Hosting Your Customer Experience

Hosting is that element of a website no one wants to think too much about, but it’s actually mission critical. We are happy to take the decision off your plate. We offer hosting via WP Engine. What this means to you is that Hammersmith Support has a dedicated server hosting only our customers. 

This creates a favorable experience for your customers by impacting your site’s speed, reliability, and prevention of “site downs”.

A 1-second delay in load time can impact conversion by up to 20% in retail.

Your customers choose to spend time on your site, we want them to be content, easily able to find what they seek, and safe while visiting. 

We equip our server with Global Edge Security, an enterprise-grade performance and security add-on. This means safe and secure purchasing for your customers and a promise that your content will stay under your control.

Hammersmith’s service feels like an extension of our own team. I feel their passion for our work every time I reach out with the most minute question or last-minute request. We have a real peace of mind knowing that Hammersmith is just a quick email or phone call away.
