Aside from investing in the most advanced hosting technologies and providing the full range of hosting services, from shared hosting to managed cloud solutions, Webhosting UK (WHUK) also offers a range of specialised hosting services and tools carefully curated to meet the needs of individual customers. If you are not acquainted with these, this post will explain what they are.
Specialised CMS hosting plans
CMS software is the most popular for creating websites, with WordPress, in particular, dominating the market. Because 42% of the world’s websites are built with WordPress, a lot of web hosts have begun to offer dedicated WordPress hosting. At WHUK, we’ve been offering this for years. What makes us different, however, is that we also cater for other types of popular CMS by offering dedicated hosting for Magento, Drupal and Joomla platforms.
Just like with our WordPress hosting, these also use servers that are optimised to boost the security and performance of each CMS type and come with 24/7 support from platform experts.
Influencer hosting plans
Social media influencers and content creators often need a central online hub where they can unite all their followers from across the different channels. Not only does this bring security, in case a channel fails, like Vine did, or changes its content policy; it also brings new opportunities to sell merchandise, make money from advertising and affiliate commission and carry out cross-channel promotions. To help our growing number of influencer customers, we have now launched our Content Creator hosting plans.
Web development is a growing industry with many developers looking at ways to expand the range of services they offer their clients. At the same time, there are a lot of entrepreneurs trying to find a way to get into the web hosting business. Our white label Linux and Windows reseller hosting solutions are designed to help both kinds of client by letting you resell our hosting under your own brand name to create your own hosting business. Not only do we provide you with the infrastructure needed to host your own clients’ websites; we also include state of the art tools, like cPanel/WHM or Plesk, so you can create your own plans and pricing structure and manage your clients’ accounts. And with a cPanel or Plesk control panel, your clients will be able to manage their own websites and hosting as well.
Patchman Website Security
When you’re busy working on your business, it can be easy to take your eye off your website security. However, with the number of threats and attacks increasing, security has to remain a priority. Two important aspects of keeping your website secure are to patch outdated software to stop it from being vulnerable to attack and to monitor your site for malware, such as ransomware, viruses and trojans.
For those with popular CMS websites like WordPress, WHUK now offers the Patchman Website Security tool which looks after both these areas of weakness. It monitors your website for you and if it finds a vulnerability or malware it will notify you immediately. The Patchman dashboard enables you to deal with these issues manually, but, crucially, if you don’t manage to do so within a given time frame, it automates the process and handles the problem automatically for you.
Email security certificates
Phishing has become an increasingly bigger risk for businesses with both customers and employees being targeted by fake emails. With some fake messages being so hard to spot, many victims have been conned into giving away their login credentials, paying for goods they never receive or having their bank accounts emptied. Some scammers impersonating bosses have even defrauded businesses by getting finance employees to pay fake invoices.
The chief reason these scams are effective is that recipients are unable to tell whether the emails they receive are genuine or fake. WHUK’s email security certificates provide protection from this by verifying the identity of the sender. What’s more, they go even further and encrypt the content of emails and attachments so that they cannot be intercepted or tampered with.
marketgoo all-in-one SEO tool
As a web host provider, one thing we’re certain of is that all our customers would like to see their websites rank higher in search engine results and get more visitors. While we do our bit by providing super-fast servers, secure hosting and SSL certificates, one of the main tasks for website owners is to work on their SEO. SEO, however, is an ongoing task, often a burden for smaller businesses and sometimes technically challenging.
To help, we have now teamed up with marketgoo to offer the marketgoo SEO Tool. In reality, it’s a whole suite of advanced tools designed to simplify and streamline the SEO process. marketgoo analyses your website to provide you with a prioritised checklist of SEO improvements and then gives you the tools to implement them. It issues regular reports on your progress too, and covers a wide range of SEO tasks, including keyword optimisation, competitor analysis, mobile-friendliness, site speed, search engine indexing, content analysis and more.
At WHUK, we’re determined to provide web hosting services that suit every customer’s need. As you can see, aside from our standard range of hosting solutions and expert 24/7 technical support, we also deliver specialised services to suit niche needs as well as tools to improve all areas of hosting.
