Choosing A Reputable Hosting Company For Your Website

Here at Royal Wholesale, the most important aspect of our business is our website. Without it, we wouldn’t be able to present products to our customers, offer online shopping, or provide helpful and informative industry information. So when it comes to choosing a reputable and trustworthy hosting company for our website, we don’t mess around.

Since the first day we launched our website, it’s been hosted with GigeNET. GigeNET has been providing clients in various industries with website hosting services for over 20 years. They are truly experts in their field and provide a variety of solutions to meet the needs of clients both large and small. Royal’s website contains over 4,000 products and receives personal information for thousands of customers each day when they create accounts to shop with us. It’s crucial that our website data remains secure and safely backed up to protect our customers. We also have hundreds of visitors that come to our website each day expecting to be able to quickly browse our site and buy the items they need. Therefore, we need to host our website on a dedicated server with a company that can guarantee maximum uptime and fast network speeds. If your confectionery business has a website, we highly recommend looking into GigeNET for your hosting needs. But before you choose a hosting company, here are some things you should keep an eye out for. 

Customer Service

A hosting company, like most other businesses, is only as good as their customer service. We’re big on customer service here at Royal so it should come as no surprise that we look for exceptional customer service from our hosting company. GigeNET’s, server solutions are guaranteed customer-centric and their team is driven to provide the best solutions for their customers. 



Server Reliability, Uptime Scores, And Security

Your website is only good if it stays online and can be used by your customers and potential customers. When your website goes down, not only are you missing out on sales for your e-commerce store, but it will also negatively impact your search engine rankings. To ensure that your website remains up and running, you’ll want to look for a hosting company uptime scores above 99%. You’ll also want to make sure your hosting company is able to provide you with secure hosting solutions to protect your data and your customer’s data.

Site Backups

With the constant cyber security threats swirling around the internet, it’s critical to have your website’s data regularly backed up. GigeNET offers managed backups with daily email reporting that notifies their support team whether or not your previous backups ran successfully or not and they’ll even contact you if you need to purchase additional backup space to accommodate your data growth.
