Don’t Cut Corners with Speed & Security.
Google says that websites lose significant traffic for each additional second it takes a page to load. Speed matters. Google also incorporates your page-load time into your site’s search rankings.
Faster sites win.
Every day, our security protocols repel hacking attempts from China, Russia, Pakistan and even the US, UK, and Western Europe. To combat the bad guys, we automatically scan for, and fix, hacking attempts to secure your site.
Our guarantee: We’ll do everything we can to ensure your site won’t get hacked.
And if it still gets hacked, we’ll fix it, at no additional charge to you.
Extra Security at No Extra Cost
Now, all of the websites we host are SSL (Secure Socket Layer) certified!
SSL is a security technology that establishes a secure, encrypted connection between a server and a client (a website and a browser); represented by the padlock symbol and “https” prepend to the web address.
What does that mean for your customers?
More safety and security in the exchange of sensitive information, such as personal details, credit card numbers, and login credentials.
What does that mean for you?
An increase in customer trust in your brand, as well as improved organic search rankings.
Hosting Plan Options

With any plan, if your site breaks because of a problem with its hosting, we’ll fix it, fast, at no additional cost.
Option 1: Standard Hosting Plan
The standard plan features very fast and reliable hosting, SSL Encryption, 24-7 uptime monitoring, monthly security updates of the WordPress core + all plugins, and daily backups for guaranteed restoration in the event of data loss.

Option 3: Complimentary Hosting for Marketing Clients
If you’re actively engaged with Lightmark with a marketing budget of $1,000 or more per month, we’re happy to provide the Standard Hosting Plan outlined above FREE of charge.
Rather Host the Website Yourself?
You also have the option to locate your own hosting. However, from our experience, the mass-market hosts, while possibly less expensive, are significantly slower, which can result in lowering your rankings in the search engines and a poor user experience, and they will not provide the WordPress maintenance and regular updating necessary to ensure the security of your WordPress site. However, if you would rather host it yourself, just let us know, and we’ll send you all the information you need to move the site to a new host.
Please let us know which option you’d like so that we can proceed accordingly. As always, thank you for your business!
