Website Migration Service to WordPress or WooCommerce
Thinking of switching to WordPress as a CMS for your website or WooCommerce as your eCommerce platform? Our team of experts have extensive experience migrating websites to these platforms so that your site is functioning at its best.
Regular website checks and updates will make sure your website performs well and is safe online. We can help you recover hacked websites or fix slow and inefficient websites to make them perform better and bring in more revenue.
Website audits help identify both technical and content-related issues that may be negatively impacting your site traffic, sales conversions, and search engine rankings.
Depending on the issues you are having with your website, different types of audits may be appropriate. Audits can reveal the source of issues related to performance, accessibility, and inclusivity.
YOUR WEB DOCTOR
There are a number of DIY sites online that will let you “audit” your website. While OK in some cases, they can be like online symptom checkers that guess versus visiting your doctor.
Managing and maintaining your website is a continuous task. We’ll take care of all the updates and fixes needed, leaving you free to concentrate more on your core business. You are assured of professional help and support in times of need.
WordPress, like all software, is continually being updated to add features, fix bugs, and manage new security vulnerabilities. We continually monitor, install, and test all software updates.
Accidents happen, updates go wrong, files are corrupted, you are hacked… and then your site is lost. Having regular backups will give you peace of mind and allow you to simply reload all of your website files.
It is important to identify issues before they affect your customers. If you are hosting your website with AMWS, we can identify in real-time website outages, broken links, lagging load times, and more.
Keeping your website and data safe should be of utmost importance for you and your business. We make sure that your website is safe with up-to-date plugins and make sure your server environment is safe too.
Hackers were busy in 2019 resulting in an increase of 54% in attacks over 2018. Our team of security experts can help detect, prevent, and respond to security threats that may arise.
Web security is critical for websites that handle confidential, private or protected information. Hosting providers protect the servers that run your website, but not your website itself.
Cybercriminals are crafty and sadly, it’s businesses that pay the price. A compromised site can damage both your reputation and your bottom line. Don’t worry, we have a team of tough crime fighters!
Website Performance Tuning
Customers demand fast and reliable websites. If you make them wait, they will frequently go to a competitor’s site to find what they want. Most customers will not wait more than 3 seconds for a web page to load and 46% say they will not return to a slow website.
Faster webpages increase user engagement and conversion rates. Despite the importance of a fast website, most websites are not built to be optimized for speed. We can help you get optimal performance.
Stability can be affected by a number of things, including higher traffic numbers, photos and videos taking up too much space, too many redirects, and more. These are all issues that can be found and fixed.
Search engines rank your site based on a number of factors – speed, stability, keywords, and regular content updates. Google, in particular, will rank you site higher based on its performance on mobile devices.
API & Integrations
There are several possibilities that your service or application can connect and communicate with other third party websites and services. We can help you build a stable API that can connect your service or application with others.
If your site connects to an external source to send or receive data, you will need an API. For example, if your site accepts PayPal, the API is how your site formats the data and communicates with PayPal.
Integration is the process of setting up the interactions between external data sources and your site. Whether your site needs to link to your internal accounting system or a third party supplier, we can help.
Our team of developers has written a number of custom APIs that enable our customers to communicate with unique legacy systems and third party vendors that do not have an API already developed.
Website hosting is as critical to your business as the website itself. The hosting choice you make determines how your website appears on Google and other search engines. Google uses what it calls “Mobile First Indexing” to determine what order your business will appear in the search results; this new indexing no longer cares about your desktop website, it’s all about mobile! Mobile devices are historically the slowest devices that access a website and require a hosting environment that can be tuned based on what device consumers are using to look for your business.
Our hosting and technology professionals are able to ensure that your site will run faster than any of your competitors. We have built custom technology we call the Prometheus Engine™ that tunes and optimizes a website in real-time and connects into our real-time backup and security technology. The Prometheus Engine™ can scale across multiple data centers and providers worldwide either automatically or manually depending upon your business needs. We can break out any feature from your website allowing it to scale as needed. From planning and design through website launch and long term maintenance, we’ve got your hosting needs covered.
