7 Reasons why to choose our managed web hosting platforms

Running an online business can feel like you’re constantly spinning plates. There are many day-to-day activities to complete, and it only takes one disruption to throw everything behind schedule. Choosing a managed web hosting solution is one less plate to spin.

Technical issues can be a massive cause of the disruption. When you don’t have access to help and support, it is hard to keep on schedule.

 


What is the difference between unmanaged and managed web hosting?

Website hosting involves running servers that hold all your files and settings. Most website hosting uses the same types of computer hardware. However, they can be configured in many different ways.

Some companies choose to manage their servers in-house and employ engineers to maintain their systems. This tends to be a very expensive approach and you’ll become reliant on the engineers being able to fix issues.

Managed hosting service is when you pay a 3rd party company to run a server, and effectively you are renting the server from them. They’ll be tasked daily with keeping the server running and giving you technical support. Usually, this support is over the phone, email and LiveChat.

Choosing a company with a good track record for support is critical.


Choosing Clook for your managed web hosting

Back in 2002, our founder Chris James identified an issue with being able to find reliable suppliers that you could trust. He vowed when creating Clook, that our constant support, reliability and trustworthiness would be second to no other.

“It’s fair to say that I have experienced the good, the bad and the ugly on the customer service spectrum.
I vowed to be different. To treat everyone as though they were my most important customer. Whether they were paying five pounds or several hundred pounds a month for their service.”
– Chris James MD

Infrastructure, technology and performance

Since day one, we have always controlled our servers. Technology has come in leaps and bounds over the last 20 years and we’ve grown in specification, knowledge and hardware.

We have a continual aim of providing fast, reliable and robust hosting server hardware. Our engineers have 24/7 access, and we closely monitor them 24/7/365.


Website page load time

Websites consist of files that contain code, and it is up to the hosting server and network to server these files to a browser when a user requests them. Nobody likes having to wait for things, and website page load speed is down to a matter of milliseconds.

A slow website can cause issues with a negative user experience, people leaving the site straight away and having a low performance on search engines.

We spend time making sure our servers are at their optimal best performance.


Our UK based datacenters

Our datacentre operators are a member of The Green Grid industry body and comply with the European Code of Conduct for Datacentre Operators’ best practice guidelines.
