Hosting, security and maintenance

Any website looking to draw meaningful web traffic should be kept up to date, secure, and running with reliable hosting and maintenance. Your website is like a virtual shop window and is there to sell the benefits of your products and services to your customers.

If your website goes down, is outdated and slow, or has clear security concerns, potential customers are far less likely to trust your business and purchase your products. Our hosting, security, and maintenance plans are reliable and help ensure your website is always running smoothly and updated with plugin and platform updates.

Web hosting at EDGE Creative

Web hosting provides a designated space on an online server to store your website which helps it to run efficiently. While every website you’ll see online is hosted on a server somewhere, different servers or locations provide different levels of reliability. If your server has an outage, your website will not be accessible!

When choosing where or how to host your website, reliability should be your top priority. Consider whether your server offers enough space for fluctuations in demand on your website and if it is fast to load to keep your users engaged.

Security and Maintenance Packages

Your website is a crucial part of your business and therefore requires extra care to make sure it continues to perform its functions and is safe from hackers. As a result, your website needs to be actively maintained – this why we have developed our cost-effective monthly website care plan.

On our care plan, your website will be monitored daily to ensure all code, plugins, and WordPress updates are updated quickly to minimise any risk. The benefits of our plans include:

  • Peace of mind that all software is up to date
  • Security against any cyberattacks with an encrypted connection
  • PHP/WordPress version updates
  • A quick restore functionality should anything go wrong
  • Assistance with content management
  • Continual performance improvements
  • Weekly backups with restore points before every update.


As technology evolves, website software is constantly being updated to make it more secure, faster and improve features. That’s why we’ll recommend our Web Care Plan to ensure your website is constantly ahead of the game when it comes to security updates, patches and performance.

    STEP 2: Setting up your hosting

    Next, we’ll run through the steps necessary to ensure a smooth transition to our server with the least downtime possible. We will keep you updated every step of the way, ensuring that your business can continue to operate effectively. If you’re setting up a new website with us, then the dedicated hosting service will be set up prior to the creation and publication of your website.

    STEP 3: Initial updates

    For an existing website moving to our web care plan, the first thing we’ll do is push live any missing updates to ensure that it is up to speed. We will perform an in-depth audit on your website and its performance, looking at functionalities and load times, and will install any plugin and CMS updates your website may have been missing.

    STEP 4: Regular patches, updates and reviews

    Once the initial updates are complete, we’ll monitor your website’s software daily to ensure any updates to your code, plugins and WordPress/PHP versions are implemented as swiftly as possible. This helps to reduce the risk of issues caused by old software and minimise load speeds. We will also help manage the content on your website and continually update other pieces of key software that aren’t directly linked to website functionality, consistently reviewing the changes we make to improve and adapt according to your needs.
