Everything on the web needs hosting. This is where the files, folders and database(s) that make your website are physically stored. Beacon13 provides enterprise level hosting and support for businesses all over the world.
Websites & E-commerce
We can host your website or app anywhere in the World. typically we’d host our apps in the UK or Ireland. But sometimes (often to be closer to the user base) we host our apps in the US, Eastern Europe or Asia. Hosting packages start at £195/year (Ex. VAT)
Website and e-commerce security is always a moving target. Beacon13 stays on top of this for you. Reacting to new threats with security updates and plugins. We’ll also keep you ahead of the game by changing endpoints, logins and passwords as and when needed. Worst case when a problem arises, you need someone to react quickly, shutting down weaknesses and restoring backups – that’s us!
Yep, that little padlock on your phone or browser is pretty important. An SSL cert adds encryption to your website and it improves speed and performance. Oh, and Google loves it! You can add an SSL certificate for £99/year. (+ VAT)
SQL Database hosting
Most websites, apps and e-commerce stores will need a database of some description. We create, configure, support and optimise MySQL and SQL Server databases for websites, e-commerce stores, WordPress, Woo-commerce, NopCommerce, Magento and more.
Super fast, super secure manged WordPress hosting. With hands on support, free migrations, daily backups and more. Our WordPress hosting packages start at around £199/year (ex. VAT)
Backups and security
Typically all of our websites, apps, e-commerce stores and databases are backed-up daily. Shit happens unfortunately (hacks, broken updates, dated plugins, browser changes) and having a recent backup that can be easily restored is essential.
Website speed and performance is absolutely critical. So much so, Google and Bing will punish you if your e-commerce store or app is slow. Our hosting clusters are fast by default, but even if an app starts to get heavy (with multiple users or thousands of products) we can easily scale up your plan to suit.
Often a business will need a more dedicated, serious hosting solution. This might take the form of a Linux or Windows VM. Beacon13 can create, configure and support Virtual Machines for your business.
