We offer web hosting services for all types of WordPress websites. Web hosting is a necessity for any website. It is the physical location of the text, images, and files that comprise the pages of your website, making it accessible for people to view via the internet. Web hosting providers will maintain the servers and equipment where your data is stored as well as manage the technology making it possible for your website to be viewed 24 hours a day, 365 days a year on the internet. The quality of your web hosting can have a major impact on the load time of your website – a major SEO ranking factor used by Google and other search engines. Beware of cheap hosting deals, with website hosting you get what you pay for!
We can host any WordPress website. If we have built your website we will automatically be hosted by us. If your website was built by another developer we can assist with migrating across from your previous provider.
We offer 3 types of web hosting dependant on the size and complexity of your website. Our standard hosting is perfect for small ‘brochure’ websites and sites that don’t exceed 10 pages. Our premium hosting service is super fast, with no page view limits and automatic plugin and WordPress updates. This is ideal for more complex sites and e-commerce websites. For larger organizations with very high traffic websites, we can offer a full range of dedicated environments based on your needs. To summarise, whatever type of business you have, our WordPress website hosting services will ensure your website is available, secure and running smoothly for your visitors.
**All hosting plans are billed annually in advance. VAT will be added at the current rate.

Although closely related to each other, a lot of people mistakenly identify domain names and hosting as being one and the same thing. Both are required in order to make websites possible. A domain name is what people type into the address bar in their internet browser to view your website. Whereas a hosting service is a place where your website is stored. The domain name acts as an address for the website much the same as a house would have an address that it can be located by.
An SSL certificate is a way of ensuring a secure and safe connection between the user’s web browser and the server. It provides a way of encrypting every item of data that is sent to and from the server. For example, when someone purchases something on the internet using their credit or debit card, all of their bank details will be securely transmitted. Stopping any malicious attempts to acquire them. If a website has a valid SSL certificate this can usually be identified by a small padlock icon preceding the web address. It will also display ‘https://’ as opposed to ‘http://’.
Although web hosting doesn’t have a direct impact on search engine rankings, the speed of your website does! Google and other search engines place value on websites that are fast. More importantly, if your website does not load quickly it provides a bad user experience for your customers. This increases the chances of people navigating away from your website, having a detrimental effect on how Google sees and ranks it. Our premium hosting is perfect for users who care about SEO for their website. It provides a super fast and stable platform for your website to run.
We appreciate that if your website goes down, it can have a negative impact on your business. This is why we want to keep your website up and running 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We will work closely with our hosting providers to solve any issues that may arise. We will not charge for the time it takes to resolve any web hosting related problems. However, our usual charges apply to any technical support or troubleshooting regarding any other website issues.
The level of hosting service you opt for will impact the speed of your website. All of the websites we build here at FreshOnline are optimized for speed and dependant on how complex or big your site is we will always recommend the hosting service that we believe to be suitable for your website. Our standard hosting is great for smaller websites that have no more than 10 pages. Our premium hosting is more than capable for most other site needs, such as e-commerce and complex sites. We would only ever recommend our dedicated hosting to users with extremely high traffic websites or larger organisations that would benefit from having a dedicated environment.
All of our web hosting packages are billed annually in advance. You will receive an invoice at the start of your hosting period, which we ask you to settle within 7 days. All prices are subject to VAT at the standard rate.
If we have not been fortunate enough to build your website for you, we can still host it! We offer hosting for any WordPress website be it big or small. We can help you to migrate your website over from your previous provider
