this with our clean, efficient coding and your site will never lose visitors due to poor load times.
Over 150 million attacks blocked daily
You don’t need to worry about the technical side of hosting. Our engineers work on your site security while building out additional features to give you the tools, intelligence, and performance you need.
As part of your hosting, we keep your WordPress versions up to date to minimize the risk of your site being attacked.
Why is this so important? If your site is hacked your visitors may be served any number of alternate pages to the intended page on your site. This can include links to porn or lots of pop ups. Either way, your site visitors will not stick around for long if you have been hacked, thereby losing you potential customers.
Scale your site easily
Giving you the best-in-class, enterprise-grade scalable architecture, regardless of your size. Our proprietary front-end is built on thousands of carefully designed rules, all of which are continually audited and adjusted to maintain maximum performance.
Our hosting is geared up for ongoing development of sites and as your site will be using the WordPress platform, we are ideally placed to help you scale your site.
Perhaps you started off with a fairly basic site and want to add a blog or even upgrade to ecommerce and sell items through your site; at Digital Sprout we can ease the pressure on you and help you get this done with minimal disruption to your existing site.
Access 24/7/365 support
Award-winning support, which includes an average less-than-three minute response time for chat. We prepare you for success with technical onboarding and launch readiness assessments, guide you in solving your most challenging WordPress questions, and partner in resolving critical site issues that may arise.
Whilst most of our clients turn to us for support, our hosting partners really are best placed to answer support queries relating to any hosting related issues. Whilst we do not anticipate you having to utilize support very often, it provides enormous peace of mind that if your site was to go down, you have a good support network available to deal with such issues quickly and minimize disruption to your site.
Domain Name Assistance
Deciding on a domain name can take up quite a bit of time for any business. Whilst we can’t really help you to pick a name, where we can offer advice is on the domain name types and we can register domains for you.
Having Digital Sprout manage your domain names means you never need to worry about your domain expiring or missing the deadline and having to pay a big fee to retain the domain name. Once we have registered the domain on your behalf (it will be registered in your name) we will be the main admin source for reminders.
As such we will always advise you when your domain name renewal is coming up and we always register for a minimum period of 2 years.
With the internet opened up to more and more domain extensions to cope with the ever expanding number of websites; just how do you go about choosing the best domain extension?
Should you stick with .com or try one of the many other extensions out there like .team, .buzz, .scot?
When you engage Digital Sprout to build your website, we can offer advice on what extensions to use and which ones are best to avoid. Even nowadays, certain extensions are not valued as highly by google and can impact on your search engine rankings.
