When you have your website built by Cognique, you’ll have the option of us hosting the website for you, taking away the hassle of managing this yourself. However, if you want to use your own hosting, that’s fine too!
Our hosting comes with 3GB of storage, 1GB of memory and unlimited bandwidth. Additional storage can be added for £2 per month per 1GB (billed annually).
Your website is spread across hundreds of cloud servers – not just one. So you’re guaranteed incredible reliability and performance.
We’ll add and update your DNS records as and when you need them changing. Or, we can give you full access and you can control them yourself.
Need full access to your website files and scripts? No problem, we can create you an unlimited number of FTP accounts.
Certain tasks on your website may need to run frequently on a scheduled basis (such as importing/exporting products). Our web hosting allows an unlimited number of CRON jobs which will take care of this for you.
Our hosting has multiple MySQL servers. This ensures the MySQL server you’re on is never overloaded.
Having your website designed and developed by Cognique means we will take care of your hosting account. However, if you need full access, we can provide you with a customised control panel.
If you don’t have a domain name, we can register one for you as part of your website project. However, we recommend to clients that, where possible, they register and renew their domain name within the control panel of their registrar of choice. This then gives you complete control over your company’s domain asset, and allows you to point it at any hosting server you wish.
Cognique specialise in the hosting of websites. We DO NOT provide email services or support.
This is for a number of reasons, the main one being our clients usually already have their own email services and wish to keep them in place when they have a new website developed. Email can involve a huge amount of resource for maintenance and support, (which we don’t provide) which makes it more suited to an IT company.
If you don’t have any email services in place, or you are interested in having a collaborative email solution installed, then we recommend our preferred I.T. provider PC Comms. They offer a fully managed, cloud based Office 365 or Google G.Suite solution. PC Comms also specialise in providing businesses with robust protection from viruses and malware.
Website security isn’t the most exciting topic, we get it!

New privacy regulations are coming in next year and many companies are unprepared.The GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) will come into force on May 25th 2018. Although it might seem a long way off, the new regulations are much more involved than current UK Data Protection Act rules, so there’s lots for businesses to do in preparation.Although it's unlikely, those who don't comply could be hit with huge fines – up to 20 million euros or 4% of turnover, whichever is higher.

Thinking about buying an off-the-shelf WordPress template or wondering if a bespoke Wordpress theme would be better? In this blog we cover the pros and cons of both.
