Did you know that slow web page loading speeds can significantly hinder achieving your business goals online? When users visit a website, they expect it to load quickly. If it takes too long for a website to load, users may become frustrated and give up. This can lead to a loss of potential customers and a decrease in website traffic.
The Negative Impacts of Poor Website Hosting
Having a slow website can have a massive impact on your business. Slow web hosting can lead to lost customers, decreased search engine rankings, and increased bounce rates. But don't just take it from us; here are some insights from leading experts on the subject!
The most obvious negative impact of slow web hosting is lost customers. Visitors will move on to another website if your website takes too long to load. This means you won't be able to convert those potential customers into actual customers. Slow loading times can also lead to poor user experience and customers leaving your website without purchasing.
The majority of users will only wait 3 seconds for a page to load before leaving, according to a Google study. As a result, your website receives less traffic, has higher bounce rates, and eventually suffers from lower SEO ranks and fewer sales.
Decreased Search Engine Rankings
Search engine rankings are also affected by slow web hosting. Search engines like Google consider website loading times when ranking websites. If your website is slow, it will be ranked lower than faster websites. So, you won't get as much organic traffic. This can have a significant impact on your business.
Some pages are more significant than others and substantially impact visitors' perceptions and actions. Faster homepages, checkout, and login are the most important. This indicates that you should give making these pages faster a higher priority and more attention.
Increased Bounce Rates
Bounce rates are another important metric to consider. Bounce rates measure how many visitors leave your website without taking any action. If your website is slow, visitors will be more likely to leave without taking any action, resulting in a higher bounce rate. This can also harm your business.
According to a Portent study in 2022, a site that loads in 1 second has a conversion rate that is 3x higher than a site that loads in 5 seconds. With each passing second, you lose purchases, subscriptions, downloads, or any other conversion targeted in your marketing funnel.

Reliable and Fast WordPress Hosting from Maennche
Maennche believes that website hosting shouldn't be an afterthought for businesses. That's why we worked to create a website hosting plan that was different. We guarantee reliable website hosting and expand the value our clients receive through weekly maintenance that a human verifies – not a machine. Does your current website host offer you that same courtesy with your hosting plan?
What Makes Maennche's Website Hosting Different?
Maennche leverages the power of Amazon AWS and pairs it with the most experienced website developers in the industry to make website hosting simple yet effective. Our website hosting options were developed from the ground up with reliability, speed, and advanced cybersecurity in mind. We are confident that we've developed the highest quality website hosting solution available at a price that can't be beaten.
With our web hosting services, clients are guaranteed:
Reliability and Enhanced Security
Many modern website hosts will lure in businesses with a low price point. Unfortunately, this low price point also comes with its own disadvantages. When searching for website hosting, businesses may notice the vast differences in pricing. While many of these services will allot shared server space to keep a website active the majority of the time, they often don’t include any resources or tools that may be required, including SSL certificates or extended customer support.
Maennche makes reliability and security a priority with each web hosting contract. This includes maintaining a 99.9% uptime and improved security measures that protect both a business and the customers that they serve. Roughly 80% of all consumers research a business’s website as part of their decision-making process. What benefit does having a website provide to a business if it is inaccessible? Maennche can ensure that your website is accessible and secure at all times with the added peace of mind that help is just a phone call away if issues arise.
A Closer Look at Cybersecurity
Did you know that ransomware attacks occur every 10 seconds? Roughly 71% of all cyberattacks are financially motivated – making eCommerce websites especially vulnerable. Cybersecurity Ventures predicts that cybercrime-related costs will grow yearly by 15% to reach a 10.5 trillion figure by 2025.
Complimentary Website Maintenance
Each website hosting plan provided by Maennche includes complimentary maintenance. A website typically isn’t a resource that can just be created and then forgotten. Just like a storefront, regular updates need to be completed to ensure it doesn’t fall apart. As the world’s leading content management system (CMS), WordPress powers over 40% of the internet. As open-source software, anyone can analyze the WordPress source code to find security holes and exploit them.
As you might imagine, this means that WordPress and any associated plugins are constantly being updated. Unfortunately, one bad line of code could take down your entire website or ruin the user experience you have worked so hard to create. To counteract this problem, Maennche provides complimentary website maintenance weekly to verify security issues are resolved, and everything continues to work as expected. Even if you don’t use WordPress, we can still help!
A Closer Look at Website Maintenance
Did you know that the WordPress Plugin Directory is home to over 55,000 unique plugins? Of these plugins, only 3% have never been updated, while the vast majority receive a new update at least monthly. Some of the most popular plugins to date include Yoast SEO and Contact Form 7 – boasting over 10+ million installations.
Weekly Website Backups
It’s not uncommon for people to protect the things that they love. Protecting your website should be just as important. For a website, regular backups of data, codebases, and other associated data is an insurance policy that can be leveraged when a problem occurs or cybersecurity issues arise. It is often impossible to rebuild without backups, and many businesses are reset back to square one. Unfortunately, this is a problem that happens all too often.
To help combat this issue and ensure peace of mind for our clients, Maennche completes weekly website backups stored on an alternate server. While many website hosting providers think this should be an add-on service with its own fees, we believe it is important and should be included in each hosting plan. If your current website host doesn’t abide by these same principles, it might be time for you to start shopping for one who does.
A Closer Look at Website Backups
Did you know that 75% of small businesses do not have a disaster recovery plan in place? Research shows that of those who do, nearly 60% of data backups are incomplete and approximately 50% of restore attempts are unsuccessful. More than half of these unprepared businesses will not have the budget to recover.
