IT professionals consistently cite budget constraints as one of their biggest challenges. Add to this an uncertain U.S. and world economy and it’s suddenly even more important to make the most of your available financial resources. To ensure you are able to provide your company with the tech support necessary to keep your business websites highly efficient and running strong, you need to make smart, strategic monetary decisions.
Where to begin? It all starts with finding a reliable web host that will serve as the foundation of your company’s online initiatives. But don’t stop there. Think value. What if you could bundle additional resources with this web hosting option and get even more for your investment?
A cohesive web hosting package saves you time and money and offers the convenience of an easy-to-manage invoice from a single source. To make your work life easier, you’ll also want access to a knowledgeable customer support team that knows and understands each of the products within your bundled package. Here are some things you should consider pairing with your hosting service to make your IT budget go further.
Cloud hosting has become a common phrase in business circles and with good reason. Nearly 75 percent of tech chief financial officers say that cloud hosting and computing has the most measurable impact on their business. Superior to single, on-premise server sites that do not feature backup protocols, cloud-based web hosting offers a redundant, multiple-server configuration that means your business websites will remain securely backed up and running even if one of the servers malfunctions.
You and your team will have easy access to your websites in a fully scalable and customizable environment that can be accessed by your customers and team anytime, anywhere. Generous storage capabilities allow IT managers like you to conveniently store important data for their business, customers and employees in a configuration that can be customized to meet your organization’s specific needs.
With cybercrimes against businesses at an all-time high, providing a safe, secure environment for your website is critical. Malware – malicious software used by hackers to steal corporate and customer data – is a leading form of cyber attack that can result in website downtime and this threat has increased during the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis. Safeguarding your organization’s critical data has never been more important.
With a renewed emphasis on cyber security measures during the coronavirus pandemic, IT managers nationwide say they will continue to increase their data security investments. Compromised data leads to a lack of trust with your customers and lost revenue and inhibits your workforce’s ability to fulfill their responsibilities. A web hosting solution that features malware scanning, identification and removal can help you avoid and manage cyber attack threats.
Keeping the lines of communications safely open between your employees and your customers especially during these times when much of your team is probably working remotely is an important consideration. Having an email address for each team member improves customer, vendor and employee interactions and helps your organization maintain a professional and trustworthy image.
Access to unlimited email boxes ensures that you will have plenty of capacity for email data and storage. In addition, messages sent from your team will be clearly identified as from your organization which helps to build confidence with recipients who may be skeptical of email spam and scams. To make the most of your investment, look for an email solution that is reliable, scalable and can be bundled with your other services for cost efficiencies and convenience.
With online purchases greatly increasing during the coronavirus crisis and showing no signs of slowing, providing a positive eCommerce experience for your organization’s customers is paramount. SSL certificates can protect your customers’ personal information and data and help your organization project a safe and secure image for your online store that encourages website visitors to make a purchase.
Many online buyers look for the padlock logo in your company’s website browser that indicates your organization is credible to buy from. Ensuring a protected transaction environment for your customers not only makes them feel better, it’s also good for your organization. Be sure to include SSL certificates as part of your hosting solution to protect your company websites and help generate more revenue.
