Our comprehensive stack of services will simplify and enhance your relationship with online marketing.
Websites don't exist in the ether - all websites need to exist somewhere. Each site is made from data hosted on a web server, usually one based in a large data centre. Web hosting refers to deploying and maintaining this service.
What is a Web Server?
A web server is the physical computer that a website exists on. These computers are different from the PC's that we're used to using, and are built specifically for continuous use with high uptime and multiple levels of security.
Choosing the right hosting plan is critical
Not all web hosting services are created equally and choosing the right website hosting plan is an important consideration for website speed, security and reliability.
Your websites hosting is an important consideration for search engine visibility, and can have a huge impact on conversation rates. Customers like intuitive and fast online experiences and a poor web host can badly impact day to day operations.
While there are some big companies that exclusively host, we offer a complete solution that includes all aspects of digital marketing.
Why should you host with Digital Energy?

We automate frequent backups of your website and store these backups in a secure cloud encrypted environment.
Our Cloud-Based Web Hosting
We use cloud-based website hosting from Digital Ocean, one of the industry’s largest and most reliable hosting providers. Our packages are diverse and range from shared hosting through to dedicated bespoke plans. By using a popular cloud hosting provider, we mitigate risk by ensuring hosting packages can be upgraded rapidly as your requirements change.
Key benefits of our cloud hosting include:
Server uptime is critical, not just to ensure that sales can be made, and information relayed to customers, but because low website availability can undermine trust in your brand, and negatively impact your search engine presence. Cloud-based web hosting mitigates against website outages and ensures your website is never dependant on a single computer.
Increased server uptime
Our cloud hosting is flexible and cost-effective. While traditional hosting meant investing in a dedicated online server and associated fixed costs, regardless of it's final usage, cloud hosting is adaptable and scales with your organisation as it grows. With our cloud-based web hosting, you only pay for the resources you use, and you don't have to worry about fixed costs for a server’s initial setup or ongoing maintenance.
In a traditional, single-server setup, disaster recovery is typically not possible unless you've made prior arrangements, as your websites data is hosted on a single server. By contrast, cloud-based website hosting allows your data to be synchronised automatically to a cluster of computers, creating broader resilience.
Backup & recovery
Location independence & server latency
Server location can have a big impact on website speed.
A server that's physically far away from your customers will negatively impact your online performance. Our cloud hosting infrastructure works in parallel with Cloudflare's content delivery network, allowing resources such as images, videos and other content, to be located nearer to your website's visitors, no matter where in the world they're located.
Digital Energy offer secure cloud hosting that's safe and resilient. We offer fantastic uptime (on average over 99.99%), and constantly monitor our network, ensuring smooth sailing for our customers. We take the worry away from hosting by upgrading plans based on usage, tackling security concerns, configuring firewalls and other security tools and much more. While many large providers oversaturate their shared plans, meaning poorer speeds and uptime, we constantly upgrade our network and stay within strict quality assurance guidelines. When you host with us, you can always be sure your website will be up and running, quick and protected.
We operate multiple contingency strategies, with frequent backups created and stored in multiple regions. With Digital Energy, there is never a single source of failure.

No, we will never limit your hosting packages. However, if we think we can optimise your online offering to increase speed or security we will feed this information back to you.
Hosting has a big impact on website speed, but it's not the only consideration. How your website is built also plays a role. We will work with you to re-deploy your website using best practice techniques, ensuring it's as fast as it can possibly be.
We can either bill monthly, or annually. Cost ranges based on the hosting used. Shared plans start from £30p/m and includes ongoing website maintenance, while bespoke dedicated plans can be significantly more costly.
Most websites can be transferred within two working days. More bespoke setups can take longer and often require broader levels of testing.
No! It's on us. Although, we'd never say no to a coffee if you pop by.
