The right hosting plan can make all of the difference when it comes to building an online platform for your business. Secure, managed e-commerce website hosting services are often perfect solutions for business owners who are looking to get a stronger foothold in their industry. Hosting with minimal downtime is an important tool in the online business owner’s arsenal. Reliable providers offer an assortment of managed services, which give website owners the freedom to focus on other important business-related tasks.
Greater Reliability and Resources
If your company is growing, you need a hosting solution that won't hinder your progress. Many online businesses make the mistake of continuing to rely on shared hosting, even after they've expanded their online presence. While shared hosting is reliable enough for small startups, it's usually problematic for expanding e-commerce businesses. Sharing resources with innumerable other users often creates problems with uptime, as well as security. Through JaguarPC, you can purchase the ideal hosting plan for your growing company, such as dedicated, hybrid, VPS, or cloud hosting.
Managed Hosting Services
Many hosting providers offer different levels of managed services, which are ideal for busy e-commerce website owners. Instead of having to manage hardware and software, business owners often find it easier to rely on experienced hosts to do it for them. E-commerce website hosting doesn’t have to be complicated. Whether you’re interested in semi-managed, managed, or managed plus, you’ll enjoy dependable services without the headaches of manual administration. You’ll have the freedom to scale resources as necessary, without having to make any on-site configurations.
Without reliable uptime, enhancing and growing a company is more difficult. The world of e-commerce is highly competitive, and it’s important to keep up with other businesses in your field. Companies are always on the lookout for new ways to get ahead of the competition. One of the best ways to boost credibility and exposure and get in favor with potential customers is by delivering consistent uptime. Internet users typically give websites only a few seconds to load before they click away and search for another similar site. If your hosting services leave much to be desired in terms of uptime, you’ll lose profitable opportunities.

When you're the owner of a business website, it's important to make sure your information is well-protected and safe from accidental loss. Backing up your information offline is always an intelligent idea; however, you likely don't have the time to devote to securing your data on a daily basis. For this reason, you need a web hosting provider that offers daily backup service, regardless of the type of hosting you’re looking to purchase.
Keep Your Site Up & Running
If you manage an e-commerce or promotional site for your company, ensuring that your web host provides daily backups, as opposed to just data backups is crucial. This way, even if you make updates to your site nearly every day, you can feel assured in the knowledge that your content is available from multiple sources.When you're the owner of a business website, it's important to make sure your information is well-protected and safe from accidental loss. Backing up your information offline is always an intelligent idea; however, you likely don't have the time to devote to securing your data on a daily basis. For this reason, you need a web hosting provider that offers daily backup services, regardless of the type of hosting you’re looking to purchase.
Prevent Future Data Loss
Daily backup services are about as important as hosting itself, which is why it’s included in dependable providers’ hosting packages. Some business owners utilize offline backup programs to protect their info, but generally online backups are completed by hosting providers. While you may not think you need it, daily backups are crucial, especially if you manage an online business and website. Regardless of the quality of the security systems you have in place, you can still run into difficulties with malware, viruses, and hackers. Therefore, it always pays to take advantage of daily backup service provided by a web host you can trust.
The purpose of a backup service is to preserve data so that it may be recovered easily in the event of accidental loss. While signing up with a reputable provider can lessen the chances of this occurring, no web hosting company can provide a 100% guarantee against unintentional data loss. There are a number of instances that can cause users to lose valuable info, such as error on the part of a provider, natural disasters, and power outages and surges. However, daily backup services can prevent unexpected incidents from affecting you and your product descriptions, images, client information, layouts, etc. Daily backups save business owners the difficulty of having to quickly piece their sites back together after losing their information suddenly.

Are you planning to launch an e-commerce site and need the services of a web hosting provider? If so, there are a number of services and features you should be on the lookout for. Useful add-ons, IT and customer support, and daily backups are three vital components in any good e-commerce web hosting company. Your chosen hosting provider's ability to provision a full range of services geared toward e-commerce websites will play a large role in your business's success.
Before choosing an e-commerce web hosting provider, it's important to consider the number of features you and your customers will benefit from. In addition to reasonable uptime, storage space and bandwidth, reliable providers offer features geared toward online business owners. Quality e-commerce hosting providers typically provide integrated shopping carts and SSL certificates, which allow customers to browse items and make purchases more easily and securely. With the right hosting company, you won’t have to handle integrating a shopping cart feature on your own, or obtain your SSL certificate elsewhere.
