Before you even look at building your web site you need to make sure that you put down solid foundations for the future with a robust, reliable and secure hosting service.
The hardware and software of your hosting provider impacts directly on the performance of your web site and, believe it or not, your search engine rankings. If your web pages are being served up slowly then it will be much harder to gain good rankings.
At GTP we strictly control who is able to host with us with the majority of hosted web sites being ones that we have developed ourselves. This enables us to control what is happening on our servers and therefore maintain excellent reliability.
The key measure of a web servers quality and reliability is the amount of up time that the server delivers. Since we purchased our first server we have achieved over 99.9% uptime, meaning that our web servers have been on-line for 8752 hours out of 8760 hours each year.
(In fact our actual server performance is even better than this, but external incidents including accidental damage to optic fibre cables near the data centre have meant that our server was not reachable for short periods - this episode cost us about 4 hours of uptime).
We are very serious about building profitable web sites for our clients and so we leave the management of the hardware to the experts. We can then focus on what we do best - building successful web sites.
The fact that behind our web servers are experienced technical personnel who will pre-empt any problems, or solve them quickly should they arise, is a very important part of our service offering.
We are often gaining new clients from businesses who already have an existing web site and switch to us to build a better one. This commonly involves shifting their hosting from their current provider to GTP.
Fortunately we can make this a pain free experience by stepping you through a simple process so that you won't miss an email and the transfer of your hosting is very smooth.
If your current hosting contract is about to expire and you need to shift hosting fast, contact GTP and we can generally have your hosting switched over within the day. This includes re - setting up your email accounts on our server, and stepping you through your changes on outlook and outlook express.
If you have registered a new domain name and need hosting and email accounts immediately, we can also get these configured on the day and get your emails flying.
When you are ready to make the switch to GTP Web Hosting, the process is as simple as this:
Within a few hours, your new web hosting and email will be operational.
