FAST + RELIABLE + FULLY MANAGED

Fast and Reliable

Here’s a couple of good reasons why it’s so important to run a quick eCommerce website:

  1. Your customers won’t wait. Research shows that even minimal delays in page load times can have significant impact on conversion rates. If you’re customers are waiting for slow pages to load, it’s likely you’ll loose them before they make it to the cart or checkout.
  2. Google loves speed. Googles knows when visitors bounce from your site and they know when it’s related to slow page load times (cleaver bunch aren’t they?). It follows that quicker sites offer a better user experience and hence more engagement and the end result of this is generally a more favourable ranking for quicker sites, where all other ranking factors are equal.

Magento has a reputation for being a “resource beast” and for good reason. Magento is a very powerful, complex and hence resource hungry application. You’ll only get so far with “standard” website hosting. Once traffic increases to a critical level your site will encounter issues with site performance, sometimes terminal – total site failure. This is obviously an unacceptable scenario for serious businesses.

Benefits of Curata Hosting

There are many…

  1. Single Provider. You’ll have a single point of contact for all of your website related enquiries and issues, and you won’t ever get stuck in the middle of the “web host” vs “web developer” argument.
  2. Fully managed. We take a proactive approach to all of the ongoing maintenance of the web server and application (WordPress).
  3. Fast. We use powerful infrastructure to ensure your site makes a positive impact through its performance.
  4. Application Support. If any issues arise due to the application itself (WordPress) we’ll rectify those too.
  5. Version control and deployment system. We only develop and test on the staging server to safeguard against live site breakage.
  6. Flexible Invoicing. Choose between monthly or annual invoicing.

Hosting Service Inclusions

  • AWS Infrastructure – Utilisation of AWS EC2 infrastructure, providing powerful, reliable and scalable solutions.

  • Scalability – Our web solutions allow the future increase in resource (hardware upgrade) to take place with no or minimal impact on the business.  Note that additional charges may apply where work upgrade work is required within 12 months.
