For many business owners, the process of web hosting appears to be a straightforward process. A hosting provider is chosen and the business trusts them to securely host their website for online searchers to access. Simple. However, when it comes to web hosting for multiple domains and business websites, things can get confusing, quickly.
Since 1989, Eventurous Ltd has been raising the bar for corporate event management and team building for businesses across the UK. To see the scope of the events available and amount of images hosted on the site, take a look at the team building activities page.
In 2018, Garlands Leisure Ltd purchased Eventurous, adding the rapidly growing company to its existing family of trading businesses, including Garlands Corporate (a business that provides team development programmes) as well as Mythe Barn Events and Mythe Barn Weddings (corporate events and weddings at the award-winning Mythe Barn venue).
With each arm of the Garlands business family requiring its own website and promotional capabilities, it soon became obvious that a better web hosting solution would be needed.
Each of the websites within the Garlands business family ran on a variety of hosting sites. This required a complicated infrastructure, with increasing payments to multiple hosts, various administration and other challenges including site speed and reliability. The challenge of web hosting for multiple domains became even more apparent with the addition of a new and very large WordPress website for Eventurous. The new website is very image heavy due to the promotion of a wide range of team building events and so required excellent site speeds and reliable uptime.
Eventurous had previously contacted Cocoonfxmedia for website support services and had found them to be extremely friendly and helpful, providing good advice whenever it was required. After learning of their web hosting solutions for multiple websites, Eventurous decided that accessing their new web hosting service would make the whole process quicker and easier, providing one main point of access and support.
The web hosting solution that Cocoonfxmedia offered included unlimited unique websites, disk space, bandwidth and hosting at secure UK based data centres for increased site speed; this provided the ideal option for Garlands to host their multiple websites, including the ever-expanding, image heavy Eventurous website that required faster upload times and site speed.
The benefits of moving the multiple Garlands business websites over to the Cocoonfxmedia web hosting package was quickly apparent.
Cocoonfxmedia made the over to the cloud hosting service simple and understandable, providing access to cPanel for easy management of the websites. In addition to the smooth transition with zero downtime, there were now significant savings from hosting the websites with one provider.
Director of Eventurous Ltd and Garlands Leisure Ltd, Joe Garland commented:
“Before we had all our sites hosted with several companies. Moving to Cocoonfxmedia was simple and the savings have been so much more than we expected. Whenever we had any questions, the response times from James and the team was quick and helpful – we highly recommend the web hosting service by Cocoonfxmedia, especially if you have a number of businesses as we do here at Garlands.”
