Secure Web Hosting Web Hosting Kelowna

Hundreds of businesses, non-profits, and organizations trust Navigator Multimedia with their website hosting needs. Security, reliability, speed, and customer care are all things you should be looking for in a web hosting provider; it’s been our focus for over twenty-five years.

Top Okanagan Website Hosting Service

Not all web hosting services are created equal. There are different types of web hosting and domain name registration services out there, with pricing ranging from a few dollars per month to very expensive, depending on the provider and your hosting needs.

Leveraging the best tech in VPS hosting and cloud hosting, we’ll work with you to create a web hosting package that suits your needs and your budget.

We offer a reliable, quality service. Web hosting that’s so good, you forget you even need it. And if there’s ever an issue, a question, or a change of plans, support is just a phone call away.

Whether you need a WordPress website & WordPress hosting, a stunning Shopify ecommerce store, or a completely customized website to fit your unique business needs, Navigator Multimedia has the technical skills to make your website dreams a reality.

Website Security

We can help if your business site needs extra security. Many WordPress sites are vulnerable to hacks because they aren’t designed with security in mind or updated to the latest versions. We’ll keep your site online and your website’s domain secure – rain or shine.

HTTPS Website Encryption

All of our hosted client websites come with HTTPS/SSL Certification. By encrypting the connection between a person’s web browser and our server, the information sent and received is protected.

Secure Servers

We use advanced hosting setups that isolate client websites from threats that other hosting providers are vulnerable to. Using self-managed hosting from unreliable providers means it’s easier for your site to encounter uptime disruptions or outright hacks. Choose a hosting company that doesn’t compromise by cutting corners on storage space, speed, or reliability.

Backup and Recovery

We keep redundant copies of your website backed up automatically. If your site ever encounters an issue, we can quickly restore it to a previous version, so you and your visitors aren’t inconvenienced.

We have a full-time server administrator who ensures any issues are tackled with promptness and clarity. We take care of the things you need to ensure your site stays online and doesn’t frustrate your web users.

Up to 10 Email accounts are included at no charge in every hosting package, and our WordPress websites enjoy monitored, routine updates by our in-house System Administrator.

Industry-leading Content Delivery Network (CDN) Services

We have partnered with Fastly CDN to offer advanced website optimization to improve site speed and user experiences for businesses that serve a high volume or geographically wide audience.

Web hosting takes care of the tools, storage, data transfer, bandwidth, and oftentimes the email accounts you need to get your site online. So how do you determine the best web hosting package for your needs? Start here:

  • Consider the size of your site
    The amount of web hosting “muscle” required is often dependent on the demands of the site. How much space do you need to store data? How much traffic to the site do you anticipate? These are questions to review with your prospective hosting providers.
  • Customize to suit your needs
    Professional web hosting providers offer scalable packages with hosting options you can customize, even over time if required. Ask about our solutions for more information.
  • Get acquainted with customer service
    Save time and stress by working with a hosting provider that offers real-time, human support. Whether you have a question or issue, you should know who to turn to for assistance.

Yes. Where the server is hosted relative to site traffic, shared vs. VPS, how well it’s kept up to date will all have an effect on server response times and page speed. Website load time must be fast (>3sec) to maximize website engagement metrics, SEO, and conversion. A CDN might be a good fit for your business if you are in e-commerce or serve a large audience.

The short answer, Google wants a more secure internet.

Adding HTTPS to your website encrypts any information passed between the website and the visitor on the page. This was first required by ecommerce websites collecting billing and credit card information. Today it has become a best practice to secure all websites to protect the user from entering even a contact form. Google Analytics also cannot identify referral traffic from secure (HTTPS) to non-secure (HTTP) websites. It will see the user session, but group it as a “direct/(none)” source which is not very helpful for the insight!

Whenever a WordPress website is hacked, it’s usually due to either a weak admin password or a plugin that has not been maintained. Our Server Admin will run routine WordPress updates across all of our hosted websites. Rather than relying on a WordPress plugin for custom website functions we will build the functionality right into the website.
