When it comes to hosting infrastructure, the wrong platform can significantly compromise your operations. Leveraging the power of Google Cloud Platform, BigCommerce offers multiple layers of security, unparalleled bandwidth, and blazing-fast speed – all allowing you to spend more time on generating sales, and less on monitoring and maintaining your site.
You can’t afford for your store to go down; our highest priority is making sure it doesn’t. Our hosted ecommerce platform has an average uptime of more than 99.99%, which is markedly higher than the ecommerce industry average. The difference could be significant; your store being down only a few minutes per year, versus nearly two days. And we delivered at least 99.995% availability during Cyber Week the last five years running.
A 1-second delay in page load can decrease conversion by 7%. Online stores hosted on BigCommerce are blazing fast on the Google Cloud Platform infrastructure, with an average connection time under 10 milliseconds – resulting in faster page load times, improved conversion, and better customer experience.
It is imperative that hosted ecommerce software is secure. Each BigCommerce store is protected by multiple layers of security to prevent unauthorised access, including perimeter and server-specific firewalls, file integrity scanners, and intrusion detection software. This enables you to focus on growing your business, while we handle the ecommerce hosting and security.
When it comes to thwarting the threat of distributed denial of services (DDoS) attacks, your infrastructure bandwidth is critical. By virtue of BigCommerce’s hosting on Google Cloud Platform, a single Google Data Center has a bisection bandwidth of 1,300 Terabytes per second – yielding a built-in capacity multiple times any traffic load anticipated.
Our servers are PCI DSS 3.2 certified at Level 1, which protects against credit card data breaches and eliminates the massive cost and hassle of handling compliance yourself. We let you accept leading payment methods without worrying about implementing PCI for your online store.
