Boost Your Online Presence

Nowadays its more important than ever for businesses to have an on-line presence, particularly since Covid restrictions hit the UK. People are so used to going on-line to look up everything and we expect to be persuaded through appealing images even if you aren’t technically selling on-line. Whether we are looking for a place to have coffee and cake, have a haircut, go to theatre or just buy something for our homes, nowadays we usually make decisions about where to go before we even step out of the front door.  

Eco Friendly Initiatives

We’re always looking for new initiatives to contribute to the environment beyond simply negating our business footprint! The following are just two of our initiatives:

  • We sponsor Tree Sisters! So or every month you subscribe to either a hosting or maintenance package, we will pay for a tree to be planted!
  • All of our hosting is powered by 100% renewable energy. We’re proud that our hosting comes from sources like the sun, wind and sea.

Stress Free Migrations

We will take care of the whole website migration ensuring that there is no downtime for your website or emails. Please note, we sometimes have to charge for migrations because some hosting companies, for example Go Daddy, deliberately make migrating away very difficult and time consuming. We play nicely by the way! Should you decide to move away we will be happy to liaise with your chosen hosting provider to support a smooth handover. We strongly suggest that you check the package carefullas they often dont guarantee up-time, donundertake regular security patching or can be difficult to work with when issues arise! 

Lightning Fast Speeds

First of all we understand how important speed is to your website visitors. It has to feel lightning fast, no loading, no endless spinners and page reloads. When our clients choose a package, we assess each website individually to ensure that it is appropriate. Websites will usually need somewhere between 1 and 3 CPU cores and somewhere between 1 and 3 GB of memory.  The resources your website needs will be considered carefully to ensure you are getting the most appropriate package. No more no less!

Steven Gerrard, The Gerrard Group

We have been using Bandicoot hosting services for the past few years and have been extremely pleased with the efficient, high quality and professional service provided. The daily monitoring and scanning of our website, plus daily back-ups and impressive uptime has provided us with the reassurance and peace of mind needed for us as a small team to concentrate on other areas of our business. The speed of response when there have been any issues is exceptional with most issues being addressed within an hour of being raised. We would, without hesitation, recommend Bandicoot to other businesses.

Clare Hands, Fennel UK

Bandicoot took over our hosting service several years ago. Prior to this, we had problems with our provider. Bandicoot deal with everything from regular back ups, security, occurring issues.  They are incredibly friendly and easy to deal with. Any IT issues we have are dealt with promptly. I genuinely don’t know how we managed before.

Frequently Asked Questions

A host provides a secure server where your site can be stored and interacted with by your administrators and visitors. The host will monitor the server 24hours a day and ensure that regular backups of your site are taken in case the server was to malfunction or be damaged by fire, flood etc.

A host will ensure any downtime is minimal e.g. when the server is replaced and your data is transferred to a new server.

If you have a log in facility, an SSL certificate encrypts users email addresses and passwords so they don’t go across the internet in plain text when visitors log in.

Sites without SSL certificates are unsecured and don’t show the padlock that people look for assurance that their email address and password is safe.

If you have an SSL certificate, visitors email addresses and passwords cannot fall into the wrong hands.

If you take payments through your site without an SSL certificate, then someone could get your log in details, log in as you and change where to send payments to. It’s what we call “a man in the middle attack”.

A domain name, like a phone number, is how potential visitors find you. It is also used to send emails through. For example our domain is bandicoot.co.uk so we can use that as an email address for all our staff e.g. stuart@bandicoot.co.uk and for emails sent to a general address on the website info@bandicoot.co.uk . Unlike a phone number you have to purchase a domain name and register it.

If you fail the assessment, the assessor will prepare a report outlining the reasons and the remediation work that is required in order to achieve a pass. There is then a 30 day retesting window where the organisation can carry out the remediation steps that are listed.
