Websites that fail to load within 2 or 3 seconds will see increased bounce rates – in fact, 40% of consumers won’t wait longer than 3 seconds before leaving a site. Poor load speeds can be very damaging to both your brand and your revenue. Speak to us today about supercharging your site.

High performance website hosting is key to any site being successful. Through collaboration with carefully selected partners Akiko Design provides enterprise grade managed hosting that ensures your website is both fast and secure.

We will review your digital needs and recommend the best solution and platform for your site; our wide range of hosting infrastructure includes Microsoft IIS, Linux, Nginx and cloud.

Using a managed hosting solution will save you and your business both time and money, here are some of the core benefits from using Akiko Design to manage this aspect of your digital setup:

Server Uptime and Security

By using Akiko Design’s managed hosting service you will relieve yourself of the burden of staying on top of your server monitoring and security. We’ll have checks in place to ensure the server is online, and on the rare chance it does go down we’ll be straight on it to get it back online. We’re so confident in our infrastructure that we offer a 99.99% uptime guarantee.

In a digital world security should not be taken lightly. That’s why Akiko Design will install patches and updates across all of our hardware as soon as they are released, maintain multiple layers of firewall and perform regular security audits and virus scans. Being proactive with security ensures vulnerabilities are addressed before they get exploited.

Backups and Disaster Recovery

Whilst being proactive with numerous security measures, we’ll also give you peace of mind that your data is backed up in a secure environment. These backup procedures will include both onsite and cloud based backups to cover both man-made and natural disasters. Data loss can be extremely costly to any organisation, it’s therefore essential to have such processes and procedures in place when choosing your next hosting partner.
