How and where your addiction treatment center’s website is hosted may not be the most glamorous aspect of your business’s online presence, but its importance cannot be overstated. As part of our wide range of online services for addiction treatment and drug rehab companies, Addiction-Rep offers to securely host your website, and going through us provides a multitude of benefits that you won’t see if you go it alone.
Yes, there is a difference between managing a website and hosting it. If you enlist Addiction-Rep to manage and market your rehab center’s website, having us host it as well will streamline communication and billing for all of those necessities. The benefits of Addiction-Rep’s website hosting services include:
When you have Addiction-Rep securely host your rehab treatment center’s website, we find a server that facilitates fast loading times for the user. This helps with the search engine optimization (SEO) value of your website, meaning quick loading times give your site a better chance at ranking higher on search engines like Google.
Additionally, we always make sure your addiction rehab’s website is hosted within the U.S. Ideally, your website’s IP address will be associated with the headquarters of your business. If your website is meant for U.S. consumers but the IP address is based in India or another foreign country, the site could be devalued by Google and other search engines.
The security and performance of websites we host and manage is paramount. If your website were to share a server with malicious or spam-filled sites, the SEO value of your site would suffer. This is why it’s important to not be too frugal when it comes to how your website is hosted. Nevertheless, we offer our website hosting services at affordable rates, and our practices and ongoing support take away any headaches that sometimes arise with hosting an addiction treatment site.
If your addiction treatment company owns multiple websites (such as separate ones for your inpatient rehab and outpatient rehab programs) or one primary site and several microsites, you’ll really see a payoff when you enlist Addiction-Rep to securely host all of the sites attached to your business.
The Addiction-Rep advantage is we can set each of your sites up with a dedicated IP address, which is ideal for SEO purposes. We can also establish each of the websites on separate servers, which is particularly helpful if one of the sites has significantly more content and receives a much higher volume of traffic.
We also offer the option of moving your multiple websites to a cloud-based server. They will share the same IP address, but this cost-effective option works if the content on each of your sites is unique and if they don’t link back and forth between each other. Using the cloud in this situation is helpful because this type of server will automatically update IP addresses periodically.
