New partnership creates unique hosting platform, substantially boosting web conversion rates

Reading, UK – 6 October 2009: Online retailers are able to benefit from proven higher conversion rates from their hosted website, following the work announced today between DediPower Managed Hosting and Lost Ferret, the web conversion specialists.

DediPower has become a key part of the Lost Ferret offering, providing improved website performance through a dedicated server, leading to increased conversion rates. Through the managed hosting service, Lost Ferret customers will enjoy proven quicker page upload times and high bandwidth availability, ensuring consumer satisfaction with site performance and reliability.

Mark Bolitho, sales director at Lost Ferret says: “Online consumer tolerance is very low and, if a site fails to deliver quickly, the consumer will look elsewhere. Therefore quality, reliability and virtually zero downtime are mission critical to our business. With DediPower we have a proven partner in whom we trust and we’ve already seen conversion rates increase by moving to good spec dedicated hosting.”

Two customers have already been migrated to the DediPower server – Quiz Clothing and Festive Lights. Both retailers selected Lost Ferret for its proven ability to increase conversion rates. DediPower provides the assurance that a stable platform is underpinning the website and is capable of adapting to any nuance of the site, whether forecast or not. For example, DediPower’s solution architects have planned to address Festive Lights’ seasonal spike in traffic, ensuring the site will continue to run at optimum efficiency during the busy November/December period.

Craig Martin, CEO of DediPower Managed Hosting, added: “Performance is critical to our customers’ online revenue streams. It is well-documented that customers are fickle and will not tolerate a slow online sales process. They will simply find a faster website that meets their needs. By working closely with Lost Ferret, we will ensure its customers enjoy improved conversion rates through reducing the number of abandoned shopping carts and the peace of mind which comes from our specialist managed hosting service.”
