Better Hosting For Our Clients
At First Scribe, we want to keep delivering the highest quality tools to our clients, so, we are proud to announce our partnership with Rackspace. Rackspace is the world’s leading specialist in the hosting and cloud computing industry. This new relationship will allow us to provide our eCommerce clients with the best dedicated, cloud and email hosting services.
We chose Rackspace because they are reliable, they are able to keep your website running as fast as possible and they allow flexibility for each individual site. We considered Amazon’s cloud hosting alternative but in the last 12 months that system has caused noticeable outages for 2 of our clients. Rackspace delivered 100% uptime during that timeframe.
Cloud Hosting for eCommerce
Cloud hosting delivers many benefits for eCommerce sites of all sizes.
- Speed – When you switch over to cloud hosting, you can easily take advantage of all the unique ways Magento can display your products. We developed a product zoom and live shopping cart for Pour La Victoire that would not be possible if they were not hosting in the cloud.
- Reliability - When you receive a lot of unsuspected traffic on a dedicated server it could potentially crash your site. If you are hosting in the cloud, you can easily adapt to the increase and keep your site running.
- Scalability– With cloud hosting, you don’t have to worry about holding on to extra servers in case of a rapid increase in visits or wasting money with those same servers sitting around.
Simply, cloud hosting allows you to focus on your business and not worry about wasting money on aging hardware.
Cloud Hosting for SEO
When you host in the cloud it can help your website's optimization:
- Speed – If your website loads fast, Google will reward you with a better search engine ranking.
- Reliability– On top of having a fast website, Google will also reward you with a better ranking if your website is always working.
