Web Hosting

Reliable, scalable and powerful web hosting is very important for your website and with Arctic Webhosting you get as always a turn key solution that works without headache or worries for you.

Web Hosting during the first year is normally included in our web design packages so this package is mostly applicable for the second year and onwards.

Here are the main components for our web hosting package:

Domain Name

If you already have a domain name then that’s fine. We’ll transfer your domain name to our web hosting after your website is transferred to our web hosting platform. That way, we can test and make sure your website is working perfectly on our web host before we move to the new name servers (don’t worry if you don’t know what name servers is because we take care of it.

If you don’t have a domain name, that’s fine too. Together with you we will come up with a suitable domain name and register it for you. After the domain name is registered we’ll point the name servers from the domain registrar to our web host and as always, we take care of it.

Guaranteed Web Hosting

We guarantee that our web host has capacity and capability to cope with your website. You don’t have to worry if you have enough bandwidth or disk quota with us. We’ll upgrade your account so you have what you need to make your website run fast.

Some examples of capacity we expand:

  • Number of SQL databases
  • Disk quota
  • Bandwidth
  • Number of domains and subdomains
  • Number of e-mail addresses
  • And more…

But you don’t need to understand what all this means because we take care of it for you.

Free Website Transfer

We also transfer your existing website for free to our web host as part of any package you buy from us. We make a copy of your website and install it on our web host while your old web host is still serving your website. After we successfully copied and tested your website on our web host we point the name servers to our web host and your website is now moved successfully.

You don’t need to know what this means because we take care of everything. All you need to know is that your website is successfully moved to the ned web host without any downtime.

Mobile Detection Updates

New mobile phones keeps coming all the time and the software that detects and redirects mobile phones to the mobile friendly website needs to be constantly updated to reliably detect and redirect mobile phones.

Taking care of this is of course part of our hosting package so you can rest assured that new mobile phones as they are released are detected and redirected correctly.

Content Update Tool

All websites created by us also including mobile friendly websites are built on a content management system which is a software that dynamically build the web page every time a new visitor comes to visit. For us it’s complex to build and maintain but for you it’s great.

You get a user id and password you can login with and easily update and create new content for your website without knowing anything about html code or other programming languages. It’s almost like writing a Microsoft word document and press the publish button. Your website is now updated.

It’s perfect when you want to update your opening hours or change your special offer of the month. You can do this by yourself in a matter of minutes.

But as always, we are there for you if you need us through our web admin service.

Program Updates

The content management system we build your website on is great because it makes it easy for you to make important updates to your website but there’s also a downside… The system is quite complex and require regular updates to keep if working perfectly with new web browsers and new technology.

As part of the web hosting service we update all software to the latest stable version to keep it working perfectly as new browsers and new technology is introduced.

Program updates are also very important to keep your website updated to meet the latest requirements from Google and other search engines to make sure your website has the best possible position in the search result listings.

Security Updates

Same as for program updates, we keep your website updated with the latest security patches to keep hackers and other people with bad intentions at bay.

Backups

We take of course weekly on-site and off-site backups for your entire website so if you made any mistakes it’s possible to recover to your old version of the website.

Note: The web hosting package is normally only sold as part of our mobile friendly or traditional website design packages because we provide only turn key solutions. However, if you already have a website and allow us to transfer and maintain the website we are willing to discuss…
