How Can Web Hosting Benefit Your Business

IT Support Essex: The term ‘Web Hosting’ is thrown around a lot in any IT department, but what does it actually mean? Essentially, web hosting is the service which allows individuals to post either a web page or website onto the internet. They are then stored or ‘hosted’ on computers called servers. Professional web hosting allows for technical support and increased web security which is simply not available free. But how exactly can professional web security benefit your business?

Reliability

If you were to choose a large hosting service, despite benefitting from the cheap service in the short term. Your company could actually be in jeopardy in the long term. As the customer,  you are lost in a vast sea of other companies which means no one is really looking after your site, which leads to poor service. Many times, large hosting sites are often a target for hackers as they can extract a lot of information quickly. However, with a dedicated hosting service you are less likely to get hacked and it in turns ends up being a lot more reliable.

Design Roam

A professional web hosting site can give you unrestricted access to how your website looks as well as what supporting technologies you wish to use. This will benefit your business as you don’t need to worry about compromising on certain aspects of your site. You have free reign to create your website, just how you want it.

Personalised Features

With a professional web hosting service you have access to a private domain name. This means that you are able to create personalised emails and email campaigns which contribute to increasing your brand recognition. Potential leads are more likely to use your service if they see that your email address somewhat reflects your company. This will also help maintain your work life balance as you can now introduce clients to your branded email system.

There are just three benefits of professional web hosting to your business. We can offer website hosting, design and domain services for your businesses all over the UK. If you would like more information that our team here at 39 Degress Support Essex offer. Get in touch today.

The Importance of Data Backup to Your Business When Moving Office

Whether you’re a small company still getting to grips with the business world or a multinational corporation with over 50 years’ experience, keeping your data safe and secure is vital. If it’s lost, you run the risk of it experiencing the detrimental effects to your company.

More and more businesses are switching to online data backup to ensure that valuable company information is safe from potential theft. Not only that, but having data backup online rather than a physical copy means that your information is protected from natural disasters should the unthinkable occur.

Here are the benefits that data backup can provide your business:

Protection

Data storage systems such as cloud storage can provide your business with additional protection should any theft or natural disasters occur. Also, this can be set up to back up files automatically which means you don’t have to do it manually. You can rest assured that every piece of data will be maintained.

Cost Effective

Of course, each business is unique. But what is one thing they all have in common? They are all susceptible to data breaches. If the correct protection hasn’t been put in place, even a small data attack can be detrimental to a new business. Online data backup is only a fraction of the price as setting up an individual system. This is massively appealing to new businesses wanting protection without making a large investment.

Restoration

Another benefit to online data back-up is in the event of a data attack, you are able to restore any lost information almost immediately after an incident has occurred. This means that your business will be able to get back to tip top shape as soon as possible.

How Can 39 Degress Services Help?

Fortunately, our cloud services can dynamically scale to meet the needs of its users, and because the service provider supplies the hardware and the software necessary for the service, there’s no need for your company to deploy its own resources and allocate IT staff to manage the service. If you would like more information to see how 39 Degress Services can help you, please don’t hesitate to get in touch!

We Love Essex – Welcome to Harlow

As the IT specialist for Essex, we make a big point of knowing our territory as well as our tech and we’ve learned a lot of amazing things about the county, and the towns we are most frequently found in. There’s more to the area than white vans and Estuary English, and we’re proud to be able to keep the computers running and the data monitored in all our favourite areas.

We’ve amassed a lot of weird and wonderful information about Essex which is too much fun to keep to ourselves – but even if we’re not professional historians, we can certainly help you out with anything computer-related…

Harlow – Our new head office and stomping ground
• Harlow New Town was planned in 1947 by Sir Frederick Gibberd, primarily to house people from East London whose homes had been destroyed during the war. So many young families moved out of these disadvantaged areas that Harlow was nicknamed Pram Town.
• Britain’s first pedestrianized shopping precinct, and first residential tower block, were both constructed in Harlow. The tower block – The Lawn – was built in 1951 and is now a Grade 2 Listed Building.
• The pubs in Harlow New Town were named after butterflies and moths – such as Essex Skipper, Poplar Kitten, Drinker Moth, Purple Emperor and Painted Lady – to differentiate them from the more historic inns of the neighbouring Old Harlow.
• Harlow is also renowned as a Sculpture Town, its public spaces as well as its galleries boasting a large collection of sculptures by artists such as Moore, Frink, Rodin and Hepworth.
• Harlow’s MP, Robert Halfon is a founder of the Parliamentary Academy and in 2010, engaged the first MP’s Apprentice in Parliament.