IT Support & Customer Service
Any good hosting provider is able to offer helpful and responsive IT and customer support. When you own an e-commerce site, support you can count on is especially important. Many web hosting providers advertise round-the-clock assistance; however, not all live up to this guarantee. Before signing up as a customer, you’ll want to make sure a company answers or returns your phone calls or responds to your emails within a reasonable time frame. With an e-commerce site, a number of issues can occur that require technical assistance. Having the support of a trustworthy provider behind you is reassuring for both you and your customers.
Preemptive Backup Features
Daily backups are another important feature you should look for when choosing an e-commerce web hosting company. While reliable hosting providers take great care in preventing outages and data loss, no company can provide a 100% guarantee that an accident won’t take place. To give clients added peace of mind, many hosting providers offer daily backup services. Even daily backups from your hosting provider can't guarantee the complete integrity of your data in the event of disaster. In the event your business’s resources are lost, you can easily access client information, inventory, product descriptions, content, images, videos and more, only when you have multiple backups in place. Relying on only one source for backups can put your data at risk. Employing multiple backup sources is the best way to have full trust and confidence that your data will always be available for a restore.
Choose a web hosting provider that can provide solid technical support, offers the necessary add-ons to make your e-commerce site solid and provides backups to help you restore your data. JaguarPC has what it takes to make your e-commerce web hosting experience a success.

Social media isn’t a fad. Certain social sites may well turn out to be a fad and become an irrelevance in the longer term, but betting the farm on social media collapsing isn’t a strategy that anyone interested in business success is going to consider.
If your business doesn’t have a social media strategy, then you’re missing a huge number of opportunities. Social media isn’t going to 100% replace traditional marketing avenues, but it is certainly something you should be doing.
Why do you need a social media strategy?
Where the Action Is
Social media is where your audience is. This is true for almost every business, except perhaps those selling goods and services to the elderly. At the same time, those businesses will make a lot of money from younger relatives of that market, so even those in this sector you should use it.
If someone is following you on social media, it’s because they want to know more about you and more about what you do. Using social media, if only on Twitter and Facebook alone, gives you the opportunity to market yourself to an audience that you know is interested in you. Where else are you assured of that?
People Buy People
Yes, this is an oft-used cliché, but it remains true. People buy from people or businesses that they like. If you’re taking the time to build a rapport with your customers, then you’ll be rewarded over time with loyalty, word of mouth marketing and recommendations, and improved profits.
Cost Effective Marketing
Marketing is an expensive outlay for a business, and doesn’t guarantee success. If your social media strategy doesn’t bring the results you’re hoping for, at least you won’t have spent a large portion of your expenditure budget on finding out, which might be the case when you take out an advert in the newspaper or advertise on local radio.
Yes, you’ll make a time investment, but this pales in comparison to the sums you might otherwise spend.
Social media is the best place for people to tell others they love your business, whether that is through a like, a retweet, a re-pin, or another social share. People will connect with you based on a recommendation far quicker than they will if you simply spend time promoting yourself.
If you haven’t developed a social media strategy yet, now is the time to do so. If you wait any longer, you’re likely to be too far behind your competitors who have already embraced social media, and be in a position where it is extremely difficult to catch up.

JaguarPC needs your help! JaguarPC has been in the hosting industry for 15 years. We remain as one of last few privately held hosting companies in the country today. Over the course of this past year we have made some big strides and we are now prepared to enter a new era in web hosting.
Help us to continue to grow and gain greater exposure as an independently owned and operated American company by voting for us in the Intuit Small Business Big Game contest. Your daily vote can help us enter into the next round as a contender for a Super Bowl T.V Commercial prize. It would be an amazing opportunity to tell our story to the country. Help us let American know that independent hosting companies can still survive and thrive. When you support JaguarPC you are supporting not only a high quality hosting provider committed to excellence in technology and customer experience but you are also supporting an iconic idea that individuals can create successful businesses.
In the past few years many hosting companies have been bought up by one or two central players, but JaguarPC remains an independently owned and operated hosting company. Greg Landis, CEO, is a veteran who has pulled this company up by the boot straps and keeps it going and growing by being actively engaged on a day to day basis.
While other hosts have sold out to big companies, Greg Landis has turned down multiple offers because he is truly invested in the principle of personal touch which many mainstream large hosts overlook. JaguarPC exemplifies the “American Dream” of building and running your own business. Greg has built this company from the bottom up and with the help of a talented team of individuals he has been able to maintain JaguarPC as a successful business which he hopes to see his own kids, “little geniuses will run this place some day”, take the helm at some point in the future.
