Website Hosting

Why does good website hosting matter for your business?


At Panther we believe that good website hosting isn’t just optional, but essential. And furthermore, it shouldn’t be costly. Our web hosting solutions are not only powered by the highest performing data providers in the industry, we are proud to offer incredible value compared to the competition.

Website hosting is the foundation that your website is built on. Often overlooked, it can have a big impact on search engine rankings and viewer to customer conversion rates.

Research by Google has found that over 50% users will abandon a website if it takes longer than 3 seconds to load. Websites which load in under 3 seconds enjoy 35% lower bounce rates and 60% more page views per session. That is to say nothing of the hassle or potential loss of earnings caused by frequent website downtime, or the implications of website hacking.

Industry Leading Performance


Even our entry level hosting solutions are hosted entirely on solid state hard drives. That means lightning fast performance is built in at the hardware level. Unlike almost all of the competition, a well optimised page will load in under 3 seconds even on our entry level hosting solutions.

And if your requirements increase, you can seamlessly upgrade to our VPS or dedicated hosting solutions which provide up to 12 core CPU’s, 64gb of RAM and 240gb of SSD storage.

Truly Unlimited


Unlike many other hosting solutions which claim to be unlimited, our hosting is truly unlimited.

That means you can host an unlimited number of websites, on an unlimited number of domains, with an unlimited number of free SSL certificates, with an unlimited number of databases, using a truly unlimited amount of bandwidth.

Of course if you try to put an unlimited number of visitors or video streaming through our entry level hosting plan the speed may suffer, and that’s why we also offer more advanced solutions for very high traffic sites. But we will never place artificial limitations on you.

100% Up-time, Guaranteed


That’s right, 100% up-time guaranteed. If your site goes down for any reason you will be credited with free days for every hour the site is down. That is how committed we are to good hosting.

If a site goes down, you could lose revenue, lose opportunities, lose productivity. Our top priority is to make sure that never happens.

How can I move my website over to Panther Business IT Services hosting?


If you would like to benefit from faster, more reliable and better value hosting with Panther, we would be happy to advise you on the migration process.

The exact process will depend on which platform your current website is built on and where it’s currently hosted. Rest assured that we are highly experienced in this procedure. We are happy to carry out any work outside of high traffic hours, and will always put contingencies in place to mitigate against unforeseen problems.

In a best case scenario a migration can take just a few hours, and the worst case scenario is a website which requires substantial re-development to migrate. But if a site does need a lot of work to migrate, there will be other long term benefits accrued such as better security and easier updates in future.

If you have an existing website and you’re not sure about moving it, please get in touch and we’d be happy to advise.

How much does it cost?


That depends on your requirements. To see a full breakdown of costs and features please see below. A good rule of thumb is that a website with less than 5000 visitors per month, and not hosting video or thousands of HD images, should be fine on our entry level solution.

As your site gets more visitors, hosts more data, or has greater database demands in the form of online shopping, you may wish to upgrade to a VPS or dedicated server to maintain the performance of your site.

We are happy to assist with the upgrade process at no additional cost (other than increased hosting costs) if this becomes necessary.

Is the system reliable, is Panther dependable?


Our technology providers are the best in the industry, enjoying a near perfect 99.97% up-time over the last 10 years.

All technical support for our web hosting solutions is provided free of charge.

Cloud Website Hosting – Features & Pricing


Cloud website hosting is our entry level hosting solution. It is generally appropriate for most small businesses with static or portfolio style websites. This hosting solution provides exceptional value and performance. After all, even a low traffic website needs fast, reliable, secure and flexible hosting.

If you ever need to upgrade to a VPS (the next level up), or even a dedicated server, as your website grows or gains more features, we can do that for you seamlessly.

VPS Website Hosting – Features & Pricing


A ‘VPS’ is a virtual private server. This is a type of website hosting which guarantees a certain resource allocation, rather than resources being flexibly scaled depending on demand (i.e cloud hosting). A VPS is generally required by e-commerce websites or websites hosting large amounts of video/HD+ images.

Although our cloud hosting solution offers unlimited bandwidth, you may reach a level of demand (or have sudden demand spikes) where the guaranteed performance of a VPS is required. Our VPS website hosting soultions also offer some advanced technical features required by certain projects.

You can seamlessly switch between the VPS hosting levels below as required.
