What is hosting, maintenance, and SSL security?
A hosting service is a type of Internet hosting service that allows businesses like your own to make their website accessible via the World Wide Web.
Website maintenance is the act of regularly checking your website for issues and mistakes and keeping it updated and relevant.
SSL security is the standard technology for keeping an internet connection secure and safeguarding any sensitive data that is being sent between two systems, preventing criminals from reading and modifying any information transferred, including potential personal details.
All these features would have an individual cost. UENI is pleased to offer unlimited web hosting and maintenance at no cost whatsoever, as we believe that every small business should have its own online presence without having to invest too much.
SSL security is the only exception, as it requires extra effort from the development side. We're able to do this for all our customers that are on paid plans.
Why are these valuable?
Hosting and maintenance are the building blocks of creating a website. Without either of these, you cannot have a website run properly - they're essential for keeping your website live and accessible for viewers across the world.
An SSL security certificate for our paying customers is one of many features designed to boost your online presence. It smartly deals with the risk of fraudulent activity on your website, ensuring the safety of data of you and your own clients. This builds confidence in your business amongst customers and other businesses alike, along with building trust in your website among popular search engines such as Google.
