Fully Managed Website Hosting

Website hosting is your site's delivery system. There's no point in having a great website if your potential customers can't access it properly.

Sensible Elephant's Fully Managed Website Hosting is super-fast, utterly secure, and supremely reliable.

Settling for slow website hosting is like building a wall between your website and your customers; one that nobody cares to climb.

A website's success depends entirely on the reliability of its hosting.

When we say "Fully Managed", we really mean it.

 

Compare Sensible Elephant’s Website Hosting with any  competitor.
Then give us a call and we’ll take care of everything.

*Shared* hosting? Seriously?

 

Not with Sensible Elephant.  You won’t be sharing your web space and bandwidth with umpteen other web sites. 
We only offer discrete hosting, for the fastest, most secure and most reliable service available anywhere.

What is “Sensible Hosting”?

There’s a *lot* of information here, and well, we realise it’s a fairly dry subject!

So if all you need to know is that we’ll take great care of you, then connect with us now to take advantage of the best website hosting plan in the business.

However, if you feel more comfortable knowing all the nitty gritty, treat yourself to a large mug of steaming hot coffee and a comfy seat and keep reading.

Ready, set, go!

So you have a great website: visually stunning, informative, and properly optimised for search engines. Well done! Now it needs to be hosted on the internet so it can be seen by all those potential customers.

To that end, we offer the best fully managed website hosting package you’ll find anywhere, and the first year is included free with every website we design.

But if you already have a website, you can still take advantage of Sensible Hosting.  You take care of your business, and we’ll take care of your website, managing all the tasks that other hosts leave you to deal with yourself: we provide a better service.

Read on to find out why Sensible Hosting is the best in the business, or connect with us to find out more.

Sensible Elephant’s Fully Managed Website Hosting facilitates rewarding digital experiences, so you can stay focused on what you do.

Succeed in business and enjoy a meaningful work/life balance.

Everything You Need to Host Your Website

At Sensible Elephant, we believe that once your website is online, you should be free to take care of business, not have to take care of all those complicated tasks to keep your site up to date, safe, and available.

To that end, there are a number of services that we feel are absolutely essential for hosting a modern website:

Speed

Your website’s visitors simply won’t wait more than a few seconds for a page to load; they’ll quickly move to a competitor’s site that opens faster, and just like that, you’ve lost a customer.

That’s why you need the fastest hosting available, not a s-l-o-w shared hosting space in which umpteen other websites compete for the same hosting capacity and bandwidth.

Domain Renewal

You should expect your website domain name to be renewed for you automatically.

This should be free.

Space

Graphics, photos and videos all take up a lot of space, but you shouldn’t have to worry about running out of space for your website.

You should be confident that there’s plenty of space for your website to grow over time.

Tested Updates

There’s a lot of software running in the background on the web server, and its subject to frequent updates.

This should all be managed for you, with every update being fully tested before being applied to ensure it doesn’t cause any problems for your site due to introducing bugs or incompatibilities.

Security

Site Security Certificates should be renewed for you automatically, without additional costs.

Your site should be subject to continuous monitoring for suspicious behaviour with a 24/7 automated site security watchdog, and if the worst should happen, your site should be restored for you from a daily backup.

Free Site Edits

Everyone needs to make a few minor edits to their site over the course of a year, small things that should only take a few minutes to change.

This should all be included for free, right?

Fully Managed

Logging in daily to update this or check the security on that, make sure your website is available and running as fast as possible, fixing any problems as they arise, and the steep learning curve as you learn how to do it all properly… who needs it? After all, you didn’t start your business to become a web expert yourself, did you?

It all takes up valuable time that you should be able to spend on your business, making money. Or enjoy spending free time with friends and family (or by ignoring them while you smite heathens on the XBox).

But you have to know everything’s taken care of. It can’t be left to chance, and you don’t want to do it yourself.

