Any small business in County Louth that wants their website accessible to their customers 24/7 needs a good web host. A web host is the physical location of website files, digital media and email accounts. Service providers like XL Websites maintain the server and manage the software that keeps their customers websites live on the Internet.
Many Web hosting service providers such as Irish Hosting, Blacknight and Host.ie all come with restrictions on their shared hosting accounts. At XL Websites we don’t believe in restricting our customers with bandwidth limitations, storage space or email accounts. We offer unlimited everything! Yes, that’s correct – you can have as many databases and you want, as many email accounts and as much storage space as you want. All for €85 per year with technical support when you get stuck with a problem you can’t solve.
How can good web hosting help my business?
Having your website online makes it possible for visitors to engage with your business online. A good web hosting service can help keep your website live and running smoothly with no down-time. This is especially important for e-commerce websites where down-time may cause the business to lose out on sales. If your website is slow or hard to access, customers may also leave your site prematurely after having a negative experience and potentially may never come back.

It’s difficult to understand why anyone would want to hack your website, but they do. Thankfully, we have implemented the best web security currently the industry has to offer. We monitor and blacklist suspicious activity on your hosting account and deflect any attacks. XL Websites use Imunify 360 which offers preemptive security that stops even the malware that scanners are unable to detect!

This layered approach on both the hosting account and the WordPress installation makes it almost impossible for hackers to break into your website.