A vote for JaguarPC is a vote for the future of independently owned and operated American businesses. Thank you for your support. We hope to see you at the goal post and that JaguarPC makes a winning touchdown with the help of you and the Intuit Small Business Big Game contest.
Build an Attractive Page
There is nothing worse than a page that might as well have the word ‘GENERIC’ stamped across it in bold lettering.
Don’t be hasty in setting up your page if you’re still to come up with logo and branding, for example, for your business. Much better to be a touch late to the party and start with all cylinders firing than have people form an opinion of a half-baked page, meaning they won’t return later even though you’ve sorted it out.
Ensure that business logos, colors, and anything else are all the same as you have on your regular business website.
Finding an Audience
Facebook themselves tell you that step one is to invite all of your friends to your page. Good advice, but not ideal if none of your Facebook connections have any interest in what it is you do, or if you’ve just joined Facebook purely for launching a business page.
Here are some alternative options that will bring better results:
• Ensure a link to your Facebook page, and/or a ‘like’ box, is added to your website homepage; make this a feature on every page if possible, particularly for liking content.
• Use a social plugin from Facebook that will help you reach out to people with interests in what you do without you needing to be friends with them; this is a great alternative to paid advertising.
• If you already have a healthy blog following, or an email-marketing list, for example, dedicate a full post/message to your new Facebook page, talk about your excitement around it, and encourage everyone to join.
Don’t connect your business Facebook page with other social networks and allow posts from these to appear in your Facebook feed. Doing this with Twitter, for example, will leave your Facebook page filled with short bites of information that might not be relevant to your audience on that site.
Luckily, the trick to getting Facebook right is to treat it as you would a blog. Update content on a regular basis so those who visit your page know when there’ll be updates and something to read, and always respond to queries and feedback, negative or positive.
Remember to vary your content between simple comments, pictures, and links to longer posts.
Never Rely Only on Facebook
All of the guidance here will help you to make a success of your Facebook page. However, don’t rely only on Facebook, both from a website and a social media standpoint. Many businesses actually use social media without having a website, which is never a good idea. As well as Facebook, take the time to identify the other social platforms, including niche sites, where you might be able to build a following.
Social media has taken over the world. Even if you’re not a massive user of social media yourself, it is likely that your company uses it, or you have friends or family members who interact on various social media websites.
That fact alone is enough to demonstrate the importance of social media marketing. The key to any sort of marketing activity is to know where your audience is and connect with them; the fact that everyone is or knows someone who is on social media tells you that, if you’re a business, you need to be on there to connect with as many people as possible.
Not Just a Fad
We’ve gone a long way past the point where social media can be dismissed as something of a fad. With Google+, Twitter, and Facebook having 400 million, 500 million, and one billion global users respectively, it’s fair to assume they’re not going to drop off the radar anytime soon.
These numbers represent a massive global audience and huge potential for businesses to market themselves. A television or newspaper advert, a billboard, or any other type of traditional advertising is unlikely to be able to reach that many people.
Many people use their favorite social media sites for everything, from contacting friends to finding out the latest news. As a result, people will often take what they hear on social sites as gospel. Therefore, these platforms are great for companies who want to enhance and protect their reputation. It doesn’t take long to post a tweet or a Facebook update, whether refuting an allegation made in the press or publicizing some great work that has been done on behalf of a charity, and everything in between.
Brand Building and Awareness
It is easy to create a buzz on a social media site, whether you’re talking about the launch of a new product or publishing news about the company. If you’re able to get something to go viral then you’re going to massively increase your brand awareness around the world.
Another positive aspect of social media marketing is that you’re able to keep your company front and center of everyone’s thoughts. Marketing is all about ‘the hook’ that gets people buying into your brand and remaining loyal to you. While you’re not going to want to bombard people with dozens of updates a day, maintaining your social media presence means you’re always in the thoughts of your audience, and stand a far better chance of making customers of them.
Word of Mouth
This element of social media marketing is the crowning glory for most companies, as once you have a loyal following your marketing takes care of itself; you just publish your message and allow everyone to share it, bookmark it, and spread the word about what you do, which also has a huge impact on SEO.
The trust that people have in the information they receive through social media channels is immense; if a business isn’t set up to maximize the potential from these areas, then their marketing plan needs an urgent review!