“Small businesses may not know that web hosting providers offer search engine marketing solutions and web site design solutions that help keep visitors engaged and create a pleasant shopping experience.  You need a service provider who can really be a partner and help you navigate through the waters of growing your business on the internet.”

-John Lally

One Simple Package:

We’ve put together a single hosting package that features all the above and more.  Just one.

We haven’t made up a cheaper package that offers none of the things you need and will end up costing you more for a poorer service; it’s a cheap marketing trick.

Nor have we have made up ‘premium’. ‘executive’ or ‘luxury’ packages to provide virtual benefits that you should expect as a matter of course, and we simply won’t accept anything but the highest standard of service:

Everything you need, nothing you don’t, and absolutely no hassle.

Simple, isn’t it?

If in doubt, compare our hosting service to any competitor – nobody offers the same quality of hosting as Sensible Elephant – not at any price.

Oh, and if we design a website for you, your first year of Sensible Hosting is absolutely free…

Nothing You Don’t Need

It’s worth repeating this: we don’t offer a range of ever more expensive hosting packages and constantly badger you to upgrade, because we feel that your hosting package should include everything. Just like ours does.

Any lower level of service is simply unacceptable in our view. And we haven’t gone to town to add in virtual or even fictional services to make up “The Ultimate Uber-Excelsior Hosting Package of Muchness” for double or triple the price: everything you need is already there:

No nonsense, no hassle, no confusion.

So don’t let the modest price fool you; we’re confident this is the best web hosting service available. Period.

Security

Security is more important than ever these days.

You need to know your website won’t be hacked, and that your customers can visit your site safe in the knowledge that they can do so securely. We ensure that your website is always kept as secure as possible, and do so as standard.

Our security expert was trained by the Ministry of Defence. Nuff sed?

Site Security Certificates are provided without charge and we update them as required. We monitor your website 24/7 for any signs of suspicious activity, and any attempted malicious actions are manually tracked and immediately reported to the appropriate authorities. We take daily backups of your website and have them stored offsite, so if anything should happen to your website, or indeed, the building containing the servers it’s hosted on, we can have you back up and running in a jiffy.

Yup, it’s all included, and you won’t need to deal with any of this… because we take care of everything.

We Take Care of Everything

This isn’t just a meaningless catchphrase: it’s a promise we take very seriously, so let’s just say that again:

“We take care of everything.”

We save you from DIY website hosting

With other hosting companies you’ll be granted access to a hosting dashboard offering you dozens of applications to tailor and manage your hosting service. The chances are, however much time you devote to learning how to use all this, you probably won’t understand it like we do. That’s why with our hosting, you’ll never even see it. We manage all this for you so you get the best web hosting experience possible without the steep learning curve, and without the risk of your site going offline because of a minor error in the custom settings.

Apps, updates, and integration

You’ll also find that many of these server apps that run in the background are updated and modified throughout the year. In contrast, we make sure that your site enjoys the latest stable offerings of these apps at all times: we fully test all updates, and then we upgrade it for you, making any changes required to your site to remain compatible with the newest, most secure software versions.

Keep your website current

Most companies will want to make minor changes to the content of their website throughout the year: a price change here, a new product or service there, a new photo, or whatever. This is where our competitors rake in the cash, charging a minimum of one hour’s work for a change that might take as little as thirty seconds. We include minor changes as part of the hosting package – no additional cost.

More time to make your business thrive

Or just kick back and relax. Enjoy the peace of mind that comes from knowing your website is in safe hands with Sensible Elephant, because we take care of everything.

The Sensible Hosting Package

Sensible Hosting is fast, secure, resilient, and fully managed for you. For those who want to know in detail what this package includes, we’ve broken down the main services below. There’s more, but it all gets rather technical: just know you can hold us to one simple premise: we charge one low price, and then we take care of everything.

Why not switch to our hosting service right now? We’ll manage the transfer for you completely, so why not connect with us to discuss your needs.

