Successful web solutions, eCommerce sites and cloud applications increasingly require extensive knowledge and proactive maintenance to ensure performance, availability and security. As your business grows, demand on your web servers increases, meanwhile you become an increasing target for cyber criminals wanting to penetrate your systems or cause downtime through DDoS attacks. Let Codemakers take this operational headache from you, allowing you to instead focus on building and growing your business.
If your website is currently on a shared hosting platform or residing on a single server, you could be at risk of experiencing downtime in periods of traffic spikes, security issues or through ‘bad neighbours’ draining resources on the platform your site resides on.
Correctly configured cloud hosting has many benefits, including the ability to scale the infrastructure up and down according to demand, which is perfect for seasonal businesses or those that have regular periods of high activity such as event sites, venues and online stores. High availability cloud infrastructure is also inherently more resilient to cyber attacks, keeping your site operational in all but the most prevalent attacks.
We offer a free infrastructure audit to highlight the strengths, weaknesses and risks to your website and hosted data, with recommendations and estimated costs for migrating to a cloud-based solution.
For growing and successful online businesses, ongoing Application Maintenance is an essential aspect of day-to-day business, ensuring your web-based applications continue to meet business requirements and retaining your competitive edge.
We provide a wide range of Application Maintenance services for a broad range of technologies and development languages, including PHP, Ruby-on-Rails and Golang. From extracting data from back-end databases according to your criteria, adding new reports or functionality to admin areas to full-scale redesign and development of public-facing applications and microsites, we can help keep your web-based business running and growing smoothly, meeting customer demand and respond to market forces and competition.
Security is an increasing concern for operators of transactional websites, with more stringent regulations and penalties for non-compliance with the impending GDPR legislation coming into effect. Customer-conscious providers will always take security seriously and can therefore become a competitive advantage for those who implement best practices.
Performance is also a key consideration for eCommerce and lead generation sites, as well as transactional applications, with user demands and reducing concentration spans making every millisecond sacred. Database optimisation, correct hosting configuration, code and asset optimisation work together in reducing load times by freeing resources on your web servers and network bandwidth and increase user satisfaction.

What is worse than your website going down? Finding out first from a customer complaint. Most website outages are first discovered by customers or potential customers, leading to embarrassment and tarnished reputation. Get back in control and avoid this situation with Proactive Monitoring and a Service Level Agreement (SLA) to detect outages and restore your website back to health in super quick time, often before you or your customers even find out.
We deploy a range of proactive monitoring techniques to reduce the impact of server faults, with distributed alerting to notify technicians of unusual load and outages. With correctly configured cloud infrastructure, many faults can be rectified automatically by failover techniques, however with an SLA you can rest assured our technicians are available to monitor and ensure your website and applications come back live as quickly and smoothly as possible. We’ll then attempt to ascertain the cause of the issue and wherever possible implement enhancements to reduce the likelihood of similar issues occuring in the future.
Our SLAs span working hours as a minimum, with evenings and weekends coverage also available. All service agreements are arranged on a bespoke basis to give you the most cost-effective solution according to your business and practical requirements.