AMWS is hosting agnostic; we use multiple vendors depending on the needs and desires of the customer. We host at Linode, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google and Microsoft.
Our hosting services scale across multiple locations and servers. This minimizes risk by ensuring that if one hosting site fails, traffic is automatically rerouted to another location.
Every website we host is setup to be automatically backed up regularly. We keep a full copy of the site that can be reloaded in seconds if your site goes down. Backups are kept for 365 days.
Website Analytics & Reporting
A successful digital marketing strategy is dependent on having relevant data that lets you understand, analyze, and fine tune your efforts. Our team can help your company understand which analytics are important, how to understand and interpret them, and how to optimize your content to improve performance over time.
Web analytics can help you understand your users’ behavior. Learn how many visitors you have, where they are coming from, how long they stay on a page, which paths lead to sales, what type of device they’re using and more.
Online marketing is EXPENSIVE, but is it delivering what you want? We can help you answer critical questions, such as, “Is your online marketing strategy working?” and “Which campaigns are most effective?”
Search engine optimization (SEO) helps people find your site organically. By understanding how your customers behave, you can more effectively target your SEO to get better visibility on search engines.
A multilingual website is one of the highest impact methods of expanding your audience; it is an affordable way of expanding your market reach and increasing your sales. Offering a multilingual site gives you a significant boost over your competitors, improves your rankings in search engines, attracts new consumers, and increases sales.
AMWS has partnered with a third party translation company, which provides business translation services for businesses globally. They staff native speakers with expertise in over 70 languages.
Localization is the process of adapting a website to cater to local linguistic and cultural differences in a target market. Localization offers a more in depth customization than a simple translation.
The Internet was originally all in English, but that’s changing rapidly. A multilingual site lets you quickly enter new markets, is a cost effective marketing tool, increases search engine ranking, and gives you a big competitive advantage.
Website Backup & Recovery
Should anything happen to your website, a backup will be your most valuable asset. Knowing that your website is safe, secure, and that you have a backup that can be recovered in minutes provides the ultimate peace of mind.
TYPES OF BACKUPS
Websites can be backed up multiple ways. You can have a full or mirror backup, in which all data is replicated. There are also incremental or differential backups where only certain website changes are backed up and stored.
Backups can be stored in a variety of ways and locations depending on your needs and budget. Due to the time sensitive nature of websites, you will want to store your backup in a way that it can be recovered and restored quickly.
Recovery is a core part of a good backup plan and any functioning website. It should be tested regularly and updated prior to any changes being made to your site. Multiple people should be trained on how to recover the site.

Business Continuity Planning
COVID-19 has brought the importance of business continuity planning to the forefront. We are lucky to have an expert with over 20 years of business continuity planning experience on our team. We have helped both large and small businesses put systems in place in order to quickly and effectively handle disruptions in business operations before and during a crisis.
We help you analyze potential threats and identify in what ways they may affect your business. Be prepared to deal with being hacked, facing a potential natural disaster or, yes, even a pandemic.
Ensure that your personnel and business assets are protected should a crisis occur. Be prepared to switch to remote operations, alternative delivery methods, and have back ups of your data and IT infrastructure.
Your business continuity procedures must be practiced regularly so your team is prepared if/when disaster strikes. Knowing your business won’t be forced to close should a crisis happen is priceless.
Disaster Recovery & Remote Working
Although related, Business Continuity Planning and Disaster Recovery are not the same, but should be developed in tandem. Disaster recovery specifically focuses on the recovery and continuity of your IT infrastructure, whereas, business continuity focuses on the processes needed to keep your business personnel and assets secure and operational.
Disaster recovery is the process of resuming or maintaining normal business operations by restoring access to hardware, software, networking equipment, connectivity, and data.
TESTING & VALIDATION
Testing of your disaster recovery plan is critical. You should perform random stress tests to guarantee that you are able to rapidly restore operations should the need arise.
Enabling your employees to work remotely is a powerful tool during times of crisis and normal operations. We can help you transition your team to remote operations seamlessly.