Here’s what our Sensible Hosting package includes:

Sensible Elephant WebMasters: Sensible Hosting - One Year's Web Hosting

One Year’s Web Hosting

 
Sensible Hosting keeps your website online for just £125 per year.

This covers our entire range of hosting services for 365 days. In order to continue to take advantage of our hosting service, this service must be renewed annually, and of course, we’ll notify you well in advance.

Sensible Elephant WebMasters: Sensible Hosting - Completely Managed For You

Completely Managed For You

Sensible Hosting is a fully managed service:

We take care of everything.

You won’t have to learn new skills, manage your domain name, security certificate, backups, restorations, apply updates and upgrades or minor website modifications yourself.

We do all the heavy lifting so you can relax.

Let us look after your website, so your website can get to work for your business. And that leaves you free to pop your feet up, have a nice hot cuppa, and enjoy a better work/life balance.

Now doesn’t that sound nice?

Sensible Elephant WebMasters: Sensible Hosting - Super-Fast Page Loading

Super-Fast Page Loading

 
Contemporary websites often incorporate a lot of graphics, photography and video;the trouble is, all of these things come at a price: large files require significant resources.

Whilst your customers might be viewing your site with super-fast fibre broadband or 4G connections, if the site is being hosted on a shared server with limited bandwidth, your web page will load s-l-o-w-l-y for every potential customer. This can be disastrous for your business; most web browsers today won’t wait more than a few seconds for a page to load before cursing and quickly moving on to a competitor’s site.

Sensible hosting is fast! I mean, REALLY fast!

Discrete hosting and high bandwidth means your site will always be available and will load quickly.

Keep your customers happy, and they’ll keep you happy.

Sensible Elephant WebMasters: Sensible Hosting - Up to 10GB of Data

Up to 10GB of Data

A contemporary website includes plenty of graphics, photos and even video content, and this all takes up precious hosting space.

Sensible Hosting offers a gargantuan 10 Gigabytes of storage space for your website, more than enough for the needs of most SMEs.

In the unlikely event you should need more space it can be added for a modest additional cost, but it really shouldn’t be necessary.

Sensible Elephant WebMasters: Sensible Hosting - Domain Name Renewal Included

Domain Name Renewal Included*

 
Your website’s domain name registration has to be renewed annually. This would normally be left to you to deal with.

At Sensible Elephant, we believe it should be part of the hosting service, so we manage it for you.

If you have a .co.uk domain, and you allow us to manage the domain registration, we’ll renew it on your behalf for free.

*Wait – what about that asterisk?

Some domains are considerably more expensive to register (for arcane reasons known only to the the world’s domain registrars). If you have a different type of domain (e.g. .life, .me, .org, etc.), there may be additional costs involved with renewal, and we may have to pass these additional costs on to you.

Don’t worry, we’re not out to squeeze you for extra cash. We get the lowest prices on earth for domain renewal so any such costs should be fairly modest.

Sensible Elephant WebMasters: Sensible Hosting - Minor Website Edits Included

Minor Website Edits Included*

 
Any *small* changes you need to make to your website throughout the year are included as part of the package.

* What, more asterisks?

Well yes… because it doesn’t mean you can enjoy a Full Site Refresh for free, but we can make minor changes for you as required without you worrying about being charged an arm and a leg for the privilege. We’ll always try to accommodate you.

Sensible Elephant WebMasters: Sensible Hosting - Sensible Security and Backups.

Sensible Security & Backups

We use the very latest technologies to continuously monitor and protect your website from hackers, malicious software and all other threats, and rapidly take the appropriate action to counter them.

Security is at the core of everything we do which is why we include a site security certificate (if you don’t have one already) as standard for every site hosted by us.

Sensible Elephant ensures that web security is something you’ll never need to worry about, and your customers can be confident of enjoying a safe visit to your site.

For additional peace of mind, we backup your site every day, so, should the worst happen, we can get your business back online and serving customers quickly and efficiently.
