1. Website performance and growth potential


What does your site need to do now? How do you see it growing in the future? If you’re working towards a bigger business, more customers and more site visits, it’s important to know that you will be supported. 


Sites hosted through the Pixel Together service use dual global content delivery network (CDN) hosting on                             for all static content. This assures ultra-fast page loading speeds and high bandwidth. This not only supports your future growth, but it means you’re more likely to get there, as page load speed has become an important factor in search engine optimisation (SEO). 


When it comes to SEO, clean code is also really important. We work to continually optimise our code, making your site even more attractive to search engines and giving you a better chance of showing up in searches from potential customers or clients. 


To help you keep an eye on what’s going well, our inbuilt analytics dashboard gives you a straightforward snapshot on a single page. This means you and your clients can easily track your sites, without having to learn a complicated analytics tool.

2. Security, security, security

Online security is big news for lots of good reasons. As a business owner, you’re responsible for the data you hold, including information your customers and clients have provided to you. The best approach to keeping your business safe online is to be proactive. Pixel Together sites are all Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) secured as a default. 


We undertake regular penetration testing to make sure our hosting is best positioned for protection against attacks. Because our platform is continually updated, the latest security settings are continuously applied.


3. Day to day usability


It’s the little details that take something from good to exceptional. Because we know the process of creating something doesn’t always go completely to plan, every saved version of a Pixel Together site is backed up. That means you can easily roll your site back to an earlier version if you’re concerned about an update negatively impacting your analytics, and you need some time to sort it out. 


We also understand how frustrating it is when you design something that looks amazing, but your hosting provider cannot support the disk space you require for large graphic files. So Pixel Together sites have unlimited bandwidth and disk space, meaning an image heavy site will run smoothly. This also means that as your site evolves, uploading more content is not a problem.


And what about upgrades? These happen without maintenance windows, so there is no requirement to take your site offline.


We firmly believe that you shouldn’t have to know the end-to-end process of hosting a site in order to have a site that looks beautiful and performs as you want it to. But if you want to know more about any of the aspects of hosting that we’ve discussed, our support team is happy to provide any additional information.
