Web Hosting

Your web hosting choice is important because site speed plays an important part in your site’s search rankings. It’s also a key factor when you want to deliver high quality customer experiences.


Whatever your sales volume, traffic or budget our ecommerce web hosting service will help ensure your site meets and exceeds customer expectations.


To choose the best hosting for ecommerce there are many things to consider. You’ll require Payment Card Industry (PCI) Level 1 compliance. Your web site must be optimised and maintained for the best possible online performance. Effective page data caching and content resources shared in a Content Delivery Network (CDN) will improve load speeds.

Web hosting Case Study: Rayware

The Rayware Group has been a leading supplier of homewares to the British market since 1975. The whole group hosts a number of famous brands including Viners and Kilner Jars. As Magento 1 reached its end of life the business decided to migrate to Magento 2. They also required four new retail (B2C) websites for their various group brands. The Williams Commerce team handled their Magento hosting requirements and our migration experts oversaw the technical discovery and core site build.

Web hosting for your business


As your business grows your site must keep pace without affecting your customers’ experiences. Changing customer expectations and competitor activity mean you need to be ready to scale your ecommerce offer quickly and effectively. If your site can’t meet demand your visitor’s first impression of your business will be affected. Delays in page load times will reduce your page views and decrease customer satisfaction and conversion rates. Some customers will go away and never return.


It’s essential to keep your customers’ data safe. Your site must have a secure socket layer (SSL) certificate. SSL certificates are small files stored on your website’s server that encrypt data exchanges. They include a digital signature to verify your website. They are important for data transfer, credit card transactions, and secure browsing. If your site doesn’t have an SSL certificate browsers like Chrome will notify users it is ‘not secure’. This will reduce traffic to your site.


Site availability is essential for your growing ecommerce business. If high traffic volume slows down your site or causes it to crash you will lose customers. Just one hour of downtime could have a serious impact on your sales. More importantly, you could lose customers. Our ecommerce web hosting service will give you guaranteed uptime.


Williams Commerce web hosting services meet industry-standard security certifications including the PCI data security standards (DSS). We meet the five trusted principles of System and Organisation Controls (SOC) 2; security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality and privacy. We adhere to best practice for information security management systems set out by the International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) 27001. We also hold the UK government’s Cyber Essentials certification for keeping our clients’ information secure.


As part of your risk management policy, you will want to plan for regular backups of your ecommerce site. We can advise you on the best approach for your business. We’ll be happy to discuss full off-site server backups or incremental file system backups. The choice of support will depend on your requirements.


Keeping your website’s security updated is time-consuming, which is why we provide it as part of our web hosting service. Our server software is secure and regularly updated to protect your site against recognised security threats.

Williams built an integration layer connecting our various back office systems with our new ecommerce site. The ease of integrations was extremely impressive. We now have a truly flexible solution.
