Your website is one of the most powerful tools of communication your church has, but it can be hard to keep up properly. Hosting, servers, maintenance, updates, backups - all can be overwhelming when you're wearing many hats. All of these things are handled for you when you host your church website on Eccles.io. You focus on people, we'll handle the technology.
Whether someone is using their phone, tablet, or computer, they will experience every feature of your site without sacrificing usability. No pinching and zooming necessary!
Backups are a pain, so we handle them for you. Should catastrophe ever strike, we can help you restore your site to any point within the last 30 days.
Getting hacked stinks. No church wants to have their homepage taken over or their content in jeopardy. We secure your website at the server level so you don't have to worry about taking extra precautions. Should you somehow ever get hacked, we fix it. For free. Every site on Eccles.io gets a free SSL certificate from the good folks at Let's Encrypt™ to help encrypt the data sent to and from your church website. This hardens your website security and also gives you a boost in your ranking on Google.
Everything from our servers to our templates is designed for speed. The fact is that when your site is slow, people leave. How fast does your current site load now? If it's 3 seconds or longer, you're losing almost half of your would-be website visitors. On Eccles.io, no matter what your traffic is, your site will be fast and performant. If you need a Content Delivery Network (CDN) for an additional speed boost, that is available for an extra $10/month.
