I look at things a little differently.

Less stress

I founded Astrantium Hosting because clients were saying that finding good hosting for their websites was just too stressful. 

Recent changes in technology had resulted in their established websites looking outdated.

Google changes its ranking algorithm

Forthcoming changes to the way Google ranks sites (see the latest news from Google Search Liaison) and GDPR mean that many established websites will need an overhaul this year.

The smartphone revolution

People are increasingly using smartphones which don’t display traditional sidebar layouts very well. 

Jumping from page to page isn’t good on a smartphone either – the advice use to be ‘don’t make them scroll.’  The advice now should be ‘don’t make them jump.’

It matters if your site is not secure

It’s worth noting that for a while now Google has given a higher score to secure sites  If your site address starts http:// instead of https:// you should consider an update. 

And if you or your developer haven’t kept up with updates or patches to the underlying content management system you may find you are losing some functionality.

How can Astrantium help?

So you’ve got a website and changes have become necessary but there doesn’t seem to be anything on offer between an expensive redesign by a developer or a scary do-it-yourself approach. 

That’s where Astrantium comes in. We offer friendly hosting and lots of help to migrate your existing content or start a completely new site. 

Let’s begin with a chat over Skype (or the telephone) to talk about your website and what we can do to help you.

A list of features you might want to achieve…

  • A fluid layout that works on phones, tablets and laptops
  • Easier content management and more control
